Let’s see the Boho Chic decoration ideas.
In this section, we focus on Boho chic decoration, a variant of the Bohemian style in which starting from that same base. We add an elegant touch through small elements or more glamorous details. This type of decoration is the result of free spirits, dreamers, who seek naturalness and without losing that essence, create daring spaces with personality at the same time elegant and stylish. Let’s focus on its most salient features.
Boho Chic decoration key pieces
One of the main keys by which the Boho chic decoration is considered a variant of the Bohemian style is precisely the use of some more outstanding and exclusive piece in the decoration, antiques or design elements that stand out from the set and are the center of all the looks.
A restored armchair, a mirror with personality, your grandmother’s lamp or an accessory of our favorite designer. Any piece with charm and that for us has a special value, will help us complement our decoration and will be key to achieving that chic point we are looking for.
Memories of those trips
It’s time to remove the dust and recover our little treasures from those trips that our family and friends made or did. They can be the star piece!
Bohemian style is characterized by the mixture, and the incorporation of ethnic objects or from other cultures can greatly enrich the whole.
Paintings, instruments, figures, tapestries, carpets, cushions, lamps, masks … Regardless of where they come from, we can create a small corner in which to combine various elements. In this way it will be easy to create environments with identity, lived, that tell stories, and that comes naturally.
Abundant use of textiles
Textiles become an essential element in this type of decoration. And they also do it with daring designs of bright colors and striking patterns that combine.
The spaces to relax and meditate are important within a more bohemian lifestyle and hence the abundant use of textiles that will help us design more comfortable, warm and welcoming environments enhancing the corners of relaxation.
The cushions are indispensable and against more … Better! They are perfect in both living rooms and bedrooms and tend to group freely with very diverse prints.
The textiles also flood the walls in any room with colorful tapestries or colorful handkerchiefs, especially in the living rooms or in the heads of the bedrooms.
In the bedroom, we will also play with textiles and bedding mixing different fabrics and cushions. An important requirement is that the bed is well dressed, as in the case of the lounge cushions, in the beds against the better. Sheets, bedspreads, bedspreads, blankets, decorative fabrics, and cushions! … many cushions!
Again we see the importance of the textile in the chic boho decoration since the doors tend to be replaced by fluffy cloth curtains, macramé or delicate rows of beads and beads.
For the little ones, you can not miss a teepee! More fabrics and cushions for the nursery that will protect the kids from the cold ground with a plus of bohemian fantasy. This option will be ideal for creating a nice reading corner or a space to play quietly.
And finally, the carpets will also occupy an important place and we will see them. Especially the most traditional ones, such as the Madrid model from the line of cheap carpets by Dicoro, with exotic motifs, recycled or in full color like the Betty model of the original carpet line.
All kinds of hanging decorative elements will give a very bohemian air to our home.
The climbing plants will be a good option and if not we can also hang the pots with stylish macrame supports or create eye-catching compositions with glass jars and cheerful flowers.
Mobile phones made by ourselves or handmade decorative elements from other cultures such as dream catchers or pajakis will also be good candidates to add color, joy and that more exotic and global point of bohemian decoration.
We can be inspired by nature, reuse and recycle materials to create creations of the chicest.
Fringes, pom-poms, and tassels can not be missing in our Boho chic decoration. They will give a fun and casual air to the spaces. We can choose to hang this type of elements directly on the ceiling, walls or doorknobs or apply them to other objects such as curtains, cushions or bedding.
Hammocks, hanging chairs or swings to relax are also a key object that can make a difference in our home. Why not hang a hammock in the bedroom or the middle of the living room?
Nature at home for a boho chic decoration
In my point of view, plants must exist in almost any decoration. But for a Boho-chic decoration, you can not miss the vines, bulky, exotic and wild plants.
Lovers of nature, slow movement and enjoy the small pleasures of life. The bohemian spirits look for spaces in which to relax and whether they are interior or exterior, if we have the possibility of setting up a Chill out area, it will be a highlight for our Boho chic decoration.
If we have a terrace, a garden, a porch or a small balcony better but we can always design a space in the interior that seems exterior. Taking advantage of the large windows and the effect of the plants we can get very cozy corners.
Colors become indisputable protagonists of this style. In some cases, dark shades such as intense green, blue or violet are chosen for the walls, but when they are used for decorative elements, bright colors that transmit joy such as violets, turquoises, intense fuchsias, blues, and oranges are usually combined.
In the Bohemian style, color is often used in abundance in walls, fabrics, decorative objects … but if we want to make a Boho chic decoration we can regulate the color according to our taste.
Are you staying in full color or more relaxed spaces with striking touches of color?
The wallpapers and striking tiles in Arabic or patchwork style that mix different drawings, are also a very used resource for boho chic decoration. Intense colors and daring prints can give a very chic touch to our walls.
Well decorated walls
As we said before: in the Boho chic style there is a lot of everything and the walls could not be less! In addition to the hanging decorations that we saw before, we can also decorate with more traditional resources such as paintings and mirrors that will help us accentuate that chic point we are looking for.
Creative composition of paintings will be very interesting and will add personality to the decoration. And we can also do it in any room. How about in the bathroom?
Mirrors are also a seductive object for any wall. A composition of well-chosen pieces can give very good results.
Dim and warm lighting
Candles, luminous decorations, ambient lights that provide calm and relaxed atmospheres are typical of this style.
We will bet then by several points of light of a low intensity that we can turn off or on depending on the needs of each moment before opting for the lighting of great power.
