Free-spirited Bohemian Interior Design

Bohemian decorating style is carefree, relaxed and free-spirited. It allows you to mix color and pattern with vintage pieces for a warm and whimsical space.  Bohemian style exudes warmth and embraces the wandering spirit for a worldly look that is chic and adventurous.

Furnishings for a truly bohemian look should be vintage pieces found at antique stores, yard sales and flea markets. Use older pieces and paint them or leave them with their original patina.  Scarves, shawls and even small rugs can be used to cover pieces and add more bohemian charm.

Victorian settees and sofas blend well with the bohemian style. The lavish velvets, intricate woodwork and curves of Victorian furniture blend well to the bold and colorful bohemian space.

Accent with accessories that look as if you’ve traveled the world, such as colorful mosaic lanterns and gem-colored perfume bottles. Textiles such as intricately patterned and colorful pillows and throws embellished with fringe add softness and splashes of more color.
