Boho decor works well with all different interior design styles. Here, we see it centered around a lovely adobe-inspired area rug, setting a desert mood for the space. The seating features throw pillows and blankets that keep with the color scheme created by the area rug while remaining plush and inviting--true to boho fashion. In addition, the house plants in the back add boho flair, as do the textured wall hangings.
Most modern decor styles say that less is more, but there’s no such rule in boho decorating. This beautiful living room sets the foundation with four layered area rugs in a range of colors, textures, and patterns. It continues the look with an indoor jungle vibe thanks to all the house plants and an eclectic array of furniture to create a seating area. Top it all with colorful, textured throw pillows, and you have an exciting bohemian lounge that’s difficult to say no to.
If your living room has the square footage for a reading nook, we highly recommend adding one. A cozy boho nook is the perfect space to curl up with a cup of tea and your favorite novel, but it’s also just a great place to relax. We love the colorful area rug, with its tassels and fun shape, as well as the bright curtains and throw blanket on the accent chair. The vases of flowers complete the look with natural textures, making this little spot even more charming.
Greens and teals are two popular colors used in modern boho and eclectic boho styles. When you choose hues that lean into jewel tones, you add extra vibrancy to the room's design and also create a more elegant, rich color palette. Whether you use these colors purely on the built-ins, furniture, or simple accents, jewel tones are stunning additions to modern boho living rooms.Shop Teal Bohemian Rugs >
Both youthful and traditional boho styles can benefit from layered living room rugs. To follow this room's style and create a more traditional boho living room, center a smaller rug directly atop a larger one. Be sure the bottom rug extends at least one foot past each edge of the top rug to provide the proper visual balance and shine a light on both rugs.
While highly eclectic boho living rooms are incredibly stylish with their various textures, colors, and piecemeal designs, there are also subtle ways to add eclectic style to your living room. Consider the lighting fixtures and metallic finishes used in your living room. Blacks, golds, bronze, and other finishes can be used in your room's key accents to establish that piecemeal style without using it as the largest style element of the room.
Coastal and modern boho styles are easy to blend, since each style has a deep appreciation for natural materials. You may follow this room's example and use coastal imagery in whimsical bohemian ways, or you can do the inverse and use boho patterns in coastal color palettes. There are many ways to blend these two iconic styles, so let creativity reign as you craft your ideal aesthetic.
Like we said before, boho style is very freeing in terms of how you can use colors, patterns, and different styles together. Even in small living rooms like this, you can use bright, daring colors to dominate the room's color scheme. Let this room serve as inspiration that your vibrant boho living room is attainable!
The architecture of this room naturally elevates the entire space's aesthetic with its inset ceiling, crown molding, and tall windows. The furniture and accents you choose can add to the class or stray away from it in order to create a more youthful aesthetic. In this case, the furniture feels very classic with its rounded edges, but the patterns and rug design all work towards a more casual boho style.
Symmetry is an important tool for making your free-spirited boho living room feel more structured. Here, the seating area itself features great symmetry with the rounded sofa and two parallel chairs, but asymmetry is also utilized to bring in that whimsical style. The side tables, ottoman, and the decor on the bookshelves all fit into the room's overarching symmetry, but their designs and placement are more artistic and less formal. Details such as these can help you create a balanced boho space.
The rug you use in your contemporary boho living room will help define the entire room's style and color palette. With more eclectic versions of boho, you can intentionally choose wall art and other decor that are starkly different from the rug to create maximum impact. Regardless of your design philosophy, the rug you use in your room is one of the most important aspects to consider for style and comfort.
Typically, accent colors are used in numerous ways and multiple areas of the room to fit into the room's overarching aesthetic. Follow this room's example by using different colors in seats, pillows, blankets, and vases throughout the entire room. By intentionally spreading out the colors and presenting them in different mediums, you'll create a masterfully designed boho living room.
Light and airy boho living rooms like this one often use white as the primary color on the walls and ceiling. This makes the room a perfect blank canvas to add other colors, textures, and patterns to. Since white is such a versatile color, it is also used in other interior design styles. This means you can easily make a white room fit a coastal boho style, a boho farmhouse style, or a modern boho style.
We hope this collection of boho living room ideas has given you plenty of inspiration to help you decorate a room that suits your style. This fun and free-spirited look allows you to express yourself through your decor to create an inviting living room you’ll love coming home to.
