Filled with plenty of texture, the right mix of earthy neutrals and bright colors, and tons of feel-good vibes, boho accents instantly make a space feel lighter and brighter.
The term bohemian was coined in the 1800s and referred to people who lived artistic, unconventional lives. In much the same vein, today’s bohemian interiors embrace this free-spirit vibe with unexpected design choices that seem to magically go together.
Unlike many other design styles, bohemian interiors don’t have a lot of rules, except creating a sense of fun and expressing your style. These spaces are relaxed, welcoming, and comfortable, with an approachability that is hard to define.
However, there are some specific elements of the style, such as:
- Bold patterns and colors
- Vintage furniture and textiles
- Touches of nature
- Handicraft materials
- Souvenirs from different countries
- Comfy vibe
- Lighting that reflects this aesthetic
As with anything, this popular style has many interpretations, from bold to subtle, which makes it versatile and adaptable to many spaces. Below are some bohemian lighting ideas that brighten up any room.
