Hey , today we're gonna look at 11 tips that will help you bring a bohemian vibe into your home .
So the first thing you can do to make your home boho is to add texture .
Boho homes are always full of texture .
But how do you actually add texture to your home ?
You always hear this add texture but like what does it mean ?
So the way I like to add texture into my home is by thinking about the things that I enjoy touching .
When I go shopping , things that you enjoy touching are probably gonna be things that bring texture into your room .
You can look at baskets , you can look at macro hangers , woven items , things that are made out of leather , stone , things that are textural blankets , throw pillows , chunky knits , anything that feels cozy is gonna be textural .
The next thing is low level seating .
Boho homes are all about relaxing , hanging out with your friends , you know , kicking back and having a good time .
So low level seating is really gonna encourage that kind of behavior of relaxation .
So what you wanna do is look to adding floor pillows , Moroccan style poofs and Ottomans you could you know those beautiful leather ottomans that you see , often even layering cozy rugs to just kind of invite people to sit on the floor and stay a while , not only low level seating , but also lower coffee tables in the bedroom , maybe a lower bed , low level furniture .
The next tip is to not use a lot of heavy dark furniture , lighter woods are gonna be a much better backdrop for all the colors and patterns that you're incorporating into your room .
Dark furniture tends to be quite heavy , especially if you think of those dark IKEA pieces of furniture that often are seen around .
Um They , they might look great in a more modern setting , but in a boho setting , it's great to go for maybe lighter woods .
You will wanna remember however , to have one smaller dark element in your room such as maybe like a side table that will help to anchor your room .
The next tip is to add plants into your room .
You definitely wanna have plants .
If you're going for a boho , look any boho room you see on Instagram or on the internet is gonna have plants .
I guarantee it .
Plants add this beautiful jungly vibe to any space and they brighten a room and they freshen it and they just also add to the overall decor .
So you wanna definitely try and incorporate plants whether they're potted or hanging .
Um , plants are just gonna add so much to your space .
I actually did another video about hanging plants if you wanna check that out .
The link is in the description below .
Another great thing about adding a lot of plants to your space is that you can add planters .
Planters are a great except to add a fun splash of color into your room to add texture into your room .
They're a great way to enhance your boho space .
Some plants that are really popular in Boho settings are cacti monster .
Any tropical plants are really popular .
If you have the right kind of temperature in your home and the you live in the right kind of climate .
Definitely tropical plants are really .
The next tip is to use a variety of different light sources .
You don't wanna just stick to one overhead light if you can , you wanna try and mix in like a variety of different types of light sources .
So if you have an overhead light and it's like a boob light , you know those boob lights , if you can switch that out for like a a woven pendant or something like that , that would be a great start .
And then maybe floor lamps , table lamps , lanterns , candles , string lights , you name it just try and create clusters of illumination uh maybe in conversation areas so that you create this very laid back .
Boho Vibe tip number six is to use rugs .
If you want a Boho room , you gotta use rugs if you can especially vintage rugs .
Moroccan rugs .
These are really , really gonna add to that global eclectic feel .
Layering rugs can also be more cost effective if you have a really big room and you can't buy a giant rug to fill it .
It can get pretty pricey .
You can layer smaller rugs to kind of cover more space .
Ideally , you spend less because the rugs are smaller .
Another way to cost effectively layer rugs is to use a jute rug as a base .
Jute rugs are quite affordable and then layer a Persian Arm Moroccan rug on top of that , that looks really great .
It adds that cozy feel and adds the boho vibes for sure .
Another tip is to use pa you can use patterns sparingly or you can use a ton of patterns .
It's totally up to you .
You want to try and coordinate colors somewhat .
So if you're not sure where to start with picking your patterns , try and pick an overarching color palette , for example , gold and purple or you know , blue and green or any two colors or three colors that inspire you and then get patterns that derive from that palette .
You also wanna make sure if you're using a lot of patterns or even just one large bold pattern that your eye also has space to rest .
So for example , if you use like a beautiful colorful tapestry over your bed or over your sofa , that then you kind of pair it back with a neutral bedding or a neutral sofa because otherwise it's gonna become a visual overload and you don't necessarily want that .
You can go for that look if you want , but it's better if you can allow your eyes to rest in certain areas of the room .
So the next step is to add some kind of vintage element into your room .
If you're doing a boho living room , for example , you could try and look for a vintage chair .
Uh whether it be an arm chair or even just a wooden chair or a coffee table .
Vintage items are really gonna add some character to your room because they're worn , they tell a story and that's really what Boho Decor is about .
It's trying to tell a story .
So the next tip is to add something painted in a bright color .
You don't have to , but it really helps add vibrancy and happiness to your space .
Boho isn't sterile .
Boho is fun .
Boho is light hearted .
So if you can add something like a painted door , a bright yellow door or you know , a turquoise chair or something , even like a modern piece of furniture that you paint a bright color , that's really gonna add a nice pop of interest to your room .
The next step isn't strictly Decor related , but it is important in the home and that's home fragrance , don't underestimate the importance of having a nice smelling home .
It really does wonders for the way you and others will feel when they're in your home unless you pick a fragrance that your guests hate .
It's a really personal choice .
Um , so you can go from wax melts to scented candles to incense to just spraying perfume around the house .
It's great to have a home that smells nice .
You don't wanna be smelling your fried fish from last night .
You wanna smell something beautiful in your home that makes you feel relaxed and at ease .
So the last tip is to add things that you love to your home , try and surround yourself with things that spark joy .
As Mary Kondo would say you want to have things that make you happy .
This rule is true for any style you always want to be surrounded by things that you love .
Boho style takes time .
It's technically , it's a style that develops as you acquire items from your travels around the world and that's what makes it feel global and that's what makes it feel so diverse and interesting .
Um That's not always possible for us to travel the world and acquire items .
The important thing is that when you're shopping , you are truly buying things that speak to you in some way , whether it's because of their texture or the way they look or the way they make you feel , you always want something that you feel you love otherwise , why is it in your space ?
