The Cool, Boho Look You're Going to See Everywhere This Summer

Prepare to be swept off your feet. 

Summer is the season of off-duty style, when we collectively agree to put up our feet and take it easy. In the past, this meant kicking back on swan floats and palm-printed thrones, but this year, we're drawn to an enticing newcomer: the rattan swing chair.

Effortlessly cool and comfortable, these boho-chic jewels were made for lounging on summer afternoons. And as it turns out, our designers think so, too. Here are five of the best, laid-back looks you'll be seeing everywhere soon.

Settle into those lazy days ahead with a swing chair inspired by the southwest. For her own daughter's room, Arizona designer Joanna Gick of J&J Design Group drew on pom-poms, cactus-shaped pillows and southwestern prints to channel the chill vibes of the desert.

Bring this boho look home with layers of soft textures in saturated colors. Brilliant pinks, violets and blues are a great way to capture the landscape at sunset.

Boho-Chic Bedroom With Desert Colors

Pops of pink, coral and yellow abound in this boho-chic girl's room, capturing the vibrant colors of the Arizona desert at sunset. Shiplap walls, wood floors and neutral curtains ensure that the space will grow with the child.

Daybed Features Mixed Patterns

On the daybed, patterned pillows and throws play well together thanks to their similar shapes and colors. The resulting design is visually interesting, without distracting from sleep.

Woven Dreamcatcher, Watercolor Wall Art

A deamcatcher hangs over the bed, its blue and pink tassels echoing the colors in the throw pillows. Two watercolor cactuses custom-made by designer Joanna Gick further draw the beauty of the desert inside.

Coral Nightstands For Storage

On either end of the bed, coral-colored nightstands keep picture books within arm's reach. A stuffed flamingo complements the piece, and makes a snuggly companion for reading.

Layers of Texture

For a truly bohemian look, the designers layered the space with faux-fur pillows, cotton linens and an area rug. Not only do these accents keep the room soft, but they can also be switched out as the child grows older.

Gilded Gallery Wall

Matching gold frames add a touch of sparkle to the walls, as well as create cohesion among the artwork. With wire diamonds and unicorn accents in between, the display is equal parts chic and sweet.

Colorful, Creative Corner

A pink desk and wishbone-style chair provide a workspace for the little girl, giving her room to write or draw. Art on all sides heightens the space and encourages creativity.

Seaside Serenity

If you'd rather be somewhere dangling your feet over the water, then you're in luck. Designer Shannon Wilkins of PRAIRIE shows us how to give rattan chairs a coastal touch by pairing their sandy hues with sea-blue bed linens.

With the same colors in your space, you'll feel that much more in tune with the ocean. All you need now is sand between your toes and the sound of seagulls to bring it home.

Once you ease into this breezy, minimalist gem, your troubles will never weigh you down again.
