Modern Bed Decor

Despite the overall modern feeling of this bedroom setup, it still successfully has a strong bohemian presence thanks to the inclusion of on-theme accents. Bringing multiple styles together can be tough to tackle, but this interior is one to take notes from if you want to marry modern with boho ASAP. With the frameless oversized photograph, contemporary brass sconces and crisp white palette, the introduction of soft boho throw pillows balances this space out to perfection.

Wow With Wallpaper

There’s no need to sacrifice the styles that you already love if you want to give your space an overall boho feel, and this seating area proves that perfectly. Keep your existing furniture — whether it's mid-century or farmhouse — and slowly work some relaxed components in to amp up those bohemian vibes. The wallpaper on these walls is a fresh approach to nailing this sought after style in an unexpected way.

Layered Rugs

Give your interior the ultimate design-forward update by simply getting creative with how you display those rugs of yours on the floor. Skip traditional placement ideas and get to layering to achieve the coolest boho-chic space without having to commit to changing your whole layout.

Curated Corner

Rather than sticking to the expected options when it comes to boho style, break away from the colorful prints and intricate textures and try a more relaxed approach. With an understated neutral color palette and clean lines, this curated seating area feels without going overboard. A simple leather bench topped with macrame-inspired throw pillows only takes up a small amount of square footage, but makes a big impact.

Hanging Textile

While there is a long list of boho textiles you could choose from — from tapestries to detailed macrame hangings — we can’t help but swoon over this bold rug hung front and center on the wall. While it would have added undeniable personality to the floors, getting it up at eye-level truly lets the rug shine. Grab a neutral choice or one with a vibrant color palette to highlight any wall that needs a boost in boho cool.

Relax With Rattan

While you may want to steer clear of some of the obvious boho choices, there are plenty of ways to take advantage of these staples in new and modern ways. When it comes to rattan, try grabbing some choices with a unique overall shape and appearance. With their curved frame and natural string ties, these chairs are anything but ordinary.

Boho Batik Upholstery

While the fundamentals are already in place to make this living space look totally cool, the blue batik fabric is really what makes the space. Paired with modern chairs and crisp white contrasts, this textile choice turns the space into a unique boho statement.

Cozy Seating Area

Take all of the classic elements associated with bohemian style and bring them together for a next-level look that will wow any guest. With brightly hued rugs, an oversized bench rocking a neutral leather and floor pillows, this nook quickly becomes the centerpiece of the space. Go above and beyond by working in a modern piece of art leaning on the wall to tie this cozy seating setup together.

Mixed Prints

Mixing and matching a variety of different prints is a no-fail way to achieve the ideal boho-inspired style. Introduce different patterns and colorways to create a stylish look that is still laid back and approachable. Start with the wallpaper and keep the trend going by working different patterns in throughout the space to create an eclectic room that still feels ultra soft and inviting.

Bohemian Benches

With the help of a neutral bench tucked in the nook and an assortment of patterned pillows and plush sheepskin textiles, this spot gets a sprucing that is guaranteed to turn it into a must-see area of you home. Not sold on trendy accents? This style can be pulled off perfectly in a more rustic and homey way too.
