Super-Casual Seating

Poufs and oversized floor pillows are a great way to incorporate bohemian-inspired form and functionality. When you're not using poufs as ottomans, they also serve as extra seating.

Layered Hues

Thoughtfully layering a few different colors throughout a space gives it a fun-loving energy that's also sophisticated. Whether it's via bold-colored pillows, flowy curtains or a statement rug, having a variety of colors in play ensures the room feels a bit eclectic.

Hanging Around

Macrame swing chairs are an awesome '70s throwback, but they also instantly dial up the fun factor. And because they're suspended above the floor, they can make a small space feel larger. The fringe, pattern and texture of this rope chair make it a boho classic.

Plants Galore

There's one thing you really can't have enough of when it comes to creating a bohemian oasis: plants! Varying the size, texture and height of plants will make the grouping feel a bit wild — a hallmark of boho-inspired style.

Easy Entertaining

Rethink how you use your outdoor furniture. A potting bench can serve as an excellent bar or buffet when it's time for alfresco gatherings. Bring out a vase with cut flowers, your favorite pinot and a bucket of icy beverages, and you're ready to entertain in a snap.

Romantic Lighting

Ditch the traditional overhead light fixture for a looser approach to lighting. Vintage-inspired cafe lights strung along the ceiling add extra ambiance and cast a warm, romantic glow that feels just right day or night.

Cozy Candles

Candles are a bohemian essential. In fact, the more the better. Small votives are a no-fuss way to bathe the space in cozy lighting. And if you have unwanted guests buzzing about, add a few citronella candles into your lineup. Note: Opt for LED candles if there are flowy fabrics or fringed accessories nearby.

Punched-Up Palette

Usually, an eclectic, boho-inspired palette is more vibrant than it is serene. Whether you opt for rich, earthy tones or bright hues, they'll instantly punch up the energy. Go-to accent colors are deep reds, rusty oranges and jewel tones like jade green or turquoise.

Au Naturale

Gorgeous boho-style interiors usually incorporate wood tones. Wood furniture, small accent pieces and eclectic accessories are an easy way to bring in natural texture and warmth.

Fenced In

It's easy to think fences are all about privacy, but they can also play an important part in your pin-worthy boho decor. Even a section of pressure-treated fencing or lattice paneling can serve as an interesting textural accent or focal point in the space.
