Interior Design Style Guide: Bohemian Design

Over recent years, bohemian style has become a global trend. The style’s colorful, textured, multi-cultural blend of layers and features is something you simply cannot forget. While bohemian style is a rule-free, care-free design, warm neutral colors and lively jewel tones are most common.

History of Bohemian Style

Historically, the term “bohemian” is derived from the French expression “La Boheme,” meaning Gypsy. It is believed that this style was born out of Bohemia, which was home to a large Gypsy population. These Gypsies lived by their own set of rules and that lifestyle was reflected in their personal style.

Today, the expression “bohemian” is primarily used to describe the bohemian lifestyle that became well-known thanks to most 19thcentury artists. This new use of the phrase was likely because the artists lived similarly unique lifestyles to the Gypsies.


Elements of Bohemian Design

Implementing bohemian design best suits someone who enjoys off-the-cuff decisions, bold color combinations, layered rugs, multiple textures, vibrant patterns and leafy houseplants. Combining these unique elements creates a space filled with personality and warmth. Other style characteristics include:

  • Vintage furniture
  • Throw rugs
  • Lounges
  • Daybeds
  • Floor cushions
  • Warm lighting
  • Heirlooms
