Bohemian style of interior designing is gaining a lot of popularity in recent days.

If you are wondering what does Bohemian style or theme mean, here is the answer.

The word Bohemian refers to a style which is not by the rule, unconventional and unorthodox.

Within the Boho style, there are two subgroups: One which believes in minimalism and the other in maxim ism. You can choose whichever concept you believe in.

The minimalist Boho home will have clean lines, neutral colors and natural material.

While maximist Boho home represents bold colors, geometric lines and loads of textures and patterns.

Irrespective of what you choose, basic principle remains the same.

Boho style is something that defines the place as cozy, inviting, creative, and unique.

When you enter a Boho themed home you will feel relaxed and feel it is world class.

There are few items which you cannot miss noticing in every Boho home.

These items are the main elements that you have to include while you decorate your Boho home.

They are:

1. Macrame

This is one of the most widely used element in all Boho home.

2. Plants

Plants are an integral part of any Boho home. They bring in a lot of positive vibes.

Plants enhance the beauty of any space. You will be welcomed with a sense of liveliness.

3. Natural wood furniture

Natural wood, especially lighter tones of wood looks fabulous in a Boho home.

They blend in beautifully with neutral color walls. And contrast well with the plants.

These items below are such classic Boho elements in natural wood.

4. Rugs and Carpets

Boho homes are always filled with multiple layers of patterns and textures. Surprisingly, they don’t look crowded or over done.

Carpets and rugs blends seamlessly into this theme.

Be it a Persian rug or an Ikat carpet, anything with bold colors and patterns will look beautiful.

Not just natural wood furniture, but leather furniture also looks very nice in a Bohemian home.

6. Reclaimed or repurposed items

Who says you should always spend to get that most fantastic Boho look.

You can reclaim or repurpose some of your old furniture into something totally new.

For example, the center table in the below image.

7. Go Bold

If you prefer bold over neutral color, do not hesitate to use them.

Use a bold wallpaper, or a carpet, or anything that you please to have, it will all still compliment in its own way.
