At a Glance:
A boho living room is an inviting and casual space curated for function and style. It’s also an opportunity to mix, match, and put your creativity to the test. Like eclectic style, you can incorporate a lot of fun furniture pieces, accessories, and textiles in a boho living room design. Warm, creamy neutrals and desert tones are a signature of this style. If you’ve been looking for a way to make your living room more reflective of your carefree and artistic side, boho might be the right style for you.
Boho, short for Bohemian, style is a casual and inviting take on eclectic style that embraces warm colors, plenty of textures, and a laid back vibe. It carries a carefree and unconventional connotation, which makes sense because it is inspired by travelers, actors, writers, and other artists who lead fairly unconventional lives. Thus, boho style invites you to let your creativity run free. You can mix and match textures, patterns, and colors for a truly unique space. Keep reading for more detailed advice on how to implement boho style in your home.
➤ Color Palette: Boho features a lot of white, warm colors, and warm-toned neutrals. A boho design can be strictly neutral or incorporate a large dose of color. Warm desert tones like rust orange, dusty rose, or mustard yellow are all very boho. You can also choose cooler tones, but make sure they’re saturated colors, like a deep teal.
➤ Pattern and Fringe: Pattern and fringe are both invited to the boho party. Both of these elements add visual interest and give your room a casual, layered feel. Fringe and tassels can be found on pillows, rugs, or curtains while patterns can go almost anywhere from pillows to rugs to a tapestry on the wall. You also have creative license to mix patterns throughout the room.
➤ Texture: Texture is key for creating a boho-inspired living room. Texture adds visual interest and warmth, which contribute to the relaxing vibe. Fringe can add texture but so can wicker or rattan pieces. A jute rug or woven tapestry are other ideas for adding texture to your space.
➤ Overall Vibe: Boho design is known for being casual, inviting, and globally inspired.
➤ Light: Part of the inviting feel of a boho living room is its emphasis on light. If your room doesn’t have a lot of natural light, you can incorporate lamps and overhead lighting or lean into a moodier, jewel-toned take on boho design.
➤ Bring in the Plants: A boho living room isn’t complete without a houseplant–or five–to bring in a fresh, natural element.

If you’re looking for a way to incorporate more storage into your living room, consider the Brewer Chest. It has a little bit of a coastal feel to it, which fits right into the laid-back vibe of a boho living room. If you have a bare corner or length of wall space, this chest is an excellent way to gain storage in a room that usually lacks hidden storage. We love the warm white and the natural feel of the darker wood top.
