It is true when we think about the Bohemian style interiors, the first elements come into mind are fabrics, textiles, trims, rugs, kilims and carpets. Lots of deep and vibrant colors, textures, floral and ethnic patterns welcomes the free-spirit who constantly discovers over the boundaries living style. The Bohemianism is inspired by the Gypsy’ s social unconventionality. Therefore, Bohemian style people are true wanderers, adventurers and vagabonds. They love traveling, exploring and collecting items from the places they visited to. Artworks, lots of books, objects made by craft people, local handmade textiles and kilims are the indispensable elements of Bohemian style interior. Creativity and sensitivity are the messenger of this unique and warm-hearted life philosophy. Boho living is more like a state of mind rather than a fashion trend. Although, in many design collections we come across by the fashion trends who are so much inspired by the Bohemian style.
Since there are many items and vibrant colors taking a place in Bohemian interiors, there is a risk of killing the space with overcrowded and cluttered look. As a rule of good design to stay in balance is very important. For instance, what we call as Modern boho style creates a harmony using white grounds and plain, simple objects next to busy patterns and vibrant colors. This method easily helps space to take a breath and give an immediate contemporary look…
Vibrant bold rich colors such as reds, purple, hot pink, indigo adds interest to the room and uplifts the mood. On the other hand, earthy colors like brown and golden colors takes an important role in Bohemian style. Organic dyed traditional kilims are integral parts of Bohemian style rooms.
Since Bohemian style has free spirit, it enjoys to live in exterior atmospheres and to use the outdoor spaces as an extension of homes. Just as in nomadic style living this time kilims, fabrics and comfortable pillows are carried outside. While taking a fresh air it is an exquisite feeling to see all these wonderful texture and materials next to nature.
One of the most exciting part of the romantic and intimate Bohemian style that it always encourages change and transitions. Since, so much accessories and fabrics take a place in interior, it is so easy to make changes and give a total different look in living spaces. If you want to create your own style at home this weekend, you may try your own possibilities for example just by moving the kilim from the floor and placing on to your favorite sofa or taking out to your backyard and decorating it by tens of candles around it… Or something else, whatever you do just be creative and try to cross your own boundaries. Play with the gypsy in you and have fun:)
