The boho-chic style has been gaining ground as a free, cozy, and current decoration trend, creating a light, airy, and cozy environment with a blend of old and new styles.
Boho style goes beyond a mixture of elements, conveying a whole concept, which, being free, can create a lot of uncertainty. The best way to express your personality through decor is by suggesting differentiated proposals, such as choosing boho carpets, curtains, and bedding. Which distances itself from many of the decoration standards we know.
But don't think that boho is a mess. On the contrary, this style is precisely about finding balance in plurality. Were you interested?

This word is derived from the term "bohemian" and refers to a style of living marked by freedom and an interest in the arts. Hippies, gypsies, and artists are examples of people who deviate from most traditional patterns for their creative expression.
Hence, freedom is the central concept in decorating environments in this contemporary style in the same way that the bohemian lifestyle signifies well-being. The mixing of styles is the most important aspect of chic boho decoration.
This concept often unites styles such as vintage, folk, and rustic through romantic furniture, handmade decoration items, DIY for the home, and ethnic prints!
How To Decorate Boho?Now that you better understand the whole concept, it's time to put it into practice and visualize it all coming together! To set up your chic boho decor, you must let your creativity run free and seek to highlight your personality through elements, colors, fabrics, and rugs. How we will build an environment says a lot about you!
Here are some tips on the essential elements that make up chic boho decor:
Boho style colorsTo start your decoration project, you can start by choosing the color palette that you will use in the environment. Again, not a rule, but it's interesting to consult the tables to understand where you can arrive and where to go.
There are no rules regarding the choice of shades in rugs. You can either opt for a more neutral and classic set of colors or use more vibrant and cheerful colors. In this case, a refreshing style feature combines different colors in the same environment. To do this, just ensure that there is harmony between all of them.
Some of the colors we can suggest are: beige, shades of green – a great idea would be olive green – mustard, purple, different types of orange, metallic shades like gold and silver, and all shades of brown.
Those who already feel more comfortable with the style can choose mixing prints and invest in ethnic ones. This is a sure way to go for those who still feel insecure or simply prefer lighter shades. After all, the most neutral tones are the basis of modern decor. So you can start with them and later add more colors.
Boho chic fabricsWithin a boho decor, fabrics are essential to compose the cozy and colorful effect that the concept calls for. Therefore, invest in pillowcase combinations on the pillows, think carefully about the color of the chosen sofa, and count on the help of rugs to enrich your composition.
Rugs are usually used overlapping each other, with prints and color tones that relate to each other. And it is preferable to opt for models that are not so fluffy. To increase the feeling of coziness in the environment, it is better to invest in fluffy and furry fabrics to overlap chairs, armchairs, or the bed with blankets with fringes at the ends.
Thus, an excellent and widely explored idea within this style is the mix of fabric types in the same space. You can do this by combining, for example, a leather sofa with linen rugs and velvet pillows!
Crafts, plants, and decorative accessoriesWhen we decorate handicraft items in boho-chic decoration, many possibilities open up. To compose the environment, you can invest without fear in straw, wicker, or wood accessories.
Other essential elements for these compositions are lamps, crafts, plants, and paintings. Travel souvenirs and storytelling items are also very welcome. Bet on crystals, books, and beautiful vases for your plants!
In addition, the reference to the hippie style that inspires boho gives priority to lightness within the environments to convey a sense of peace and coziness. Therefore, invest in arrangements, succulents, winter gardens, and natural plants in your decor.
Boho chic furniture
As mentioned in previous topics, wood is the most used material for furniture in the boho style. Therefore, to better take advantage of this material's rustic and cozy potential, it is interesting to highlight it in most of the furniture in the house and also bring it to some objects.
As boho is related to the vintage style, rescuing old paintings and furniture no longer valued elsewhere will complement the idea.
Some pieces of furniture reinterpret old styles by themselves, creating a new vintage, so why not make your reinterpretation? For this, count on the overlapping fabrics and pillows mentioned above.
