Bohemian - a forgiving interior style

A style for interiors that has transcended time is one called bohemian. Each decade it gets re-invented as it borrows from the many different design styles of that era.

A style for interiors that has transcended time is one called bohemian. Each decade it gets re-invented as it borrows from the many different design styles of that era. A style that when applied to interiors looks eclectic, travel inspired and is individual. You can throw different interior items together and call it bohemian. It is forgiving because you can put together furniture from different time periods, choose furnishings you love, gather together mementoes from your travels and it looks considered and not by accident.

Mix and match

Mix and match

Bohemian is a perfect look for those who like mixing and matching colours, textures and patterns. You can put lots of different bright colours together and it doesn’t look like you have been indecisive!

You can also borrow from your favourite interior styles and not have to pick just one. Recent bohemian style incorporates Scandinavian pared back designs and retro seventies elements with the use of hanging jungle plants and exotic fabrics, put them together and you have a bohemian interior! Use of the ethnic, bohemian fabric such as a Kilim or Ikat are perfect for this interior style. See the Byzantine Kilim and the Sivas ikat fabric. You could add in some luxury with velvet fabrics, our JF velvet would make great cushions.



Bohemian style is forgiving because it doesn’t mean a redesign of a room from scratch, it is a gathering of the old and new. Add a seventies sideboard with a modern velvet or leather sofa, an ethnic style coffee table and a Moroccan pouffe and you have the beginnings of the look.

White walls help to keep a room fresh and airy when it is warm in the summer, ethnic prints remind you of holidays. Yet you can layer more cushions in bohemian fabrics, textured throws and floor rugs when it starts to cool off in the autumn.

The style can be made personal because when you add in the personal touches and objects from your travels, your room tells your own story.
