Bohemian inspiration: mixing cultures

The bohemian style is also the mixture and the mix of cultures from around the world. Synonymous with travel and encounters, bohemian style takes place in our interiors. From this desire for a deep return to the essential, to nature or to escape, the house becomes a land of welcome with an almost wild decoration.

The freedom offered by this style where things don’t need to be perfectly coordinated is a real outlet for those who like to mix influences. Inspired by the nomadic world, the bohemian style offers a warm and mysterious interior where the worlds intermingle. Natural materials, ethnic patterns or design and geometric furniture … The bohemian style advocates a decorative universe that is free, imperfect and that everyone can appropriate by interpreting it in its own way.

Simple and effective, follow these principles to create a bohemian interior full of history:

Wicker baskets everywhere!

The woven basket? It is the essential accessory for a trendy bohemian decoration. In wicker, rattan, small, large, on the floor or wall, let yourself be invaded by these baskets full of surprises! It will find its place according to the room in which it is located.

Overlap textiles with ethnic patterns

Worked in natural materials such as cotton, wool, linen or soft plaid, the textile has a very important place in the bohemian style. It comes in all shapes and colors but also with patterns (especially ethnic)! Superimpose patterns and warm colors for a cozy and bohemian effect.

Go for natural materials

Bohemian illustrates naturalness, freedom, sunshine and travel… Opt for natural materials in your interior to keep this guideline. We will look at solid wood, rattan, wicker, travertine but also on plant and mineral materials that add softness to your room. Natural materials come in all shapes and sizes: furniture, accessories, hangers, mirrors..

Say hello to plants

We tell you again, bohemian rhymes with nature. Plant your home to give it vitality and freshness. Plants can be found on the ground, on pedestals, but also suspended in pretty pots!

More curtains and less curtains

You’ve got it, the bohemian inspiration is light, fresh and fluid, which is why we opt more for pretty sheer linen curtains, instead of thick and blackout curtains. We let the light pass and we let ourselves be carried by satin and colored veils that illuminate the room.

Fall in love with the Berber carpet !

It is the flagship and essential element of bohemian decoration: the Berber carpet! Both full of history, colorful and patterned, the Berber rug is the piece to have for a bohemian style. In all sizes and shapes, it will find its place in your home. As well placed in the entrance, in the living room or in a bedroom, it brings warmth and dynamism to your room in a glance.

We told you … the rocking chair is making a comeback but beware, for a bohemian atmosphere they are not all welcome! We favor the rattan rocking chair with patterned cushions to give it some pizzazz
