When you think boho, you think relaxed and peaceful. That is precisely the vibe you should be going for – comfortable furniture that seems welcoming. A significant part of the feel is also the colors. Although many people like to match colors and often resort to the minimal color palette for their entire house, that is exactly the opposite of the boho style. Make sure to have a lot of patterns and colors scattered around the place.
Rugs, cushions, pillows, and sofas are the furniture you need to pay extra attention to, because these are basically the pillars of comfortable looking home. Make a space that reduces stress and encourages conversation or other relaxing activities, like reading.
Use vintage items

With the modern style ruling the furniture shops all across the world, the best places to find vintage items are second-hand stores. Another bonus is not having a massive hole in your pocket after each purchase. You would be surprised at how easy it is to find a piece of furniture that exactly matches the boho-chic style in any of the thrift stores.
But let me mention color, once again. Depending on what style you are trying to mimic, there is always a chance that your room will end up looking like a big pile of mess. If you want to make sure that this does not happen to you, I will let you on a little secret. For a more clean and modern look, and if you are not bold enough to go all in, stick to the main natural color and add splashes of color and personality with little details. For example, make the big items one color and add colorful small objects all around the room.
Get creative. There are no rules to follow or obey, just create something playful and calm. Make your house a home in which you feel happy. This is what the hippie culture is all about – make your life your own and do whatever makes you happy and content.
Although if you like to follow some rules, look for inspiration online and try to copy whatever you like, but do not forget to add a personal touch to everything. Showing your uniqueness is beautiful and highly encouraged.
