Bohemian Living

Here are a few styling tips on how to create a bohemian vibe in your beach pad. 

Try one or all of them!!!
  1. Flokati rugs: These sixties style wool shag rugs will add warmth and texture.
  2. Kilim rugs: These flat weave rugs from Turkey are made with geometric patterns in a variety of styles and colors. They look great by themselves, but are extra bohemian layered in groups.
  3. Jewel tones: Look for fabrics with deep vibrant colors in ethnic prints or florals. Add fabric to your home through curtains on windows or in doorways, pillows, upholstery, or blankets.
  4. Wall tapestries: Hang small scale rugs or wall hangings on your walls for a bohemian feel.
  5. Casual book storage: Instead of neatly arranging your books on a shelf, by color, or by size, try letting loose and letting your collection have a mind of its own. Stack up books on tables — or on the floor — and use them as a base for lamps and other decorative objects.
  6. Lots of cushions: The point is to provide an atmosphere where people can chill out. I'm not talking about perfectly punched cushions, but rather piles of scatters haphazardly placed on sofas, or even better, on the floor. The best kinds of bohemian cushions are ones made from old kilim rugs, needlework cushions, or round shaped ones.
  7. Informal art arrangements: Try steering away from perfectly placed artwork and hang a collection of beloved art, record albums, or even just loved objects, on your walls in an informal fashion.
