Style at Home (UK) - - Do It Bohemian Style -

use all as­pects of your room, not just the walls, to layer your look. Voiles draped at the win­dows or over­head and fairy lights strung from the ceil­ing will give the space a ro­man­tic feel. Comfy floor cush­ions will cre­ate the chilled­out vibe you’re af­ter. So whether you go for a bean­bag, scat­ter cush­ion or cosy cube, spread them around your liv­ing space.

Tie -dye is a great way To em­brace boho style – why not do it your­self and dye du­vet cover, cur­tains or Tea Towels

De­sign your own med­i­ta­tion area where you can un­wind at the end of a long day. Pick a peace­ful room and keep it Tv and clut­ter free. make sure you have a com­fort­able chair or floor mats, some scented can­dles and a place where you can play sooth­ing mu­sic.

Coloured light

Stained glass win­dows are typ­i­cal of the boho style, but if your home doesn’t fea­ture any, try paint­ing the glass. Or if you’re look­ing for some­thing less per­ma­ment, you could make a mobile to hang up next to it.

Stack it

This scheme isn’t about us­ing tra­di­tional fur­ni­ture. cre­ate some makeshift stor­age by pil­ing old vintage crates or boxes on top of one an­other and fill them with or­na­ments, books and other items of in­ter­est.

Feel off­beat

Sym­me­try is some­thing that should be steered clear of when in­tro­duc­ing a Bo­hemian vibe. Place rugs, ac­ces­sories and fur­ni­ture at in­ter­est­ing an­gles for a hap­haz­ard feel.
