For an easy update to your boho living room, consider adding a new collection of throw pillows or updating your gallery wall.

Small changes can have a big impact and are an easy way to refresh your space without a complete overhaul.

The bright pink and blue throw cushions against the green couch elevates the boho aesthetic and really pulls the furniture together.

The green cactus really ties the living room furniture and style together, house plants bring that organic feel into your space.

A bohemian chic living room is a celebration of color. Think bold colors, vibrant accents, and a colorful palette that brings a dynamic and inviting warmth to your living space.

I love how this room incorporates neutrals, oranges, electric blue and green shades. It sounds like it shouldn't work but it really makes the place come alive.

4. Selecting Rattan Furniture

Rattan furniture is a staple of boho decor, offering both an earthy touch and a light, airy feel.

Pieces like this rattan armchair or a rattan coffee table can become focal points that enhance the bohemian vibe.

Boho decor is all about the mix—not just of different styles, but also of different eras.

Don't underestimate the power of small decorative items like candles, bowls, plants and ceramics.

Flea markets and thrift stores are treasure troves for finding those perfect accent pieces that add character and a story to your room.

6. Incorporating Colorful Patterns

Colorful patterns bring life and energy to a boho-style room. Whether it's through wallpaper, textiles, or art, patterns are a fun way to inject personality into your space.

This living room incorporates a patterned area rug against an otherwise neutral colored space. This makes the pattern add some brightness and not feel overwhelming.

A gallery wall can serve as a great place to display your favorite things.

From artwork to photos, to textile art like macrame wall hangings, this eclectic mix of colors and textures adds visual interest to your boho space.

For this gallery wall I love how they used different frames and shapes, this mix and match style makes it all blend together!

8. Mixing Different Patterns

Fearlessly combine different patterns in your throw pillows, area rugs, and upholstery.

This bohemian interior design is not shy about pattern play, they're using tasseled throws and patterned rugs to create visual appeal.

Indoor plants not only purify the air but also add a pop of color and a lively energy to your boho living room decor.

They're a great way to create a connection to nature right in your living space.

Area rugs are more than just floor coverings in a boho-style living room.

They're a foundation for layering, adding lots of textures, and establishing a warm color scheme.

This living room mixes different patterns and grey and neutral tones with pops of green. I love the mixing of the materials in this room.

11. Achieving the Boho Vibe with Throw Pillows

Throw pillows are the easiest way to add a bohemian vibe into your room. Opt for different sizes, bold colors, and eclectic patterns to achieve that signature boho eclectic look.

In this case the little tassels on the pillows add so much character to an otherwise simple couch. This is a very affordable and quick way to add some Boho style into your lounge.

12. Designing Your Living Space with Boho Interiors

Boho interiors are not just about the items you choose but also about how you arrange them.

It's about creating a space that feels lived-in and cozy—a great place for both relaxation and social gatherings.

This Bohemian interior created a reading nook in the window, by just adding a fuzzy mat, a throw pillow and some candles!

13. Incorporating Wall Art

Wall art in a bohemian chic living room should reflect your personal style and interests.

Whether it's a large-scale painting or an entire wall of smaller pieces, let your wall art be an expression of your free-spirited style.

The great thing about wall art is that you can easily swap them out!

14. Choosing a Color Palette

Your color palette can range from earthy tones to pastel hues. The key is to select colors that make you feel good and that create a cohesive look when mixed with your boho decor.

This is one of my favourite Bohemian living rooms, I love the way it included a beautiful pop of orange amongst the gold and neutral colors. I think it works seamlessly.

15. Establishing a Focal Point

Every room needs a focal point, and in a bohemian chic living room, this could be an accent wall adorned with unique artwork or a mid-century coffee table that steals the show.

I love this sage green accent wall mixed with the rattan hall table! The large circular mirror also makes the room feel more spacious.

Warm shades like burnt orange, brown and mustard look so good together.

Look how incredible the uniquely patterned throw.

White walls can serve as a canvas for your bohemian decor. They allow the colors, patterns, and textures of your furnishings and decor to stand out, making for a chic and cohesive boho space.

Keeping your key furniture neutral and timeless is great as it not only makes the funky bohemian wall art stand out, but it gives you more flexibility. You can update your wall art easily whenever you feel like it!
