Creating Boho Vibes: Bohemian Decor and Interior Design Accents

Saffron Marigold - Updated: March 13, 2019

In an era where, for many, travel and experiences trump big homes and physical belongings, and handmade products with a story behind them are more appealing than mass-produced pieces lacking individuality, boho home décor fits right in.

Laidback, yet distinctive in its appearance, boho décor is eclectic, heavily reliant on patterns and textures, and makes full use of accessories. It encourages combining cultural elements with pieces that show your personality to create a space that is comfortable and totally ‘you.’

Boho décor creates the perfect coziness and homey environment for quality relaxation and spending fun moments with loved ones. Achieving a boho interior is all about discovering authentic and charming pieces that will bring the idea to reality. At Saffron Marigold, bohemian style is in our DNA, and we offer tons of products to help you create your perfect boho style.

Boho 101: What Is Bohemian Decor?

Boho rooms are heavily eclectic, layered, casual and colorful. Odd objects and works of art are focal points, natural materials with tons of texture are found throughout, and vintage elements weave amongst newly acquired pieces. Furniture made of materials like wood, rattan and leather reign supreme, and colors and patterns abound. The rule in a boho interior is more is more — it’s this mixing of patterns and natural textures that helps create boho’s warmth and visual appeal. Boho is maximalism’s step sister, with boho interiors relying more on vintage items and natural materials than maximalist interiors, which tend to be more refined in appearance.

So what’s the recipe for a delicious bohemian room? Start with a neutral base of thrifted or vintage wooden casegoods and casual, comfortable upholstery. Add accent furniture made of rattan or iron. Add texture, color and pattern with shag rugs, luxurious throws, printed pillows and curtains that bring a cultural flair. Display objects from your travels and handmade pieces that are close to your heart. And don’t forget the botanicals, a boho signature.

Choosing the Right Boho Bedding

We have a stunning selection of bedspreads and duvet covers to create your boho bedroom oasis — ethnic, oriental, floral, and geometric patterns are just some of the options.

Incorporating Boho Curtains and Boho Pillows

Curtains are another easy way to add bohemian flair to a room. Install a set with a bold color or bright pattern to elevate your boho story.

Our favorite boho curtain options are the French-inspired Versailles Curtain, the boldly patterned Le Chateau Tile Curtain, and the deep and striking Casablanca Blues Curtain

Pillows, too, are a simple solution to add boho vibe to your space, whether it be in a living room, bedroom or lounge space.

Mix and match our favorite boho pillows for a complementary yet adventurous look. We like Mosaique Bleue, Victorian Lilac and Morning Dew.

Botanicals in Boho Room Décor

Another hallmark of bohemian decor is greenery and plant life. While these living, breathing additions are important to incorporate in your boho space, taking inspiration from them with floral patterns will also make the room feel more vivid and alive.

The Tropical Garden can create continuity from a living room floral design to the bedroom. Brighten things up in the living room with the Tropical throw cushion covers and curtains and continue into the bedroom with the duvet cover.

At Saffron Marigold, we have a vast array of beautiful florals that can help you carry out this  concept. Most of our collections are carried across different sets of products, making it easier for you to maintain the visual integrity of the boho décor throughout the home if desired.

Bohemian Décor Ideas: Artisanal Inspiration

Because boho décor relies heavily on vintage items and natural elements, embracing the artisanal movement is a sure-fire way to create a boho oasis.

At Saffron Marigold, we find inspiration in traditional textures, patterns and techniques, and all of our products are block printed textiles are handmade in our studio in the desert state of Rajasthan, India. Generations of skill, culture and tradition pour into our textiles, which showcase handcraft at its finest — in an era of mechanization and computerization, that is sacred.

When it comes to furniture, accessories or rugs, keep this same principle in mind— search for custom-made items, scour flea markets or second-hand shops, or even DIY items to add your own originality.
