How To Nail Boho Chic Interior Design

‘I’m a girl from a good family who was very well brought up. One day I turned my back on it all and became a bohemian,’ Brigitte Bardot.

Evolving after the French Revolution in the early eighteen hundreds, the Bohemian lifestyle and counter culture has generously inspired one of the world’s most beloved home decor and fashion trends of the twenty first century: Boho chic.

The Bohemians comprised of artistic and intellectual individuals that took to living an unconvential and adventurous life. And these traits play out heavily in the Boho chic decor that we still see today.

Modern day Bohemians love expressing their individuality through art, music and travel. But you don’t have to be a creative adventurer to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of Boho interior design.

To start channelling your inner Boho diva, take a look at what style, colour, mood and place means to modish hippie goddesses in the world of interior design and how you can encapsulate the free spirit into your Boho room decor.


Boho style is less about convention and more about accepting that absolutely anything goes. However, one thing is consistent: there is a rich sense of femininity that pervades all Boho chic decor.

Boho chic is almost like the Geisha (a person of art) for the western world: soft, tender, spirited yet cheeky, fun and lively.
