1. Plants

Let’s be real: No boho-style space would be complete without an assortment of houseplants. Whether you prefer to suspend your plants from the ceiling with woven hanging planters or simply style your windowsill with some succulents like we saw in Hilton Carter’s Baltimore home on A Cup of Jo, an eye-catching array of houseplants will instantly make your home feel more boho.

2. Sheer Window Treatments 

Nothing makes a room feel more bohemian than sheer window coverings. Employ some gauzy window treatments, like our Belgian Sheer Linen drapes, to usher in natural light and score some ethereal vibes inside your space, like we saw in Katie and Tyler Branch’s Orange County abode on My Scandinavian Home.

3. Woven Textiles

You can always count on woven textiles—fabric wall hangings, fringed throw pillows, and bamboo lights—to usher some boho energy into a room. Mix and match textiles with different textures, patterns, and color palettes to create a layered, and oh-so eclectic look in your home, just like we saw on Amber Interiors.

4. Lighting

A little ambient light goes a long way when creating a boho-inspired space at home. Employ a single string of sparkling LED lights around your headboard or dress up your entire living room ceiling with string lights, either way you’ll score some serious boho flair at home.

5. Wall Art

Never underestimate the power of interesting artwork when designing a boho-style space at home. Turn a sliver of wall space into a full-fledged boho display by installing a gallery wall in your hallway or simply hang an eye-catching painting in your living room to set a more bohemian tone for the space.

6. Good Vibes

When all else fails, you can always depend on good vibes to make your home feel distinctly boho. Whether it means showing off your book collection on floating shelves, lighting some sage-scented candles, or cleansing your home’s air with a smudge stick, creating a cool and calm atmosphere is key to forging a more boho-inspired space.
