Sweep harsh lines aside, forget formality and embrace the relaxed boho living room aesthetic. Boho interiors create a cosy and naturalistic backdrop in which to set aside the mounting worries of the fast-paced world. A tranquil place where we can unwind with family, unplug, and become immersed in pastimes we love. Indoor plants pull in a touch of Mother Nature’s revitalising green palette, adding delicate decor texture with air purifying benefits. Rattan baskets and wicker living room pendant lights warmly accessorise the look along with options for jute or tribal area rugs that lay down tactile interludes and interesting patterns. Check out our collection of boho living rooms below for tips and accessories to help you design yours.

Minimal boho living room. Although the boho interiors trend is synonymous with layering and earthy accessorisation, you don’t have to create copious amounts of visual clutter to achieve the look. Applying just a few key pieces of wall decor to your living room along with a complementary coffee table at the centre is enough to complete the theme.

You can also use a collection of smaller wicker pendants to form a larger light feature. Simply group multiple light fittings of different sizes into one condensed area and adjust the electrical cords to various lengths. This light installation is made even more eye-catching by an area of exposed wooden ceiling beams.

Create different areas of boho magic. In this red boho living room, a cane and rattan room divider splits a large space into two cosier lounge areas. Muted red wall paint depicts archways that complement the design of the bifold screen.
Boho reflections. In small spaces, the layering of boho accessories can become overwhelming. Instead, apply just a couple of adornments and include a full-length mirror to amplify the effect and the natural light.
