The boho aesthetic is about chilled out, free spirited living, that we associate with sunny days and holidays. So, if you’re thinking about an interior design makeover that evokes summer, in any season, why not get inspired by boho decor? We love the idea of a boho bedroom, packed full of interesting textiles such as Moroccan rugs and macrame wall hangings, or a boho living room featuring vibrant colours, vintage furniture and organic fabrics.

Create a ground-level space to relax in
When the heat takes hold, it’s great to have somewhere cool to chill out. Take inspiration from many cultures around the world where sitting, reading, and socialising on the ground is the usual thing to do. Create a daybed area with cushions, throws and soft textiles, or a place to eat and drink with a low, metal table and scattered cushions or rugs to sit on.
Use natural materials
It’s not only house plants – organic earthy materials are having a resurgence too. Lime wash paint is environmentally friendly and adds depth to your walls. If you’re after furniture that provides additional texture for a casual, laid-back look – incorporate a natural stone table, rattan chairs, or a bamboo sofa in your living space.

Decorate your home with beautiful tiles
Tiles are not only practical – they’re easy to clean and they keep the house cool – but they come in a vast array of intricate patterns and styles that suit a bohemian interior. Choose embossed antique tiles; Moroccan mosaic tiles; Portuguese tiles; tiles with paisley, mandala, or floral design – the list is almost endless! You could also create a beautiful boho garden space using outdoor tiles, just add a vintage table, chairs, and decorative lighting to enjoy the area late into the evening.

Give your bathroom a boho makeover
Bathrooms and toilet rooms are good places to start with a new interior style, especially if you find decorating your home a creative challenge. Experiment with bolder colours, patterns and textures in these rooms. You could add wooden paneling, a statement freestanding bath and vintage trinkets from flea markets and secondhand shops. You could even add a cosy seating nook or armchair, adorned with cushions and a nearby mirror. Perfect for a relaxed beauty or makeup routine.
