Bohemian style has been a long-standing inspiration for the arts, architecture and interior design for good reason. It allows homeowners to include all those unique, and often odd, features and items that they love so dearly. It's also colourful, visually stimulating and interesting to say the least. Surprisingly, it can also be one of the hardest looks to create or re-create because of the subtle features that need to be considered and included.
Take a look at these twelve, inspiring Bohemian living rooms to get your creative juices flowing!
Smaller home or living room? No problem! Bohemian might even be your best bet! Combine everything you love – but be careful not to over-clutter a small space. Combine different shades of wood as well as interesting accessories and furnishings for a special touch.
