How to Create a Bohemian Bedroom in 6 Easy Steps
The word Bohemian has long since been used to describe those who lived a non traditional lifestyle, those who challenged the norm and weren't afraid to express themselves. One of the most Bohemian times in history was the 1960's, with its hippy movement. The chilled out, relaxed and colorful themes of Bohemian interiors that flourished in this period haven't left us since.
One of the biggest draws of Bohemian interiors for our customers all over the world is the noticeable lack of design guidelines, every expression and personality can be represented in the fusion of colors and materials available in thousands of different ways. Whilst this personal expressionism is one of the biggest draws of a Bohemian interior, for many, it can be difficult to envisage a bohemian interior and how it can work in your home.
To help you achieve the perfect Bohemian Interiors, we have started a series of blogs which focus on each room in the home. Instead of instructing you exactly how to style a room – we simply highlight the ranges and collection of products which our customers love, and which you can use.
Tapestries & Wall Hangings
Creating the perfect centerpiece in any Bohemian Bedroom, large Bohemian Tapestries & Wall Hangings are available in a huge range of styles and colors. Naturally, their use isn't just confined to decorating your wall either. Bohemian Tapestries lend themselves perfectly as sofa throws, bed spreads and large beach blankets. One of our most popular Tapestries is the Mandala style tapestries, all of which area created by Indian Artisans.
Pillows, lot of pillows
Whilst we did mentioned no rules, in our opinion - no Bohemian Bedroom is properly dressed without at least seven pillows on the bed. Adding both texture, comfort and colour into a bedroom, all of our Bohemian Cushions are made by Indian Artisans and as such are truly unique. All of these pillows are made in limited numbers which contain both new and recycled fabrics. Browse the full range here, and remember that ‘the more the merrier’
