How to Create a Bohemian Garden
At Eyes of India we are very proud to have a true international customer base, serving all continents, we understand that for some of our customers that it may be difficult to imagine placing some interior products, outside in the elements. However the better (and drier) spring and summer months allow you the opportunity to create a magical, bohemian space in your garden easily and quickly, which can be protected from the wind and the rain.
Bohemian Gardens are overflowing with colors, patterns and positive energy and all this can be achieved with very little effort. In using just a few products, you can create you special tranquil place, perfect for both relaxing and socialising.
Most commonly, Bohemian Garden are best created on hard standing areas such as decking and patios. Better still, when created under canopies and porches, you don’t even have to worry about the rain! There aren’t any rules however, so create something unique.
Flowers & Plants
A Bohemian Garden is only as beautiful as the plants and nature within it, so ensure that plenty of plants, trees and flowers are planted. Remember, a bohemian garden doesn’t have to be orderly so choose Flora & Flauna that you like and enjoy seeing it grow and develop.
A really nice touch involves wrapping trees in fairy lights or adorning them with lanterns, providing brilliant, romantic lighting which really created a beautiful atmosphere and chilled out vibes.
Much in the same way that we have told you to be adventurous with the contents of your garden, do not be scared in using things you have around the home to enhance your garden, remember that even the oldest items can be accessorised by bohemian products to create something beautiful.
Old tables, chairs and sofas all make fantastic additions, especially when customised with Throws, Cushions and Tapestries.
Cushions & Pillows
Perfect for patios and decking, as well as all that recycled furniture, Bohemian Pillows & Cushions are a fundamental part of any Bohemian space. As an added bonus, they are also very comfortable, helping you make the most of those balmy summer evenings with friends.
