Light and Bright

White walls and light, sheer curtains can make it easier to decorate your living room with a bohemian flair. A warm-toned white usually works best, but bright white can create a lovely effect. The sheer curtains add to the white background, creating more space for the warm-toned rug and throw pillows. And rather than several small plants, this small living room makes excellent use of one large plant to create a similar effect.

Shelf styling can play a significant role in boho decor, and if you have a mantle, built-in shelving, or both, it can bring your living room to life. It can help to pick a color palette or theme and decorate around it.

Conversation for Two

Smaller seating areas encourage conversation and comfort, and this living area gets it right. With the chairs as the centerpieces, playing on the symmetrical architecture in the background, this colorful space captures serious boho flair. We love the patterned throw pillows and the textured end table. But the deep blue area rug and the patterned tile above the fireplace are what really pulls it all together. And if you have a decommissioned fireplace, take note of how the plants all around make great use of this space while adding boho appeal.

Global Inspiration

Modern boho decor often relies on global accents to add a whimsical appeal and make the space feel more inviting. In this living room, the eye-catching accent chair and mantle decorations set the mood. Meanwhile, the boho area rug, throw pillow arrangement, and colorful wall hanging cement the boho appeal. And don't forget the lush house plants, bringing in natural texture and color to complete the look.

Charming Chair - Boho Living Room Ideas

Charming Chair

If your living room has the square footage for a reading nook, we highly recommend adding one. A cozy boho nook is the perfect space to curl up with a cup of tea and your favorite novel, but it’s also just a great place to relax. We love the colorful area rug, with its tassels and fun shape, as well as the bright curtains and throw blanket on the accent chair. The vases of flowers complete the look with natural textures, making this little spot even more charming.

Jewel Tones

Greens and teals are two popular colors used in modern boho and eclectic boho styles. When you choose hues that lean into jewel tones, you add extra vibrancy to the room's design and also create a more elegant, rich color palette. Whether you use these colors purely on the built-ins, furniture, or simple accents, jewel tones are stunning additions to modern boho living rooms.

Layered Design

Both youthful and traditional boho styles can benefit from layered living room rugs. To follow this room's style and create a more traditional boho living room, center a smaller rug directly atop a larger one. Be sure the bottom rug extends at least one foot past each edge of the top rug to provide the proper visual balance and shine a light on both rugs.

Subtle Eclectic

While highly eclectic boho living rooms are incredibly stylish with their various textures, colors, and piecemeal designs, there are also subtle ways to add eclectic style to your living room. Consider the lighting fixtures and metallic finishes used in your living room. Blacks, golds, bronze, and other finishes can be used in your room's key accents to establish that piecemeal style without using it as the largest style element of the room.

Coastal Boho

Coastal and modern boho styles are easy to blend, since each style has a deep appreciation for natural materials. You may follow this room's example and use coastal imagery in whimsical bohemian ways, or you can do the inverse and use boho patterns in coastal color palettes. There are many ways to blend these two iconic styles, so let creativity reign as you craft your ideal aesthetic.

Wallpaper is Back in Style

More and more, wallpaper is appearing as a beautiful way to accent any room of the home. There are many boho variations of wallpaper that lean into the youthful, earthy aesthetics of the style, but you can also choose a different style wallpaper to pair with your furniture and create your ideal blending of styles.

Down to Earth

Earth tones are mainstays of boho style. While there are conventional ways to incorporate earthy elements through the room's use of plants, you can also highlight the earth-tone colors in colored sofas, boho rugs, and other prominent accents. Earthy color palettes can be presented in many different ways to be primary or secondary colors in the room depending on your personal preference, so design with your ideal color balance in mind.


Like we said before, boho style is very freeing in terms of how you can use colors, patterns, and different styles together. Even in small living rooms like this, you can use bright, daring colors to dominate the room's color scheme. Let this room serve as inspiration that your vibrant boho living room is attainable!

Elevated Boho Style

The architecture of this room naturally elevates the entire space's aesthetic with its inset ceiling, crown molding, and tall windows. The furniture and accents you choose can add to the class or stray away from it in order to create a more youthful aesthetic. In this case, the furniture feels very classic with its rounded edges, but the patterns and rug design all work towards a more casual boho style.

Structured Whimsy

Symmetry is an important tool for making your free-spirited boho living room feel more structured. Here, the seating area itself features great symmetry with the rounded sofa and two parallel chairs, but asymmetry is also utilized to bring in that whimsical style. The side tables, ottoman, and the decor on the bookshelves all fit into the room's overarching symmetry, but their designs and placement are more artistic and less formal. Details such as these can help you create a balanced boho space.


In line with the previous living room, this room also uses layering to highlight different textures and designs. Different textures make up the majority of this living room with unique wall art, tasselled pillows, a plush throw blanket, and the woven rug. Take inspiration from this chic boho living room and find fun ways to use different textures and materials in your space.

Textured Rugs

Rugs with varying pile heights naturally make a big impact since they are not the norm for most living rooms. You'll find textured rugs that use elevated yarn and weaves to define unique patterns and designs perfect for boho styles. With that, your rug can also inspire other textures and pile heights in pillows, blankets, and wall tapestries.

From the Ground Up

The rug you use in your contemporary boho living room will help define the entire room's style and color palette. With more eclectic versions of boho, you can intentionally choose wall art and other decor that are starkly different from the rug to create maximum impact. Regardless of your design philosophy, the rug you use in your room is one of the most important aspects to consider for style and comfort.

Assessing Accent Colors

Typically, accent colors are used in numerous ways and multiple areas of the room to fit into the room's overarching aesthetic. Follow this room's example by using different colors in seats, pillows, blankets, and vases throughout the entire room. By intentionally spreading out the colors and presenting them in different mediums, you'll create a masterfully designed boho living room.

A Solid Foundation

Light and airy boho living rooms like this one often use white as the primary color on the walls and ceiling. This makes the room a perfect blank canvas to add other colors, textures, and patterns to. Since white is such a versatile color, it is also used in other interior design styles. This means you can easily make a white room fit a coastal boho style, a boho farmhouse style, or a modern boho style.

We hope this collection of boho living room ideas has given you plenty of inspiration to help you decorate a room that suits your style. This fun and free-spirited look allows you to express yourself through your decor to create an inviting living room you’ll love coming home to.
