Mix colors and fabrics to get a warm vibe

Bohemian rooms don’t care much for ‘rules’ and ‘interior trends’. It’s all about mixing colors and fabrics that you love. Instead of buying a sofa or chair you can place a soft rug on the floor and create a sitting space with pillows and floor cushions. And if a rug on the floor isn’t enough for you, than you can also hang them on the walls (or ceilings) to make them into a tapestry.

The neutral colored bohemian room

Now if all those colors are a bit much for you, than you can also go for a more neutral colored bohemian room. Decorate your room in soft colors and natural materials. By filling the room with various textiles you still create a warm vibe.
