Post image for How To Create A Bohemian Atmosphere In Your Home Do you ever dream of being a nomad? I think it’s something that crosses all of our minds at one point or another. Traveling from place to place with no destination in sight; living in a beat up caravan that’s covered in beautiful tapestries inside and overflowing with little trinkets you’ve collected along the way. It just seems so free.
Caravan Dreams is the name of our latest lookbook and, with its rich fabrics and eclectic mix of prints, it’ll put you in a traveling state of mind. Bohemian clothing is a given for us Free People girls, but what about bohemian home décor? I love the idea of decorating the home as if it’s a caravan; getting that on-the-road feeling right in your own home. Here are my tips on how to create a bohemian-feeling home:

1. Use lots of rich color

Ladies and gentlemen, there ain’t no such thing as a monochrome bohemian sanctuary. Bohemian décor is all about the colors of the world, so use as much as you possibly can – and focus on rich hues like deep purples and saturated golden yellows.
2. Mix it up

By this I mean everything. To really achieve that eclectic bohemian feel, mix different textures and prints along with your mix of colors. If you think it’s “too much,” that probably means you’ve gotten it just right.

Caravans are pretty small by nature, so it’s necessary to utilize every ounce of space there is – including the ceiling. You can achieve this look by hanging tapestries, jewels, pieces of fabric – anything, really!
4. Be one with nature

The bohemian lifestyle is all about spending days wandering all over Mother Earth, so it only makes sense that you’d bring some of nature’s gifts back to your abode! Fill your space with big, green plants to add the final touches to your bohemian dream home.

  1. Bohemia sounds like heaven on earth. Once you don't have much free space, the room gets more meaningful. It is filled with things, things that touch each other, that create an harmony.
