1. Vintage or unconventional furniture and decorThe bohemian spirit is defined by the off-beat and unconventional. Instead of the latest fads in interior decor, look instead to fringe styles like vintage, rustic, shabby chic, ethnic, and art nouveau. Deck your bedroom with a mixture of these styles instead of sticking to just one.2. Colors and patternsClear your mind of the tried-and-tested in interior decor. Mix and match and take risks. Bohemian-style decor is known for being a riot of color and detail. Patterns, prints and colors don't always need to match. It's rare to see a bohemian-style room that sticks to only three hues or complementary designs.3. Natural texturesThe bohemian is often someone in touch with nature. Create this effect by introducing wood, stone, ceramics, shells, feathers, ethnic beads, and other natural textures into your room.4. Plants and flowersLikewise, bring in the real thing -- plants and flowers. A few in pots or several vases around the room should complete the look.5. Drapes and rugsThe room should look plush and comfy, a hallmark of the bohemian look. Use rugs and drapes of various colors and patterns.
