A Bohemian living room is cozy and welcoming. Do you miss the artsy feel of the summer festivals? Then explore the collection depicting 15 hippie salons below and you will immediately fall in love with them! From vibrant colours and statement artistic objects to original decorations and cozy textiles, there are plenty of setups to test. One of the most important ingredients of a Bohemian living room is the easygoing feel. This is, I would say, its trademark. Both furnishings and accessories contribute to the calm, breezy ambiance of these relaxation rooms which are invaded by joie de vivre!
Vibrating Colours and Hot Contrasts
There is nothing like a good stain of colour. The hues influence our mood and have the power to improve our daily emotions. Try a rich Oriental carpet in your living room and you will enjoy a flooring abounding in colour. In addition, enhance the surrounding with tonic hues so that the resulting contrast animates the visitors. The generous corner sofa (L-shaped) above is absolutely marvellous. Featuring a rich green velvet cover, it dominates the room, while also functioning as a focal point. A collection of pillows printed in ‘sweet’ colours enliven the space. The coffee table is catchy, natural and very functional.
Airy Reading Corner With A View
What about a comfy reading corner? I adore the areas where you can relax, meditate, admire the garden through a diaphanous curtain or simply enjoy some moments of solitude by yourself. The reading corner above features two original armchairs made of wood and a lovely sofa. They do not seem very comfortable, but they are. The large rest supports your back strongly, while the bottom offers a comfy seat. I believe the white leafy plant in the corner is the most attractive element in this room. Be it natural or artificial, its bizarre look completes the Bohemian style.
Hippie setups also feature a bit of improvisation. Things are not extremely finished or cleaned, nor are they obsessively arranged or harmonised with the surrounding landscape. In fact, a poem is under ‘construction’ in front of your eyes. Invite your guests to explore the living room. If you want to create this playful composition at home, look for attractive hanging decorations or pendants. You can also fix a beam/ a timber from the ceiling and use it as a holder for the installation. Branches, dried flowers, leaves or candles are amongst our suggestions. They will impose a dreamy look to your welcoming salon.
Musical Instruments Perform Hippie
We have to admit that musicians’ houses are absolutely adorable! Relying on artistic movements, they integrate aesthetics and functionality with creativity. The resulting places are welcoming, colourful and inspiring. The living room above mixes contemporary pieces with rural influences in a fresh attractive way. The guitar in the corner brings energy, power and strength in the room. Try original mixes: fluffy fur, glitter, shinning bulbs and metallic leather.
Natural Light Show
Indeed, nothing compares to natural light. If you are the lucky owner of a generous house/ apartment, opt for large windows and make use of natural light as much as possible. The living room above features 2 clearly defined layers. One represented by the solid surface (flooring, furnishings) and one delineate by the empty white walls. They are distinctive, but they complement each other with grace. The osmosis is so smooth due to a wealthy quantity of natural light.
Lush Plants Energise Your Room
The free spirit style features wilderness too. Do not worry! It is not so difficult to re-produce this at home. Pots with flowers and succulents integrate easily in contemporary interiors. Plus: introduce a large wooden coffee table in the middle so that the interior feels natural. I always loved the homes with rustic essences. They stimulate you to go back tot he roots and create a comfortable ambiance. Enjoy a soft seating in a rattan armchair. Enhance the charm of a room with statement pieces. For example, an authentic Emmanuelle rattan armchair that brings a touch of glamour. An icon of 1970s style, the large living room armchair still exerts its timeless charm.
Colourful Carpets, Bursts of Energy
This urban interior features a comfy seating set (two armchairs and a sofa) on a hot turquoise carpet. Enriched with traditional and geometric motifs, the carpet represents and ideal match for this living room. If you want to enjoy a clean, relaxed atmosphere, opt for neutral furnishings and decorations (beige, brown, nude). I would also add my personal touch with crystal candle holders or bronze sculptures.
A homey corner for cuddling up with family and friends
I am a big fan of patchworks. You explore your creativity mixing colours, styles and materials, while also exceeding your boundaries. Although it seems strange, a patchwork of carpets looks really cool. Combine old with new – traditional carpets made of cotton or linen – with contemporary models. The setup above does not follow any rule. Geometries, flowers, strings together with tiny models animate the room. The result is an incredible lively flooring that can also be very versatile. Opt for monochromatic furniture and ‘invisible’ decoration.
Bohemian living room with mirrors, drawings & more
We know that photographies and drawings are at home in a Bohemian living room. If you want something more, try vintage precious models. They are rare and make your home feel unique. What about the frame? Rattan, wood, glass or steel are on the list. Arrange a large mirror above the sofa and ornate the surroundings with drawings, paintings or photos. Are you a fan of symmetries? Why not?! They bring stability and equilibrium.
Who wouldn’t enjoy a cozy evening by the fireplace during hard times? This living room has them all! Some comfy generous armchairs I would immediately dive in, a fabulous king size painting that supervises with grace and a collection of genuine objects. A Bohemian living room imposes elegance, but also invites you to escape the common grounds. That is why art will always be a friend of the hippie contemporary cribs.
