In France, the word Bohemian, spelled Bohémien, means Gypsy.
Therefore, bohemian style decor is famous for its creativity and free-spirited style that brings together both the old and the new and an eclectic mix of beautiful colors, patterns, and prints.
Bohemian style decor is unstructured and free-flowing, which makes for a very cozy, relaxing and not to mention an interesting environment that exudes charm.

I have these stunning lights in my home and they are beyond magical!
Although boho style allows for a whole load of freedom, there are a few things you can do to give your home an instant boho touch that doesn’t involve any decorating.
I have come up with a quick list for you so you can get started with bohemian style decor right away…
Shopping for bohemian style products is not easily done on the high street. After all, Bohemian style is all about unconventionality and being unique, not something for the masses.
The BEST place to source your bohemian items is on Etsy. This is truly my favorite place to shop for gorgeous, high-quality items at cheap prices that really fit with my boho style.
With all the bohemian projects I have in mind for my home, I’ve (naturally) been looking for inspiration on Pinterest where there are so many ideas to inspire.
If you’re anything like me, then you will have spent a long time ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the many gorgeous boho-style rooms on Pinterest… am I right?
But don’t just ooh and ahh at these beautiful rooms, get them for yourself and fall in love with your own home.
If you need a little more help on getting started with a boho-chic home, I have found 3 of the most gorgeous rooms that will help give you all the inspiration you need to get bohemian style decor in your home… without redecorating!
I love everything about this bohemian style room! It’s bright and spacious and yet really cozy too.
The natural elements of the bohemian wall hangings and plants, mixed with the bright eclectic mix of colorful cushions, give this room that beautiful boho touch.
The floor cushion is a little haute bohème but looks so comfy and inviting!
This room is a boho girl heaven! With the dark, natural color scheme and the beautiful lights hanging from the ceiling, this room looks warm, cozy and oh-so-inviting… a room where any bohemian girl would love to relax!
This bohemian style room is absolutely STUNNING!
Canopies are a common feature in bohemian style rooms and the beauty of it speaks for itself.
Paired with fairy lights, the tulle canopy makes for a gorgeous magical effect that every bohemian girl will love.
You can buy tulle fabric like this one here as a cost-effective way to create a gorgeous canopy over your own bed!
I hope you’ve enjoyed these gorgeous bohemian styled rooms as much as I have and have found some boho chic inspiration for your own home too.
As you can see, bohemian home decor doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult to achieve in your own home.
