Boho Style: The bohemian style?

The bohemian style, also called bohemian or boho style, originated in Paris in the 19th century. At that time, a group of artists and intellectuals rebelled against the otherwise strongly conventional, stiff lifestyle of the rest of the bourgeoisie. The desire for a free life, without restrictive guidelines and labels, also defines the eponymous fashion and interior design style: the Boho style. The hippie movement picked up the boho look and made it popular again. Since then, boho chic has had repeated comebacks in the 1990s and most recently in recent years, and is still a popular interior design trend at the moment.

Boho Style - The interior style of the free spirits

Unconstrained living: According to the free-spirited attitude to life, the boho style has None fixed specifications, but characteristic features that offer a rough framework. Allowed is what pleases and does not correspond to the Width. Mix of styles: for the Bohemian style, pieces of furniture do not have to match. Boho furnishings can consist of different collections and materials. Contrasts are basically welcome. Thus, for the Bohemian Chic Living styles, an ornate vintage floor lamp and an oriental rug fit together perfectly. Forms: Better as few straight lines as possible. None are strict in terms of color either. Depending on your color preference, the modern boho style can be realized with furniture and accessories in subtle Nature colors or with more gaudy color elements, for example, with ethnic prints. Also with the Boho Deco applies: Better to deviate from the standard. In principle, almost anything can be used as Deco. Even the way it is placed in the room can be unusual. Boho Deco: A painting does not have to be placed on the wall - it can simply hang from the ceiling. Wall decorations are just as much a part of the boho style. A discreet interior relies on earthy colors in beige, brown or Clear-cut White. More striking colors: a strong ocher yellow, Turquoise or Bordeaux red. They visually enhance the boho style. Tip: Do not mix more than four colors, because too many colors cause visual unrest. Old and new: Used vintage items from the flea market can be mixed with new furniture and Deco elements. Solid wooden furniture or seating elements made of woven willow branches emphasize the nature-oriented style. Since the artist movement already preferred large loft spaces as living space, the seperate pieces of furniture play a special roll. Thus, in Boho Chic Living styles, a high-quality couch does not stand inconspicuously against the wall - it becomes one of the style highlights itself and is placed in the middle of the room. Discreet or colorful: pillows with fringes, ceilings made of linen, candles and fairy lights create the cozy hippie look. Repurpose: Items can deviate from their original function and find their use elsewhere. A Metal barrel can serve wonderfully as a side table: Nothing unusual for the boho style.

Boho style doors

Open, large rooms characterize the boho style, which originated in loft spaces and is characterized by unconventional, creative furnishings. When choosing front doors, passage doors and interior doors, the door type, design and material are important to achieve the right boho look. For a perfect overall look, it is important that not only the door itself, but also the frame, door handles and fittings harmonize in style and color. This principle also applies to all windows in the room, which should support the boho style, for example with natural materials or playful designs.

Sliding doors bohemian look

Sliding doors are an ideal solution for large rooms with high ceilings, typical of the bohemian style. They allow for flexible spatial separation without compromising the open living concept and the abundance of light. Sliding doors can be made of modern glass or natural wood, whereby both materials can be harmoniously integrated into the boho style. In smaller rooms, sliding doors help to let in light and make the room appear more open and spacious. Natural boho chic with subtle colors such as white, beige and brown harmonizes perfectly with wooden sliding doors. Modern sliding glass doors, on the other hand, have a timeless look and can be made of both clear and frosted glass. Combinations of both types of glass or the addition of decorative elements on the glass door are also possible to give the room a personal touch.

Stop doors in bohemian style

The boho look can also be implemented in smaller rooms, not just in large loft apartments. The choice of the right single-action door plays a decisive role here. The boho style offers a wide range of options: from simple to playful doors with elaborate ornamental decorations on the door leaf and frame. Even rustic iron doors can be integrated into the bohemian style, as can glass or wooden doors. It is important that the door reflects the lively, artistic atmosphere of the boho style, be it through colors, patterns or materials.

Boho style Door handles

Door handles are a small but essential detail in the boho style. There is a wide range of variants, from simple black door handles with straight lines to golden, curved or elaborately decorated models. The matching of door handle and door fittings is essential, for example when choosing between round and square models. One example of an ornate door handle is the CAROLA PIATTA S model from GRIFFWERK, available in gold and black. The AVUS PIATTA S model is ideal for lovers of simpler designs. For sliding doors, handle shells such as the round PLANEO GM model or handle bars such as LUCIA GTS are ideal for emphasizing the boho style. These handles and fittings help to complete the overall look of the room in keeping with the boho style.
