A Bohemian Sanctuary

With all the talk of Coachella and festival attire over the past month, I have been drawn to Bohemian interiors. I love the free-spirited vibe of this style. The Boho style is a great look for a loft area, because it can really make a space feel like a sanctuary. Key elements of this style are carved woods, embroidered patterns, and rich colors. Below are some beautiful pieces that can be used to create your own Bohemian sanctuary. For bedding, I chose a textured white duvet contrasted with bright patterned pillows. The bed is to be flanked by intricate carved wood nightstands. Texture is very important to make this style successful!


Placing a bright colored rug underneath the bed will really liven the room up. This hot pink rug will bring out the colors in the pillows, but will not be overwhelming due to the muted colors of the bedding and nightstands. Hanging a funky lighting fixture, such as this rope chandelier, will add another layer of interest.


For art and decor, I stayed away from the predictable paintings/wall art and chose a wall tapestry and a unique mirror. The wall tapestry is still in style with the bold pattern, but it’s muted in white & black to allow for the other bright elements in the room to pop.

In a loft layout, there’s usually space for a small sitting area that is it’s own intimate corner. I’m absolutely obsessed with this embroidered settee! It pairs well with the carved wood coffee table, which relates back to the intricate nightstands. Using a garden stool as a side table keeps a more casual vibe. A bright color that ties into the sofa’s fabric works best.
