This rather popular style today is unlikely to appeal to people prone to perfectionism, who want to surround themselves with perfect harmony or require a maximum of free space with a minimum of things. After all, the boho style in the interior is a jumble of all sorts of things and furniture, necessary and not very much, with a bunch of décor, handmade and all kinds of cushions plaids. It's no wonder that at the very beginning of the popularity boho was associated with hippies - in the same chaotic and anarchic way of life, without certain rules and laws.
The name "boho" comes from "bohémiens". So called the inhabitants of Bohemia, the country of the Celtic fighting in Central Europe - nomads, Gypsies, travelers. These people are not aware of generally accepted rules and laws, he himself creates them in accordance with his convictions and way of life. He is freedom-loving and proud as the wind. The style named in his honor, these features are also inherent - it is so diverse and multifaceted, not subject to any generally accepted canons of design, incredibly original and authentic.
The Bohemians did not differ sedentary life. They wandered in many countries, piling up certain rules of behavior in their culture, and in clothes and household items belonged to different nations. In their carriages one could find fine variegated silks from India, fringe and embroidery from China, an eastern horse harness, European linen clothing and Siberian furs.
A little later, Bohemia was called not only nomadic Gypsies, but also wandering artists, musicians, circus performers, even their very way of life, shrouded in continuous holiday and bright colors. Such a nickname of representatives of creative professions has survived to this day, defining their unusual, different from other people.
Interior in the style of boho can often be seen in the homes of people of art who have their own special outlook on life, in most cases quite uncommon and not subordinate to any foundations of society. Boho supporters tend to live creatively and brightly, regardless of the opinions and tastes of others. If only they were comfortable and comfortable. Turning your eyes on creative boho is worth uncommon people who are brave in making decisions and creating comfort, able to make others respect their personal opinions.
Uncomfortable and awkward will feel in such an interior, accustomed to minimalism both in objects and in the color of the room. Boho will seem to them to be satiated with objects that are too colorful and screaming, quickly tiring the eye with its rich brightness. This style and the ideal order do not accept, in which for each thing there is a clearly defined place, which is typical of pedantic and tidy people.
But boho cannot be called an untidy style, because behind all this clutter there is a special harmony and order. Therefore, paradoxically, but boho will not suit people who are sloppy in life. Their interior in this style will be more like a dump, devoid of any uniqueness.
The style will not suit people who do not like to clutter up their premises with so-called dust collectors: all sorts of sofa cushions, napkins, tablecloths, rugs, small decorative knick-knacks, carpets and fur. Because these items in boho do not happen much and the richer their assortment is, the better.
What is the boho style in the interior? Designers have identified several points with the help of which anyone can create a classic boho style in their home, you just have to have a good taste and sense of color:
# 1. Dominant preference. Being an individual style, the boho is still to some other directions. Before equipping a room, you should decide which motives you would like to give preference to: Eastern, European or modern. Selected colors of these styles or accent will connect all the filling of the room into a single whole, thereby creating a really style, and not a dump of assorted and multi-colored things.
# 2. A large number of textiles, all sorts of decor items, lamps and cute little things, placed on the open shelves.
# 3. Boho is, first of all, a celebration of life, therefore there is no place for gloomy tones and poor color content in it.
There are no special criteria and restrictions for the color solution in this style. You can choose any color, which wishes the soul and mood. No need to worry about how all sorts of shades and tones are combined.

If necessary, you can smooth out a little and “extinguish” the excessive saturation of the color palette with the help of white.
The number of pieces of furniture in the interior of a boho is determined individually. Its essential attribute is upholstered furniture - a sofa, couch, bed, armchairs. And it is not at all necessary that the sofa and armchairs make up a single set, have the same upholstery and the shape of wooden parts. An unsurpassed effect can be achieved by placing vintage armchairs with fabric upholstery next to a leather sofa, putting chairs of different colors next to a wooden table, not forgetting to have a soft pouf in the middle of the room, which is not related to any piece of furniture, but bright and incredibly comfortable.
Furniture classics in the style of boho - vintage. Old furniture, inherited from the grandmother or bought for the occasion at the flea market, will become an ideal filling for the interior. Having acquired old things, you should not hurry to radically restore them. It should only putty the most noticeable cracks and chips, slightly refresh the color. Things must be age appropriate. Suitable for boho and artificially aged interior. It is not necessary that all the furniture was vintage. One or two of the most significant items in its design are enough for the classic boho to be clearly pronounced and recognizable.
