A stone accent wall defines the bar area and adds natural texture. Moroccan-inspired pendant lights hang at eye-level for a cozy, bohemian effect that visually lowers the ceiling height. Blue-and-white Spanish style tile sets the tone for the rest of the house and the cool-hued bar.
The elegant curves of cove ceilings and turret windows, along with exquisite pillars and moldings, retain the authentic Victorian sophistication of this living space, while an Art Nouveau chandelier, wingback chairs, yin yang table and assorted eclectic accessories add a more modern bohemian look. Design by Lisa Bakemis.
This traditional bedroom with bohemian touches is richly layered for a comfortable, lived-in look. The clean-lined canopy bed features a curtained headboard that gives the bed added dimension and creates a focal point for the space. Art is both hung and leaning, giving the grouping a casual feel.
At the entry to the master suite, a seating area captures the California cool, bohemian style. A caramel butterfly chair and accompanying table with gold top are lit by the sunshine from the sliding door. A mini succulent garden is done with an air of refinement and sophistication to decorate the area.
Smudgy eyeliner suggests a Bohemian chic, but a smudgy screen says “slob” (not to mention, it’s germ city). Spritz on a little AM Anti-Schmutz spray, then turn the container on its side to use the built-in microfiber cloth.
Treated and stained driftwood stands on display as a sculptural piece of art that adds an organic textural element to this coastal modern foyer. A refurbished antique bench gets a bohemian update with indigo tie dye pillows. The photo of rippled sand calls to mind again the coastal inspiration for this space.
The home's driving color scheme is mostly cool: grays, blues and teals. Pops of bright pink and a few warmer colors (burgundy, magenta) are sprinkled in to add energy and dimension. This loft sitting area is a perfect example of the design's fun, bohemian nature with imaginative layering of texture and color.
Global elements, like the Moroccan style headboard, wooden side tables and bohemian duvet cover, mix with classic elements like the antique sofa and white retro lamps, giving this bedroom an eclectic look. The dusty purple area rug plays off of interlacing patterns found interspersed around the room. A simple fireplace neutralizes the varying styles.
Do bohemian babies dream of macramé mobiles? I can’t say, but I’d like to think so. If you’re going for a casual, global vibe, a macramé mobile is a must-have. A neutral-hued variety, like this one crafted by The Forest Fern, can be kept and used in future nurseries, no matter the baby’s gender.
Silver, gold and black triangles cover the back wall like confetti for a fun, whimsical detail that makes a major statement. The bohemian textile skirt packs a seriously stylish punch on the simple white crib. A brass floor lamp with an attached glass table picks up metallic tones from the triangle accent wall to amp up the glam factor.
Steps away from the doorway to the outdoors, the lower level powder room at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase continues the look of the outside stone terrace with a Walker Zanger porcelain tile floor in a honeycomb pattern. The palette continues the look of stone, while hardware and lighting adds a luxe twist to the otherwise bohemian vibe.
This integrated stucco bench is situated on the pool terrace and faces an inviting outdoor fireplace. Strategically designed decorative pillows and cushions of varying sizes, colors and patterns create an effortless, bohemian look.
Sitting on the master bedroom terrace, this bench offers a cozy spot for the homeowners to enjoy their pool by day and an adjacent fireplace by night.
An arts and crafts-style vanity is paired with intricate mirrors and shaded sconces to create a bathroom with bohemian appeal. The tile mimics the design of a two-tone hardwood flooring inlay used elsewhere in the home. The glass shower creates a spacious look. The marble tile of the flooring continues to the walls of the shower and bathtub.
A step up in book storage, these Japanese-inspired “Tansu Stairs” were designed by Steven Ehrlich, FAIA - Ehrlich Architects and hand crafted by David Albert. They’re set in a sustainable residence just one kilometer from the Pacific Ocean, and are built to reflect the bohemian spirit of Venice, Calif. A staircase bookcase is a great space saver in a home like this one, built on a narrow lot.
Woven wall hangings are totally on-trend right now, but they can be difficult to place. Sometimes, they’re simply too small on their own, or they need an odd-sized wall. Solve this problem by hanging them on and around an accordion rack, which will help visually fill wall space. Incorporate other bohemian accessories to tie the look together.
Give your version of midcentury style a more personal look by letting your home’s geographic location influence the design. For this house in Austin, Texas, for example, designer Christen Ales, chose colors and motifs that nod to the southwestern site—and yet still have a midcentury look. “The décor mixes fun bohemian patterns and textures, like this wallpaper from Cavern Home, with modern and more traditional Mexican style furniture silhouettes for a clean, but eclectic look,” she says.
This kitchen is a combination of traditional and modern elements. The cabinetry, granite and hardware are very contemporary, but with the infusion of a custom rustic kitchen table, fabric dining chairs and cornice boards, the space becomes cozy. The cornice boards were created in an unexpected bohemian patterned fabric with orange accents to add interest and pattern to the room. The hammered metal pendants hanging at varying height are copper on the inside and produce a warm glow.
As seen on Cousins on Call, this open floor plan lower level houses a kitchen, dining area, and living room for the family. John and Anthony have taken a more modern space and have added funkier details to fit the family's eclectic style. The unique detail above the dining table adds character and bohemian charm, while the wall behind the television, with its natural wood and open shelving, gives a nod to the Asian style. Plush furniture and myriad patterns help to bring out the eclectic feeling of the design.
