What exactly is Boho Style and where does it come from?
The boho style or boho chic has been back in trend for years. It is experiencing a real revival, especially in fashion and interior design, and has therefore become an indispensable part of our everyday lives. The origins of the boho style go back to the 60s and 70s of the last century, when society experienced a change and the hippie movement formed.
The unconventional artistic milieu, especially philosophers, poets and painters, in short the so-called Bohème, organized intellectual discussions and rebelled against the stiff bourgeoisie. Their unconventional thinking, free spirit and affirmation of life were the focus of this new movement. They originally sought their inspiration from the gypsies from Bohemia, who are known for their joie de vivre and freedom. That is why the term Boho Style comes from “Bohemian”. The word definitely stands for “unconventional”, which means “bohemian”. This is an expression of the inner urge for more freedom and joie de vivre in everyday life.

What does the boho style mean in interior design?
What began in the 1970s as a liberation from the constraints of the bourgeoisie has established itself in interior design as a new form of living. A colorful mix of furniture, fabrics and patterns characterizes the boho style in the interior. Everything is allowed here that creates a cozy, inviting and colorful atmosphere. You don’t even get deterred by a mix of styles, even if furniture and accessories don’t go well together. This means that contradictions are allowed in the Boho Style interior. You can put an old table next to a modern sofa or make colorful home accessories yourself. For example, DIY decorative pieces in boho style are particularly popular. This allows you to express your individuality and creative thinking and create a really unique atmosphere in the room, where you like to linger and which you don’t want to leave at all!

How to design a boho style porch?
A boho style veranda can be your favorite place in the open air, where you can withdraw and enjoy full relaxation. For this you need a skilful mix of old and new furniture, especially made of wood and rattan, plus colorful textiles and lots of deco in ethnic style. To achieve a “bohemian-like” look, you still need a pinch of individuality and unconventional thinking!
Old furniture made of wood and rattan as well as colorful textiles with ethnic patterns are the absolute must-haves on the veranda in Boho style.
Furniture for the porch in boho style:
Old pieces of furniture made of wood and rattan are now in demand for the porch in boho style. First take a look around your home and take a look at the old pieces of furniture that have been unused in the basement or on the roof for years. Perhaps you will discover an old wicker sofa from grandma’s times, which deserves a new chance. A wicker armchair would also decorate the porch in Boho style and make a small contribution to the cozy atmosphere outdoors. A hammock or swing and small accessories in a braided pattern also cut a fine figure there. Here we mean interesting table lamps and side tables that score with their unique design. If you even have a Moroccan-style lantern or two, now is the time to put them on display.
Beautiful, soft carpets, self-crocheted sofa covers and a Moroccan-style screen fit perfectly into this boho atmosphere.
