Daring, visual accents with metallic surfaces, flowery patterns, and retro swank designs, are all very popular today. The psyche of the populace is searching for release in the 21st century. Technology has allowed great advances, but the soul requires expression. Bohemianism is one way this expression can be released through our homes. Check-out these ideas on how to give your living room that bohemian vibe.
10 WAYS TO GIVE YOUR LIVING ROOM A BOHEMIAN VIBE
1. Water Down The Walls
Taking a bold but subtle approach by creating a water-colored accent wall will create a bohemian vibe to die for. Any color will do; however, rich watered down colors like deep purple, intense green, or lapis-lazuli blue should do the trick. Don’t water the color down too much or it will become a pastel hue, and you don’t want that.

2. Clear It Up
If you prefer a fresh, straightforward bohemian vibe, large windows that let in plenty of natural light will do the trick. Add natural light wood, plants, or bamboo, to reflect the natural light and magnify the bohemian energy in the room.

5. Take Your Seating To The Floor
Sitting on the floor on soft pillows creates a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere. Add a low coffee table to place small oddities while lounging on the floor. Emphasize the bohemian atmosphere by adding a stack of interesting reading or art work on the floor for a more strategic look. Keep in mind, sitting on the floor, even with the most comfortable pillows, is not for everyone.
