Characterised by a free-spirited vibe, mix of colors and patterns and a focus on natural materials, boho is livable, luxurious and definitely here to stay.  And it also works perfectly for our Dubai lifestyle and climate. We spoke to our friends at Home and Soul for their top tips on which pieces to add when creating a boho haven in your home.

Add a hint of macramé magic

Macramé is a textile-making technique using knots to create decorative patterns. And it’s a key part of the bohemian aesthetic, adding a touch of texture and artisan flair. You can incorporate macramé into your home in a variety of ways, such as wall hangings, lighting, or even hammocks. When styling macramé, consider the overall look you want to achieve. If you’re going for a
more traditional boho look, then natural tones like cream or beige are a safe bet. If you want to add a pop of colour, then mustard yellow, burnt orange or forest green can also look great.

Choose luxurious lighting

The right lighting sets the mood in any room. When it comes to boho style, there are three main looks you can go for: botanical, beachy, or minimalist. Botanical lighting incorporates natural materials like rattan and bamboo. Think pendant lights with woven shades that resemble flowers, intracity handwoven with sustainable rattan. Beachy lighting is all about bringing a relaxed coastal feel to your home. Look for fixtures in natural materials like seagrass or Capiz shells. Minimalist lighting can work well in a boho space, as long as it has some interesting details. Look for fixtures with clean lines and geometric shapes with the added natural feature of rattan, bamboo, or jute.

Remember rugs

Tie everything together with a gorgeous rug – either choosing one that incorporates some of the colors of pieces you’ve chosen or opting for jute or hemp.  Jute is a natural fiber that adds texture and warmth to a space while being durable and easy to care for, making it a great choice for high-traffic areas. When choosing a jute rug, consider the size and shape of the room. You want the rug to be large enough to define the space, but not so large that it overwhelms the room.

Pop some colour with cushions and throws

Cushions and throws are a great way to not only add comfort and coziness to your home but to add a splash of colour, create different pattern aesthetics, and texture to your space. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different patterns and colours – it will only add to the eclectic charm of boho vibes.

Accessorize with candle holders

Candle holders are a great way to add ambience to a boho home. Glass candle holders, particularly from the Aura collection we have at Home and Soul, can add a whimsical touch and create an ethereal look, especially if you choose clear, violet, or
pink colours. Ceramic candle holders, on the other hand, can be more substantial and eye-catching, especially those from our Moroccan collection. These holders show off their bohemian vibe through their colour and sturdy design, making them a stand-out feature in your home décor.

Bring the outside in with plants

Plants are essential for any boho home. Not only do they represent your love for sustainability and nature but the also add life, colour, and texture to a space while also helping to purify the air. When choosing plants for your home, opt for a
variety of shapes, sizes, and colours. Trailing plants look great hanging from macramé planters, while larger plants can add a touch of drama to a corner of the room – especially when placed in sturdy baskets that add to the boho vibe.
