    Liz Caan & Co.

    Wicker ottomans don’t have to purely lean coastal; they’re excellent choices for boho-style spaces, too, like this living room from Liz Caan & Co.. Stash them away under an entryway console and then pull them out when it’s time to entertain.

What are the key elements of a boho-style living room? 

Boho-style living rooms often feature white walls, light wood finishes, rattan furniture and decor, patterned textiles, global accents, and an abundance of plants. Modern boho-style interiors are often mixed with popular styles such as Scandinavian and interpreted with a neutral palette and a minimalist touch. But you can feel free to channel the more maximalist, free-spirited style of original Bohemian-style interiors that were characterized by a colorful and maximalist embrace of the eclectic and the eccentric to create layered decor that feels personal and collected over time. 

What colors should you use in a boho-style living room?

Many modern boho-style living rooms are a minimalist interpretation of the original style that feature neutral palettes and wood and woven accents, accessorized with natural greenery in the form of plants. But you can feel free to mix in warm earth tones, multi-colored, patterned textiles, or to channel the original Bohemian style of the past with bold jewel tones and an anything-goes mix of colors and patterns.
