Bohemian decor is about embracing all that is laidback, whimsical, and a bit eclectic. Blending bold colors, layered textures, and natural fibers and plants, well-decorated boho rooms may share a certain aesthetic, but are always completely unique in their own right.

Bohemian interior design and clothing originated in the '60s and '70s — stemming from the hippie look — but it has seriously maintained its cool factor through the present. The decor style features colorful, patterned, organic-feeling materials to make for a vibrant, artistic, relaxed, and happiness-inducing look. And with such a wide variety of options within the style, it's the perfect look to go for if you're really wanting to personalize your space. Keep it simple with neutrals and sparse furniture to master the boho minimalism look. Lean into a more DIY feel with fringed accessories, twine tassels, wooden beads, and macramé wall hangings. Or, combine subtle tones with bolder patterns for a blend of the two.

From small and special accessories to larger furniture pieces that will last a lifetime, here are 16 little nuggets of decor inspiration to help you answer the question: "How can I turn my house into the ultimate boho haven?"
