Make your Coastal Home Boho Chic

There are few things more fun, or beautiful, than a boho beach house. The boho look, with its earthy colors offset with pops of vibrant hues, lends itself perfectly to coastal homes. Creating the easy-breezy boho look isn’t as simple as it may seem. With the array of colors, textures, and shapes at your disposal, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. And while boho is all about bending the rules, the trick is to not get too carried away. There’s a fine line between eclectic and chaotic.

Different shades and patterns of green take center stage in this bedroom. Soft shades of yellow and orange complement, rather than compete.

We love how the happy blue door of this home, featured in Architectural Digest, pops against the calm, neutral kitchen. A rug in shades of pale pink adds dimension.

To successfully mix and match patterns, stick to a consistent color scheme of just two or three hues.

If you want an explosion of color, you can still throw in patterns. Just keep it to one or two so things don’t start to feel out of control.

Layer rugs of differing patterns and textures to add a Boho touch to an otherwise neutral room.
