What is the Indie Boho Style?
A relaxed design that is laid-back and welcoming with an unconventionally modern style.
The origin of the look stems from central-eastern European ancient bohemia, with the style appealing to those with a nomadic, carefree lifestyle. Don’t be fooled by its thrown together look though, the Indie Boho interior requires some careful thought.
The bohemian look celebrates diversity, bringing together broad inspirations and contemporary design elements. This is a lovely style for those who want the freedom to be expressive and bring their own personality into a minimalist concept.
Bold and carefree yet simply sophisticated, The Indie Boho proudly embraces an open and vibrant approach but with an elegant subtly that empowers a free-spirited and artistic lifestyle.
The Indie Boho interior provides a blank canvas with whites and soft hues that easily leave room to add personality. The calming colours create a pure look that is wonderfully complimented by layering textures, injecting indoor greenery and mixing and matching vibrant prints.
This eclectic interior style is loud and full of life, yet the haphazard approach creates a laid-back and welcoming space. The style really thrives when things are kept light and airy, letting the decor do the talking.
