Move Over, Minimalism—These Bohemian Living Rooms Are Bursting With Color

Minimalist home décor might be popular, but there are still some who refuse to trade in colors, textures, and patterns for sleek, monochrome designs. For those with a flair for the creative, unexpected, and lived-in looks, bohemian décor is the way to go. It's colorful, fresh, bursting with life, and just as interesting as it was when it first came about in early 19th-century France. Then the style was about breaking free from bourgeois expectations and finding new forms of beauty.

"I think that today, bohemian interiors are mostly defined by this creative lifestyle," says interior designer Justina Blakeney of Jungalow, who's widely known for her penchant for the bold and expressive when it comes to décor. "My own brand of bohemianism has evolved to include an abundance of plant life and at the heart of it, an expression of the creative inner life of the home's inhabitants," she explains.

If this lifestyle interests you, there are myriad ways to incorporate the bohemian look into your home. Start small with a few hanging plants and chic flea market finds or take a bolder step and commit to larger-scale rattan furniture and textile art. The best part about bohemian décor? According to Blakeney, there aren't any rules, although she still has some tips to help you sprinkle the style in your home. Take a look at these gorgeous bohemian living rooms and inspire your inner vagabond.
