There is something downright cool and enviable about the bohemian lifestyle. Maybe it's my nomadic heritage, but most of us dream about that whimsical gypset life, traveling endlessly to far-flung places and colorful cities rich in culture and history. That's why boho homes are still on the top of our inspiration list—who doesn't have a bohemian board on Pinterest? Think unique and exotic fabrics, perfectly disheveled throws, an abundance of greenery, sentimental keepsakes, relics, knickknacks, and handmade collectibles lovingly layered to create a worldly space.
For interior designers, Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe of L.A.-based firm Nickey Kehoe, the bohemian interior style is inviting, collected, and worldly. "Nothing usually feels like it was designed for the space, but rather found or chosen because of a meaning or story," said Nickey. Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors, who has perfected this boho-chic style, agrees. "I think the best way to describe the boho interior look is simply a laid-back, casual, and collected feeling of a room pulled together mixing pieces that are eclectic and a little worldly."
