When it comes to constructing their homes, struggling artists, poets, and musicians tap the inspiration. As a result of these efforts, bohemian design has earned a name for itself in terms of effortless flair, affordability, and comfort. Boho rugs, furniture, and artwork easily invite themselves into your design and make themselves at home.
Boho style isn't just one pattern or design; it's a way of life packed with creative emotions. It depends on eye-catching colors, concepts, and moods to transport the viewer into a picture or a short story. People like Jack Kerouac and Oscar Wilde found inspiration in these rooms. You can use trade tools, like Moroccan boho rugs, to tell your own tale in your home.
Boho rugs captivate the eye with their bright designs and charming shapes. Warm hues, reminiscent of a Picasso painting, combine with bold lines and abstract ideas to serve as a highlight in a space full of them. Boho rugs add a comfortable drama to any decor by incorporating cultural designs and gentle textures to direct your thoughts into manifestations of uniqueness and freedom.
The Origins of Bohemian Style
Boho rugs have a long history. Cities such as Paris, London, and New York became havens for young artists and writers seeking to break free from the old ways of life on farms and in family businesses in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. They chose to live for art rather than profit or comfort. While they could only afford to live in poorer locations, sometimes in old buildings that had seen better days, they did not let their surroundings or money prevent them from bringing elegance into their apartments and studios.
The term "bohemian" derives from a misunderstanding of the Romani people. The French and English thought these people were from Bohemia, which is today known as the Czech Republic. Surrounded by individuals from various cultures, many of whom resided in the city's poorest areas, painters borrowed some of their patterns and designs, borrowing from Romani, eastern European families, and Middle Eastern families.
These residents also created their own pieces. They would handcraft furniture, paintings, sculptures, and other furnishings for their fellow creatives who lived nearby, frequently in return for commodities or services. Any other type of luxury would frequently be an inherited or faulty piece (think overdyed rugs or plates with the wrong designs).
A fresh kind of bohemian style emerged on the scene in the 1920s. Abstract patterns became popular among artists and painters. This age gave birth to jazz and freeform poetry. While author Malcolm Crowley said that "Bohemia is always yesterday," some bohemian artists and musicians desired to break free from the past and marry the old with the new. Modern, abstract patterns and shapes infiltrated boho interior design.
This style of design eventually evolved into what became known as hippie culture in the 1960s and 1970s. Greenery, flora, and natural designs have evolved into the concept of bohemian culture.
This dependence on art, emotion, and many cultures and ideas shapes what we now call boho style. Boho rugs, such as this Gray Mottled Abstract Area Rug, combine drama, velvety comfort, and affordability into one piece, making any place stand out while being useful.
A Rainbow of Bohemian Options: Using Boho Rugs in Your Home
Where should a bohemian rug be placed? Of course, in your own home! Boho rugs find the best ways to integrate into your environment, whether you want to spice things up with a classic rug surrounded by mid-century modern furniture or incorporate natural fiber into your contemporary space.
Thinking beyond the box when it comes to decorating is a trademark of the bohemian style. Rugs can be placed on the floor, but they can also be presented in a variety of different ways, such as hanging on the wall as a work of art or draped across an end table to create a one-of-a-kind aesthetic. The soft texture, oriental pattern, or vivid hues on your home stage demand their own frame or spotlight.
When decorating in a Bohemian style, overdyed Moroccan rugs, fading fringe, and thick, hefty tassels all belong in the same room. Consider surrounding your furniture with real or imitation plants to create an overgrown, jungle look that combines natural and man-made beauty in the same place.
Boho's varied pattern and color tastes make it ideal for other spaces, not simply bohemian-themed ones. Moroccan boho rugs' patterns can also be used to spice up a mid-century modern interior. Abstract patterns and color splashes featured on some boho rugs complement a contemporary, minimalist style. Meanwhile, retro boho styles can be seen in both conventional and classical settings. Good taste may be found anywhere.
Boho Rugs (and Style) Are Budget-Friendly
A boho room isn't just bought or designed; it's the result of years of collecting pieces and figuring out the best arrangements for a functional space. The style is tailored to your preferences. Do you frequently sit near the window to catch the last rays of sunlight? Make your daily ritual more comfortable by adding a boho rug and an antique rocking chair you found at a garage sale. Do you frequently eat breakfast in front of the television in your living room? Grab a small end table and a small rug to dress up your dining area. Is your grandmother getting rid of any old furniture? Take that old hutch that no one wants and place this Multi Modern Moroccan Shag Tassel Area Rug in front of it to serve meals in the dining room.
