How to Recognize Boho Patio Décor

A boho patio is typically very relaxed and decorated with neutral and warm colors. Accent colors such as burnt orange, yellow and brown are also used. The space is likely to have a geometric patterned outdoor rug, large poufs, and oversized pillows. There will also be lots of string lights, lanterns, and candles to create a cozy and intimate environment. In terms of furniture, a boho patio will have lots of wooden pieces like benches, and a hanging chair or hammock!

Fun Facts:

Bohemian design is for those who love life full of culture, and interesting items for everyone to see. Interestingly, this interior design style began in the 19th Century in Paris, France. Inspired by those who believed art and creativity were more valuable than money – also referred to as the “original Bohemians”. It was all about going against the grain and ignoring any design rules at the time.

Boho interior design is all about carefree layers of texture and pattern with colors thrown in for good measure. This design style is often thought to be eclectic due to the carefree use of color and pattern. Interiors that are Boho are considered to be extremely personal to those using the space. The same principles apply when adding decorative accessories to outdoor spaces, like the patio, too.

Style Clues

This style often includes:

  • Neutral colors: white, beige and tan
  • Mix of patterns and colors   
  • Wood finishes and heavy use of wicker or rattan
  • Lanterns and/or string lights
