The boho design style is forever the free-spirited, bright faction of the interior design world. Colors, patterns, and textures are usually mixed and matched to create brilliant and bold rooms. Ethnic patterns, velvets and silks, reds, greens, and blues, as well as cultural elements from around the world and old-world vintage styles, are all elements 0f classic boho style.
You can create a perfect boho room without the wonderfully eye-catching colors that typically are featured, however. White is as much as part of the style as any other color. White woven wall hangings come to mind, as well as breezy and lightweight bed hangings.
