Eclectic, bright and bohemian living room

Boho-Chic-Living-Room-Ideal-Home-HousetohomeI found this photo of a boho chic living room on the excellent House to Home website, which is teaming with ideas and moodboards. I love that if you take away the pops of primary colours you’re left with plain white walls and beige sofas- which are usually associated with pretty boring interiors. Add some fresh flowers and family photos to the list below to achieve a delightfully relaxing and fun space.



Items ready and waiting for you to purchase from our Great British Highstreet

InteriorLooksBUY10 1 ‘Kinsey’ red cushion. £10.50 Habitat / ‘Azami’ filled cushion. £12.99 Dunelm

2 ‘Lyme’ armchair. £329 Asda

3 ‘Bourbon Vintage’ cabinet. £199 Made

4 ‘Pedro’ yellow spindle side table. £135 Habitat (exactly the same item in the photo)

5 Desk lamp in Chilli Pepper. £12 Wilkinsons

6 Handpainted metal jug. £35 Marks and Spencers

7 ‘Brelade’ footstool in lime. £245 Asda / ‘Spinwash’ bowl. £1.50 Matalan

8 Distressed cream photoframes– various sizes. From £3.99 Dunelm

9 ‘Garner’ two drawer file, £20 / ‘Dapple’ red cushion, £25. Both from Habitat

10 ‘Lyme’ large sofa. £499 Asda

11 ‘Stockholm’ flatwoven rug 170x240cm. £160 Ikea


A bit more work, but with a box of bits and tutorials a click away, you can create something by hand and at a fraction of the price of buying new


The ‘Clasique Collection’ bevelled edge frames from £4.99 and the ‘Regency’ photo frames from £1.99 at Dunelm are asking to be painted. Cheap tester pots in bright colours are great, and you can paint a dado rail around the room to match. I found the ‘Colours’ collection at B&Q perfect, especially ‘Malibu Beach’ and ‘Electric Yellow’ at £1.10 each.

Make an array of simple cushions using ‘Fast Women Lazy Stripe’ red stripe and ‘Marmalade Stripe’ in lemon from Fabricbuy. 

Also from Fabricbuy, Red petite dot fabric, teamed with Mini pom pom trim in yellow, will look awesome. Use in the same way as piping, it’s just 90p per yard from Sew Sweet. Find some excellent Youtube videos in this post.
