Eclectic, bright and bohemian living room
I 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.

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.
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.
