Eye on Interior Style: Bohemian Influences

Season after season, year after year, there are homeowners and apartment dwellers alike, who choose to decorate with fantastic Bohemian style or more sedate Bohemian influences. Those influences can come in the form of brilliant color, a lovely mix of pattern or warm eclectic furnishings.

Color and pattern often go hand in hand. Not always, but often, pattern can amp up a room’s decor. We recently shared a post about color with our Design Shuffle blog readers, so today we’re doing a follow-up highlighting some of our favorite ways to use pattern as a companion to all sorts of colorful spaces, from pale to bright, indoors and outside.

Living Room Pattern

White rooms are perhaps the easiest ones to bring alive with brilliant colorfully patterned accents. Here, blooms abound, strewn across curtain panels. sofa pillows and underfoot on a fabulous rug.

Rug Pattern

Color and pattern are delightful underfoot. We love the interaction between the rug and the colors used in the gallery wall.
