The eclectic, bohemian look is something that comes quite naturally to me. I’m a bit of a collector and love to bring things back to use in my home from my travels. These two traits make it easy for me to curate that bohemian style at home.
One of the key elements of this look is texture. The layering of textures creates a warm, interesting and cosy room.
You can easily add more texture and warm up a room with a rug or a runner. I love how this one, above, has really enhanced the glorious length of this hallway and points us in the direction of that gorgeous door.
The backbone of any room is the floor. If you are lucky enough to have original wooden floorboards in good condition in your abode, lucky you! You’ve got the warmth and texture built in already, giving you a head start on building a bohemian space.
These floorboards above have been sanded and treated. This is a room design by my friend Karen Knox of Making Spaces. I think this room nails the warm, textural bohemian look. The cat adds another layer of texture, of course 😉
What if you don’t have great flooring?
When Kersaint Cobb got in touch I knew I could share with you an authentic way to achieve that bohemian backbone to any space, the floor.
What I really like about their wooden flooring is the character of the wood is fully present. There are colour variances and knots, just like real floorboards. Check out their range of wood flooring here.
I wanted to share a couple of my interior blogger friends’ spaces, that illustrate the bohemian style built on to a great floor.
First up is Kimberly from Swoonworthy, I’ve featured her bedroom before, and she has since moved house. But before moving she renovated the floor. A lot of graft went into this makeover. If you wanted to get this look then the Antique Oak Duo Living XL flooring would achieve a similar style.
Here’s another example, Karen Barlow used reclaimed parquet for her incredible kitchen floor. If you want this timeless look try Kersaint Cobb Heritage Parquet. Parquet is one of my favourite floor looks, adding a depth and sense of character to any space.
Seagrass, jute, coir and sisal are some of the other types of floor coverings on offer at Kersaint Cobb. All of these are great for adding texture to your home and will bring that bohemian traveller feeling to a room as the products have been selected from all over the world.
What kind of flooring do you have at home? Do you like the bohemian look?
