What are Boho colours?

With so many options and combinations, it's easy to get lost in the world of boho! To help you narrow down your options and make selecting boho colours easier, here are some key considerations to keep in mind when structuring your boho colour palette.

Start with neutrals

The neutral shades into your design will create a calm base that can then be accentuated by bolder hues. Neutral tones like white, cream, taupe and warmer greys will give you the perfect foundation to build upon when creating boho colour schemes.

Incorporate warm earthy tones

Boho designs are all about embracing nature and the outdoors, so introducing warm earthy tones is a must! Think nude colours. These hues will add an inviting and cosy atmosphere to your boho space. When selecting shades of these colours, opt for those with subtle variations between them to achieve a more natural boho look. You can also create an ombre effect with your boho colour palette by fading from dark to light tones. This will create a beautiful boho canvas that can be further enhanced with accents of brighter or deeper shades.

Add muted brights

With boho design, you can bring in a range of muted bright colours to add pops of vibrancy and life. Choose from shades like dusty pinks and blues, mustard yellows or teal greens to create an eye-catching colour palette. These hues will help your boho space stand out without detracting from the overall natural atmosphere. Utilising different tones within each colour will also help create visual interest that won’t overwhelm the room.

Don't be afraid to mix patterns with these muted brights! Florals, geometric shapes and paisleys all work well together as long as they share some common hue - this is key for creating balance in boho decorating schemes.

It's also important to remember that boho style isn't just about the colours you choose; it also includes texture and unique patterns that bring the design together. Incorporating textured fabrics such as velvet or linen into your boho colour scheme can help to create depth and interest in the space. Floral prints in muted shades will also help bring an element of nature into your boho décor while adding warmth and character to the room.
