Bohemian interior design with japandi style decor - Anthology Creatives

Bohemian interior design has a free-spirited aesthetic. Defined by its flowing layers, it’s easily fused with other designs, like Japandi. When combined, these styles bring tranquility and comfort. One particular client was looking to start afresh and turned to Decorilla for help in creating just this type of harmonious blend. Read on to see the striking result!

The Challenge: Bohemian Interior with a Japandi Style 

With this client set on a combination of a modern yet relaxed style, the designer could push the boundaries. Fortunately, the bohemian interior style lends itself to Japandi accents, and the two together make for a cozy space to call home. 

That’s not to say the project did not have challenges to overcome. More specifically, the designer needed to:

  • Incorporate the client’s earthy color scheme
  • Ensure black and white accents on mixtures of wood
  • Add pops of greenery where necessary
  • Layer accessories to create cohesion and flow between the separate spaces
  • Opt for rich textures and ensure contrast 
  • Have an overall bohemian style with Japandi interior design accents

Charming and trendy – the living area ticks all the boxes. It’s as versatile as it is comfortable. Plus, it is aesthetically pleasing too! The living room has a beautiful sectional couch anchoring the lounge. Besides being easy to clean, it warms the room with its leather tone. The area is grounded by a modern boho rug, with a wooden coffee table in the center.

Moreover, the color palette of black, white, tan, and green coordinate perfectly with the kitchen cabinets.

A neutral color palette and décor that speaks to Japandi design set the tone for the master bedroom. It is tasteful, tranquil, and well-designed. The bed has rich organic colors and textures, with throws, pillows, and linen. Furthermore, it is balanced by a black bench on one side, and bohemian-style decor on the feature wall above the other.

A fan sits in the center of an intricate ceiling design. In addition, a large rug and abstract art mimic this design on both the floor and the wall. A cozy accent chair in the corner creates aesthetic interest as well as brings a practical element to the room. Lastly, further contrast is present through the windows. Their frames are in an oatmeal shade, paired with crisp white curtain panels and matte black rails.

The guest bedroom has a sense of serenity about it. Colored in a gray-and-white color scheme, intrigue forms through the use of dotted wallpaper. On one wall sits two drawn artworks, while on the other, a round mirror bounces more light into the room.

Boho decor also lines the walls to add interest and height. In addition, a dresser visually lengthens the feature wall. This results in the room feeling roomier.
