When people ask me what my favourite design style is I’m pretty much spilt down the middle between Boho-Chic and Mid-Century Modern. Sometimes they can be mixed, sometimes not so much. When it comes to outdoor spaces, my bohemian heart is strong. Maybe it’s seeing the bohemian style closer to its natural roots out in nature or just the easy, relaxing, and warm feelings that come from the lifestyle and that we associate with Summer but it just works. Depending on what style you’re wanting to create for your outdoor spaces, you may want to look at a service such as this Porch Contractor for example, or similar. You may even be able to show them some of these space ideas to highlight the kind of style you’re wishing to go for. If you’re looking to add some additional privacy and protection from bugs to your outdoor area, a sturdy outdoor roller blind system could be the ideal feature to consider installing.
I love when there’s thought and effort put into an outdoor space but I don’t think it’s a place to over-design. Many great spaces are managed with the help of The Local Tree Experts or similar professionals to maintain a tidy, minimalist design. Keeping trees in check can be a great way to keep your design looking fresh and inviting. That’s why Bohemian style is so great, it just seems so effortless but don’t be fooled – there’s a method to the effortless style. The key is to successfully mix & match colors, patterns and textures to make one eclectic but harmonious look. Here’s 10 great outdoor spaces to inspire you and some key elements to get the look below.
To get the Boho look, fill your space with lots of different Moroccan inspired colors, textures and pattern and then kick your shoes off and let your inner Bohemian out.
