It is known to many that boho design is inspired by free spirits and people who defy the norm like travellers. Emerging from early 19th century France, artists moved into the lower rent Romani communities, blending two cultures and embracing alternative ideals of beauty and style. Because of this, the boho style has evolved to be a celebration of culture, incorporating things from different parts of the world and ways of life.
This blending of cultures has resulted in us embracing patterns from countries such as Morocco and Turkey. Taking their traditional tiles they work beautifully to create beautiful boho kitchens. This Terracotta and Blue Medley mural takes the hustle and bustle of a Moroccan market and places it right in the heart of your home. Style this boho wallpaper behind the worktops in your kitchen and let the rich terracotta tones and inky blues combined with beautiful patterns create a warm and inviting kitchen space that oozes cultural style.

We know texture plays a massive part in making boho style work and layering those textures through your décor is a great way to incorporate this. Soft textured rugs, woven rattan furniture and an array of textile fabrics are all synonymous with the bohemian style. However, who’s to say that texture is only confined to the furniture and accessories you choose?
Whilst going to town with rugs and pillows is great, you can balance this out with textured walls. This could be concrete for a more industrial boho look, brick if you like character or wood for a more Scandi style vibe. This Wood Texture Natural Finish wallpaper is a great space-saving trick if your boho living room is lacking in floor space! Moving the texture to the walls creates an all-natural look that the boho style is known for.
