Plants, patterned textiles, rich textures, and good vibes are all characteristics of bohemian home design and decor. And though we love everything about the style, we’re taking a break from focusing on the plants (shocking, we know!) to focus on the patterns. Specifically, mixing printed and patterned rugs, pillows, throws, tapestries, wallpapers, tiles, and more (like you see here in @carlaypage‘s home!). Keep reading for the spaces filled with so many patterns you won’t be able to count them all on one hand…and that’s a good thing.
If you’re new to mixing prints, start small with different printed accessories, like this room’s rug, throw pillows, and hanging tapestry.
A porch is the perfect place to play with a boho feel. This relaxing outdoor area has a perfect mix of similar geometric prints in a broad range of colors.
These bold, rich colors look incredible against all white walls. By keeping the decor simple, the mixed colors and patterns work well without feeling overdone.
The prints in this boho bedroom are grounded by the white comforter and sheer white curtains. Get a similar look by using prints that are all part of the same color family, like the reds and blues seen here.
This dreamy space is perfect for those who want to mix prints in a more subtle way. The colors are muted and the patterns are all visually similar.
Earthy tones look great when mixed together in one space. Note how the cowhide stool and woven basket also contribute an additional print to the decor, without feeling too overwhelming.
As usual, @fleamarketfab is serving up major design inspiration. Effortlessly mixing an orange rug with an indigo bedspread and red wall hanging is no small feat.
This bright space has more prints than we can even count, proving you can never have too much of a good thing… Right?
Love decorating with dark colors? Bohemian isn’t off limits. This black, white, cream, and metallic room proves just that.
If you’re not inspired by the use of color in this bedroom, we need to talk. We love how each hue is linked back to the multicolored tapestry hanging behind the bed.
Don’t have enough prints? Add one to the wall—in the form of a rug. (Also, design pros: Did you spot the layered rug in a similar but different pattern? We didn’t think so.) Visit Design Sponge for a tour of the full space.
This living room is the epitome of a mix of eclectic and bohemian styles. If you’re on team “less is more”, you’re probably having a panic attack. But if you love mixing patterns, prints, and colors, we bet you’re smiling ear to ear.
Prints don’t have to be confined to textiles. These hanging baskets add color and interest, too.
Though these shibori curtains take center stage, it’s hard not to miss the variety of colors, patterns, and textures scattered throughout the space.
We’ve never considered mixing tile colors and patterns to this extreme, but it creates such an inspiring vintage-inspired vibe, we’re considering sticking it in our back pocket for our next major remodel.
This living room really provides a solid lesson in mixing patterns. It’s all about choosing similar colors and effortless pairings.
This home makeover was dubbed “grown-up bohemian”, and we think it nails just that. It’s bohemian-inspired with the colors and prints, but a touch more sophisticated and minimalist than we’re used to seeing.
We’re in love with this light and bright-colored bedroom. We’re especially fans of the electric yellow and orange throws added to the foot of the bed.
If you’re confused about how this living room is getting so much natural light, it’s because it’s OUTDOORS! Let this patio be your ultimate inspiration for decorating your outdoor space this summer.
See how the two biggest pillows anchor the color scheme of the room? That’s what mixing prints is all about!
Every inch of this living room is covered in a patterned textiles—and we’re not complaining! We’re actually very, very, very impressed.
The wallpaper, throw covering the sofa, and rug each evoke a very different feeling, but they all work together to create a modern, bohemian space.
Color enthusiasts need not shy away from mixing the brightest throws and pillows. We love how the commitment in color and pattern mixing continues up the walls.
This beachy bohemian living room only mixes a handful of prints… That you can see.
Including a million patterned textiles in your room doesn’t have to make a bold statement or create distraction. This bedroom feels smooth and serene.
Who needs a sofa when you have floor cushions and a comfy rug? In a variety of colors and patterns, of course.
This gauzy, light bedroom makes use of print in a strategic way with the pops of color in the pillows and breezy drapes. If covering a room (or entire home!) in pattern scares you, take note of this textured bedding. There’s a visible pattern, but it’s all one color!
Sophisticated, black and white-based decor can still be bohemian, we promise! This living room is a prime example.
So you see how adding just two bold patterns to this otherwise neutral room transforms it to a noticeably bohemian space? That’s the power of pattern!
There are prints on every surface of this room… Impressively, including the etching on the coffee table and basket planter.
Using throws as sofa or chair covers is an easy way to incorporate patterns when you want without making a permanent commitment.
You wouldn’t think to add multiple prints in a variety of colors to a bedroom filled with wallpaper, unless you favor bohemian design. But seriously, how cute is this bedroom?
How many patterns can you find?
If you’re nervous about mixing prints, choose a throw and rug that are almost exactly the same. This way, the need for establishing a color palette on our own is eliminated.
The subtle but effective use of pattern and color really adds to this bright, white modern space.
The texture of that rug alone! The eclectic mix of pillows on the sofa makes this living room look especially comfortable and inviting.
Make use of an oddly-angled wall by hanging a tapestry on it to add more color, or in this case, visual interest.
