We have a hard time saying the bohemian look is a trend. Instead, this style has become a design category all its own, and it’s the epitome of effortless and cool. The look encourages heavy use of unique textiles—be it rugs, pillows, or curtains. And there is no scarcity of color in a boho room indoor or out.

While we love seeing bohemian living and bedrooms, we go gaga when this look is used for outdoor spaces. If you are taking on your own porch or patio project, here’s all the boho inspo you need.

Forget the Monday blues! We got another #ourtruehaven feature and this time Sara's @saratoufali outdoor patio was too much for @leftandlevel and myself to ignore! The dreamy plant babies, layers of pillows, can we just say it's forever wine time here? Thank you so much for playing Sara! If you want to be featured next, follow @leftandlevel and myself @anitayokota and tag #ourtruehaven! Who knows? We might just have to crash your Haven too😉🙌🏻 • • • • • #ourtruehaven #catchinglight #uohome #ihavethisthingwithplants #jungalowstyle #houseplantclub #prickleandvine #botanicalpickmeup #budgetdecor #mydecorvibe #plantsmakepeoplehappy #mycuratedaesthetic #bohoinspo #homemagic #elledecor #ggathome #athomewithrue #abmathome #pursuepretty #plantsagram #bohostyle

Mix and Match

Nothing’s more bohemian than an eclectic mishmash of furniture, so take a note from this tiny little outdoor space and mix your favorite pieces. A bench hidden under a sheepskin throw for added texture is all the seating needed; elsewhere, a metal tray table and a low wooden stool provide ample space for all your green friends. And as any boho decorator worth their salt will tell you, cramming as much greenery as possible in any given space is a must to properly convey the chill-yet-chic aesthetic bohemian decor is known for.

Bright Space

This bright and bold escape is one where we could certainly see ourselves gathering this summer. Rich in color and exaggerated textiles, this space is truly a dream. When looking to pull off this look yourself, remember that incorporating a ton of prints is the name of the game; adding in a variety of patterned pillows will help you easily achieve this look.

Small Yet Mighty

Do you think your space is too awkward and cramped for a complete transformation? Think again! Even the narrowest of porches can test out this look, as exhibited by this gorgeous space full of color and interest. Stuff your space full of pillows and plant life, and take advantage of wall space and design upwards. Include great tapestries and art on the walls, and string up special lights to really drive the look home.

Mojave Magic

This space is giving us all sorts of desert vibes. The simple furniture really gives a greater emphasis to the bold linens, while terracotta planters and copious amounts of cacti transport you to another place entirely. After a few drinks, you could easily convince us that we weren’t dining on our friend’s back porch in the ‘burbs—but that we were somewhere much more magical.

Set the Scene

This space is really all about the special accessories. To copy the look, find yourself a worn and weathered vintage door, and hang up some twinkling string lights. While the decor here is pulled together quite nicely, we can’t help but point out that the homeowner has the most perfect backdrop: some stunning scenery.

Start With a Hammock

Resolve to make this summer the one when you finally get that amazing hammock you have been eyeing. This cream macramé option is the epitome of cool. This hammock alone provides your porch with the ultimate in boho, and lush plant life and hanging lanterns really drive this look home.

Be Unique

We are officially calling dibs on this space for the summer. These cushions, covered in vintage rugs, are unlike anything else, and these plants are hung perfectly, at varying heights. This stunning space perfectly capture the essence of what it is to be a lover of bohemian decor.

Party Ready

The furniture is what makes this space what it is—and totally unique in shape and material. This perfect porch set is complemented by the red overdyed rug and blue Shibori pillows. Pop in a couple of potted plants, and you are well on your way to a wonderful summer party setting.
