Beautifully draped throws, vibrant and colourful pillows with elaborate embroidery, floor cushions and more can make even the most modern space suddenly feel like a gypsy den! Don't worry about matching things, in fact you will create more interest in a boho room by having more contrast.

 Wall weavings, dream catchers and hanging planters will make those plain walls talk, which is especially good if you're a renter. Splash a bit of colour about with embroidered chaklas as wall art and hang a toran above the window or doorways to make every day feel like a celebration.

In the day, the more natural light you can bring into the space, the better. In the night though, it's all about moody diffused lighting. When in doubt, add a salt lamp! These are great for absorbing excess moisture in a room too.
