Shop The Look: Eclectic Bohemian Living Room

Is your space in need of a refresh? With summer fast approaching it’s time to break free from dark, drab spaces and let the light in! Looking for some design inspiration? Try this color infused Eclectic living room!

Eclectic takes its name from the word “Collected.” It celebrates the collection of artifacts from global travel overtime. Nowadays we don’t have to wait until we actually travel the world to collect our relics. We simply shop online!

The inspiration for this space begins with the selection of the bold area rug. The tribal pattern in the rug represents a global influence and is a perfect background to incorporate a variety of colors while still keeping the room light and airy. We then incorporated classic Moroccan shapes to celebrate a global inspired palette, while mixing in classic folk elements and hand woven textiles.

The décor elements represent cultural elements of global travel with subtle vintage touches.  Touches of greenery, pillows, throws and an ottoman help to further layer the room to create this truly collected global palette.

Every space needs a a great foundation piece to set the stage. Here we at Dayziner we always like to start with a great area rug to get the ball rolling! We simply love this rug. The geometric patterns celebrate a global influence and the slightly weathered appearance creates a subtle vintage quality. There are so many colors to work with that blend exquisitely with our bold, color infused palette.

As we stated in our last Bohemian Inspired Shop The Look Feature, this sofa is a true chameleon! It’s bold, but also blends, which is great quality for any long term investment. The deep navy hue provides a grounding color against our other lighter toned, airy pieces. Be sure to consider long term durability when selecting furniture pieces. If your other seating offerings are lighter in color, like in our inspiration image, then give yourself a secondary seating option in a deeper hue for those potentially messy moments.

We simply adore the effortlessness of this chair. The gentle curves are comfortable and inviting. The woven fabric provides a subtle hand crafted quality. It’s the perfect chair to sit back and converse with family and friends. Style Tip: When selecting lighter toned fabrics, opt for stain resistant choices whenever possible.

Speaking of geometry, we love the geometry of the curved cutout and the traditional mandala artwork that adorns this end table. This table captures the spirit of travel and hand crafted motifs from exotic locales. The distressed metallic add to the subtle vintage quality that help make our space feel collected over time. We are kinda obsessed with it!

Taking cues from the curvature of the the end table we selected this navy glass table lamp. Pairing the lamp against the navy sofa reinforces our blue palette. However, because the lamp is glass, the bold navy is de-saturated which helps to lighten the room. We simply love the gold base of the lamp. It pairs nicely with the gold end tables, and continues to set the stage for the addition of other gold accessories.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match when crafting your space. This is especially true for eclectic spaces. Borrowing from other design styles is perfectly acceptable to create a space that feels “collected.”  Keep in mind that when placed in a different context, pieces begin to take on a whole new meaning. We love how this transitional floor lamp starts to give off some serious boho vibes when placed in bohemian inspired setting.

Trading tassels for crystals! Tassels are back and here to stay. And if you look closely, we were able to sneak a few tassels into the space, yay! For a little touch of glam trade out your hanging tassels for some hanging teardrop crystals! It’s a feminine, sophisticated touch and an unexpected twist to the space.

Consider mix and match lighting styles to truly create an eclectic space. Look for different shapes, sizes and textures that celebrate cultural finds from global travel. These pieces are great conversation starters. Sprinkle them around the room to create unique vignettes. In our case we paired this gold table lamp with our ivory armchairs. It keeps the vignette luxe and sophisticated and balances the deeper hued colorful vignette on the other side of the room.

Building layers is all about creating contrast and repetition. These pillows are the perfect representation. They combine the colors of our two selected furniture pieces, blue and ivory. Even better, the geometric pattern on the pillow mimics the pattern on the rug. Pattern repetition is a great way to reinforce your design theme. In our case, the repeated geometric pattern reinforces the global, eclectic nature of the room.

To help create our bohemian undertones, we incorporated earthy, rustic touches throughout the space. Since we have so much visual interest in the space it is key to select a few understated, refined pieces. This mirror is exactly that. It is a simple, geometric shape. Bonus, reflecting light back into the space will help the room feel more open and airy.

The addition of greenery will instantly help your space to feel more connected to nature. Don’t have a green thumb? Opt for nature inspired art work or sculptures. Incorporating nature into your art display allows you to capture the spirit of indigenous plants without being dependent on your specific climate zone.

Have a boring or outdated fireplace that needs sprucing up? Consider re-tiling the fireplace surrond in a bold, bohemian style. Just make sure that any tile you select is suitable for a high temperature application. We love these tiles from Home Depo. It is the perfect dramatic, statement pieces for our newly redesigned space.

Adding in simple rustic touches is a perfect addition for any space. We love to incorporate rustic shelving for a truly timeless feel. Natural elements pair with almost any decor. As your style changes, your shelf can remain the same. Opt for floating shelves when styling many decor elements into one room. It will provide you with a clean, minimal backdrop for you to add layers onto as you collect more decor elements overtime.

For many people, bookcases tend to be the hardest things to style. That’s why we love this faux book collection! The set of three can be mixed and matched across different shelves to create your own look. The books are already styled to be “read” as a complete visual collection. There is no worrying about the colors working together or the size of the books being too dissimilar to group. Its a huge time saver and a styling win!

A gesture for (almost) every emotion! This set of 3 hand figurines can be grouped together or placed individually throughout the room. It’s a little bit of whimsy that helps to make your space uniquely your own. Have you ever heard the saying If Walls Could Talk…? Well fortunately these walls aren’t speaking yet, but they are sending some good vibes.
