BOHO
PAINT COLOURS

Easygoing, casual and effortlessly cool, the earthy colours of boho chic design reflect a relaxed vibe. Explore the dusty, nature-inspired tones in our boho paint colour palette, and craft your own personal take on eclectic boho style.

Inspired by an explorer’s come-what-may spirit, the boho living space is layered, textural and imbued with global accents. Boho interior design elements include handcrafted textiles, rustic wood, indoor greenery, rich colours and patterns, street-found or vintage pieces, and much more.

Our clean, contemporary bohemian styles invite you to create a distinct design for a collected, layered boho space. Use our colour palette and accent it with expressive hues, from jewel tones to saturated pastels to brights, for your own unique bohemian interior.

The Boho Style Bedroom

Floor-to-ceiling drapes. Low-to-the-ground beds and seating. Loads of natural light. Creating a casual, carefree aesthetic is central to boho decorating.

Use a mix of comforting neutrals to infuse your bedroom design with a warm, relaxing glow. Place bohemian trimmings like pottery, pampas grass and dried florals against trendy mustards, ochres and other golden yellow hues.

Sunbaked colours like Dorset Gold HC-8, seen here, Concord Ivory HC-12 and the slightly more muted Spice Gold 1040, let you enjoy bold colour saturation in an approachable way, while still synching with warm, natural boho chic textures and objects.

A Boho Exterior: Inside Out

Boho design is all about rich textures; chunky textiles like macramé, rustic woods, and lush greenery. Whites, neutrals, and greiges can provide a clean backdrop for traditional bohemian furnishings like peacock chairs, hammocks, and basket swings.

Since boho design styles often focus on bringing the outdoors in, it’s easy to reimagine this exterior style in your living room, bedroom, or den. Here, layers of white paint create a simple style with design depth in Evening White OC-81 and Atrium White OC-145. Opaline OC-33 and luminous White Dove OC-17, both from the boho palette, are also go-tos for a dimensional white look.

A Boho Living Room: Contemporary and Comfy

Asymmetrical layouts, variegated patterns and handcrafted textures are staples in boho décor. Placed in a clean, contemporary space, layers of colourful textiles deliver an unexpected twist.

Here, crisp Cloud White OC-130-painted walls create a perfect backdrop for antique rugs, outdoors-in surfaces like stone and granite, and a classic leather butterfly chair. In this bohemian living room design, door trim in Black Satin 2131-10 modernizes the look. For a softer, more rustic hue, consider Mississippi Mud 2114-20, Black Bean Soup 2130-10 and from our boho colour palette, Stone Brown 2112-30.

Tell a Story with Boho style

Boho design invites you to craft a tale of colour and curiosity.

The best boho looks artfully mix a range of décor while inspiring wonder. Here, hanging jewelry as eclectic art, a sumptuous velvet chair, and gauzy white curtains meld effortlessly, evoking a magical, romantic ambiance.

Use unexpected, bold palettes like aubergine, burgundy and brown to breathe drama into bohemian design. We love Incense Stick 2115-20, New London Burgundy HC-61, and Desert Shadows 2114-30. For a lighter, more earthy touch that’s still saturated, consider Metallic Gold 2163-40 from Colour Preview®, or a dusty pink paint colour like Venetian Portico AF-185, from the boho colour palette.
