Finally, with some September sunshine we’re thinking about an end of summer make-over with a bohemian twist! With the warmer days set to start winding down this month, it’s the perfect time to infuse your home with a fresh burst of energy and colour. Boho chic, with its vibrant, eclectic aesthetic, is an excellent choice for an end-of-summer interior design makeover. This week we’re exploring how to create a Boho-style interior design that captures the essence of the season’s transition and helps you savour those last warm days before autumn arrives!
Capture the feeling of late summer by opting for a colour palette that reflects the season’s changing hues. Think about incorporating warm earthy tones like sandy beige, sun-kissed oranges, and faded yellows. These colours will evoke the feeling of late summer sunsets and beach days. Since we’re heading towards the beautiful transitional time of year, consider mixing in some early autumn elements with the summer decor or tones. Incorporate hints of deep reds, burnt oranges, and muted greens to foreshadow the upcoming autumn season while maintaining a summery vibe.
Natural textures are a big part of Boho design and can add a sense of organic beauty to a space. Consider incorporating seagrass rugs, wooden furniture, and raw materials to create a connection with nature and celebrate the outdoors before the cooler months arrive. Tropical prints, with their vibrant foliage and exotic vibes, are a great choice for an end-of-summer Boho look. Add throw pillows, curtains, or wall art featuring palm leaves, banana leaves, or tropical flowers to infuse your space with a holiday-like feel.
As the days start to get shorter, make the most of the natural light while it’s still abundant. Opt for sheer curtains or even colourful, lightweight fabrics that allow the sunlight to filter through, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. We think late summer is a wonderful time for flowers and greenery. Display fresh flowers in colourful vases and jars. Fill your space with potted plants and succulents to maintain a connection with nature!
Boho chic thrives on the juxtaposition of different styles. Mix vintage furniture and decor with modern pieces to create an eclectic and visually interesting space. For example, a vintage rattan chair paired with a sleek, contemporary coffee table can work harmoniously together, so mix ands match! As summer nights start to cool down, make your space cosy for late-night gatherings. Add soft blankets and cushions to your seating areas and consider setting up an outdoor lanterns, candles and fairy lights – (we’re assuming it’s going to be dry enough for outdoor evenings, although who knows..)
As we bid farewell to the summer months, creating a Boho-style end-of-summer interior design can help you savour the last warm breezes and sun-drenched days. Embrace the season’s colours, natural elements, and transitional essence to transform your space into a Boho haven that captures the essence of late summer’s magic.
