Create a bright boho scheme in 5 easy steps

Always wanted to try a bright boho scheme? Find out how you can master the look in 5 simple steps

1. Start with a moodboard

A moodboard is a simple and effective way to compile your favourite colours and textures. Start out with a key print or motif, then draw inspiration from the colours to build up your look. Here, a bright pattern from Multiyork has sparked a pretty palette of pink and blue, kept soft with pared-back white flooring and simple accessories.

2. Opt for a statement print

Choosing a fun, folksy print is a handy fast-track for creating a modern boho scheme. Seating upholstered in repeat motifs or deconstructed patterns work well – bring two designs together by choosing prints in matching shades.

A couple of dainty artworks in the scheme's key colours round off this vibrant duo.

3. Keep calm with pared-back basics

Now that you've chosen your accent pieces, opt for white walls, flooring, and furniture to let the statement seating really shine, just like Debenhams (below).

4. Finish off with simple accessories

With a host of bold prints and bright colours taking centre stage, all this scheme needs is a few simple accessories and some fresh flowers. Try introducing the look into your kitchen with some cheerful crockery bearing pretty boho illustrations, such as this range from Tesco Direct (below).

5. Take it outside!

With such an array of bright colours and enchanting floral schemes, don't be afraid to implement this beautiful boho look outside, too. Simply team fresh flowers with painterly cushions and crockery for an alfresco take on the trend.
