If you're in the process of updating your living space, why not turn to boho style for some inspiration? Boho living rooms are warm, colorful, and casual—a winning mix all around. As you'll notice, common features in such spaces include rattan and wicker furniture, plants galore, and woven rugs. Some boho rooms lean neutral, while others don't shy away from color. So whether you naturally gravitate toward black and white or prefer to style your home with warmer desert tones, the choice is yours.
We've rounded up 22 of our favorite spaces that are all incredibly welcoming and full of life, proving that the boho aesthetic is here to stay.
