Adding a Bohemian Touch to Your Home - DIY Tutorials & Ideas


 
 
 
 
Adding a bohemian touch to your home doesn't have to cost you a fortune. On the contrary, you can add that inviting, free - spirited feel with several frugal and easy to do  / find projects and things. For this post I focused on the major elements that will turn your place a bohemian haven in no time.

Pillows

 
 
Pillows immediately transform the looks of your place. They add warmth and coziness to the space and create pleasant and attractive visual appearance.
 
 
 
 
You can sew some interesting ones like these two from the Sewing Rabbit. Or add trims and edgings to existing ones to freshen up their looks.
 

 
 
Use vintage linen / tea towels for a quick wrap up of old throw pillows or bolsters. Another great idea is to find vintage rugs or kilims and turn them into pillowcases.
 
 


 
 
Use these throw and bolster pillow tutorials if you want to make them from scratch.
 
 
Rugs and Kilims
 
 
 
 
Vintage and shabby kilims give a true character to your room. They do not have to match the pillows but having something in common with them will make a unified and polished composition.
 
Instead of buying them which could be pricey, you can always thrift them or make some yourself.

Old t-shirts can serve well as the rug making material.
 
 
 
Margaret worked magic by stitching two kilims together.
 
 
 
Turn a straw mat into a kilim following these instructions.
 
Coffee tables
 
 
 
 
Made out of wood slices, pallets or drift wood, coffee tables can give an original and unique touch to your bohemian home.
