5 ways to create a Boho inspired garden

5 ways to create a Boho inspired garden

There’s no doubt that your garden is an extension of your home. So if you’re looking to encourage a relaxed, chilled out, and slightly artsy vibe for your home, you might be exploring ways you can extend this look into your garden. 

A bohemian garden conjures up ideas of a laid-back look that’s full of colour and vibrancy. And with so many of us enjoying a staycation this year, it makes sense that you want to up the comfort and fun factors. 

From lighting to cushions and outdoor garden lounge sets, we’ve gathered the best ways you can create a boho-inspired garden. It’s time to celebrate the unconventional and let a little free spirit guide the way. 

1. Think Perfectly Imperfect

The beauty of a boho garden is that you don’t need to concentrate on matching details and a perfectly laid-out design. Instead, a true bohemian space includes unusual patterns, natural materials and relaxed seating situations. Celebrate individualism by pairing rattan summer patio furniture with bold accessories and vibrant colours to add interest.

When designing a boho garden, remember more is often more – don’t be afraid to break the rules! Mix and match vintage pieces with modern patio furniture for a fresh appeal and add a splash of paint to plant pots and more. The Belgrave Teak garden lounge set will look beautiful with a smattering of hot pink and orange cushions. Pile on and play with different textiles — it’s an excellent opportunity to let your creative juices flow. 

2. Add a Parasol

To instantly add a holiday-like, laid-back appeal to your garden, you might want to pick out a parasol. Garden dining furniture with parasols always has a boho charm that you can enhance with vibrant table settings and colourful decorations. The Bali Wooden Parasol will help you make the most of your outdoor space — especially when the sun shines. The sophisticated taupe colour will complement an array of jewel tones, and the hardwood pole adds a rustic edge. The wheels mean you can move it wherever you need it to too!

A parasol is a sure-fire way to brighten up a lacklustre space. Enhance the look and up the boho vibes by pairing it with a brightly coloured outside dining table and chairs.

3. Pair Patterns with Natural Finishes

Nothing says carefree summer quite like a good pattern or two. If you like the idea of being cosy, you could partner the Ripley Chair and Ottoman with textured cushions in show-stopping prints. The Ripley is also the ideal style to soak in the sun. The natural finish offers a luxurious feel, and the chair provides a comfortable nook to cosy up in. 

You don’t need to have oodles of space to tap into the boho look and feel. Just a few key pieces will help make a difference. The true essence of boho is peace and serenity. Cultivate a special spot in your garden to relax, enjoy your free time and take in the surrounding nature. Wooden garden furniture is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a morning coffee.

4. Dine Alfresco 

Whether you opt for an 8 seater dining set with parasol or an extendable garden dining table that you can adjust to your needs, nothing says summer quite like dining outside. To make the most of your staycation, decorate your table with a beautifully arranged vase of vibrant flowers or even a potted plant that’s in full bloom. 

In a boho garden, invite in the unexpected. Tie ribbons around trees and fences and use candles in zesty hues. Then, to truly bring out the best of your space, string up some fairy lights or colourful lanterns to add to the fun ambience. 

5. Work With What You’ve Got 

If you love the idea of a boho garden. But have quite a traditional outdoor garden set, you can still enjoy an eclectic look and feel. Pile on colourful accessories and use cushions and blankets to up the comfort levels. Hanging baskets are a great way to add colour and texture to neutral space, and they’ll look gorgeous strung up from a pergola or brick wall. 

You could set up a low seating area with pouffes in bright colours for a Morrocan edge and use coloured glassware to enjoy refreshments. Being close to the earth is a beautiful way to feel grounded and will really encourage a whimsical, boho vibe. 

From colourful lighting to parasols-a-plenty, turning your traditional garden into an eclectic, boho-inspired area will quickly give your staycation a more exotic feel.
