How to Design a Boho-Chic Home Office

Whether you're looking to create a space specifically for work or just want to add some personality to your home office, these tips will help you achieve a boho-chic aesthetic that inspires both productivity and creativity.


Have you ever worked in an office that was so well-designed and stylish, it instantly attracted you to the space with its energy?

Whether you're looking to create a space specifically for work or just want to add some personality to your home office, these tips will help you achieve a boho-chic aesthetic that inspires both productivity and creativity.


What does Bohemian design entail?


Bohemian design is a style of interior decorating that plays with vibrant and carefree colors, textures, and patterns. A boho-chic style refers to a modern way of designing in the bohemian tradition, marrying earthy tones and textures with quirky, yet natural accents. What makes this style unique is the artistic creativity that comes from mixing and layering such elements that are integrated into the workspace.

Here are some tips to transform the interior design of your home office:


Get a Statement Chair


There are a lot of things that can make your home office comfortable, but one of the most important is a good chair. You want to find something that's ergonomic, stylish, and affordable. Also consider looking for available chair options in colors such as neutral tones that match the boho-chic style:

  • Our Verve Chair in Coral, a playful yet gorgeous color that can complement any environment.
  • Our Daily Chair in Sky Blue and Linden Green, which is perfect for integrating a natural pop of color into a neutral, monotonal landscape.
  • Our Ergonomic Chair in Sky Blue and Gray, which can subtly highlight some color in your workspace.


Add Some Greenery


Incorporating nature is a hallmark of the bohemian decor style, so feel free to add greenery such as plants to your workstation to invite warmth and liveliness. The addition of room plants can help with stress relief and therapeutic properties.

They can also significantly improve the quality of the air in your home office, creating a feel-good environment that will allow you to relax and be productive.


Use Layered Lighting


Bohemian design is all about layering, and this can be reflected in the lighting setup of your home office. For example, you can position two lamps on opposite sides of the room, integrating two different styles for some interesting contrast.

Ambient lighting is also an important component of the bohemian style family. This usually means a softer, warmer temperature of light that can be elevated with classic bohemian elements such as light-toned woods and rattan. For example, woven fabrics and fringe materials are strongly-aligned features of bohemian light fixtures.  


Add Accents


Once you’ve got the basics of Bohemian style down, it's time to add some extra flair. A patterned lampshade can add a fun touch of color and a pop of style near your desk, while a colorful rug can create texture underfoot and helps anchor the space. If you're feeling more unconventional (which this style invites!), you can try incorporating vintage handmade items into the space as a point of attraction.

Wallpaper or tapestries are also a great way to add color, pattern and texture to your home office. If you want this decor piece to blend more naturally, consider picking out an elaborate patterned paper that adds visual interest without being too overwhelming in one area of the room. If you want to be bold and quirky, look for unique tapestries and rugs that could complement the other visual decorations in your home office.


Explore Mix and Match


Lastly, you can amplify the bohemian chic style by mixing and matching the staple furniture pieces of your home office. When you have a light wood grain table like our Standing Desk, you can mix it with a brighter colored chair like our Verve (in coral) to develop a well-grounded accent.

The key is to find pieces that fit well together in terms of size and shape. In most cases, eclectic décor works much better when the objects are similar in style rather than vastly different from one another so make sure that these pieces complement each other well before making any big purchases.


Create your Dream Office Space


The biggest takeaway from exploring boho chic-inspired interior design is to not be afraid to take risks in mixing and matching different colors, textures, and patterns.
