Coming to us from France, boho-chic can not be attributed to the traditional European interiors. The abundance of decor, difficult to combine at first glance details, riot of colors ... However, if you understand the history of its appearance, it is not surprising - originally the concept applied to the houses of the Parisian gypsy bohemia.
The modern "Boho Chic" has become more elegant - now it is considered an original and elegant decoration, which has not lost its identity. In this article, we will tell you about the peculiarities of the kitchen, sustained in the style of Boho - with detailed recommendations and photos.
What it is?
At first glance, it may seem that the boho is an incomprehensible mixture of various accessories and chaotically selected colors.
And here it is: as in any other style, there are rules that you need to follow.
On the other hand, a certain freedom is preserved - there is no such rigid framework, as, for example, in the baroque or Mediterranean type of design.
And yet, let's see what is worth emphasizing:
- Abundance of accessories and decor - the cornerstone is boho-chic. They can relate to different styles, the main thing - that the decor expresses your inner world. Decorate the kitchen with things related to your hobbies, family traditions ... Very antiques and various things are welcome, which pass from generation to generation.
- Naturalness of materials: from plastic and metal will have to be abandoned. In the rest everything depends on your imagination - wood, wallpaper, brick, ceramics ...
- Pay attention to ethnic motives: they are ideally suited to the Boho style.
- The choice of colors is wide enough, but it is better to give preference to natural shades that occur in nature. They should be bright and saturated, but not acidic - orange, blue, red ... The palette in the Boho is practically unlimited.
- Designer Council: If you feel that the design project is very bright, add white as a background - it will soften the atmosphere.
- Textile. A lot of textiles. It is impossible to overdo it. Of course, in the kitchen this rule is more difficult to follow than in other rooms. However, curtains, upholstered furniture, tablecloths and napkins should be conspicuous and full participants in the interior.
Style of chic-chic in the interior of home cooking has one big "danger" - it is easy to forget about the sense of proportion, turning the room into a sample of kitsch, where everything is too much.
We offer you to see photos of examples where this error was avoided.
Note that it is not necessary to try to combine all the colors of the rainbow. If this approach seems too bold to you, consider beige tones with bright color accents. It is very interesting to look at this background turquoise textiles.
Pay attention to the pictures - they are different, but are consistent in a single scale. This helps create a holistic interior.
Lovers of plants should not even be doubted - it will suit them well. A large amount of greenery is another traditional move that can be well beaten. If the kitchen is small, but high, it is better to choose pots, not pots - so valuable horizontal surfaces will not be occupied. In addition, so you add a bulk room.
Bright dishes, an unusual chandelier with ornaments - such a combination could be an alyapia. But if you make a neutral background, the design will be stylish and not rude.
Want a more modern design of the apartment, then try to borrow from the Boho only some elements: for example, bright colors and an abundance of paintings on the wall.
Of course, this is a departure from some key ones. On the other hand, if you are comfortable in such a place - there is no sense to refuse, self-expression is a priority moment in this direction.
The traditional method - brick "aged walls". They look particularly impressive in spacious rooms. The impression is created by stylish old-style chandeliers and a flashy retro-refrigerator.
However, it will not be easy to find such items: we recommend that you look for foreign sites like EBay or find a store where they can be brought to order.
Pay attention to the little things: any detail can play a decisive role in creating an atmosphere of boho-chic. Unusual colored vases, books, posters ... All this is inexpensive, and the result is beyond praise.
It is not necessary to achieve ideal combinations: the main thing is that each element is liked personally by you and reflects some part of life. But without excesses: trying to arrange in the kitchen a flea market with a thousand little things will still be a brute force.
Remember that in the kitchen you will not only have to enjoy the interior, but also to prepare: everything should be as comfortable as possible.
In the spacious rooms of the private house, the possibilities for fantasy are even greater. Here you have to observe the balance: you need to use the dimensions of the room, but do not make it visually less. As an option, experiment with the textures, giving up the three-dimensional decor.
At first glance, the advice sounds strange - is not it more logical to do this in small kitchens? But boho-chic is fully revealed in a large space. Unusual furniture, painting on an apron, bottles and jars ... Do not forget about the characteristic textiles: beautiful bright towels will be a better accent than a statue or a massive stucco.
The combination of interior items looks interesting: bright caramel household appliances very stylishly contrasts with aged furniture. Here, too, you need to clearly withstand the line: stylization is appropriate, but it's better to restore the table for natural reasons.
By the way, about furniture: Do not try to collect the perfect kitchen set. A little bit of disagreement is what you need. Stick to common motives, but choose different colors and shapes of chairs.
The remarkable feature of the Boho-chic style is that many decorative elements you can make with your own hands.
Posters and paintings, rugs on the seats, unusual caskets and figurines. All this is not so difficult to do, having shown a little perseverance and accuracy.
If you are not sure of your abilities, then you do not need to run to the store immediately. Rummage on the mezzanine, ask your friends: sometimes these designer masterpieces are where no one could have thought. Or visit the local flea markets - sure, there will be a lot of original gizmos.
Here's what we strongly recommend to spend, so it's on beautiful and inviting chandeliers. Feel free to choose the most catchy options - they will be appropriate. And from the usual point lights you have to give up - yet they are too modern and do not carry uniqueness.
note on an apron on a photo: transitions of shades are looked enough freshly and non-standard. However, the main nuance of the interior is not in it, but in books matched in tone. Out of the box, is not it?
Boho-chic can be decorated and in low-key colors. How about classical white? In this case, in the choice of decor you do not limit anything - all sorts of bright details on this background will look very advantageous.
A huge role is played by dishes: still do not forget about the functional purpose of the room. Books, toys, figurines are good and "in the subject". But if you miss out on dishes and cutlery, then you lose a lot: boring plates are able to instantly spoil any design.
note on bright ceramics, colored porcelain, unusual painted glass ... The more original - the better!
Let's sum up the results? Despite the abundance of stereotypes associated with it, boho-chic is quite an easy-to-implement style. In addition, it is pleasantly surprising its budget - most items can be made with your own hands or buy inexpensively.
So if you like expressing yourself through the interior - we recommend you try it. On other ways to create a fashionable and beautiful cuisine read in this section.
