If you’d like to add some pizzazz to a dull hallway in your home, consider these bohemian decorating ideas that can coordinate well with any aesthetic – from traditional, to Scandi-minimal, or even modern-industrial. While free-spirited boho design typically incorporates layered textures, bright punches of color, and eclectic global influences, the narrow confines of a hallway let you edit down the look to just a few impactful pieces that play well with the rest of your decor.
Work in Some Weave
Natural or woven textures are very common in the boho look, so incorporate an oversized macrame wall hanging, or a woven rattan light shade. This will have a big impact, but the natural fibers and neutral colors work with just about any other color scheme or design style.
Add an Eye-Catching Runner
Create instant impact with a vibrantly colored or patterned hallway runner. Whether you go for jewel tones, pastels, or neutrals in a bold design, you’ll be introducing both visual interest and texture at the floor level. You’ll also help reduce wear and tear and dampen sound (in the case of wood-style floors), in what’s probably a fairly high-traffic area. If you have pets, consider something machine-washable.
Make Use of That Wall Space
There’s often substantial wall space in a hallway, so make the most of it with an artfully displayed gallery wall. But add more drama by dotting artwork and photography with pops of bright color or unexpected subject matter throughout the gallery. Another option is to choose whimsical, mismatched or brightly colored frames that draw the eye and add additional interest to your curated collection.
