Texture is a great way to add dimension to a space and let the history shine through. While the walls in this room aren't for everyone, you can use a similar effect on wood furniture to get the lived-in vibe.
Mix patterns and textiles. Ethnic rugs, tapestries and throws will make your space feel worldly. A collection of artwork and photographs add to the well-traveled feel.
Get creative! Think of new ways to use furniture pieces, such as this Chinese cabinet as a vanity, or hanging clothes on a tree stump.
Keep it casual. Bohemian living is not about matching or spaces that feel too "decorated". A bed without a headboard works in this room.
Play with the space. Light furniture pieces, such as these chairs, can be moved around easily, making a living room more adaptable to hanging out.
Create vignettes with vintage objects, collections, and books.
