Here is a more textured room which has a bit of the opposite problem from the first photo - it has a lot of the vintage and not enough of the modern to make it true bohemian chic. Nevertheless it is also a good start in creating this type of space. The old bed, the knick knacks and the various tables and stools could easily be updated with some vintage fabric to bring the room together and to modernize it while keeping the old pieces in place. I know that the antique walls here are part of the room's look but I'd love to see some bold wallpaper or fabric added to bring color to the room.
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.
in the large space, the smaller furniture (save the bed) really make an impact in creating an open environment. the varied wood colors and styles are eclectic and casual with a certain elegance. the colors don't necessarily match but coordinate well. the aged look of everything makes it look ramtic and timeless
This is adding refinement to very raw bones. I love how the walls haven't been made over. There is a wonderful perfume shop in Florence that, in all of its refinement, has kept the damage on its worn, ancient walls, creating unexpected and authentic beauty.
