Bohemian interiors all carry commonalities but there are many different ways in which to individually hone the aesthetic. This inspirational collection of beautiful boho interiors demonstrates five divergent takes on the vibe. Our first boho variation is a rich umber cocoon with chunky textures, tribal influences, and decor features that are inspired by the arch trend. Home design number two is a refined modern space with green botanical accents. Rustic romance shapes boho interior number three, with a particularly dreamy bedroom. Mid-century influences lightly flavour home number four, and our final stop is an impressive, high-ceilinged abode with a decidedly luxe bohemian decor scheme, high-end furniture, and a stunning fireplace.

Replacing one existing house and a warehouse, this large family home was made to complement the tropical lifestyle of Kerala, India. Created by The Design Room, the architecture sympathetically retains the native trees of the 600 square metre site, and encloses several of them within a central courtyard design. The built spaces branch out from this open-air heart of the home, which achieves a cosy connection. The open plan layout was guided by the humid climatic conditions of the region. The benefits of cross ventilation, passive cooling, and natural lighting satisfied the vision for an energy-efficient home. Outside, the vegetation contrasts vibrantly with the visual heat of iron-rich red laterite stone.

Glimpses of the sun, silvery moon, and bright stars paint a peaceful connection with nature. Living spaces are placed on the top floor to take advantage of the outlook, whilst bedrooms, workspaces, a gym, and cinema make up the remainder of three levels.

A slow-paced, nature-kissed serenity trickles through this modern Indian house design, which was created by the talent at architectural firm Evolving Radical Aesthetics. From the outside, the modern home is trimmed with mature palm trees and established plant beds, which frame the fresh white render of asymmetrical architecture. Inside the house, a bold staircase design dominates a wide entryway that leads into open and airy living rooms. The simple but stylish living spaces pause at light-filled courtyards that provide a blissful through-breeze.
