TIPS FOR YOUR OUTDOOR BOHEMIAN DINING AREA
Curvy Lounge Chairs
These chairs go a long way to creating that romantic comfort and relaxed feel which is key in the bohemian element. You don’t want anything too formal for your outdoor retreat. Keep the tones softer when choosing colors
Flowing plants with climbing roses or flowers of any sort can really boost your outdoor oasis. If you are not a gardener, think about getting something low maintenance or even see if you can pull off the fake plant look!
Remember, wooden is always a central element to creating that rustic romantic feel. Save it for the table and chairs but get the cushions to add that extra bit of comfort for the seating. You don’t have to buy new – keep your eyes peeled for discards on Craigslist on the free section!
Bright Patterned Cushions
Choosing wonderfully patterned cushions to add to those chairs is a fun part of creating the boho feel. Keep it comfy and don’t be shy as far as patterns and shades go. You can find inexpensive fun prints on Amazon and Etsy. Just order the cover and use your own pillow inserts.
Lanterns, Macrame and Fairy Lights
A lantern-lit table is super romantic and creates a soothing ambiance around the dining table. You should also scout for spots maybe along the garden path, a fence or some trees where you can hang lighting.
Remember whatever you do, don’t forget about the lighting! It’s a small detail that makes a big difference.
A White Lace/Net Table Cloth
Over a wooden table, a white net tablecloth will work a treat. You won’t need anything too fancy as it will get dirty quickly but something subtle is good.
Floor Searing/Chunky Comfy Floor Cushions
Small floor seating or some solid cushions can be evenly spaced around a table. This is the ultimate element to complete your bohemian outdoor dining space. Even though it may not be the comfiest option for guests whilst eating, you can always store the main chairs elsewhere and keep these ones for show.
Great stuff! Now all you need to do is hit the shops, rummage through your wardrobes and go visit some retail websites. Then, you can start creating your ultimate tranquil bohemian paradise outdoors.
