Summer is almost here which means it’s time to start taking the party outside. I absolutely love outdoor entertaining. Since we moved to a house on the water, our guests enjoy being able to sit and enjoy the breeze while also enjoying being with friends. Our outdoor space is also great for us to enjoy Monday morning coffees or Thursday dinners. The great thing about an outdoor space is that you can be more adventurous in your design choices since they tend to be separate from other parts of your home. One style that’s becoming more popular for outdoor spaces is the boho-chic look. Boho-chic design is inspired by eclectic, global finds that mix colorful patterns, layers, textures, and natural materials. If you’re looking to create your own boho-chic outdoor space, here’s what to look for.
A boho-chic outdoor space leans into natural design and compliments nature with furniture made from natural materials. Think your rattans, natural wood, and woven textures. While rattans and natural wood tend to be the most popular, add in a woven textured chair for a more modern take or even concrete pieces for an industrial spin.
Textures & Textiles
One of the key things to creating that boho-chic vibe is layers of textures, patterns, and colors! Use this as a chance to have fun with your textiles. Incorporate pillows, throws, rugs, and poufs for a design that feels cozy, comfortable, and inviting.

This is where your space comes alive! Once you have your furniture, textures, and textiles, add in plants and flowers, baskets, trays, or screens to bring in additional texture, color, and even organization to your outdoor space. Then pour a glass of your favorite drink, sit back, and enjoy the nice weather and good vibes.
