3 Ways To Get The Hippie-Chic Look

It’s never too late to embrace the sun; so grab the rug and a pot of paint and get decorating! This look is energetic, colourful and above all else, fun! Here are 3 ways you can invite the right vibe into your room.

  1. Colour, colour and more colour
    In case you’ve not noticed yet, this look is all about colour. And not just any colour, bright and bold is the way to go. Oranges, reds, dark pinks and greens are the go to shades for any hippie-chic room- and don’t be afraid to plaster the stuff into every corner! Avoid pale shades or bright colours, think safari meets Moroccan market. Bold colours are important, but so are those with depth!
  2. Make your own cushions
    This goes for any comfy fabric, beanbags, footstools, rugs or throws. Grab a bold pattern and get to work; but be careful which area of the room you draw attention to. The bed and cushion area is the best and safest spot to draw in the eyes, so use lighter colours there! Avoid overly light or attention grabbing colours on things such as the rug, keep that dark! Follow these rules and be creative and you can’t go wrong!
  3. Ethnic inspiration
    This is the perfect opportunity to shop for beautiful statement pieces. It’s important that your room reminds you of travelling and far away places, so don’t be shy to add a little bit of India, Africa, Morocco and Mexico in there! Statement lamps are a great way to do this, especially those involving symbols of animals. Partially covered or patterned lamps can also be amazing for this look, as they both easily catch the eye and set the mood for the rest of the room.
