11 of the Best Bohemian-style Homes from Around the World

Tired of the pared-back furniture and bare walls of Minimalism? This list is the perfect remedy.

Often a reflection of its owner, a bohemian home treads the fine line between free-spirited and chaotic. It's a tricky style to pull off, and we’ve seen some shockers - we’ll save you the horror stories. Instead, avoid disappointment with this list of our favourite bohemian homes.

Floating Island, Berlin

A home that floats? Why not. This artist’s studio/living space might be a little unusual, but that’s why it’s such a favourite of ours.

Broadleaf, LA

We admit, Broadleaf might not be as attention-grabbing as others on this list, but it still has plenty of character. The carefully collected furniture fits with the unique architecture of this home.

By the Books, Lisbon

Stacks of books? Check. Mismatched lampshades? Check. Distinctive architecture? Check. By the Books is crammed with bohemian charisma.

The Sanctuary, NYC

You can picture the owner of The Sanctuary just by looking at it. With a lived-in feel, it’s clearly been carefully furnished with personal touches over time.

Hesperides, LA

The ultimate bohemian weekend escape. We realise Hesperides isn’t the most luxurious home, but you can't deny its rustic charm.

The Gallerist, Paris

This one’s got personality, that’s for sure. It’s a little more sophisticated than the other homes on this list, but it’s bohemian vibes are unmistakable.

The Jungle Gym, NYC

In another instance, The Jungle Gym might feel cluttered – hanging ropes, mismatched furniture, an indoor swing, a bike suspended from the ceiling. Somehow, though, it pulls it off.

Wonderland, NYC

Minimalists look away now. With as many peculiar artefacts as a museum, each piece of furniture, artwork and object in Wonderland has a story to tell.

Target Practice, Copenhagen

Target practice might be small, but it manages to avoid feeling chaotic or messy. Can you spot the ladder leading to a rooftop garden? So enticing.

Cloud 9, NYC

A more pared-back version of the bohemian style keeps Cloud 9 feeling fresh – you’ll still find plenty of collected treasures dotted around the place, though.

Marlinspike, Rome

Ok, so Marlinspike is a little lacking in size, but the abundance of books, plants and dark wood create a cosy feeling.
