Bohemian inspired interiors are all about personal expression and adopting a non conforming approach.
Mixing textures, patterns and finishes to create a cosy and aspirational space is the essence of boho. When it comes to decorating a hallway, they can be tricky spaces to balance style with practicality.
We’ve put together some of our favourite ideas to inspire a boho hallway transformation.
23 Boho-Inspired Hallway Ideas That You’ll Love
1.Embrace Natural, Wooden Elements
Natural materials are synonymous with boho interiors. When designing your new hallway consider incorporating wooden elements.
A circular wooden mirror is a contemporary option and is handy for checking yourself before leaving the house.
2. Use Green Half Wall Panelling
Add interest to your hallway with a half panelled wall. This is ideal for hanging hooks from, which are perfect for storing bags and hats.
Paint your panelling dark green for a moody, boho finish.
3. All White Walls
Boho interiors encourage lots of natural light. Keep things light and bright by painting your hallway white. This is great for hallway spaces that don’t have access to a window.
White walls paired with wood and rattan look effortlessly stylish.

4. Dried Foliage Brings A Boho Touch
Consider displaying dried flowers in your hallway for a rustic touch. Rather than buying some from your local florist, cut some stems from your own garden and hang them upside down to let them fully dry out.
Dried lavender is fantastic for exuding a fresh and lovely scent that will fill your hallway and be welcoming to your guests.
5. Rattan Baskets Are A Must!
Rattan is a straightforward way of conforming to a boho inspired interiors scheme. They are a stylish storage solution that are perfect for hallways.
Use rattan baskets to store your shoes, hats and scarves.
6. Create A Focal Feature Wall With Wooden Logs
Lucky enough to have a log burner or open fire in your home but not sure of the best way to store your wood? Be inspired by the hallway pictured above and create a wall of logs.
Not only does this look super stylish and effective but it’s handy for storage purposes, too.
7. Add A Rustic Wooden Console Table
Console tables are ideal for slimline hallways. They are a compact piece of furniture that creates a focal point in any space.
Hang a mirror directly above a console table and display a vase of fresh flowers and a few of your favourite trinkets.
8. Lay A Bohemian Runner Rug
Cosy up your hallway floor with a runner or a rug. Jute designs scream boho and Persian styles are also a wonderful option.
You can pick these up from your local antique shops so be sure to look around yours before parting with a lot of cash.
9. Introduce Black Accents For Definition
Boho interiors often incorporate a lot of beige and neutral tones. A technique of modernising this is to contrast it with black accents.
Pick a few key elements that will juxtapose neutral walls such as a black piece of furniture, a mirror and a candleholder.
10. A Panelled Wooden Unit Brings Interest
If you’ve got space for a bigger piece of furniture in your hallway, consider a sleek wooden unit.
The one pictured above is ideal for storing shoes or any other items you want to be hidden away.
11. Combine Colour With Black & White
There are certain stereotypes that are evident in boho inspired interiors but the essence of boho is not following the rules! Therefore, choose a colour palette that you love and go with that.
12. Add A Circular, Black Framed Mirror
A contemporary take on boho incorporates sleek black accents. A circular black framed mirror is a stylish choice that works perfectly in hallways.
It’s a good idea to avoid harsh lines if you’re trying to create a boho scheme and instead opt for softer shapes.
13. Rattan Pendant Lights Bring Boho Charm
Hang a statement pendant light in your hallway to create an interesting focal point.
An oversized rattan light is the obvious choice for a boho space but also consider other designs that are made out of natural materials.
14. Hang Some Macrame Artwork
Macrame wall hangings and artwork are popular with boho interior lovers. Add visual interest to a blank wall in a hallway by hanging a bespoke macrame design.
There are plenty of places online where you can get one made to your specific requirements.
15. Create A Boho Gallery Wall
Not sure how to decorate your hallway? A gallery wall never fails.
If you’re looking for boho inspired prints, consider choosing artwork that imitates natural forms.
16. Lean Into Terracotta, Rusty Tones For Natural Warmth
Want to introduce colour into your hallway but not sure what to go for? If boho is your main source of inspiration then you may want to consider rusty terracotta tones.
Be sure to get at least three colour samples to try first to see how they work with the natural light that’s available in your hallway.
17. Mid Century Modern Furniture Works Too
Are you a lover of Mid Century furniture but not sure if it goes with a boho aesthetic? Don’t fear, mixing and matching different styles is a great way of expressing your individuality.
Have a key colour running through your scheme to make it feel cohesive.
18. Add Geometric Prints
Carry on the Mid-Century theme by incorporating geometric style prints into your hallway design. Choose retro inspired designs that have a vintage feel that will complement the rest of your boho scheme.
19. There’s No Such Thing As Too Many Plants
More is more when it comes to adding plants to a boho scheme. You may not have loads of space available in your hallway but there are clever ways you can go about this.
A ladder is a wonderful storage solution that uses height to its advantage. Use a ladder to display lots of different plants in funky pots.
20. Bring In A Large Scale Cactus
Evoke images of the desert with an oversized cactus. These can be pretty expensive so a top tip is to look in the sale section of your local garden centre. It may be looking a little worse for wear but have faith that you can bring it back to life!
House your cactus in a terracotta pot for a classic boho look.
21. Combine Different Textiles With Runner Rugs & Wall Tapestries
Bohemian interiors are all about layering different textures to cosy up a space.
Pair a patterned runner with a tapestry style wall hanging to add bundles of personality to your hallway.
22. Make A Unique Gallery Wall With Decorative Accents, Frames & Mirrors
When designing your own gallery wall don’t think you only have to use classic framed prints.
Get creative and include different types of wall hangings. We love the idea of using a faux bull skull, rattan baskets and gilded framed mirrors.
23. Create An Earthy Dwelling With Reds & Greens
Drench your hallway in rich colours for a sumptuous feel. Jewelled tones such as vibrant ruby reds and sunset oranges are perfect for a vibrant boho hallway design.
Take inspiration from the above hallway and add a rustic bench as the perfect place to perch.
