Take a preemptive strike against autumn drab with interior fab by incorporating the latest colour clash trend à la Creative Bohemian into your home.
It’s all about mixing and matching funky fabrics in a clash of colour, patterns and textures with eclectic furniture styles, homespun art and vintage favourites.
Although this trend is all about breaking classic colour code rules, there are still certain things to consider in order to achieve the right look. For maximum impact choose your ‘colour clash’ palette carefully to reflect the desired mood of the room and keep the space visually balanced.
The palette can either be light or dark but on the softer side. The lighter palette features warm colours like Soft White, Burnt Orange, Dusty Rose and Cinnabar Red. The darker palette includes hues like Moss Green and Chocolate Brown teamed with Ink Blue. Use a shared palette to inject movement and interest.

Mix and match a myriad of different textiles and designs in your cushions, throws, tapestries, area rugs and window treatments. Layer lush textures - linens, chenilles and textured cottons - and pattern clashes in a rich rhapsody of colour that truly represents you.

Incorporate a vintage chandelier or colourful light, adding a spectacular focal point to any Creative Bohemian space. Hued candles in vivid vintage coloured glass bottles or jars will also cast a ambient boho glow throughout the room.
And don't forget to use cushions, cushions and more cushions in all colours and patterns for a colour clash décor à la Creative Bohemian with maximum visual appeal.
