From selecting the perfect colors and fabrics to choosing the right pieces of furniture, these tips will help you create a Boho Dining Table that looks stylish and unique. So let’s get started!

1) Find the perfect table

When it comes to designing a boho dining table, the first step is to find the perfect table. You can easily find beautiful neutral tables at stores like West Elm, Wayfair, and more. To keep with the boho aesthetic, stick to a neutral color like a lighter warm wood. Don’t worry about finding the exact same style or shape as what you have in mind – you can always use accessories and layering to make it your own. Just focus on finding a table that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Once you have the perfect boho dining table, you can move on to the fun part of adding your personal touches and creating a unique space to enjoy meals with loved ones and entertaining!

2) Consider your color scheme

One of the most important aspects of designing a boho dining table is the color scheme. When it comes to creating a boho tablescape, think earthy tones, like when you think of Arizona! Sands, beige’s, browns, off-whites, and greens are perfect for this style. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color with bold accessories like table runners or placemats.

Get color inspiration from the outdoors! Beach boho style is always a popular choice with its natural hues of blues and greens. Or take inspiration from the desert with warm earthy tones. Whatever you choose, make sure it fits the overall theme of your space and complements the other elements you plan to incorporate.

Remember, the boho style is all about mixing and matching. So, don’t be afraid to combine different patterns, textures, and colors. Just make sure they all work together cohesively. Incorporating a well-planned color scheme will help set the tone for your boho dining table. Keep these tips in mind as you choose your palette for a tablescape that is perfectly boho!

3) Choose the right chairs

Now that you’ve got a table, choosing the right chairs is key. You want to opt for chairs that are comfortable, functional, and that complement the overall aesthetic of the space. When selecting your chairs, think about the materials and textures you want to incorporate. Rattan and woven options are a popular choice, as they add a natural and bohemian touch to the room. Alternatively, if you prefer a more eclectic look, mix and match different chairs to create an eclectic and interesting arrangement. Above all, make sure that the chairs you choose are comfortable, as they will be the centerpiece of your dining area.


4) Think about accessories

When designing your boho dining table, it’s important to think about the accessories you’ll be incorporating. The right accessories can really bring your table to life and add that extra bohemian touch. Here are some ideas to consider:

  1. Textiles: Add a table runner or some neutral napkins to add texture and depth to your table.
  2. Plates and bowls: Mix and match plates and bowls with different patterns and colors to create a unique look.
  3. Glassware: Incorporate different types of glasses, like margarita classes or colored glasses, to add some personality.
  4. Centerpieces: Think about adding a unique centerpiece, like a succulent garden or a vase of faux palms!
  5. Table decor: Consider adding some boho-inspired decor like dreamcatchers, feathers, or even a macrame table runner.

5) Choosing the perfect accent light

A key element is finding the perfect dining light that ties everything together. A boho inspired light fixture can add an earthy and cozy touch to the space, making it feel inviting and comfortable. The key is to think texture and choose a light fixture that incorporates different elements such as woven materials or organic shapes.

Here are some of my favorite boho inspired dining light fixtures:


6) Add some lush greenery

What a better way to add natural elements than with some plants! Whether it’s a potted succulent, a dry oversized palm, greenery can really bring the bohemian vibe to your dining space. You can place your greenery on the center of the table or use it to fill in gaps around the table. A tip for using plants is to mix them up – choose a combination of tall, leafy and spiky plants to create interest and depth. You can also experiment with different vessels such as terracotta pots, woven baskets, or even old glass jars to create a unique and eclectic look. Not only will plants bring the boho feel to your dining table, but they’ll also add a touch of freshness and life to the space.


7) Use Dry Stems

If you’re looking for a low-maintenance yet visually appealing addition to your boho dining table, try adding some dry stems. Palms, Faux Pampas grass, and neutral florals are all great options that can be easily spread around your table or displayed in a larger vase as a centerpiece. These dry stems are versatile and can make a statement or add a subtle touch of texture to your table decor. Plus, they require little upkeep and will last for a long time, making them a practical yet stylish choice for your dining table.

8) Hang some neutral artwork

Artwork is an important element in any room. It can add depth, texture, and color to your dining table. When selecting art pieces for your boho dining table, don’t limit yourself to traditional paintings. Look for anything that speaks to you and your style. Here are some ideas:

  • Tapestry: A woven tapestry can add a bohemian feel to your dining room. Look for something with rich colors and a unique design.
  • Wicker wall hanging: A wicker wall hanging is perfect for adding some texture to your space. It’s a great way to incorporate natural materials into your boho dining room.
  • Vintage posters: Vintage posters can add some retro charm to your dining table. Look for bold prints with lots of color.
  • Sculptures: Sculptures can add some visual interest to your dining table. Try to find something unique and quirky that will start a conversation.
    When hanging artwork, try to create a gallery wall that incorporates all of your pieces. Don’t be afraid to mix and match styles and sizes. You want to create a bohemian look that feels effortless and organic. Be sure to hang your artwork at eye level so that everyone can appreciate it while they’re sitting at the table.
  • Dreamcatcher: A dreamcatcher is a classic boho symbol that can add some whimsy to your dining room. Look for one with feathers and beads in earthy tones.
  • Botanical prints: Botanical prints are a great way to add some greenery to your space without having to worry about upkeep. Look for prints with large, bold leaves or delicate floral patterns.
  • Macrame wall hanging: A macrame wall hanging is a great way to add some texture and dimension to your dining room. Look for one with lots of knots and fringe.


9) Use candles, make it sparkle!

Candles are a great addition to any space! They create a warm and cozy atmosphere while adding a touch of style and elegance to the overall setup. When choosing candles for your table, consider investing in essential oil-based options. The unique blends of essential oil candles not only smell amazing but also offer a host of benefits for your mind and body. So, light up some candles, dim the lights, and let the magic unfold!

10) Have fun with it!

At the end of the day, creating a boho dining table is all about expressing your creativity and personality. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors, patterns, and textures to create a look that feels unique and authentic to you.
