1. Hang a gorgeous tapestry above your bed.

 

Instead of using a headboard, try decorating your space with a tapestry like these ones.

Find the grey one here and the red one here.

2. Mix and match decorative Kilim pillows.

 

They bring texture and color and they look good with basically every type of decor.

3. Use vintage Moroccan rugs as wall hangings, or as actual rugs.

 

They can be layered to add crazy texture and color to your floors, or hung up solo as a centerpiece.

4. Decorate with macrame wall hangings and hammocks.

 

Macrame is not only pretty, but it can also be functional! Who wouldn’t want to relax in one of these?

5. Use some vintage rattan and natural fiber accent pieces.

 

Natural fibers bring a sense of calm into a space. Going overboard will make your home look dated. Instead, stick to accent pieces like end tables or wicker chairs and make sure to surround them with a lot of other textural elements.

6. Light up your space with the help of some natural elements.

 

Himalayan pink salt lamps are a great way to add that natural ~hippie goddess vibe~ to any space. The agate night lights will also lend a soft touch as you’re falling asleep at night.

7. Cover your home in comfy cushions.

 

Cozy, cushion-y furniture is a surefire way to make your home feel like a hippie haven. Create a special reading nook, or just keep floor pillows out for extra seating.

8. Bring crystals and geodes into your space.

 

Whether it’s for decoration or positive ~vibes~, crystals can brighten up any space and help you stay grounded. They don’t have to be large like these ones.

9. Rely on indigo-dyed fabric accents.

 

Indigo dyed fabric is like the modern answer to traditional tie-dye. Indigo dye will provide a calming, usually deep blue hue reminiscent of the deep sea. Bring the element of water, or at least something that reminds you of it, into your home for added relaxation.

10. Create a dedicated place for listening to your records.

11. Indulge your inner free spirit and get an indoor or outdoor rope swing.

 

Everyone deserves to swing around after a hard day.

Incense does more than just smell good. It helps to uplift your spirit and bring you to a place of comfort and familiarity. There are a lot of types of incense, so pick a holder that works for whatever type you like- whether it be sticks, cones, wood-based smudge incense, or burning oils.

15. Use twinkly string lighting or paper lanterns to set the mood.

 

The dim lighting will help you calm down at the end of the day so that you can set your intentions and goals for tomorrow with the help of a peaceful glow.

16. Use baskets to hold everything!

 

Baskets are the best and easiest way to bring color, texture and decor to your home in a functional way. Use them for laundry, blankets, magazines, or pretty much any other stuff you have that needs a home. They make it easy to keep your space clean because you can basically just toss stuff in them- a method of “relaxed organization” generally preferred by the free spirit.

17. Fill your shelves and tables with little decorative boxes, vases and tchotchkes that you love.

No hippie home is complete without a little bit of clutter! Just keep things clustered together and they won’t feel messy or out of hand. Play around with your grandmother’s collection of salt and pepper shakers or a few small decorative jars- but never leave a space totally thread bare!
