Since their heyday in the 1960s, hippie culture continues to be a period favourite within American culture. If the hippie lifestyle appeals to you, you may want to extend your love of hippies to your home decor.

Hippies often prefer a more minimalistic lifestyle and decorating style. Some key elements in hippie decor include bean bag chairs for seating and wooden second-hand vintage furniture.


Rather than using doors to divide rooms, consider hanging beaded curtains. Look for accessories with celestial themes and other nature-oriented designs, such as butterflies, flowers and mushrooms. Peace signs can also add to a bohemian look, such as a peace sign shaped clock or framed art.

Colour Schemes

When embracing a hippie decorating style, stick with colours that are more earth tone and natural. The hippie lifestyle embraces nature and all it encompasses, so shades of brown, green and blue work well for hippie decor. Splashes of tie-dyed material can bring more colour to your space.
