How to Create Your Own Hippie Haven

- 6 Simple DIY Décor Ideas for Free Spirits, Music Lovers, & Trippy Tokers -

Is your décor looking a bit drab? Whether your abode needs a bit of an update, you’re moving into a new place, or you’re decorating your dorm, create your own hippie haven with these simple steps!

1. Choose Your Vibe

It’s no secret that the space you spend time in can have huge effects on your mood, outlook, and psyche. Creating the right vibe, a place where you feel like you can be your true self, is so important. But it doesn’t have to be super hard!

Whether you are a flower child, deadhead, stoner, or somewhere in between, designing your vibe is all about finding pieces that speak to you. So, build yourself a boho beauty’s dream bedroom, transform your pad with psychedelic touches, or make your room a shrine to your music memorabilia.  No matter what atmosphere you’re going for, we’ve got the coolest stuff to help you create your own hippie haven!

2. Cover Those Walls

One easy way to add some style to a room is to cover up blank walls! Throw up a few tapestries, pin up posters and signs, or even fly a flag. And you don’t have to stop at the walls- pin a tapestry to your ceiling to take the tranquil tone of the room to the next level!

Let your creativity go crazy and create an eclectic vibe by mixing your colors, textures, fabrics, materials and even your passions. Your room is a reflection of you, so it should be just as unique as your one-of-a-kind soul! 

3. Set the Mood

As we said from the start, creating the right vibe in your room is crucial. Set the mood in your space with chill lighting and relaxing fragrances! To light up your space, add some color with fun string lights, or a handcrafted touch with our Lokta paper lanterns. Further improve the atmosphere of the room with the aroma of your favorite incense! Find serenity with sandalwood smoke or purify your space with healing white sage. Find the scents which speak to you and let the smoke heal your mind, soul, and space. (And don't forget the burner!)

4. Make Room for Reflection

Create a cozy place where you can meditate! Whether your kind of meditation is listening to music, doing yoga, reading, or creating art, reserve a special corner of your room for this activity. Simply having a dedicated area for relaxing in your space, ready whenever you might need a moment of clarity, could help you get through those hectic times of the day!

5. Turn Up the Music

Any music lover’s quarters need an area dedicated to their favorite artists and festivals!  Show respect for your records and all your beloved band memorabilia by giving them the attention they deserve.  Create a shrine to the live shows you won’t ever forget by displaying your ticket stubs or other collectibles on your walls or keep them safe in an awesome vintage style metal lunch box.  Either way, seeing those memories will keep that indescribable feeling you get at festivals alive every day!

6. Surround Yourself with Stuff You Love

Fill your walls, tables, and shelves with little tchotchkes you love! Add a serene touch with a Buddha statue or a bit of playfulness with a cool handcrafted instrument. Explore our fun stuff, find what brings a smile to your face, and let your imagination go wild! The more tiny personal touches you add, the more the space goes from kinda cool to uniquely you.
