Bohemian style may not look like it did 200 years ago, but its nonconformist and artistic undertones are still prevalent in the style today. And while we love boho furniture and décor throughout the house, it’s especially our favorite in the bedroom. Colorful, cozy, and eclectic, Bohemian-style bedrooms perfectly embody the message “come in and make yourself at home.”
Want to transform your bedroom into a boho-chic space? Read our how-to in five easy steps.
Layer Boho Rugs
Bohemian area rugs are full of color and often feature elaborate designs. Instead of having one large area rug, layer multiple rugs for added texture and depth. Aztec, mandala, and ikat patterns are especially global in style and will complement other Bohemian textiles.
Mix Boho Bedding
Boho style follows the philosophy of “more is more,” and the same can be said for your bedding. In addition to bold colors and global designs, boho-chic bedding features oversized florals and marble-inspired patterns. Mix-and-match sheets with your comforter, duvet cover, or quilt, and you’ll get a look that’s unique and carefree (just like the Bohemian artists of yore).
Cover your bed and accent seating with decorative throw pillows. Boho pillows feature a textured weave, tassels, or fringe, and add dimension to your sleep space. The key is to mix-and-match pillows for eclectic appeal.
Style Boho Furniture
Bohemian bedroom furniture features rattan, bamboo, and live edge wood. However, don’t hesitate to swap out natural materials for furniture in bold, earthy colors. Boho style lends itself to statement pieces, such as a velvet headboard or wicker nightstand, too.
Bohemian bedroom décor is handmade or artisan-inspired – think ceramic vases, macramé plant hangers, and crocheted blankets. Instead of traditional artwork, hang a decorative wall tapestry or piece of fiber art from the wall. Bohemian style pays tribute to nature as well, so bring plants into your bedroom as space and conditions allow.
