With an array of color and prints, varying textures, billowing fabrics and layers of worldly decor, boho style is one of the most fun to create from the ground up. If you’re looking into adding some funky nooks and crannies throughout your home, we’ve definitely compiled a beautiful assembly of inspiration for you.
These 40 bohemian bedrooms will definitely help you in your redesign. Fashion your eclectic tastes after any one of these setups!
What Exactly Is Bohemian Style?
Bohemian styles are characterized by an absence of organization, favoring carefree layers of different colors, textures, and patterns. While there are some common behaviors associated with the bohemian appearance, unlike with modern or minimalist styles, there are no absolute laws for you to follow. The bohemian aesthetic is fundamentally individualized and laidback. Boho styles are created solely for your enjoyment.
Interior design in the Bohemian style began in the nineteenth century in Paris. It was founded on the belief of artists, authors, nomads, and performers who all claimed creativity is more important than money.
By fusing their separate cultures, values, and refusal to submit to conventional wisdom, they unintentionally launched an interior design trend. Thus, the boho style was born, and it was named after those wandering artists, created to subvert conventional beauty standards by eschewing norms in favor of the unexpected.
How Do You Get a Bohemian Look?
There are three things that you need to focus on when you’re looking to bring that boho aesthetic to your house: colors, furniture, and decorations.
While there are no restrictions in Bohemian decorating, you will notice that certain colors are more popular, especially metallic and earthy tones. Consider greens and deep browns as the foundation hues, then embellish with vibrant purple, flaming orange, and electric blue. The way colors are combined and layered is what distinguishes this style.
One of the most notable characteristics of the Bohemian style in interior design is that inviting feel. Whenever you step into a boho room, it feels cozy and welcoming, and furniture is definitely one way to achieve this look.
Typically, bohemian furniture is not found in stores. Because these rooms are typically packed with furniture accumulated through time, second-hand and vintage things fit nicely in. Every furniture piece that you opt for has to be unique and convey a message. Have fun exploring old shops in your neighborhood and selecting each piece independently. If you adore it, it will naturally fit in.
With comfortable couches and chairs in vivid colors, both you and your visitors will experience the Boho vibe. Floor pillows and throw rugs will help create an inviting ambience for floor seating. Furthermore, while a Boho space should evoke a sense of coziness, sleek furniture pieces will not work here. Choose pieces that are comfy and relaxing, such as daybeds or chaises.
Boho is the polar opposite of simple, modern, and sleek. It adheres to the “more is more” attitude. The secret to mixing and matching decorative items in a Boho environment is to experiment.
Burlap and sisal are both natural, basic fabrics that can be blended with chenille and silk. Materials used to recreate the boho style, while having a worn appearance, shouldn’t be damaged, but they should also not be sparkling and new. Pillows, drapes, and throw rugs all work together to create a cozy, culturally inspired hangout.
Bohemian Style vs. Hippie
When it comes to fashion, it’s essentially about what you want to wear or how you want to mix and match your items. These garments will primarily fall under the casual category.
Thus, nobody would instantly adopt a hippy or bohemian look, unless they were attending a themed party. Thus, there are individuals that wear various styles of fashion on a daily basis. You may frequently ask why this is the case. Although it is not entirely typical, they appear to take pleasure in showing their attire.
Boho-Chic Look – The Do’s and Don’ts
Do: Opt for rustic finishes.
The boho-chic look has some very strong hippie influences, which are naturally showcased in how you decorate your home. The influx of accessories made of natural or raw materials, including the likes of rattan, wood, or hemp, is very common in boho-chic interior decor. Consider woven wall art, macrame plant hangers, sisal area rugs, leather footstools, or a stylish ladder.
Don’t: Use too much black.
If you’re going for a trendy bohemian look, avoid massive black pieces of furniture or large pieces of furniture in extremely dark woods. Continue to use light, vibrant woods.
Dark woods are quite substantial, whereas light bleached woods create an airy feel and a clear canvas for the textures, patterns, and colors you’ll be adding to your home. If you follow this route, you should still remember to incorporate one or two darker objects to serve as an anchor for your room.
Do: Think global.
Given the heritage of boho culture as a celebration of roaming artists, global-inspired home accessories are critical in a bohemian-inspired room. Buddha sculptures, Moroccan lamps, tribal prints from India, they all contribute to the cosmopolitan look.
If you’re fortunate enough to travel to exotic locations, look for beautiful souvenirs that can help you create an ethnic-eclectic feel in your home with authentic pieces.
Don’t: Go crazy with patterns.
If you’re stuck, try selecting an overarching color palette and working within it. Violet and gold, for example, or rust and blue, or red and mandarin. Remember to provide a resting space for your eyes as well; otherwise, visual overload can occur.
Therefore, if you have a large vibrant rug, keep the base furnishings very simple with only a splash of accent color that complements the rug’s bold color statement.
Similarly, you could drape a tapestry with a large burst of colors for your sofa. Maintain a neutral sofa and blend the tapestry’s colors into whatever throw pillows you choose for the room.
Do: Go for low-profile seating.
The boho ideology is all about unwinding, unwinding, and unwinding. Floor cushions, leather poufs, plush ottomans, and bean bag chairs are all excellent low-level sitting alternatives, as they urge guests to sit and stay awhile.
Do: Opt for a mixture of lights.
String lights, lanterns, eccentric chandeliers, and candles are all great options. I constantly emphasize the significance of lighting in every décor style and considering lighting when creating a boho room is no exception. You may mix and match any type of light source you choose, but I’ve found that natural fiber pendants work best for the bohemian style.

With cute planters

One particularly cool idea is to make floating candle holders like the one featured on acoastalbride. You can hang these not just in your bedroom but in other spaces as well including outside.
With yarn wall hangings
