neutral bohemian bedroom
Think of the bohemian decorating style, and you most likely imagine a room filled with a riot of bright color. And in fact, that is the most common look for this theme. But as has been stated already, boho is a style without rigid rules. There’s no law stating you can’t do a wonderfully bohemian look entirely in neutrals.
This room, from Blissfully Eclectic, has the bohemian look perfectly played out in neutral. It’s filled with everything that makes boho so wonderful: lots of patterns, many different types of textiles, global influence, tons of personality. The neutral palette takes the excitement down a notch, however, proving that even boho style can be peaceful and serene when it wants to be.

Even books can become art when arranged on towering bookcases near the bed, as in this colorful and exuberant bedroom from Casa Chaucha. Another fun touch: overlapped, propped-up artwork in place of a headboard.

Boho style typically means a flair for global influences, like the Moroccan touches in the room shown here. And while there’s plenty of excitement in this exotically beautiful bedroom, notice that the palette is limited to purple, gray, and chartreuse. While a rainbow of color is quite common with this style, it’s not required; remember, this is a decorating theme without much regard for “rules.”

If you’re on the hunt for artwork to hang on your bedroom walls, check out your local thrift stores, flea markets, or antique malls. You’ll find lots of intriguing paintings, drawings and photos just waiting to liven up your boho bedroom, just like this space from The Decorista.
bohemian bedroom chair
Whether it’s wood, fabric, or wicker (like the gorgeous vintage screen shown here), your boho bedroom needs a screen or two. Use one as a headboard the way Justina Blakeney of The Jungalow does here, or prop one in a corner, use a screen to provide privacy or mark off a sitting area.

Go all out with the bright tones when creating your bohemian abode, but pay attention to the details. Go for prints and distressed styles as a way of incorporating that eclectic and easy spirit. This find from Decordemon gives us a crisper take on the hippie-infused design we’re used to.

While every bedroom should have at least one or two houseplants – they help purify the air, improve your mood, and add a touch of natural beauty hard to match with manmade décor – a veritable jungle of houseplants isn’t at all uncommon in a bohemian space. Choose easy-to-grow greenery like snake plant, pothos, dracaena and Chinese evergreen, and you’ll liven up your room, even if your thumb isn’t very green.
Textiles, and lots of them, are a hallmark of bohemian décor, and when those textiles are soft and billowing, so much the better. Want to give your bedroom the cozy feel of a gypsy caravan? Then tack a stretch of patterned fabric over the ceiling, letting the material billow and drape slightly in the center and at the edges. So pretty and romantic.
bohemian bedroom rug
No matter what the decorating scheme, the bed is the star of the bedroom. Because of the emphasis on textiles, a bed piled high with cozy, lavish bedding is a natural for a bohemian style. Layer quilts on top of bedspreads, add multiple throw blankets, mix a variety of shams and throw pillows: it’s hard to go too far with this decorating theme.

If there is any decorating “rule” that’s often broken when it comes to bohemian décor, it’s lots of mixed patterns, especially on the bed. The looks-like-something-Grandma-might-have-crocheted bedspread adds a wonderful blast of vintage fun to this bedroom decorated by The Jungalow, but why stop there? The southwestern area rug, mismatched throw pillows, fabric-draped light fixture, and tapestry instead of headboard all work together to add excitement and personality to this room.
String lights are a boho staple and for good reason. They add a little touch of magic to a space and provide just enough light for romantic encounters if that’s on your agenda for the evening. String them around the headboard, use them to outline your windows, or just loosely drape them from the ceiling, as in the bedroom shown here (but be careful not to let the lights hang low enough to catch around you as you walk.)
bohemian bedroom set
Bohemian style often takes traditional or vintage furnishings and then gives them a whole new look by adding in blasts of color, pattern and global spice. For example, the chaise lounge couch and turned-post bed in this room designed by Kathryn Ireland are traditional designs, but wow, with a dizzying array of pattern and bright color, they are anything but old-fashioned.

Bohemian style equals artistic style, so it’s no surprise that a mishmash of treasured artwork is a favorite way to decorate the walls in this look. Frame your favorite paintings, fabric scraps, photographs, old maps or botanical etchings, a collection of feathers, vintage handkerchiefs: whatever strikes your fancy.

Bohemian style can be quite grownup and glamorous when it wants to be. This purple, gold, and brown bedroom is full of sensuous textiles: the drapes, the headboard, the bedding, and the throw pillows. There’s just enough pattern here to keep things hopping, but not so much that it’s overwhelming or juvenile. Proof that boho isn’t just a look for college kids or teens; it’s also perfectly at home in a sophisticated master bedroom when done right.
bohemian teenage bedroom
Global influence is a big part of the bohemian look – and the reason why it’s sometimes referred to as gypsy style – so feel free to mix and match your cultures. Here, a wonderfully intricate Indian wooden room divider provides a bit of privacy around a bed adorned with warm Mexican design on the throw blanket and pillow.
bohemian teenage girl bedroom
While there’s no question teenage girls love boho style, it’s a look that also works very well in a teen boy’s bedroom. There might be less bright color and less floral exuberance, but the basic idea remains the same: a mishmash of well-loved items and a ton of personality.
