Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to be a Rockefeller to have high-quality art in your home. When finding art to decorate your bedroom, go for pieces that have neutral or nude palettes. Prints like leaves, plants, trees, grass, and the sun bode well for the boho look. Images of floral pants, the moon, or a mountain add a whimsical touch when they're in a hand-drawn illustrated medium. You can even channel '70s minimal geometric abstract art. Let your bedroom be your canvas.
Connect to nature and add depth and warmth to your home by adding natural and feminine touches to the bedroom. Have fun with different materials and textures like Persian or Ikat rugs. It's okay if the textiles are slightly worn. While you don't want your room to look disheveled, bohemian textiles as a whole tend to feel like a pair of well-worn jeans. Your bedroom should feel lived in, not like a showroom photo from a magazine. Get seagrass baskets to stay organized.
For a warm and inviting boho-style bedroom, use black and white textiles with a mix of other patterns. You can add in a vintage drawer chest painted in black and ivory. A vintage wicker lamp adds character, while a burgundy pillow throws in an element of surprise. The black and white color contrast adds an air of sophistication to the space. Get a couple of fleece throws while you're at it in ivory and deep-sea navy or rich coffee for that deep contrast.
When we're going for that classic, vintage boho look, we're going for perfectly undone yet completely done. Can you live in the dichotomy? You can! While most bohemian-style furniture isn't actually found online (they're usually secondhand pieces for consignment stores or bought from local artisans), you can still find brand new pieces. The best part is that if you buy something new, you can pass it on to a loved one in the future, and it'll end up being vintage then. So the boho tradition continues. Consider getting new teak furniture if you're looking for a way to bring natural elements to your home. Plus, the material is sturdy and long-lasting.
Get whimsical by going colorful with your bedroom. If you're trying to go by a strict rulebook, don't. Throw your cares to the wind and think outside of the box when it comes to color. Everything you knew about which colors clashed with what (red and purple? pink and brown? orange and green) don't matter with colorful boho. It's about being random and eclectic where you'll step into a bright and colorful space all your own. Try out floral throw pillows to compliment all the colors you have in your bedroom.
You don't have to go to Denmark to get your hygge on. To better appreciate the bohemian style, it's important to understand its origins. What we call boho today was originally from a design perspective that emerged in 19th century France when artists moved into the Romani areas of Paris to seek alternatives to the bourgeois. When these cultures converged, it gave rise to a vagabond lifestyle pursuing a creative and alternative life. You can incorporate international themes from France or Morocco to give an international feel to your boho bedroom.
You can mix and match styles like bohemian and cottagecore by going with cottage boho. This look goes well if you have wooden floors and a clean white wall. Add soft natural textiles with some striped linen and a cozy wool blanket. If you don't have throw blankets in your bedroom yet, that adds instant comfort and style to any room.
Last but not least, go simply bohemian by taking an easy and minimalist interpretation of the boho bedroom. If you do want to play by some rules, you'll want to lean towards earthy tones. A bright white four-poster bed feels fresh and airy. It's all about the details. Vintage rugs, a woven window shade, and a rustic corner stool will have you thinking that this is your real life--not just a fantasy.
No matter which exact boho style you want to go for, the most important thing is that you make it unequivocally yours. Have fun with it, and don't take it too seriously. After all, that's what the bohemian lifestyle is about.
