4 Creative Ways to Decorate Your Boho Bedroom

Share this article:

When you think about the boho decorating style, you’re most likely to imagine a room full of flowery and colorful patterns with lots of pillows and dozens of blankets – and you wouldn’t be wrong.

Because there are no rules when it comes to bohemian décor, you can get as creative as you want. For instance, you could choose a neutral palette or a mix of all colors possible and it could still be considered boho.

Nonetheless, to help you get started, we put together some tips that might come in handy. All you have to do is get excited and start creating.

1. Explore the flea market

A place of hidden treasures, the flea market should be your first stop. Pack some patience and energy and get ready to hunt down the most original and antique pieces you can find. From wall décor to furniture, there’s something for everyone. And remember, the more colors you incorporate, the better your boho bedroom will look.

Vintage drawings, photos or paintings are also great for decorating and, fortunately, there’s no shortage of these at a flea market, so go ahead and start digging through the piles.

2. Incorporate plants and flower patterns

Luscious and colorful plants have a way of making any room cozier, so fill your bedroom with them Then, once you fill the room with as much green as you can, it’s time to add more color. Throw some flowery rugs on the floor and lovely quilts on the bed – as many as you can. In fact, you can never have too many quilts and cushions in boho design, so select the ones that best brighten up the room.

3. Focus on coziness

Granted, the bed is the central piece of the bedroom and your design should focus on it. But, because it’s boho décor we’re talking about, you don’t need a fancy and overly modern bed. Keep it simple and comfy. All you really need is a bed that’s low to the ground or even just a mattress. Especially if it’s a comfortable one, just place it on the floor and this should do just the trick.

Meanwhile, throw pillows are perfect in any room, so choose colorful ones and add them to the layers of quilts you already have on the bed. As for furniture, add a bench seat or a chair to the room. This will add depth and character, as well as provide more places to relax in.

However, just be careful about clutter. The temptation to fill the room with all kinds of colorful things will be strong, but try to limit yourself only to pieces that add aesthetic value to the room. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have books or candles around – just don’t overdo it.

4. Let some light in

Regardless of whether the space has plenty of natural light, twinkle lights are essential for any boho bedroom. Hang them on a mirror, the walls or the bedframe to nail that bohemian feel.

Similarly, if you plan on using curtains, opt for a single color. Earthy tones are often preferable as the rest of the bedroom will already be abundant in all kinds of patterns and colors.

All that’s left is to relax and enjoy your new boho bedroom. Make some tea, put on some nice music, and submerge yourself in this oasis of peace and comfort.
