How To Create A Dreamy Boho Bedroom
1. WHAT IS BOHO STYLE?
With its roots firmly in Eastern European Bohemia, boho has been reinterpreted again and again. After experiencing a massive resurgence in the 60s and 70s, followed by some downtime during the 80s and 90s, boho has made a spectacular comeback recently. And it looks like this time, boho is here to stay. Covering everything from the California cool vibe that is all over Instagram right now with its laid-back beachy nod to boho, to the ‘more is more’ approach we’ve come to expect from the artists and bon vivants who display all the treasures they have collected on their travels, to the modern, gypsy approach with its Moroccan influences, boho is a style anyone can introduce to their interiors. In bedrooms, boho tends to be less busy and presents as a more pared back incarnation of the style. Read on and see how it’s done.
2. QUILTY PLEASURES
When it comes to creating a relaxing bedroom, muted tones are more soothing. The best way to start a blissful, boho bedroom is with neutral bedding and quilts. This gives you the freedom to add colour through layering bright cushions and throws to add a pop of colour that will bring your room to life. And there’s more good news; when you go boho you can never have too many throws or cushions.
3. DON'T FORGET THE BED END
It’s not just up to textiles to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to creating those all-important layers. Adding statement pieces such as a chair or bench seat not only gives you somewhere else to relax, it gives your space character and depth.
4. CURATE YOUR TREASURES
5. OPTIONS, OPTIONS
If you are not quite ready to dive headfirst into a boho bedroom, you can transform the feel and look of your room easily with small changes. If your bed does not have a headboard, you could add hang a tapestry to create visual interest. A selection of decorative mirrors is another option to create a gentle incarnation of the ‘more is more’ feel boho is so well known for, all while keeping it looking collected, yet effortless.
6. AND OF COURSE, A BED
Wooden furnishings are non-negotiable when thinking boho and your bed is a great opportunity to introduce some of those essential raw materials. Rope and rattan headboards fit right into a lush boho bedroom. Whether you choose a bed with a wild organic form or something grand, it’s up to you and that’s the beauty of boho. Sweet Dreams.
