Do you Want to Start Your Bohemian Bedroom Decor Renovation?
It is a perfect time to start your bohemian style bedroom decor project that you have been dreaming of for a long time.
So let’s do it together.
Making some design decisions by yourself can be tiring. I love to share my ideas, and sometimes I need approval.
These tiring decisions can discourage us from our dreams, but you don’t need to do it yourself.
Right now, I am stepping in as a designer to provide your convenience.
Let’s share duties and start your Boho Chic bedroom decor now!
I am going to show you;
- What’s your bedroom decor needs to become a Bohemian style
- Color choices for Bohemian bedroom decor
- Elements that help to change your bedroom to feel an instant Bohemian vibe
All you need to do is decide what you want to change (throw away) and your shopping list.
Let’s get started!
Before you start, whatever your interior renovation project is, you have two options.
- Are you keeping your furniture pieces?
- Or do you want to change it with new ones?
For both, I will make suggestions.
First things first;
Know Your Measurements
The common mistake people make when decorating their rooms is not taking any measurements.
All you want to do is take three necessary measurements of your room: the length, the width, and the height.
Knowing these is enough to compare the scales of other elements you are going to buy.
Measure them all and take notes; you will be needed when discussing Bohemian bedroom decor layouts.
5 Items you Need for Ultimate Bohemian Bedroom Decor
This part is the one you need to start building up your shopping list.
Here is what we are going to do;
I will introduce these 5 essential elements which create an instant Bohemian bedroom ambiance in your room; then, you will decide what you need to add to your shopping list.
Rugs will always be the largest design element in your room if you select the perfect size rug for your bedroom.
So, the impact will be as much as its size.
Choosing a bohemian style rug will be an excellent start to your bedroom decor renovation.
If you have one of these rugs:
- Made of Sisal
- Antique Persian Patterns
- Made of Wicker
- Geometric Prints
- Morrocan Style
Then you may not need to buy a new rug.
If you don’t have one, these are the options to add an instant Bohemian vibe to your bedroom.
Essential Tip to Decorate Rugs in Bohemian Style Decor
Layering is a key in Bohemian style interior decoration.
So, you can always cover your old carpet with a new one or even buy two new ones and layer them.
The basics of layering are to choose the most straightforward option and add a sophisticated one. For example, you can find a unique Morrocan rug and combine it with a neutral sisal rug.
Decide what you want. I trust your taste 🙂
Adding at least one piece of furniture that reflects the Bohemian style is essential. A single seating item is just enough for this task.
We aim to achieve an eclectic vibe in your bedroom by adding a piece of mismatched seating.
Look at your bedroom and decide what will be the craziest matchup;
- Hammock Chair
- Ethnic Wood Chair
- Morrocan Pouf
- Floor Cushion
- Leather Bean Bag Chair
3. Wall Art
Bohemian style wall art pieces are so iconic. For example, did you see beautiful hand-made macrame knots?
If you are here and want to change your bedroom decor to Bohemian style, you probably have seen it.
If you didn’t see then, follow up on Boho Chic Decor Style to see all Bohemian inspiration.
- Colorful Gallery Walls (Mix&Match)
- Ceramic dear head
- Wicker dish
Blank walls are not in the mood for Bohemian. So you better add some of these to your bedroom decor.

4. Decorate Your Bed
The bed is one of the few furniture pieces we can decorate in the bedroom. And it is really easy to decorate a perfect bed. First, you need a beautiful blanket, bedsheets, and some throw pillows.
Now is the perfect time to ditch your old headboard and hang a big tapestry instead. It will be refreshing for those who don’t want to change their bed and don’t want to go over their budget.
Bedsheets and Throw Blankets
Buying a new bedspread always makes me happy. I think this is a must if you want to refresh your bedroom decor.
We talked about layering in rugs; you can also confidently use it in your bedspreads. Do not throw away your old bedcovers; add some new ones.
Throw blankets are a great way to add colors, textures, and patterns to your bohemian bedroom decor.
To feel an authentic Bohemian ambiance, you should add many pillows to your shopping list.
Your bed decor should include 70% of the colors in your room.
Use patterns, colors, and textures in your pillows. It will create a cohesive room atmosphere with your bedcovers.
Don’t worry; I will show you how you can pick colors and use patterns in your bedroom.
If You Want to Buy a New Bed, Here are Bohemian Options
A simple, bright-colored wood-toned bed base, rattan headboard, bamboo, or canopy beds are made for Bohemian bedrooms.
5. Add Plants
Do you imagine a Bohemian interior without any plants? I hope everyone gives the same answer.
Plants are going to add quality to your bedroom air. If you don’t have space for plants, hanging plants are an excellent option.
Adding some artificial plants along with the real plants is also an option to create your bedroom indoor garden—most of us are not pros at taking care of plants.
Create a Color Palette for Your Bohemian Bedroom Decor
Bohemian style loves colors. All hues and shades are allowed in this style.
I created some colorful color palettes for your new Bohemian bedroom decor. You can confidently use these schemes if you want, or you can create one.
I already told you that; I will give suggestions to those who want to refresh their furniture or keep them.
Color choices are the part that has the most differences.
Here are the color palettes I designed for your Bohemian bedroom decor renovation;
If you are considering changing your bedroom furniture…
The first thing you have to decide is;
- Do you want bold, bright colors in your bedroom?
- Or, prefer subdued, nude hues.
Secondly, use both the color palettes I created, neutrals, and add what your color tone choice is.
Your new furniture pieces using a neutral color palette and wood tones together will be perfect.
Add colorful choices to your accents, like home accessories. Your pillows, rug, and bedsheets can involve all of these colors.
Don’t forget to add some patterns to your design. Patterns are a crucial part of the Bohemian interior design style.
You need to search for patterns in your color palette. If you do that, making it look out of taste is impossible.
For those who want to keep their furniture
I have a two-way solution for you;
- If your bedroom already has too much color going on;
You need to add essential bohemian decor elements (that I mentioned) with your existing colors, such as your bedspreads and pillows.
Another option is to use a neutral color palette.
The key is to add some patterns to your bedrooms. Don’t forget to use patterns; there are some tips to use a pattern like a pro.
2. If your bedroom has Neutral Colors;
It is time to add some color. Select one of the Bohemian color palettes I designed for you and use it.
I will not be tired of saying the key is using patterns.
Get your color palette guide below; it will be helpful.
Layout Ideas for Bohemian Bedrooms
Changing your room layout is the number one step to feeling the change throughout your room. It’s easy and efficient.
Honestly, looking at the same things all the time makes me feel bored. But changing my furniture pieces or buying some new stuff every time is not a possibility.
So, I change my room layout almost every year, which makes me feel like I am in a new room.
I suggest you do either because freshness will always raise motivation.
This is the last part of your Bohemian bedroom decor renovation. We are going to change your layout, and with some new elements, believe me, your bedroom will look like a Bohemian Magazine cover.
Large Bedroom Layout (at least 140 sqft/13sqm)
For your large-size Bohemian bedroom, this is the layout I designed with the color palette I gave you in nude shades.
Let’s look at it closer;
- There are two Moroccan Pouf in your bed ends. I love poufs because it’s so practical and easy to move. There is nothing more Bohemian than a cozy pouf or floor cushions. You can move it when you are doing your make-up and replace it quickly. It will help you to make space when you need it.
- The large sisal rug will help you add texture to your room, and it will look perfect whether you change your furniture or not.
- Rud dimensions should be; extend at least 2′ (61cm) from the edges (bottom 2/3 of bed), not be closer than 18″ (46cm) from the side of any of the walls.
- Adding plants is a must. However, if you don’t want to add too many plants to your room, placing a mirror behind your plant will reflect the greenery and make it look like a garden.
- Use colorful pillows; you can add patterns to your pillows. You should add patterns to your Boho designs.
Small Bedroom Layout (90 sqft/8.3 sqm)
Small bedrooms need to be designed more carefully because you need to utilize every little space.
Here is (above) a layout I designed for your small bohemian bedroom using the bright color palette I gave you.
Let’s look at it closer;
- Leaning your bed to a wall is a great way to open space in a small bedroom, and it is trendy in Bohemian style. For example, leaning your bed to a wall and adding some pillows or hanging a tapestry on your wall.
- Use pouf or floor cushions. They are so functional in any room, particularly small ones.
- Rug measurements should be; you can go as close as 8″ (21 cm) to a wall for small bedrooms. Then, you can either extend your rug or end it at the level of your mattress.
- Use a lot of texture in your bedroom decor; I use linen on bed pillows and velvet on bedcovers.
- Don’t forget to add some patterns.
- Add plants and in the small bedroom, use large mirrors behind the plant decor is a great way to reflect the greenery. If you don’t have enough space, hanging plants are an option.
