How to Design a Boho Chic Bedroom

by Patty Sehringer, L & L Realty Group 05/01/2022

If you’re looking for a design style to guide your next bedroom makeover, consider seeking inspiration from boho chic interiors. The boho chic style is fun, cozy and inviting—perfect for a bedroom. Besides, it’s easy to take the basic elements of the style and apply your own unique twist. Here are some things you’ll want in your boho bedroom:


A good rug is essential in every boho style room. You’ll find that a rug is one of the easiest ways to transform the look and feel of an entire space in a single step. No matter what type of floor you have in your bedroom, go for at least one large rug under your bed. Placing your rug at an angle will feel more casual and spontaneous while still being cozy. If you’re not sure what style of rug is best, opt for Persian or Moroccan style over-dyed rugs. Anything with good texture or pattern will make a bold statement and start your boho design off right.


Similarly to rugs, drapes and curtains are a must-have for a boho bedroom. Even if you don’t intend to use curtains, hanging them for the decorative appeal can make the room feel softer and enhance the boho vibe. This is another place where you can go bold with color and pattern or instead opt for airy neutrals like white and cream. Gauzy, sheer and flowing curtains are perfect for adding style while still keeping the design light and comfortable rather than overwhelming. If you’re looking for additional ways to style curtains, try using ornate tie-backs with tassels, pom-poms or beads.

Mismatched Furniture

If you have a matching bedroom set, there’s no reason you can’t still have a boho chic design. However, mismatched furniture adds a casual and eclectic feel. If you want to add some character to your furniture, add decorative accents and accessories like books, lanterns and even draped fabric. For the bed, you have options for achieving an excellent boho design. One is to go for a low platform bed, either with or without a headboard. A fun DIY option is to use painted wooden palettes as a platform for your mattress. Four-poster and canopy beds also make excellent choices for boho bedrooms because they provide even more opportunity to hang curtains, string lights and even trailing plants around your bed.


Plants are always nice to have in a bedroom for the touch of greenery and air-purifying qualities. However, they’re also a way to add instant boho style. The type of plants doesn’t matter, but the more you have, the better. Try arranging them on floating shelves or hanging them with oven macrame holders. Trailing vines and other dangling plants will look great hanging down bookcases, in windows or over your bed. If you don’t want to use real plants, artificial plants work just as well for aesthetic and don’t require any care other than occasional dusting.

These four tips will give you a head start in designing your own boho chic bedroom sanctuary. The best thing about boho chic as a style is that there are really no rules as long as you keep the elements casual, inviting and fun.
