Scroll through Instagram and you'll find no shortage of boho bedroom ideas—over 188,000 of them. And there's a good reason boho decor style is so popular. Cosy and nostalgic with vintage elements, it's all about creating a welcoming feel by layering different fabrics and textures with colour and natural materials.

Boho decor is meant to be fun. It's whimsical and a little romantic—that's why we think it's perfect in the bedroom. Take a look at our 6 boho bedroom ideas to get your inspiration for your very own boho redecoration.

Boho bedroom decor idea: bohemian paint colours

Bohemian-inspired colours are often bold and bright - channelling the carefree spirit of the 60s and 70s. Vibrant reds and oranges are some retro-inspired colours that will help you channel the much-loved 70s interior design aesthetic. However, if you're planning on painting your bedroom, we'd recommend painting your walls in neutrals, like White 02 or White 05. Or why not opt for our nurturing Pink 02, or our grounding beiges - Beige 02 and Beige 05.

According to colour psychology, vibrant reds, rich blues, and oranges can sometimes be over-stimulating in the bedroom, so perhaps try using these as paint colours in a boho-inspired living room, or introducing them through the accent colours of carpets, cushions and throws in your bedroom. Or, if you want to make a statement in your bedroom, why not create a colourful wall mural or do a half-painted wall.

Boho bedroom decor idea: macramé

It may have origins in the 13th century, but right now, the internet is going mad for macramé. You can use it to hang potted plants, as wall art, for cushion covers or for a bit of fun, a hanging chair or hammock. Whichever way you incorporate it, macramé is a look and an ideal way to act depth and texture in a bedroom, especially if you're going for a neutral bedroom design.

Boho bedroom decor idea: wood and rattan

Bring that tree-hugging energy by using natural materials like wood and rattan. A rattan headboard never fails to catch the eye, or, you could carve out a reading nook with a '70s style peacock throne piled high with cushions. Teak wood is another great way to incorporate boho decor into your bedroom with a Balinese-style headboard. As always, boho decor is a nod towards life on the road, so try to look out for exotic shapes and designs.
