Layers of white, lots of texture, there’s something quite dreamlike about boho chic decor in the bedroom. It can’t help but make you feel safe, cocooned, and like you’re sleeping on Cloud 9. Since the sixties and seventies, the boho home decor style has gone from strength to strength. But, heavy on colour, it could feel a little overwhelming in your sleep space. That’s why if you’re a lover of all things boho, we’d recommend a soothing, neutral boho chic look in the bedroom.

Read on to discover 8 failsafe ways to create a Pinterest-worthy boho chic bedroom.

Boho chic bedroom idea: neutral colour scheme

Getting your colour scheme right is key to getting that boho chic look on point. It’s subtle and understated—think oaty whites and warm beiges, like White 05 and Beige 01. Take a look at our guide to understanding different neutral colour palettes if you’re not sure which shade would work in your bedroom. They’re great for adding a touch of warmth and brightness to any space. If your bedroom is on the darker side, find out which are the best neutral paint colours for a dark north facing room.

One way to add texture to a neutral colour scheme is with nature-inspired wallpaper, like Fern 01. We wouldn’t recommend you wallpaper the entire wall, as this might become overpowering in a boho chic bedroom. Just a feature wall behind your bed, to create a dreamy, botanical feel.

Boho chic bedroom idea: macramé or wall tapestries

Rather than hanging art on your walls, what about hanging macramé or wall tapestries? In fact, why limit yourself to tapestries? Get experimental by hanging woven baskets, from large to small, in a scattered formation, as a statement gallery wall idea. Whether its baskets, macramé or a hand-woven boho chic wall tapestry, these artisanal handicrafts add softness and tactility to a hard surface: your wall.

Boho chic bedroom idea: light and airy linen curtains

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, the boho chic bedroom is all about creating a soft, dreamlike space. And what could be more dreamlike than light and airy lined curtains? You know the ones, they gently billow as a Balearic breeze drifts through open shutters. Back to Britain, and whilst we might be short on balmy breezes, you can still get the look with a pair of white or natural coloured lined curtains—and don’t shy away from tassel or pom-pom trims. To complete the look, go for a tab curtain fitting, with a rustic wood curtain pole.
