Design a Dreamy Boho Bedroom
In contrast to the sleek lines and pared-down vibe of modernism, boho decor is all about laid-back, casual, comfy style. The bohemian chic look is an effortless blend of texture and materials that feels worldly and eclectic. It leans towards summers in Ibiza filled with hammocks, woven furniture, natural textiles and, of course, lots of plants. While that’s not always practical when you are away from the desert or the beach, our designers love creating an elevated version of boho in warm, earthy tones and layered textiles.
Since there are no rules for getting that bohemian bedroom, our designers like to start with the bed and build the space around it. Cozy, naturally dyed linens feel particularly appropriate in a bohemian oasis, then layer on pattern and texture in the rug, art, accessories and plants. Keep reading to see how we create a dreamy boho bedroom, with plenty of sophistication.
Start with Nestwell linens

Bed Bath & Beyond’s new exclusive line, Nestwell is an assortment of stylish, cozy and affordable bedding that rival competitors and are so wonderfully on-trend. Start with Egyptian cotton sheets in a soft, muted palette, add a textured blanket and top with a fluffy linen duvet. The perfectly rumpled texture of linen inspires serenity while giving off a luxe comfort vibe that’s ideal for lounging. Linen happens to be super durable and the style is timeless, making it a great choice for that fall-into-bed look. Relaxed and stylish? Our dream bedding.
Add some old-world charm

This stunning, vintage-inspired mirror is the perfect addition to your boho bedroom. It looks like something you picked up at a flea market in Paris, adding to that feeling of collected, worldly charm. We love it atop a desk or dresser, even leaning against the wall for a certain je ne sais quoi.
Layer on the textiles

The boho look is all about textures and layering a printed rug over a neutral one is a great way to do it. Anchor the look with a jute rug that’s durable and comfortable. Then add a Moroccan-inspired rug on top in a sophisticated color scheme to elevate the look. A throw blanket in warm desert tones draped casually across the foot of the bed adds to the more-is-more style.
Let there be light

The spherical ceramic base and linen shade make this lamp perfect for next to your bed. It’s a beautiful, unique shape that is minimal enough to fit with any aesthetic, but we think it’s just right for boho. It adds the right amount of visual interest without being trendy.
Dress up those walls

Here’s a solution for those pesky bare walls. This one-of-a-kind rustic wall hanging will bring a touch of untamed nature into your space. Hang it just off center over a dresser for an unexpected boho element. Or we love hanging a few of these beautiful woven pieces together for a more dramatic look.
Pile on the natural textures

Natural textures really take the boho look to the next level. Bring in natural fibers like jute, rattan and linen for great visual interest without a lot of effort. Add baskets for floor storage or work in a large woven pendant for soft overhead lighting. Leather is another classic boho material and we love adding a few leather poufs to the end of the bed instead of a traditional bench.
Bring in the plants

Move over, pampas grass. We are feeling the pretty blush tones and unique shape of these dried Banksia stems. Tuck them into a pretty vase for some added texture on your nightstand. A variety of plants in different shapes and sizes looks great clustered in a corner. Plants are the multi-hyphenates of the design world: beautiful natural color and texture, cleaner air and better sleep!
