DIY Boho Bedroom Inspiration
In this post:
Boho style has become a major player when it comes to interior design, and it’s a great trend to jump onboard for summertime. Going boho means embracing an airy, breezy vibe full of lightness and color – perfect for this time of year. If wanderlust, adventure and dreaming big are regulars in your vocabulary, it’s time to bring that boho spirit into your bedroom decor! Not sure where to start? We’ve broken boho style down into 10 key design elements, with DIY projects for each one. Now you can DIY the boho bedroom of your dreams!
1. Texture… so much texture!
The most important element of boho design is layering texture upon texture. You want your room to look soft, welcoming and dreamy. You can incorporate this in many ways – but textiles are crucial. You’ll want blankets, throws, pillows (you can never have too many pillows), curtains, more curtains, and rugs. The more varied the fabrics and tactile experience the better.

2. Yarn, string and twine.
The boho look is full of pom poms, tassels, cozy wrapped decor items, and other yarn goodies. String art and yarn wall hangings are a great way to bring this idea into your room, but you can also use jute or rope to hang shelves, wrap vases and more. Don’t underestimate the power of adding giant pom poms to your blankets, or tassels to your lamp shades. Yarn or rope are great textile mediums that will bring even more texture into your space.

3. A vivid, varied color palette.
One huge marker of bohemian style is the amazing color pallet usually associated with the look. Deep jewel tones in all different shades are common – and you don’t have to pick just one or two favorites. With boho, more color offers a rich, luxurious look. If you prefer a more subtle approach, opt for white in all your major players (walls, furniture, bedspread) and add pops of color through artwork and accents.

4. Mixing up the colors and patterns.
Instead of finding one main focal piece in a bright color or pattern, mix your patterns and colors in an almost whimsical display. Opt for prints like shibori, ikat, damask, batik, or anything with a moroccan or tribal feel. Use different types of fabrics – from heavy-weight upholstery to silk to fur. Counter all the color and patterns with a low-key white bedspread.
