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!
5. Macrame all the things.
No, seriously. All the things. You can find tutorials out there for everything from macrame lampshades to macrame room dividers. Macrame has had a modern resurgence, and there are some truly beautiful ways to incorporate this feature into your room. It’s possible to overwhelm your space, though, so in order to avoid turning your oasis into a kitschy 70’s nightmare, stick to one medium or large macrame item, or several small ones. For instance, a macrame curtain in front of your closet is great, but probably don’t add a macrame hanging chair and a macrame headboard as well.

6. Flower power.
Incorporating florals and greenery into the space is key. There are a ton of ways to add florals – from monograms to chandeliers – but if you prefer staying low-key in this area, adding potted plants is all you really need. Even a few hanging glass succulents or air plants can go a long way.

7. Other natural elements.
Nature is a big deal in bohemian style. Add wooden texture wherever possible – from furniture to accents. Raw or cut wood is great, but rustic elements like driftwood, branches, antlers, fur, botanical prints, etc. will really seal the deal.

8. Wood tones mixed with color.
Think color-blocking, but in an easy, natural way. Perhaps paint the legs on your wooden dresser and leave the rest rustic. Or add a vibrant, furry cushion on top of a low, raw-edge table. Again, this combination of all different textures, finishes, and colors is what boho is all about.
