If minimalism is not for you, the bohemian aesthetic is here to save the day! The bohemian style is one of the most popular interior design trends of the 20th and 21st centuries that is making its way into homes more than ever now.
Bohemian style was first started in parts of Europe by people who valued creativity more than luxury which inadvertently became an interior design style that embraces maximalism!
Although modern and minimal interior design styles have their own charm, the bohemian interior style stands apart owing to its lack of structure which is achieved using a lot of colors, patterns, and layers of fabric curated to your style (mediocrity is out of the picture.)
You can be as free-spirited with your boho design as you want to be. Prioritize your connection to your bedroom more than just decorating it, and don’t confine your idea of aesthetics!!
That said, below are a few cozy boho bedroom ideas that are all out of the box! Take a look.
A Modern & Cozy Boho Bedroom
You will find the modern boho style used repeatedly because of the elegance and sophistication that comes with it! If you’re not all that into the bohemian vibe but still want the core elements – it is perfect for you. Classy and simple.
Make sure you use beige accents or solid colors and keep it monotone to make your space look decluttered. You may also add pops of colors or choose subtle botanical prints for your bedroom walls, just in case it looks bland!
Minimalist Boho Bedroom
It’s all about keeping it simple.
Consider adding simple lines or add geometry to your space. Prioritize using textures in your bedroom over patterns. It’s all about making your bedroom feel cozy and still keeping from adding too much of anything! Yes, that’s achievable!
Try A Cozy Boho Chic Bedroom
For a boho-chic room, get creative! Play with your color schemes, get a few indoor plants in, or some botanical prints for your décor.
For contrast, add bright elements. Play around with shapes and sizes and don’t stop!
Go For A Retro Vibe
The retro boho style comes straight out of the 60s and 70s hippie-chic aesthetic! Just the classics.
To pull this look right out of this picture, throw in some warm and earthy colors, use patterns like ikat and paisley, and go for embroidered fabrics, crochet decors, macramé art, and some faux leather! (Thank me later!)
Add Some Mystery
The darker side of boho embraces colors like black, gray, green, and shades of brown, just like this cozy boho bedroom with a black accent wall.
Although this one might not seem like the conventional type of bohemian room design you see, it is very unique and has great character. The perfect choice for lovers of dark colors!
Add Some Jewel Tones!
Jewel tones are currently popular in various design trends. They include all shades, like purple, green, and yellow, that can be detailed with brass inlays for perfecting the jewel look!
To complete your cozy boho bedroom look with jewel colors, layering is as important. So, pick your fabrics and patterns that are vintage, floral, ikat, or animal prints! They are awesome!
A Small Boho Room
For a smaller space, using a lot of décors would just make your small boho room look messy.
Use minimal furniture pieces that give off a cozy vibe, to organize your space better! They can range from wood to chenille, or chubby throws and quilts.
And so you can’t go wrong, it’s always best to use bright colors in a small space so it doesn’t look as small as it is!
Try A Shabby Chic!
The shabby chic boho bedroom is all about creating a very informal and cozy flair in your bedroom.
Throw some throws and pillows, use some colors that you love, use cozy and textured fabrics, add plants and prints. Do all that you wish to make your space your haven. That’s shabby. That’s chic.
Don’t Limit The Colors, Please!
If you don’t believe in less is more, and you want to experiment with colors and create different contrasts, get creative with this style!
Layer the colors and patterns you like while creating a sense of harmony by keeping the bohemian theme going! Don’t shy away from making your space as ornamented as it can get! Get wall art or paint your own canvas! Make your room colorful and let the kid within, be alive again!
If you like a certain level of ruggedness to your interiors which embraces the countryside aesthetic, a rustic cozy boho bedroom may be the best choice for you!
Use natural materials in your bedroom like wood and stone. Bring a few plants in, try earthy tones, use rustic furniture and throw some macrame and pampas grass to not let the boho flavor slip!

A pink room with a boho theme looks stunning! You could add different tints and shades of pink to your bedding, wall art, furnishings and fabrics. Make the room a monochrome pink and thank me later, girls!

Now Try Gray
If you want to look for something in between light and dark colors, gray is perfect! It’s unique and modern and will help set your room apart from the basic boho design styles that you can commonly find.
Create one by picking gray bedding, cushions, or gray bedspreads. Also, choose different shades of gray to define the depths in your all-gray bedroom.
How About The Scandi-Boho Space?
This is a great combination of Scandinavian and bohemian, aka Scandi-Boho, currently one of the most sought-after interior design styles.
The mix of the two is for those who hate maximalism but love boho! Follow the below tips and buy me a coffee later:

Industrial style is known to feel more raw and unfinished with its most important feature – the exposed concrete walls.

You can choose the primary color of your bedroom to be in any shade of blue and play around with colors that match or complement your beach-themed room. Highlight your walls and add some wall art to define them better!
A Moroccan Boho Bedroom Is It!
Morocco is famous for its tiles, in the “ogee shape” which has a curved shape with a concave arc and vertical elements. These tiles can really bring out the Moroccan boho flair in your bedroom.
Bring as much nature as you can into your Morrocan boho room! Use hand-carved upholstery with intricate details and add nice plush cushions to your bedding. Let the rich culture reflect in your space.
Don’t Forget The Fairy Lights
Here’s a fun fact, fairy lights gained popularity way earlier than you think they did! They were first used widely during the 1880s and 90s!
Using fairy lights adds warmth to your space, making it cozy and giving a very Christmassy feel to a room! Coziness is all there is to boho. So, don’t forget the fairy lights, please!
Use fairy lights in a small bedroom. They add structure to it.
White And Bright
This is the simplest of them all! It’s very cost-effective as there is not much to seek, and the decor can also be easily bought. Go for the all-white boho-themed room if you’re looking to have a budget-friendly bedroom makeover.
Just add some bohemian decor elements like soft rugs, woven artwork, bohemian low-lying bed frames, and a chandelier too! if you fancy things like that.
Neutral Tones Nail It!
Going for neutral tones is a great style if you’re not looking for anything too flashy or colorful for your taste, and if you love minimal colors.
Having clean lines to define your space is a must! You can soften your boho bedroom with some warm colors like beige and brown or try your hand at pastels (if that doesn’t offend your style!)
A Country-Themed Room
Pretty self-explanatory, right? Get the country look by picking two primary colors for this style – green and brown in any shade.
With a hint of contrasting colors, you can make something that fascinates you! Get indoor plants, choose unique planters, use warm throws, cute little baskets, and cane furniture and you’re good to go!
Bring The Warm Sunset In!
Yellow is known to make you feel happy and energetic. I cannot think of a better way to use yellow anywhere else but in your bedroom! Feel merry and optimistic with this style by simply using elements with yellow accents.
Add plants, mirrors, and wall art with some quintessential bohemian accessories. And try to get your hands on the trending sunset lamps, to live the perfect Instagram aesthetic!
Pastels are the perfect “in-betweens.” Not too colorful, not too monotonous. They just feel like the right amount of color.
Pastels are also very soothing to look at. If you want everything boho except the vibrant colors, go for popular pastels like sage green, tufty blue, mauve, light purple, baby pink, or mustard yellow.
Choose The Hippie Style!
This is an ode to the hippies who made bohemian a style!
Try the classic hippie bohemian look by using bright hues of red, yellow, navy blue, and a splash of orange! Make sure you have all the necessary boho decor to make your room feel like you are taken back in time to the 60s!
