I have collected a range of natural earthy bedroom decor ideas for your furniture, wall décor, and much more to help you create your own slice of earthy goodness within your bedrooms! Take a look!
Earthy Bedroom Decor Ideas
Try A Forest Themed Wallpaper
For a truly immersive nature experience why not go for nature prints on your walls? They can change your bedroom to beautiful forest scenery plus, are a great backdrop for you to take plenty of pictures in your bedrooms.
You could opt for wallpapers with a more moody color palette if you’re looking to create a dark forest vibe in your space, or you could go for brighter color themes to generate a more colorful room.
Wallpapers usually work best as an accent wall feature but if the maximalist in you wants to cover all four walls, go ahead and listen to your heart!
Go For Green Creepers
Bring in the magic of the jungle into your rooms and hang your vines all over!
Indoor creepers like Heartleaf Philodendron, Pothos, Betel Leaf Plant, and the Swiss Cheese Plant grow very well within your bedrooms and add the perfect touch of green to your spaces.
All you need to do is place the right amount of support around your room to guide the plants to grow in that direction and your very own mini forest is ready!
Or Float The Pots!
If creepers all over your walls aren’t your chosen aesthetic, floating pots are the perfect natural earthy bedroom décor for your walls.
These tiny woven pots are easy to hang up for smaller-sized plants and look great on your painted walls. Plants are truly the best (and prettiest) way to use the color green in your bedrooms and when you’re going for an earthy aesthetic, these little pots really hit the spot!
Plants For Your Headboard!
If you have plenty of free space on your headboards, place small to mid-sized plants to add to your natural earthy bedroom décor. You can’t truly feel the earthiness of the aesthetic until you’re surrounded by plants, so don’t hesitate to place a pot (of any size) on all your free spaces that receive natural light.
For those with colored walls, opt for neutral or brown-toned ceramicware. And if you have neutral walls, go for the brightly colored plant holders that resonate with the color scheme you have in mind for your space.
Or How About Plant Wreaths?
Some of you might have a hard time forming long-time commitments with your natural earthy bedroom décor. If so, then this cute idea is for you!
Bringing in fresh wreaths woven from dry or even fresh plants is the perfect way to add earthy décor to your space without having to spend too much of your resources on regularly switching up the interiors. And who knows? Alternating with the size, arrangement, placement, and even the type of plant used can change the entire look of your room while giving you a cute new hobby to engage in!
Natural Earthy Furniture Ideas
Use Cane Furniture
Take the sustainable route and bring in cane furniture for your bedrooms. Cane furniture adds the perfect boho feel to your space while allowing you to embrace your earthy room aesthetic. And don’t hesitate to add cane beds, bedside benches, wall hangings, side tables, and pot holders to your nature-inspired space!
Using natural earthy bedroom décor can help your furniture stand out in your earthy tone bedroom – you also get bonus points for using natural materials!
Add Some Coziness With A Corner Chair!
A cozy corner is a must-have in the bedroom-a special spot for you to read, write, journal or to even bask in the natural light coming in through your windows while you enjoy a nice drink.
Bring in a comfy armchair in neutral tones to blend in perfectly with your earthy bedroom color schemes or if you want your chair to stand out, don’t hesitate to go for warm tones of orange and red for your choice of upholstery.
Surround your space with plants to plug into that earthy feel that you desire.
Rattan Headboards Can Nail It!
Rattan is a fibrous solid wood that is widely used for making furniture. And for those hesitant to go for entire beds made of cane but still want natural wood furniture, a rattan headboard is an ideal addition to your space.
Using rattan headboards can make your bed stand out as you have many options available to choose from in terms of the patterns used to make the final furniture piece.
natural Earthy Colors Ideas
Add A Splash Of Orange!
A perfect pop of the color orange in your warm earth-toned bedroom is ideal for brightening up the space. It’s a shade that is easy to use in interior spaces and goes well with the beige, greens, and browns of your earthy bedroom color scheme.
Drape a fuzzy orange blanket and add an orange accent pillow to your bed and it becomes the center of attention in your room!
Not To Forget Mauve!
If orange is too bright for your taste, some mauve in the bedroom is here for you!
This beautiful shade of purple is perfect for using on your beds to pair with the neutral shades present on your walls. Mauve beddings also look great on the cane and other natural wood furnishings – all that’s left is to bring in some gorgeous green plants to complete your natural earthy bedroom décor!
Brown Hues Are Must!
You can never go wrong with brown tones as they are super versatile and add the perfect earthy feel to your bedroom.
Brown is a color that can be used many times in a room, and it still wouldn’t feel like the color has an overwhelming presence.
Bedspreads, comforters, wall hangings, and floor rugs in various shades of brown are all you need to convert a white-walled bedroom into an earth-tone bedroom that is worthy of a cover page feature.
Natural Earthy Textiles Ideas
Use Rafia Fabric For Decorative Pillows
If you wish to have only earthy brown undertones within your space, this is a great fabric choice for your accent and decorative pillows.
Raffia is a type of textile that is woven from palm leaves and can be used for making pillow covers with cute tassels, and they are a perfect addition to your earthy bedroom ideas. They come in beautiful patterns and work well, especially for the earthy room aesthetic.
Go For Printed Throw Pillows
If your tastes in interior design are on the maximalist side, don’t hesitate to bring in loads of brightly colored pillows with nature-themed prints to really zhuzh up your place!
Accent pillows with animal prints, motifs of wild beasts, and extravagant leafy patterns are bound to be a feature that highlights the modern earthy home décor.
How About Some Hemp Fabric?
Hemp is a fabric that has really gained popularity over the last few years due to its durability. Bedspreads and pillow covers made of hemp come in plenty of neutral shades ideal for natural earthy bedroom décor that promotes groundedness, simplicity, and sustainability- the qualities of hemp.
Apart from the plain ones you can also find printed hemp fabric to add more textures and patterns to your space.
Winter is here and it’s time to bring out your favorite blankets – you could never go wrong with a chunky crochet throw for your bedroom.
Pair your blankets in colors that match the rest of the chosen color palette and your natural earthy bedroom décor (or maybe your winter wonderland?) is all set to keep you warm through the chilly days.
Natural Earthy Bedroom Lighting
Use The Hanging Lamps
Use of woven fabric doesn’t have to stop at your pillows and bedspreads, you could use them for light fixtures too!
Swap out the basic side table lamps for some hanging fixtures that drop down from the ceiling- a real oomph factor to add to your earthy bedroom.
You Can’t Skip The Natural Light!
Although adding earthy colors like this dusty pink in your bedroom can do more than half the job to complete your earthy space but we can’t afford to miss including one of the natural elements at our disposal! The natural light.
If you’re up to making architectural changes, make the windows larger and let them face the east to let maximum light come in. If not, open your windows and let whatever amount of sunlight in!
Earthy Architectural Elements in a bedroom
Add A Wooden Ceiling
Adding a wooden ceiling instead of the overly used POP false ceiling or plain flat ceilings can instantly transform your whole bedroom into a modern earthy style that will catch everyone’s attention.
This has honestly been one of my personal favorites and I hope you love it (and use it) just as much as I did when I first saw it.
You could also implement this into your existing ceilings if you’re looking to upgrade your bedrooms, but it’s definitely not a DIY job, so make sure to consult the right people for this!
Try A Raw Finish
Moving away from the greener parts of the planet Earth, we have the rocky gray surfaces that many love for their interior spaces due to the raw and unfinished aesthetic that it brings to a room. Concrete can be used to create rock-like facades for your bedroom walls, so you could start your day from your very own cave.
Gray always works well in bedrooms for those looking at minimalist designs with darker-toned color schemes. The rooms are also easy to accessorize and the use of cane, rattan, and raffia will go really well to bring your room together.

Expose A Brick Wall
I’m sure we’ve all seen exposed brick walls being used in modern-day interiors. Brick red walls go well with other earthy colors and open up plenty of options for adding natural earthy bedroom décor to your space.
These walls can be an accent feature or you could go ahead and use it all over but make sure to accessorize accordingly and select your other colors for the bedroom keeping in mind that the brick red color will be the main highlight.
Add a mural wall with a moody forest theme as an accent wall to your bedroom. Pair it with neutral-themed bedspreads and add in a few pops of blue and gray to finish up and your room is ready for you to create new experiences in!
