Dreamy Bohemian Bedrooms: How To Get The Look

What better place to drift off to sleep than in a
 dreamy, Bohemian bedroom?

Take a look at these ethereal bedroom spaces 

and I think you'll agree that: 

Everyone needs a stress free zone!

These boho bunks are so cosy. Here, the stained glass windows, exotic rug, candles and books tie the Boho look together.

This is Bohemian gypsy to the extreme. The ornate linens, lace, fringe, wrought iron bed and vintage wallpaper all combine together to create this ultra feminine look.

A warm, golden glow is always inviting, as are the lush linens in rich, vibrant hues.

I love the unexpected combination of raspberry with shades of green. The use of color is often a main element of a Bohemian style interior.

I feel relaxed and lighter just looking at this! Although this room is nearly void of color, the Bohemian elements are still strong: the lace and croched materials, fringe, natural light, and beaded pendant lamp create the look.

Lush velvet bedding and oriental rugs along with mismatched vintage furniture create the look.

Exotic rugs used not only on the floor but on the wall, along with the houseplants, create texture and add interest.

Love the mossy green velvet.

Here, shades of teal give this room an almost royal feel. The pillows and the cat perfect the look!

What a cozy place to read! The gallery walls of vintage images and shelves of books, along with the vintage wallpaper and assorted embroidered pillows, are perfect. 

Like the look? 
Here's how to get it. 
Try adding these elements to your decor:
Color, Pattern, and Interest

Don't be afraid of color! Try adding jewel tones of dark raspberry, green, and purple

Add a sheer curtain stitched from old linens, scarves, or lace

Use a variety of colorful pillows, like these embroidered ones

Use real or faux stained glass to add color, pattern and interest

Add a beaded curtain. You can make one yourself with some thin wire and inexpensive beads from the craft store.

Create a cozy glow with unusual, warm lighting

Add bright bedding. Luxurious materials like silk and velvet can be added in small ways, such as by adding pillows.

Craft a beaded lamp. DIY from Cathiefilian

Add bejeweled accents, like these crystal necklaces used as curtain tiebacks 

What do you think?

I hope you have a great week

  1. I love all these rooms! The third bedroom you showed, though, I would go in there and sleep the best sleep of my life. Wonderful! :)

  2. This is all so delicious! Superimposed textures, colorful riches...
    I kept going back to the one with all the books.

  3. oh my! several of these are just beautiful.

    1. They are. I just love the combinations of lush fabrics and ambient lighting.

  5. My name is Raven and I am in LOVE with the bedding in the picture third from the top
    Do you happen to know where it came from?

  6. OMG!!! so many beautiful rooms!! I want all of them :)

  7. My bedroom is a combo of ALL of these...from the rich gold wall color to the luxurious bed clothes to even the large urn with the peacock feathers !! So glad to know I got it right ! I even have Moroccan candles hanging from chains against the wall behind my wrought iron headboard ! SCORE ! ;o)

    1. Awesome! Would love to see it! Glad you liked the post.

  8. Thank you! There are so many ideas and inspiration for modern, shabby-chic, country, etc.... which never really feel like me- but when I saw these pictures I immediately felt at home. So lovely!

    1. Happy that you enjoyed the post! Bohemian rules!

  9. Wow! Thanks for the great ideas! I can totally agree with Christine Avila. This style is so out-there, so classical and so lovely! Cannot wait to try it for myself!

  10. These are great rooms- thanks for the tips on creating them for ourselves. Very inspiring!

  11. What I fell in love with is the Bohemian gypsy look,(photo of bedroom #2. I would love to have that exact look.
    You have showed us how a room can changed into something completely different.
    Is there a particluar book that this design is from?
    Thank you

  12. Several of these rooms are to die for! Seriously :)
    And although I already had a few ideas, my creative juices are flowing!

  13. Great collection of pics. I see lots of inspiration for my daughter's room--thankfully changing from 70's punk revival to Gypsy boho chic. Thanks

  14. These were just STUNNING! I am so inspired, thanks for posting

  15. Love this post!! Do you have the source of the beaded curtain picture? I'd love to see a DIY on that!

  16. Great ideas!!! I especially love the sheer curtains!!!

  17. The bedroom with exotic rugs on the walls are my aunts bedroom, their whole apprtment looks like that. It's amazing!

    1. Do you know how your aunt hung the rugs? I would love that too!

  18. Wow. I don't know where to start. I came because I want to do a project with glass beads for a flat window hanging and/or tinkly wind chime, so, of course i love the beaded curtain, but I also LOVE the ornate chandelier and the beaded shade. Ooooh, and some of those linens were gorgeous. I'm way more bohemian than I think, apparently. Thanks for the enjoyment and inspiration!!!!! (I needed it!)
