Few aesthetics embody the best parts of hygge—everyone’s favorite trendy way to get cozy—than bohemian decor. The breezy, maximalist aesthetic gives us all an excuse to make the most of color, to get creative when combining printed textiles and to stock up on all kinds of lovely trinkets that do little else than make us happy. The bohemian decor movement is a beautiful thing, both aesthetically and conceptually, and its daughter, the bohemian bedroom decor movement, is largely the same.

The only issue? Crafting the perfect bohemian interior is a never-ending challenge. Minimalism forces you to pare down, leaving questions like “what should I own?” and “where should my stuff go?” easy to answer; they’re matters of rationality and practicality—there are right ways to decorate. But maximalism invites you to get lost in aesthetic fantasy. You’re rewarded for buying a shit-ton of throw pillows, for covering your walls with colorful art. But it’s not as simple as loading up on interesting wares. You have to load up on interesting wares that complement each other.

They key to bohemian bedroom decor—or any kind of bohemian decor, really—is to leave your space looking beautifully curated, without allowing it to feel effortful. The bohemian spirit is a breezy one—it summons visions of days spent at the beach, lives spent focused on travel. These are lighthearted, creative endeavors, not meticulously assembled ones. To make your home look full of effort would be to ruin the aesthetic you set out to craft in the first place. And unless you’re an aesthetic savant, this is a hard balance to strike.

None of this is to suggest that you should abandon all hope of crafting the bohemian bedroom of your wildest dreams—far from it. But it is to suggest that perhaps the best first step you can take is to stock up on bohemian bedroom decor inspiration—to see what other aesthetically-minded individuals have created, and to see what elements you’re interested in borrowing from each. A little visual research should go a long way in helping you understand what you want from your bohemian bedroom, and it’ll fill you with ideas for how to get there. Godspeed, my friend. The space you’ve been fantasizing about awaits.

Layering rugs is a surefire way to leave your space feeling bohemian—without breaking the bank. (Smaller rugs are often a fraction of the price of larger ones.)

Stock up on a couple plants and a few printed blankets, and you’ll be in business in no time.

Because your bohemian palette doesn’t have to be loud.

A maximalist approach to decor, rendered in a minimalist palette—options are abundant, my friends.

We can imagine nothing more badass that crafting a headboard from straight-up cacti.

Consider this your excuse to indulge your throw pillow obsession.

Is there any scenario in which making a DIY bed canopy isn’t a good idea?

The trendiest take on camping we’ve ever seen.

Minimalist without feeling sparse, this bedroom is full of bohemian bedroom decor inspiration the not-so-maximalist bohemian will love.

When in doubt, load up on plants.

Because print isn’t the only way to play with layered decor. (A little textures goes a long way, y’all.)

No room for Drama ✨

Anything fringy or woven is probably on the aesthetic menu.

In case you’d prefer a canopy crafted from greenery to one crafted from linen.

An aesthetic so carefully curated that even the cat matches.

Don’t shy away from antique pieces. They can add a dose of much-needed texture and personality to an otherwise contemporary space.

Because when your windows are lined with plants, not even solid-white blankets can keep your room from feeling bohemian.

I mean, why not stock up on candles that coordinate with the rest of your aesthetic?

Yet another reminder that your palette isn’t the only way to leave things feeling layered.

We have no idea where you’d obtain the heardboard/roof combination pictured here, but we do know it’s incredible.

Got a favorite color? Stock up on wares within the shade. (Quite possibly the most straightforward way to tackle maximalist decor.)

Pretty hard to go wrong when you’re displaying straight-up guitars on your wall.

A greenery-surrounded bed will leave your room feeling like an absolute oasis.

Never underestimate the power of a painted wall.

No room for a nightstand? A couple plant-lined stools should do the trick.

This feels more industrial bohemian than traditional bohemian, but hey—find the aesthetic that sparks joy for you.

It’s pretty much impossible to go wrong with a statement rug.

The mix of antique and modern decor leaves this room feeling equal parts bohemian and avant-garde.

Who said you had to use those woven trays horizontally?

With walls like that, you could do just about anything and still leave your space feeling dreamy AF.

For the white bedding fiend who still hopes to craft a bohemian aesthetic.

Layered headboards—and woven lampshades—are officially decor options worth considering. (And peep those fringe blankets, too!)

Proof that when you’re having fun with texture, the colors you use—or lack thereof—hardly make a difference.

Challenge yourself to buy all the colorful things that catch your eye—and then to make them look good together.

Simple and bohemian are far from mutually exclusive. (And that hanging woven curtain is an easy way to section off space in a smaller room.)

From the layered rugs to the layered curtains, it’s clear this designer knew what they were doing.

Remember to stock up on tons of fun art, too.

Who knew three different mirrors could look so great when combined? (Have a creativity field day, folks.)

Nothing says bohemian like an oceanfront view—and some fringe-covered bedding.

A plant-lined headboard is an out-of-the-box way to get your green thumb on.

Let’s be real—it’s pretty hard to beat a bed suspended in mid-air.

A wood-lined ceiling, plant-lined canopy and statement rug-lined floor is a pretty unstoppable combination as far as bohemian decor goes.

We’re as enamored with the wooden bed-foot stool as we are with the delightfully mixed and matched throws.

Few palettes feel as distinctly earthy as brown and forest green.

Proof evergreen plants have a place in the bohemian decor sphere, too.

Is it just us, or is that chartreuse picture frame absolutely stealing the show?

What boho dreams are made of 🌿🌞🌵

Plants will keep any exposed brick-lined space feeling as organic as it does industrial.

If this photo has convinced us of anything, it’s that light-washed wood plays incredibly well with white textiles.

Don’t sleep on colorful furniture—it can serves as the accent piece (or pieces) your space is yearning for.

Normally dark walls and a dark floor would leave a space feeling smaller, but when your bed is this cozily layered, they only leave the space feeling snugglier.

If there were ever a time to experiment with headboards, it’s now.

Prints, prints and more prints.

There’s all kinds of beautiful stuff happening in this space.

A sleek, contemporary take on classic bohemian coziness.

Remember, tapestries are your friend.

A pared-down palette can leave your tight space feeling just cozy enough.

May your pillows complement your art, and your art complement your pillows.

The perfect blend of texture, color and greenery, this space feels bohemian without skewing overdone.
