As popular as the all-white, Scandi minimalist room movement is, there’s still a large percentage of people who don’t quite resonate with the look. Sure, you can appreciate all styles, but perhaps hygge isn’t your cup of tea. If lots of color, tons of texture, and cozy accents set your heart aflutter, boho style may be the one for you. 

One of the best rooms to start your decoration efforts is your bedroom. Since you spend time in it every day, it’s worth decking it out with furniture, accents, and objects that you’ll be able to appreciate, whether that’s a patchwork couch, shag rug, or wall-mounted baskets. Since there’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to designing with a bohemian mindset, you can presumably find a look that fits your personality and living style to a T. Browse through this collection of boho bedroom ideas and prepare to have decorating inspiration for life.

1. Dark and moody

Deep and dark tones, like the ones found in this Colorado home, aren’t always necessarily associated with a bohemian style. But as seen here, even the moodiest of color palettes can radiate a classically boho tune.
