Bohemian Style 101: The Bedroom
If you've ever wanted to have a boho chic bedroom, now is the time! Inspired by the gypsy culture, boho chic decor is care-free, expressive, and lively. To achieve a boho-chic bedroom, find boho-chic bedding with patterns and textures! Next, add a colorful rug with geometric shapes or other whimsical designs. Don't have to worry about how to match bedroom colors- just be sure to have neutral colors that act as transitions into the new color or pattern introduced. Finally, add some boho chic decor, like plants, dream catchers, string lights, or wicker furniture!
Boho Rugs: The Best Decor
The best way to achieve a boho-chic style in any room is through a rug! Not only does a boho rug add color and comfort, but it also adds functionality true to space. Hippies are known to be one with nature and adding a rug to space creates a cozy gathering place for everyone! Choose a bold colored rug, a geometric rug, a shag rug, or even a distressed vintage rug to top off your space! For a boho-chic bedroom rug, we recommend smaller rug sizes ranging from 3' x 5' to 7' x 10' so that all bedroom furniture is off of the rug!
