Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to style. The modern, minimalist design may seem boring to some, while others may find unconventional, eclectic design too overwhelming. These days the word boho is used to define anything unorthodox or eclectic. Basically, boho is the shorthand for the French word bohemian. There was a group of people called gypsies who led an eclectic and unorthodox way of life. They arrived from the region of Bohemia.
The word later is for anyone who leads a lifestyle of a nomad. To them, art and creativity was more important than materialistic goals. Bohemian style was introduced by the artists during the 19th century in France. By taking inspiration from various cultures and other unconventional ideas, they developed this art style.
Boho chic is a type of fashion style that took inspiration from bohemian and hippie sources. It started to get popular during the mid-19th century. The modern boho chic design mainly focuses on ethnic and vintage elements from various cultures. An ideal boho chic home décor is a combination bold colors and textures, unconventional design, eclectic mix of various accessories and most importantly your imagination.

What Do You Need in a Boho Chic Bedroom
Before discussing those awesome boho chic style bedrooms, you need to keep in mind about these things in order to create the perfect boho bedroom.
Boho style doesn’t have any cut and dry rules. You can basically use any color you want to paint your walls. But, we would suggest to use white or white with a bit warm undertone as it contrasts well with wooden materials and other accessories with bright and rich colors. But, if you’re not into white walls, you can try accent wall with sapphire or emerald color tones or even removable wall papers.
Wood and rattan made bedroom are ideal for boho décor. Try to go for natural looking shapes like curved wood and light-colored wood frames. It will be golden if you can find antique/vintage brass bedframes. It goes so well with the boho bedroom aesthetic. You will probably see low profile beds in some bedrooms, it’s not uncommon.
Bedding and Pillows
Boho bedding should have a ruffed, undone look. You can get that look by just using a simple duvet cover. Since linen duvet will easily wrinkle, it is a very good choice. Tasseled bedding has a boho vibe to it, which is why it is often used in boho bedrooms. Use large sized beddings so that it spills over the edges of the bed. It gives off a cozier and inviting look.
You can throw in a lot of big, soft and comfy pillows in your bed. The best pillows can match the duvets but try to get accent colored ones for the throw pillows.
Boho bedrooms are never complete without a rug. Persian and Moroccan rugs are the best to give the boho look. You can stop right here but layering your rugs will add another dimension to the boho bedroom décor.
