If you’re the proud parent of girls, then you know they have a lot of opinions, especially when it comes to designing the ultimate personal space, also known as their bedroom. So you wouldn’t be alone if you’re stumped about how to pull together a kid-appropriate (and kid-approved) way to decorate their bedchamber that will stand the test of time. Bohemian decor to the rescue! With its laid-back vibe, plentiful textures, emphasis on color, and layered patterns, the “boho” look is sure to please even the pickiest members of your family.
Scroll on for nine boho girls’ rooms that any young lady would be happy to call their own.
1. Make it a four-poster bed.
If there’s a little girl out there who doesn’t love a four-poster bed, we have yet to meet her. It’s no surprise that Amber Lewis, master of the California-boho-chic look, perfectly nailed this sweet boho girl’s bedroom. This free-spirited design hits all the high notes with an abundance of floral patterns, weathered wood accents, and an embroidered duvet. A vintage rug anchors the scene.
2. Cover your walls in a classic print.
The origin of paisley print can be traced back thousands of years to Persia. Its feminine shape is the perfect backdrop for a boho girls’ bedroom, as proven by this cheery design by Emily Henderson which emphasizes the style’s eclectic roots — seen in the Moroccan-inspired bedside table, pom pom-flecked dhurrie rug, and inlaid mirror.
3. Hot pink for the win.
We welcome the fresh twist a whimsical pineapple print can bring to a hot pink bedroom, as seen in this punchy space belonging to one lucky lady. Chango & Co. recognizes the power of accessories, as they also added a tiered fringe pendant light, decorative basket wall decor, and a pair of natural woven area rugs for an abundance of texture, character, and girly charm.
4. Be restrained with your decor.
If you favor a less-is-more approach to decorating, you can forgo pattern and color and still achieve a bohemian girls’ bedroom — just like this one — with a few thoughtful accessories. White walls are the perfect neutral canvas to show off a wood-trimmed sleep space (with a pint-size privacy curtain), wall hanging, and a muted garland made of pennant flags. A sheepskin rug adds softness and cozy texture.
5. Add a statement wall.
It’s possible to use color and pattern and still achieve a boho girls’ bedroom that isn’t overly childish. This warm and inviting space balances an eye-catching accent wall with pastel linens, iron bed frames, a woven rug, and a couple of floor poufs. The earthy color palette blends perfectly with the growing hat collection displayed on the adjacent wall.
6. Stick with the classics.
Shea of Studio McGee makes it look effortless to create a traditional bedroom with boho moments by combining timeless pieces like a hand-turned natural wood bed, wainscoting, and campaign-style nightstands with bohemian essentials like a floral coverlet, landscape artwork, and layered rugs. Gold trimmed table lamps and pendant light keep the look elevated.
7. Add a funky rug.
Sweet dreams are made of bohemian girls’ bedroom ideas like this one by Shop Skout, where an ornate rattan headboard takes center stage against a polka dot accent wall to serve as the backdrop in a free-spirited space. A graphic striped rug adds a bit of edge while feminine decor like flirty fringed sheets, pink accents, and gold hardware add a measured dose of girl power.
8. Keep it neutral.
Surprise! You can create a boho girls’ bedroom without florals or pink by layering plenty of texture, warm earth tones, and organic materials for a grown-up but approachable desert-themed look. Ana Maria shows us how it’s done in this welcoming boudoir that features a rattan bed frame, sunset-colored linens, and natural accessories for a space that’s full of warmth and personal touches.
