Bohemian style is innately relaxed and whimsical, making it a pretty perfect design choice for your little one. And while sleek and modern kids’ bedroom ideas certainly have their appeal, there’s just something about macrame and tasseled decor that we find hard to resist. Signature staples of the bohemian aesthetic include woven textures, neutral color palettes, floral patterns, and greenery to boot. From hanging hammocks to botanical wallpaper, there’s plenty for you and your tiny tots to love about a boho bedroom makeover. Ahead, we’re sharing nine boho-chic kids’ rooms that are sure to inspire a sleeping quarters overhaul.
And not to worry, we didn’t forget about the adults — here are 20 grown-up ideas worth your consideration.
1. Use a Calming Color Palette.
A calming color palette feels warm and welcoming in this neutral, boho kids’ room by Natalie Marom Myers. To steal this style for your own space, opt for light-colored walls, a woven rug, and a rattan accent chair for plenty of texture.
Wall tapestries truly can do it all. They’re lightweight to hang on the wall, durable to use as a tablecloth and vivid colors make it an eye-catching outdoor blanket. Keep an extra tapestry or two in the trunk of your car for spontaneous park hangs or to set the scene for a meal on the go. Available in three sizes.More Wall Tapestry Styles >>
2. Create a Cozy Reading Nook with the Help of a Hammock.
As if we didn’t already love reading nooks enough, replacing a chair with a hammock just made this kids’ bedroom idea even more fun. To recreate this look from Julie of Positively Pearson, style your hammock with a lumbar and oversize throw pillow for an extra dose of cozy boho style.
Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Individually cut and sewn by hand, each pillow features a double-sided print and is finished with a concealed zipper and faux down insert. Keeping an assortment of throw pillow designs on hand is the easiest way to give any space an instant refresh. Available in four sizes.<< More Throw Pillow Styles >>
3. Decorate the Walls with Macrame.
Trade traditional artwork for a macrame wall hanging, just like Mandi from Vintage Revivals did in her niece’s bedroom, creating a one-of-a-kind headboard. Can you believe this is a DIY project? We love how she finished off the look with copper pipe and a plywood backdrop, adding extra warmth and texture.
It’s easy to get lost in sleep in our warm yet lightweight comforters. Colors pop on this bedding staple and they will surely be the focal point of your bedroom’s decor. Choose from either synthetic microfiber or our natural fiber cotton. Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen and King sizes.<< More Comforter Styles >>
4. Feature Tasseled Bedding for a Whimsical Vibe.
This boho kids’ bedroom idea by Ness from Four Cheeky Monkeys is cuuuuute! The finished space feels thoughtfully styled, yet it remains fun and playful thanks to pops of vibrant color and cheeky bedding. Pretty much anything with giant tassels is a YES.
Cozy up with our unbelievably soft throw blankets. Crafted with sherpa fleece, these blankets actually get softer the more times you wash them. Coordinate with throw pillows and rectangular pillows for whatever nook needs a little extra dose of comfy. Available in three sizes.More Throw Blanket Styles >>
5. Opt for Rattan Furniture.
Rattan is a tried-and-true staple of bohemian decor, but it’s also incredibly timeless. The casual look is sure to grow and evolve in your little one’s bedroom as the years go on, no matter how many times you redesign the rest of their space. To copy this gorgeous kids’ bedroom idea from Margaux over at the french folk, pair it with a neutral area rug and botanical wallpaper.
Make a big statement. Wall murals are the ideal way to turn a blank wall into a showcase for your unique style. Simply line up the panels, peel and stick to reveal your stunning design. Plus, they’re removable and leave no sticky residue behind. Wall murals available in two floor-to-ceiling sizes.More Wall Mural Styles >>
6. Bring the Outdoors in with Floral Wallpaper.
Flowers and foliage are definite must-haves when it comes to boho decor, and that’s why we love the light blue, nature-inspired wallpaper in this charming kids’ bedroom. To recreate the look, complement a botanical print by draping verdant greenery all around. Add in rustic, worn furniture to give the room some vintage flair.
Our floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for outdoor seating. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.More Floor Cushion Styles >>
7. Add a Few Potted Plants as Decor.
Add foolproof texture and color with a large potted plant, just like this kids’ bedroom idea from Pure Salt Interiors. Style the room with a brass bedside lamp and kilim throw pillow to achieve that perfectly relaxed (yet polished) boho look.
Our blackout window curtains are a denser alternative to your standard window curtain, blocking out most light and proudly featuring your favorite designs. Whether you live in a busy apartment or a peaceful neighborhood, it’s always nice to have the option to shut out the sun and relax inside by the candlelight. Available in either single or double panel options. A double panel features the same design on both panels. The bottom edge of curtain includes a 2″ pocket that can be used as a hanging pocket, but beware that the artwork will be upside down for any non-patterned designs.More Blackout Curtain Styles >>
8. Make a Statement with a Woven Chandelier.
Lighting can make or break a kids’ bedroom idea, but in this case, it definitely makes it. Pair a woven chandelier with crisp white and light wood furniture to create a calm, boho-inspired space your little one (or you) will never want to leave. Better yet, take a page out of Amber Thrane’s book and add potted plants and a patterned area rug for added interest and texture.
Express your style all over your home with a feature-worthy rug. They’re made from a woven, polyester chenille for a soft and textured look. Plus, choosing from our wide array of designs, you’re sure to find just the rug to match your decor. Rugs are one of the best, attention-grabbing pieces to design a room around. Use the colors within the rug to help choose art prints, furniture fabric and accent pillows.<< More Rug Styles >>
9. Get Cozy with a Canopy Over the Bed.
If there was any question that hanging a canopy over the bed is one of the dreamiest design moves you can make, this room by Christine from This Haus of Ours pretty much confirms it. To snag the look for your own home, pair with a rattan bed and rust bedding for an ultra-cozy vibe, along with a whimsical mobile and yarn wall hangings to soften the look.
Our floor pillows are the perfect pick for seating in a pinch. They’re overstuffed and firm to never lose their shape and the high-quality print makes sure the design stays crisp and colorful. Available in round or square, with two size options.More Floor Pillow Styles >>
