Bohemian Themes for Bedrooms
Colour is of utmost important for the Bohemian style. (oriental design image by Gina Smith from

A bedroom is a retreat where you go to get away and recharge from your hectic day. This is why decorating your bedroom with a bohemian theme is a great way to introduce a relaxed, carefree feel to this space. And, due to the very heart of this design style, you can often create this look by mixing and matching furniture you already own or by shopping at a local resale shop, flea market or antique store for some unique pieces. Add some colourful, bold fabrics with a vintage feel, and you are well on your way to your new bohemian-themed bedroom.


When selecting furniture for your bohemian bedroom retreat, you should look for unique pieces that make you feel like you're in an exotic location. Furniture with a Moroccan or Middle Eastern flair is best; however, if there is not a local Moroccan furniture warehouse near you, you can create your own bohemian bedroom focal point. One idea is to create a large, padded custom headboard with a Persian-styled arch or to create a fabric canopy over the bed. Nightstands can match each other but should not be from a set used for the bed or a dresser. The key here is to use eclectic pieces that work together but are not a matched, uniform set.


Bold colours are a must for any true bohemian bedroom with red, orange and pink as some of the most common colours. They can include metallic threads or embellishments as well. You can also use rich, jewel-toned sheers for creating an airy Bedouin feel around a canopy bed. Add texture to your room with gorgeous throw pillows---and do not skimp here, as tons of pillows in various shapes and sizes will give this space the romantic, comfy look you are after. Select bold prints with a vintage feel, as you do not want them to scream "brand new" or modern.


While you may not think of paint as an accessory, it can be a crucial one for a bohemian-themed bedroom. Select a bold colour for your walls. If you worry about having that much colour in your room, then just paint one accent wall. To select your wall colour, pull one of the non-dominant colours from your fabric choices. This trick will make your fabrics and accessories pop against your wall colour. The next trick for attaining your bohemian dream space is to replace any overhead lights or ceiling fans as well as lamps with unique fixtures having a Middle Eastern or Moroccan style. Add a plant and some candles, and you are ready to relax and reap the benefits of your hard work.
