Bohemian decor has been trending since the ’60s and has developed and morphed with different iterations – from the traditional textured Moroccan style to a more muted beachy Californian take. No matter how you choose to transform your room ranging from a nod to bohemian style or deep diving into the colour palette of Morocco – we have your style guide for creating the bohemian bedroom of your dreams covered.
Picking Your Colour Palette
If you are wanting to dip your toe into the bohemian decor with a subtle approach, begin with muted tones and bright whites on your walls and bedspread to contrast any pops of colour in your accessories.
If you are wanting to create a bolder statement with your bohemian room, immerse yourself in the colours of Marrakech, Morocco. The vibrant city reflects the resources they had available such as the nearby red desert clay, piles of spices like turmeric and saffron, as well as the bright turquoise greens and cobalt blues of their religious temples.

Including colours such as Tumeric Powder, Saffron Yellow, Turquoise Lagoon, Cobalt Stone, Morocco, Orange Ice or Moroccan Spice either as a feature wall, entire room or to repurpose furniture will transform your room to a Marrakech oasis in no time.
When it comes to bohemian decor, the rule of thumb is that more is more. Adding rugs, carpets, tapestries, pillows with a variety of natural fibres like leather, cotton, wool, Hesham, wood, etc. will give your room an instant eclectic boho vibe. Sourcing patterned blankets and pillows is a great way to add pattern to achieve a boho aesthetic. If you have chosen to keep your wall white, the textile pillows and blankets are your opportunity to add colour and have fun with the decorating.

Accessorise With Curated Treasures
Bohemian decor is known for its eclectic nature, so displaying objects and art that represent places you have been, things that have inspired you or that you simply (enjoy even if they don’t necessarily match)! Displaying them on shelves or hung on walls will give your favourite objects an effortlessly curated look.
Decorating your bedroom with plants adds another earthy element to your bohemian dream room. Again, using the more is more mindset – add plants of different sizes, textures and colours to create a bohemian haven by incorporating plants into your space in innovative ways. You can place small succulents in your bookshelves and use macramé to hanging different creepers from the ceiling or window frames. Potting larger plants in elaborate ceramic pots in vibrant colours in the corners of your room will serve as an essential decoration to any bohemian-themed room. Pro tip – find a plain ceramic or terracotta pot and paint it yourself using a stencil. See our tips on creating stencils.
