Bathrooms are a place to unwind and relax (whilst giving yourself a good scrub, of course) and if there's one style that's perfect for setting the tone, it's bohemian. Nothing says relaxation more than natural textures, a pop of pattern, and laid-back styling, right?
Boho-chic design is heavily inspired by travel and culture. Think shades of pink, blue, and green to represent nature and warm shades of white to work with rattan and brass detailing. If you're after this look for your own bathroom, you can also incorporate a hint of pattern, a variety of textures, and tons of lush foliage to bring the outside in. When it comes to lighting, the same rules apply: Here are six bohemian bathroom lighting ideas to get you singing in the shower.

1. Make it all about bath time.
Jess Oakes envisioned a chandelier above her bathtub, and this domed macrame pendant is a relaxing hint of handcrafted. Thanks to the muted color scheme and natural accessories, this minimal bathroom ticks off the list for all things boho. Someone pass us a cup of herbal tea.

2. It's all about Capiz shell.
Capiz shell is definitely on-trend when it comes to bohemian style, and this bathroom by Caroline Martin is leading the charge with a unique chandelier that creates the perfect boho statement. Adding texture and dimension to the stripped-back, minimal aesthetic, the scalloped design is beautifully layered, with gold tones that add a little extra luster to the room.

4. Glam it up.
Bohemian style can be super glam. Exhibit one: this beautiful bathroom lighting idea designed by Three Birds Renovations. Bonnie, the creative director, offset the boho-chic patterned floor tile with a dark floating vanity and vessel sink, patterned pink wall tile, and luxe wall lights with brushed brass backplates and amber glass shades.
5. Think colorful.
Don't assume that in order to have a light and bright bathroom you should stick to an all-white color scheme; there's room for brighter tones, too. And wall sconces are a great way to add a little something different to your bohemian space (as well as a color fix) and will often bring a more luxurious vibe into your washroom.

6. Don't follow the norm.
Going boho means embracing your personality and doing the things that work for you. Just because hanging a ceiling fixture in the middle of the room is a traditional bathroom lighting idea, that doesn't mean you have to. Boho queen Justina Blakeney opted for a sculptural glass pendant to frame the vanity area in her parents' abode, pairing the hints of brass with warm and soft tones complements of reclaimed wood and rattan accents.
