Bohemian, or boho, style is well-loved for the relaxed and laid-back vibe it imparts on interiors. The trademark characteristics of boho design — soothing colors, natural wood elements, and layered textiles — make it a picture-perfect match for baby nurseries. And luckily, there's no shortage of inspiring spaces to drool over when creating your baby's boho-inspired sleep space. Check out the following free-spirited nursery ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
1. Keep it neutral.
2. Give black and white a try.
Black and white doesn't have to be severe. A black and white nursery by Ashn Fashn gets the boho treatment when global-inspired textiles are paired with a mix of textures and a requisite desert photo.
3. Embrace basket art.
4. Go glam.
5. Consider a kilim.
Don't underestimate the transformative power of a good rug like this kilim, which would look equally at home in a boy's or girl's room. Amber Lewis has the California-inspired bohemian look mastered: She outfits this welcoming sleep space with quintessential pieces like a plush Icelandic sheepskin throw, vintage footstool, and a live-edge side table.
6. Go buttoned-up boho.
7. Choose a stand-out crib.
8. Select soothing colors.
Maddy over at Hutchinson.house designs a charming boho nursery using a serene color palette and timeless furniture. The pièce de résistance is the botanical wallpaper from Sanderson (which unfortunately is not available in the United States), that serves as a soothing backdrop to a natural crib and painted dresser with brass accents. A Persian rug adds pattern in warm earth tones.
9. Add some fringe.
A fringe chandelier is a home-run boho nursery idea that adds texture, warmth, and a handmade feel to this eclectic nursery idea crafted by Justina Blakeney of Jungalow. A black and white animal-print accent wall makes a playful statement that's complemented by a decorative mirror and brass accessories.
