These Bohemian Kids' Bedroom Ideas Are Just Plain Wondrous

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.

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 Postively Pearson, style your hammock with a lumbar and oversize throw pillow for an extra dose of cozy boho style.

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.

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.

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 with a neutral area rug and botanical wallpaper.

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.

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.

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.

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.
