These White Bohemian Bedroom Ideas Are a Breath of Fresh Air

Bohemian style has become one of the most coveted aesthetics on Pinterest and Instagram, and it's not hard to see why. From the flowing dresses and straw hats, to interiors decked out in rattan and verdant plant life, we're all obsessed with this laid-back look. Luckily, it's one of the easiest design styles to pull off. You can easily add character to white walls with the help of warm earthy colors, patterns, natural textures, and unique wall decor, and these picturesque ideas will show you how it's done. Renters and homeowners, take note: Here are nine white bohemian bedrooms to turn those sweet interior daydreams into a reality.

1. Be eclectic.

A bohemian aesthetic is all about personality, even if you want the walls to remain neutral. Brittni of Paper & Stitch got creative in her rental apartment, creating a wooden headboard for this white bohemian bedroom that gives the impression of an artist's home.

2. Let the light in.

Minimalists rejoice! An all-white bedroom can be a calming space to rest a weary head at the end of the day, as well as a soothing sanctuary to read and relax. Amy Carrillo of Love on Sunday created a light and airy, white bohemian bedroom with a pair of simple sheer curtains, white bed linens, and a paper lantern to finish. Simplicity at its best.

3. Make way for texture.

When working with varying shades of white, it's important to create layers with different textures and points of interests. Don't just rely on the walls to do the talking. Molly of Almost Makes Perfect has added just the right amount of texture to her white bohemian bedroom by incorporating fluffy pillows, knitted blankets, a jute rug, and a DIY fringe wall hanging.

4. Keep it neutral with wood.

Natural materials are a key design detail within bohemian decor, so don't be afraid to get rustic with your furniture choices. Kristen and Mike of TheresSnowPlaceLikeHome added a touch of the great outdoors to their white bedroom with a wooden bench, leafy foliage, woven accessories, and handmade wall decor.

5. Work your wall art.

A simple white bohemian bedroom can be obtained with little effort, but you might want to add a touch of color, too. Interior designer Sarah Sherman Samuel added blue and gray accents to this relaxed setup with the help of patterned throw pillows and a large yarn wall hanging.

6. Lower your bed.

Platform beds are an easy way to bring the boho look to your sleeping quarters, and they'll add inches to your ceiling height, too. Just look at how much height the low bed in Geneva from Collective Gen's bedroom has created — awkward space no more!

7. Go global.

Influences from traveling are rife in the world of bohemian decor, so don't be afraid to dig out your vacation souvenirs circa 2000. Think Mexican bowls, Moroccan rugs, and handmade textiles. Sara and Rich from The Joshua Tree House nailed the look in this white bohemian bedroom that showcases a glistening gold lantern and fabric draping over the bed.

8. Work a monochrome palette.

You know there are plenty of different shades of white to choose from, right? The beauty of an all-white bedroom is that you can add in a myriad of different shades to keep the look interesting. Even the wall art in this bedroom designed by Three Birds Renovations has been blasted with a white overlay. Bright white, subtle shades of cream, and a few grayish hues will help to create a monochrome scheme that looks anything but boring.

9. Finish with plants.

Plants make people happy. Add a refreshing pop of greenery to your white bohemian bedroom with hanging plants and potted palms. Sara of Black and Blooms got the easy-breezy look just right in her guest bedroom, creating a cozy corner with an IKEA stackable bed, textured white throw pillows, and a macrame wall hanging.
