Friends, settle in, because the inspiration we've found for masculine boho bedrooms around the web is sure to have you considering this style in a way you never have before. Sure, bohemian decor can often mean twinkle lights and pink poufs or bright patterns, but it can also be just as effective with more masculine details: neutrals, stripes, or streamlined furniture. Most notably, bohemian decor is often rooted in multiple layers, whimsical details, woven textures, and nods to nature — features that don't sway either feminine or masculine in style, and work well no matter which one you prefer.
