The Muted Color Clash

If you have a tendency for all things matchy-matchy, it’s time to throw that habit out of the window! Known for being perfectly brash, colorful and clashing, the boho bedroom can combine as many prints and textures as your heart desires. On the plus side: you don’t have to look for ‘matching sets’, which is a wonder for your wallet!

For this muted fabric clash, begin by draping two sets of printed fabric off the ceiling, above your bed. The ‘hand embroidered tablecloth‘ and ‘ornamental embroidered tablecloth‘ are perfect prints to choose for this classy ceiling clash. Plus, the more sturdy fabric will ensure that your hippy ceiling will have just the right amount of drape.

For a continued clashing effect, invest in two contrasting bed covers. Begin by adorning your duvet with the stunning, warm-hued, ‘Ornamental embroidered set in saffron red.’ Next, choose a contrasting, cool-hued quilt cover, such as the ‘Hand Painted set in ocean blue‘ and use as a decorative bed spread. Plus: when Winter strikes at it’s coldest, you can snuggle up under both!

For this shabby-chic look, opt for cushion covers that have a worn-in and vintage look. The ‘Hand Painted Deluxe Accent Pillow Cover’ has a certain well-traveled, nomadic vibe to it. Opt for two or three different colors to adhere to the chic clashing theme of the room.

The Neutral Minimalist

If you’re a beginner to colorful decor, you may want to opt for this minimalist, bohemian bedroom. Sticking to a neutral palette of soft greys and creams, this look is all about embracing texture.

Choose a bed spread in a neutral tone, such as the ‘Hand Embroidered Set in Beige‘ to begin your neutral color theme. The subtle and sophisticated embroidered floral details on this bedding set ensures you are ticking all the boho boxes.

Now, it’s time to clash those textures! Sticking to a neutral palette, add layers of bed spreads and fabrics in faux-fur, wool and chunky knit. If you’re feeling glamorous, the ‘Solid Colour Silk Scarf in light grey‘ would make a subtle and chic bed runner and would add a glamorous silky touch to your decor.

What would a bohemian room be without a plethora of pillows? The cushions in this look are more about quantity than color, so opt for four or five cushions or pillows in neutral tones. The ‘Ornamental Embroidered Pillow Covers in snow white‘ would be a perfect choice for this subtle nod to Bohemia.
