Men dream of that perfect ‘man shed’, whereas women lust over that perfect dressing room or walk in wardrobe. With the shabby, boho trend still high up in the home decor stakes, a boho dressing room is a cheap and easy way to get that ‘celebrity wardrobe’ in your home.
Messy at heart, but polished on the surface, boho dressing rooms can be created using everyday items. Absolute zero rotating shoe racks & fancy cupboards are needed! The best thing about this look is that you don’t even need a designated room, just choose a wall or corner somewhere in your home and you are ready to go!
Have I peaked your excitement? Good! Here’s five beautiful boho dressing rooms that you will want in your home…
The Pretty & Simple

Who knew that creating such a show-stopping dressing room could be done with such few ingredients? The minimal, yet quintessentially b0ho nature of this dressing room is what makes it so in Vogue. Pops of color look great against the rustic floor and walls and potted greenery brings that sense of outdoor wanderlust in.
Begin by propping an oversized mirror (preferably wooden) against the wall. Surround your mirror with fresh or faux greenery in clay pots, and arrange on different sized stands to ensure it looks random. Add some color to the floor by adorning it with the exotic oriental table runner. Add a freestanding clothing rack and arrange your garments randomly. Hang vibrantly hued hats on the wall to add some more color and add a variety of adornments to the floor, alongside a metal chair.

Disney Princess meets Scandinavian minimalism, this living room is all pinks, squares and burnished metals. A Vintage-style dressing table adds an air of shabby chic, while a modern lamp and scaffolding-style light fitting bring it forward to 2016. This boho dressing room was made for the girly-girl with an edge!
Go to an antique or second hand shop and pick up a vintage-style table. Don’t worry if it’s a bit too shabby, it can be easily be transformed by a coat of white paint! Add some bright pink flowers to your table and attach a large, metal rimmed, mirror just above the table. Adorn your table with a array of girly stationary and a rustic gold lamp. Compliment the lamp with a large, burnished metal vase, under the table. Add a cushioned, pink chair and dot with the paisley embroidered pillow cover. Compliment with other square furniture and adornments.

If there was a definition of rustic, boho, I think this was sum it up down to a tee! The mish-mash of furniture, dream catchers and hanging jewellery is an absolute dream. If you have a lot of beautiful jewellery pieces that you would like to show off, this dressing room is perfect for you!
Grab an old chair and dress it up with a couple of printed cushions. We recommend floral embroidered pillow cover and hand embroidered brocade pillow cover. Adorn your dressing table with some feathers in glass jars and hang fringed accessories up for an extra statement. Attach a small wooden self set and a photo frame and decorate with jewellery. Finally, hang dream catchers and statement bohemian, necklaces and voila!

How’s this for timeless with an edge? Think Audrey Hepburn, in 2016, who spends her days trekking the globe. The flawless wood and sleek, white cupboards would be a worthy addition to any home. The aztec-style, mon0chrome rug and makeup bags adds a modern, boho flair, whilst remaining glamorous.
Begin by adding two printed, monochrome table runners in front of your wardrobe. We recommend the hawthorn leaf table runner and the hand embroidered table runner. Add a minimalist, white stool to your vanity and dot the shelf with a few patterned, monochrome makeup bags. For an extra classy edge, add vintage black and white fashion photos.
The Vintage Attic

Now you can have a literal vintage treasure chest in your home. Transform your attic into a shabby, silky wonderland with brocade florals and metallic-hued seating. Although this dressing room may be the hardest to recreate, it is undeniably the most lavish!
In your attic, fill one wall with freestanding clothes racks. Add drawers under half of the racks and leave the other half for full-length garments. On the other wall, add shoe racks or a dressing table. Add a metallic chaise to the center of the room and non-nonchalantly throw on pillows and blankets. If you want to add the floral brocade print, use our jacquard floral table runner.
