How do you decorate in a Boho Style?
There are many ways to achieve the look of the Boho Style. Bold, colorful patterns are a huge part of this signature style.
You can achieve the Bohemian home decor look by layering in patterned area rugs, throw blankets, and pillows. To keep the look consistent the color palette of your patterns stripes or shibori should be similar.
Key items of boho room decor include:
- Worn rugs and upholstery
- Intricate global patterns
- Distressed furniture
- Patterned and Moroccan poufs
- Oversized floor pillows
- Handmade tribal accents
- Indoor hammocks and swing chairs
- Hand-dyed linens and fabrics
- Saturated colors
- Tropical indoor plants
1. Start with the “Look and Feel”
I always like to start with a jumping-off point in any room design.
This can be a piece of art, a rug, or bedding. In this design, we used super fun pillows and a pouf that is full of pattern, texture, and color.

2. Create the Floor Plan
Once you have your ideas for the look and feel it’s time to work on the floor plan.
I have worked in several floor plan programs that all get the job done.
When designing larger spaces I use Chief Architect but for individual room designs, I prefer Icovia or Bassett’s floor plan program.
The Bassett Furniture program is quick, easy, and available for FREE!
Here is the floor plan with the measurements for the featured design.
Here it is without the measurements and the pieces labeled.
Along with the queen-size bed, this design required a dresser, vanity, and desk.
As you can see it’s a bit tight. Above is the ideal layout for the pieces in this design.

3. Source the Furniture
The next step in the process is to pull links for the furniture in your design.
Start off by saving your favorite pieces on a Pinterest board. Don’t just take snapshots because you will forget where you found the resources.
Once you have the pieces adjust the measurements in your floor plan to reflect the dimensions of the actual furniture. You want to make sure all pieces fit and function in your room.
4. Select the Wall Color
Once the look and feel are established and your main furniture pieces it’s time for the wall color.
Many people start off with the paint color BUT this will lock you into a color. It’s best to choose the paint color with all the design elements of the room.
Always look at the design as a whole NOT at each individual piece! If you don’t the design process will take way longer than it should.
It also won’t be any fun!
The color of the featured design is Swiss Coffee OC-45 which is a pretty greige color. It is the perfect complement to the metallic accent wall.
For a lighter version, Swiss Coffee can be mixed at 75% which Shea McGee did in her home.
The featured wallpaper is Phillip Jeffries GV228 Brussels. There is also a Peel & Stick version from Target that is more budget-friendly. You can also paint the wall using Benjamin Moore’s Studio Finishes Metallic.
For a more Glam Boho vibe go for the velvet crush foil champagne wallpaper

5. Add Personality With Boho Decor
A great way to add personality is by using fun artwork. The featured design has a pink map (from Amazon) that ties back to the pillows. This is great for anyone who loves to travel and explore.
The gold frame ties back to all the gold accents in the room. It also adds a touch of glam and sophistication.
The principle of repetition simply means the reusing of the same or similar elements throughout your design. Repetition of certain design elements in a design will bring a clear sense of unity, consistency, and cohesiveness.
6. Mix and Match Furniture Vendors
Adding just one piece of a furniture collection is a great way to add originality to your space.
Anytime you mix the furniture in from different vendors you will create a unique look that speaks to your personality. This way you avoid the “showroom” looking home.
This design incorporates elements from both the Bohemian and Glam styles. Hence the name Boho Glam Dorm Bedroom At Home!
That’s a wrap on this design makeover!

Have a great day full of Unicorns and Rainbows!
