Teenage Bohemian Bedroom themes…

With a décor style that is vivid, lush and undeniably eclectic, bohemian room design might be just the thing for a style-conscious son or daughter looking for a bedroom mood that is a far cry from more conventional mainstream design. It’s an aesthetic that strikes a worldly timeless chord allowing for great flexibility to personalise and accessorise, incorporating colour palettes of rich ambers and reds for a cosy bedroom persona, with interesting textures, forged iron hardware and exotic beaded lampshades. Create sensory intrigue with vanilla and sandalwood scented candles or incense sticks for a bohemian bedroom retreat that exudes plush style and an air of mystique. Bedtime need never be quite the same again…

Set the rich tone with a warm inviting paint colour that is the essence of bohemian chic. Deepest dusky pinks, burnt ambers or rich red and crimson shades all provide a strong backdrop for sultry bohemian style. Lush wall colours provide the perfect display area for ornate ironwork and light or candle fixtures, and heavy gilded framed mirrors, paisley golden accent stencil designs, and dark wood framed prints and paintings, will all be in keeping here. Consider also empty ornate gilt frames for an authentic bohemian touch and an eclectic mix of wall sconces in forged iron of gilt styles to flank a fabulous centre-piece ornate wooden bed or Victorian style iron bedstead, hanging them at different height intervals in true bohemian spirit.

Look out for bedding in rich colours to breathe life into that sumptuous traditional bed design. Those patterns and colours inspired by Indian saris make good bohemian-style choices with bright violet silks and deep gold’s striking the perfect chord, while paisley patterned fabrics are also an inspired choice. Gold embroidered silken coverlets or duvets suggest a nomadic gypsy style, with plump brightly coloured pillows sitting luxuriously atop the bed. Use sheer or opaque fabrics in red, gold, and orange shades to drape the head of the bed to create an opulent mood, with a soft purple velvet runner across the foot of the bed to continue the rich fabric theme.

Complete the bohemian vibe with a medley of accessories that brings balance and individuality to the space. An amber beaded curtain might cover a doorway or open fronted hanging space creating a melodious chink when someone enters the room or when a breeze blows through the window. Sheer red curtains warm the natural light that enters the room, whilst a cluster of candles give off the musky scent of cinnamon and ginger. Scatter velvety pillows for informal floor seating, and scour the antique arcades and craft fairs for gold rimmed glass vases and porcelain-ware to display a collection of coloured stones or elements of nature. Anything with a whimsical Moroccan association will feel at home here; some Moroccan slippers or some richly coloured pierced paper stars or lanterns to hang from the ceiling perhaps, or to decorate that imposing carved wooden bedstead ? A steamer travel chest at the foot of the bed suggests intriguing worldwide travel adventures as well as offering a practical storage solution for teenage bedroom clutter, with deep woven wicker baskets providing additional handy informal storage space for scarves, books, magazines and assorted bedroom trinkets…
