Best Boho Farmhouse Bedroom Decor

Best Boho Farmhouse Bedroom Decor

My teenage daughter, Sawyer, requested a boho farmhouse bedroom design when we were building our home. Knowing her as I do, and the subtleties of the boho farmhouse style made her bedroom design one of my favorites, so far. Sawyer’s boho farmhouse bedroom is my most pinned photo on Pinterest, and I get a ton of questions about her bedroom. Where did I get the pillows, the rug, the throw blanket, and the headboard are the most frequently asked questions and I’m dedicating this post to answer all those fine questions. Since some of the items are discontinued or were never online, I have found some of the best boho farmhouse bedroom decor to inspire your own design!

Best Boho Farmhouse Bedroom Decor – Design first

The first step in any good design, is to gather all your inspiration, make notes, pick out colors, and give consideration to all the elements before making a single purchase. Sometimes it doesn’t happen this way because a single purchase will inspire the entire room design. However, in general, come up with a good plan before you start shopping. Mixing boho and farmhouse elements is easy, but the best way to make it look good is to focus on the colors you incorporate. If you go for a bright boho look, it will be more difficult to fit in the farmhouse vibe. You can stick with blacks, whites, and neutrals for your color palette, but you better bring on the plants to give it that boho feel. However you design it, make a plan and have a whole vision before working out each detail.

Best Boho Farmhouse Bedroom Decor – Color scheme

For Sawyer’s boho farmhouse bedroom, I used muted and rich tones in the same colors. For instance, I used a soft pale salmon pillow which played well off the dark rust in the rug. And I selected the Magnolia paint color, Clean Lines, for the shiplap because when everything is out of the room, this neutral green looked amazing with the carpet, Alabaster white paint, and the light grey black-out curtains. The soft green grey was a good neutral to add some color but not overpower things. We have been in discussion to change the shiplap color, so be sure to subscribe and stay tuned for updates on that. The main colors (washed out or rich) are salmon, teal, navy, and mustard.

Best Boho Farmhouse Bedroom Decor – Pillows

The throw pillows were discovered and purchased over the course of several months, over a year ago, from Home Goods and Target. So, unfortunately, most of them aren’t available to directly link to. However, I have found several beautiful and affordable pillows that would also look amazing in Sawyer’s bedroom design, and I believe are some of the best boho farmhouse bedroom decor accessories out there.


Best Boho Farmhouse Bedroom Decor – Rugs

I must confess, I’m not usually a fan of shag rugs or carpets, but the rug in Sawyer’s boho farmhouse bedroom design is one of the prettiest rugs I’ve owned. The colors and pattern are brilliant, and we haven’t outgrown them yet. The shag length isn’t too long, and it provides a nice texture in the room which is great for the boho look. As of now, you can still find this rug at Target and I’ve been tempted to get the largest size, but my home isn’t boho so I must resist. I have also included some additional rugs that I think would have also looked lovely in this boho farmhouse bedroom design.


Best Boho Farmhouse Bedroom Decor – Throw blanket

When I placed the berry rust fleece blanket on the corner of Sawyer’s bed for the photo, I never imagined how many questions I’d get about it. Target had an endcap with all these beautiful jewel-toned fleece blankets, and I asked Sawyer which colors were her favorite. Berry was her first pick, but she pointed out several others too. And she has good taste, most of the colors would have been beautiful in her bedroom design, but that berry tone was quite special, and the fleece is perfect for snuggling. Here is the ever-requested throw blanket from the best boho farmhouse bedroom decor line-up (the other colors are also gorgeous):


Best Boho Farmhouse Bedroom Decor – Cane Headboard

This cane headboard is officially, the first piece of furniture I built. I constructed it on the living room floor of the apartment we lived in during the build of our home. The design is simple, just pocket holes, and the cane was an awesome find as I soon realized it’s hard to get cane at a descent price. You can watch the short video below to see how I constructed and mounted this headboard (no frame, yet). The video was done in the apartment (it was so dark and confining to me).

There is something so peaceful and relaxing about this space – this is the best part of the bohemian style. The casual cozy vibe of boho mixed with the homey farmhouse feel is such a great combination, especially for my laidback teen girl. We have been in discussions to refresh her space just a bit, but I promise that the overall vibe won’t change at all – still relaxing, beautiful, and comfy. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment below or over on Instagram~ Thanks for checking out this post, I hope you’re inspired!

The farmhouse style has been taking shape ever since Joanna Gaines made us all so aware of its simple beauty. There are many interpretations of the farmhouse style, I tend to lean toward the modern farmhouse look. However, lately I’ve been infusing some boho throughout our house. I love the textures and natural elements found in the bohemian look. The boho style can also be super colorful or simply neutral, it’s so flexible and fun! In designing a look for my teenage daughter’s bedroom, it was definitely going to be boho, but I wanted it to flow with our home too. I’m so excited to show you how to create boho farmhouse shiplap and give you a mini tour of her bedroom design.

Before construction!


My daughter, Sawyer, knows what she likes, but she’s also very open and flexible when considering other opinions and options. I had so much fun designing her bedroom space together. We threw around different ideas, color schemes, and how she wanted the room to feel. She likes color, but wanted the room to feel calm and relaxed, so we went with muted tones. The original feature wall was going to be diagonal board and batten, but it would have been too difficult for me to match up the boards with the french cleat bracket for her cane headboard – I just wasn’t up to that DIY challenge yet. She likes shiplap, but didn’t want white. We agreed to a light grey green, and found the most beautiful shade in Magnolia Home paint, called Clean Lines and it’s the best paint I’ve every used. I hate painting, I mean I seriously don’t like anything about it except picking out colors. I went ahead and brushed a coat onto the gap of the shiplap because it seemed like it would be difficult to paint inside it once it was installed. Magnolia Home paint went on like butter, hardly had an odor to it, and I painted all 9 boards in less than 30 minutes. Yeah, I went ahead and rolled the first coat on the entire board after feeling how fast and easy the layer went onto the gap. It dried quickly also and the finish was smooth and luxurious. I love it and have already started scoping out Magnolia Home colors for my husband’s office. I used about a half gallon after applying the second coat to the half-wall of shiplap. I’m guessing a can would have given me two coats of the entire 10’x12′ wall.

How to Create Boho Farmhouse Shiplap – Video Tutorial

I did my fair share of shiplap research, and found that I had to look for several tutorials in order to figure out how to do all the necessary steps for my wall. For the side baseboard issue, Jeremy and I had to just brainstorm and determine what we wanted to do. And I figured out the hard way that I would need to trim off the shiplap gap along the very top board if I wanted my shelf to work out. I created a video that covers all the details I came across when installing my shiplap, but I’ll also list them out below. I hope you find all the details you need and don’t have to shop around to cover unforeseen issues. Please hit that Like button on my video~



At this point, I ran out of daylight and realized that I attached my last shiplap board. I didn’t want to take it down to remove the shiplap gap along the top for the shelf, so I ran over to The Home Depot and got another board. This mistake turned out for the best because it made the wall a better height for the cane headboard. Lucky mistake for me!

At this point, I thought I was done with attaching the shiplap… but there was a problem with my top board. Be sure to watch my video to know how to prepare your last board for the shelf install.

How to Create Boho Shiplap – Step by Step

  1. Remove the baseboard trim and outlet covers.
  2. Cut the side intersecting baseboards at a 90 degree angle using a multi-tool.
  3. Mart the studs on your wall or use a stud finder for each board (I had to do this a bit because the huge electrical box in the wall threw off the stud finder).
  4. Paint the shiplap gaps – or the entire boards. This is a good time to paint the outlet covers if you want a seamless look.
  5. For each board, cut off a small piece to make sure each end is cut square.
  6. For each board, measure the wall, mark the cut on the board near the other end that hasn’t already been trimmed. It’s better to have the board be too long and have to go back and shave off a little more. Having the boards fit as closely as possible will make your caulking step later a bit easier.
  7. Place the shiplap board in place on the wall, use a level in case your floor isn’t level, and then use a brad nail gun to secure it into each stud. Use two inch brad nails and place two nails into each stud.
  8. Repeat steps 5, 6, 7 for each board – except the very top board.
  9. Once all the boards are up, add plastic wood to the brad nail holes. Once dry, sand smooth. I like to vacuum the dust and wipe it with a microfiber cloth.

    Cutting around an outlet
  10. When you reach an outlet, you’ll need to use a jigsaw or multi-tool to cut the piece out of the shiplap board. It helps to use one of the trimmed off ends to help you mark on the trim piece where the electrical box is located. I show how to do this step in the video. Please hit that Like button if you watch.
  11. Before you attach the shiplap boards around the outlet, you’ll need to CUT the POWER and add a gang box extender. This will pop out your outlet so that it’s flush with your new shiplap wall. You much CUT the POWER in order to unscrew the outlet and shimmy the extender box onto the outlet box. You screw the gang box extender in place and then add your boards. Once in place and lined up, tighten your outlet screws and you can resume power.

    Install Boho plant shelf
  12. To add a simple plant shelf, you’ll need to trim off the gap from the top piece of shiplap. I used a circular saw to do this, but a table saw would also work well.
  13. Our wall was just short of 12 feet long, so I used two 1″x2″x6′ select pine boards and two 1″x4″x6′ select pine boards.
  14. Measure the wall, and cut all 4 boards to fit perfectly across.
  15. Place the 1″x2″ boards on the wall – I used painters tape to hold mine up. Mark the stud locations along the bottom of the boards. I measured up 1/4″ inch for each stud mark because this is where you predrill your screw holes. Make sure you face out the prettiest side to mark your screw holes because this side will be seen. They are at 1/4″ up from the bottom because they’ll be hidden by the 1″x4″ shelf board later.
  16. You can attach the 1″x2″ boards to the wall into the studs. Make sure the boards are flush with the top shiplap board and even with each other as well. I used 3″ wood screws to attach this board to the wall.
  17. Hold your 1″x4″ boards up to the 1″x2″ board and mark three places to add your pocket holes. They can’t be aligned with the screws into the studs, that’s why your holding it up to the 1″x2″ boards so see where those screws are located.
  18. Use the Kreg pocket jig tool to make your pocket holes. These are placed on the underside of your shelf board, make sure you pick the prettiest side of this board to be on top.
  19. You may need a helper to hold up the shelf while you attach 1.25″ screws into the pocket holes. You can leave the pocket holes exposed, or fill with plastic wood, and sand when dry. You can also add plastic wood to the middle shelf seam if you don’t like seeing the line.
  20. You can caulk the seems along the side walls if you want. I chose to do this because my cuts weren’t perfect and the caulk helped to line things up.
  21. Once dry, prep your space for the final coat of paint.
  22. Once the paint is full dry, attach your outlet cover and style~
