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 original plan for Sawyer’s IKEA Billy Bookcase was very different than how it turned out. I would say that around half of my ideas change shape from the original idea – that’s a part of design and planning, sometimes plans change. In my mind, the bookcase would have no glass, and cane webbing in place of the glass. Then when I actually purchased the IKEA bookcase, I realized that the glass was incased in between the wood doors. And I wasn’t going to break out the glass so it was staying put. After unboxing the door, I realized I only had about 1/18 inch of wood to staple the cane webbing into the wood… um what?! The cane bookcase idea wasn’t going to work. As usual, I went to the Internet to brainstorm other possibilities for the IKEA Billy Bookcase boho hack. Jen of City Farmhouse actually paints right over the glass – her bookcase unit turned out beautifully, check it out here. I considered decoupaging paper and fabric, stapling fabric, contact paper, and peel and stick wall paper. I ordered some free contact paper samples and knew right away that paper wasn’t going to get us the boho look. We needed texture! Sawyer has had a burlap pin board for several years and she wanted to keep it with her new room design, so we decided to try out some burlap fabric in the bookcase.

IKEA Billy Bookcase Boho Hack – Tutorial

The steps are easy and straight forward. In fact, there are probably many other ways to attach fabric to cabinet doors, but this is how I did it. You can also check out my short video to see how easy it is, but here are the steps:

  1. Measure the cabinet door and determine how much fabric or burlap you need to buy.
    (I only needed three yards for this 8′ bookcase because the burlap is 45″ wide.)
  2. Cut the burlap in half and iron out any creases.
  3. Apply double sided tape around the inside of the bookcase, right against the edge of the wood frame near the glass.
    (The tape is just to reinforce the edge of the burlap and help keep it in place. It may not be necessary at all.)
  4. Use a small nail and lightly hammer the nail into each corner of the wood to make a start for the thumbtack.
  5. Then carefully hammer a flat thumbtack into the shallow nail hole until it’s flush with the wood.
    (I evenly placed 10 thumbtacks around each cabinet door.)
  6. Add door hinges and attach doors and handles to the cabinet.

Full disclaimer: It’s not perfect. There, I said it! I didn’t cut the burlap perfectly straight, I didn’t cut the burlap correctly (just google it), and I didn’t finish the burlap edge with a stitched edge or glue – nothing. But it still looks good, it works well, and it really does look cool in-person. This bookcase is a place for my daughter’s stuff and even though it’s organized stuff, it’s not stuff that she wants to look at all the time. So, covering the glass doors with inexpensive burlap was our fix. I love the idea of painting these doors, but that style wasn’t as good as a fit for this room. We could have found a different cabinet for her things, but we wanted a tall and slim bookcase to do the job – and the IKEA price couldn’t be beat. The point is, this worked for us and I hope it inspires ideas to help make your furniture or design work for you. Design plans don’t always pan out, so be encouraged that you’ll find a solution that works well and looks good too! And I’m always happy to help brainstorm possible ideas, so leave me a comment or shoot me an email!

If you don’t want clear glass doors on your cabinet or bookcase, there are lots of different techniques to consider. Using burlap is just one idea to consider and it was really easy to install and it’s not permanent. If we remove the burlap, tacks, and tape, there will be 10 tiny tack holes left, but we’re not worried about those. If you like this side of my teen daughter’s room, you gotta check out the other side with her bed. I created boho farmhouse shiplap with a plant shelf – it’s relaxing and soothing~
