The Minimalist Boho Style: What Is It?

Simply put, minimalist boho is a trendy hybrid of the two design styles: minimalist and bohemian. It is uncluttered and simple but brings in personality with the use of textures and, at times, colors.

While the minimalist and boho styles may not have much in common at first thought, they actually have a fair share of similarities. Even their differences can be used to create a beautiful contrast in a bohemian minimalist bedroom.

Think clean lines with plenty of natural elements. Or pared-back color palettes with layered textures. The key is mixing and matching the various elements of each style to create a seamless blend.

Top 5 Minimalist Boho Bedroom Ideas

Creating a boho minimalist bedroom is as simple as merging elements of each style that go well together. Doing so will show you how beautifully the two styles combine to create a relaxing retreat.

Below, we share the top 5 minimalist boho bedroom ideas you can replicate in your space (or use for inspiration to curate your own)!

Use Plenty of Natural Textures

Natural textures instantly add warmth to any room, and are quite the secret to the welcoming vibe of an otherwise minimalist interior. So, abundantly incorporate these into your minimalist boho room.

Excellent examples are using materials, such as rattan and wicker, for your bedroom furniture. Simply opting for wood (or wood-like) pieces will do the trick, too.

Also, don’t forget minimalist bedroom plants. These add a punch of greenery to your neutral interior while holding many health benefits. Tip— faux plants are also an option if you have a brown thumb.

Go Big On Natural Light

Extending our concept of natural materials, we have a very important aspect: natural light. In a bohemian minimalist bedroom, keeping things light and airy is essential. And this can single-handedly be achieved by ensuring optimal levels of natural light.

Pair large-sized windows with little to no draperies. For example, translucent curtains or easy-to-wind blinds.

Opting for a light color palette (highly applauded in this style) helps reflect natural light throughout the room, while a mirror can further amplify this effect. If you love punches of dark hues, there’s a little something for you, too — see below.

Contrast Light and Dark

A minimalist boho room is typically built on a pared-back color palette. The hues used are those with soft undertones, such as beiges and greys. An all-white interior is also welcome, provided you layer it with textures.

But if you love a bold punch of color, there are plenty of dark boho bedroom ideas with a twist of minimalism, too! 

For a dark bohemian bedroom, consider:

  • A dark-hued palette, for example, dark gray/charcoal. This can be added through an accent wall
  • A window without any draperies to ensure the interior doesn’t get grim
  • Plenty of plants and textures to keep the ambiance inviting

Layer, Layer, and Layer

A minimalist space can easily lack warmth and character. This is where the concept of layering, typically found in a cozy bohemian bedroom, comes in handy; it restores warmth in these hybrid interiors.

Remember: incorporating textures is important, but layering them is key. 

Consider using plenty of pillows on your bed. Be sure to arrange them in one of the pillow arrangement settings that look coherent yet stunning.

While a comforter may be found on all beds, you can top this with a chunky throw blanket in your minimalist boho room. Laying down a rug is also a great way to achieve the purpose.

Bonus points if you choose a rug with a fringe. This is because fringes help add a touch of boho playfulness to your bedroom.

Focus on the Details

Minimalist boho bedroom ideas are incomplete without adding decorative elements:

  1. Hang a macrame. This adds texture and warmth while acting as a subtle, minimal decor piece.
  2. Pick an arrangement of artwork. A boho favorite is line art!
  3. Play with patterns to add visual interest. This can be done through printed table lamps and patterned cushions.

Pro Tip— Consider choosing a single arrangement of wall art to act as the focal point. This makes sure you’re sticking to the uncluttered concept of minimalism during the process.
