Watercolor prints.  Native American inspiration.  Natural elements like wood and stone–some call it hippie chic, but I call it the new boho!

Traditional boho decor derives a lot of inspiration from middle eastern cultures with it’s bright jewel tones, gold accents and eclectic patterns.  The new boho, however, is more like cool hippie chick meets brave tribal warrior!tribal arrow

You can easily create a new boho space of your own, using a soft watercolor palette and plenty of natural decorative accents with splashes of personal touches.  After all, ​your dorm space has to be a place where you can relax, study, create and unwind, and what better place to show off your free spirit?

 Where to start?  Well, that’s easy.  Simply combine old with new furniture pieces (a bedframe, a dresser, a desk).  Add a touch of whimsy with macrame wall hangings, windchimes and candle holders. Layer your bed (which is no doubt the focal point of your space) with casual throw blankets and throw pillows. Twinkly fairy lights set the mood and treasured photos in vintage frames remind you of family and friends back home.  Create a bohemian mood board around your indie-inspired work space.  Think of your dorm as your own personal bohemian retreat!

New boho decor staples:

  • Lots of throw pillows & throw blankets
  • Scented candles (and even incense) in decorative holders
  • Wall words & photos of positive quotes (check out these gorg tribal/boho free printables!)
  • Dreamcatchers and windchimes in all different sizes and shapes, hung about your space
  • Sheer white netting used as window treatments and/or as a bed canopy
  • Tapestries with mandala and/or tribal prints
  • Plants and cacti (real or artificial), hanging and/or table top
  • Natural elements, like wood, stone, fabric and even feathers​!
