Yes, we confess – we are besotted with Bohemia. Our hearts have been captured by its relaxed, free-spirited vibe and we can’t escape it; we’re well and truly hooked.

The trend is creeping into all our favourite high street stores and online shops and it’s becoming increasingly hard to resist. “Noooo!” come the cries of our defeated other halves, who have long since drawn a line under our relentless interior spending. “The house is done!” They insist, “complete – finito! Absolutely NO MORE CUSHIONS!” Ah jeez, it’s like they never learn. OF COURSE there will be more cushions – and throws – all adorned with pom poms, fringing and tassels no less.

Is it our fault there is a new interior trend in town? And anyway, where’s the harm in a little accessorising to update? Exactly. So with this is mind, we have selected the very best bohemian-inspired interiors and plan to spend the upcoming week telling you exactly where to shop to achieve them. Affordably of course.
We will begin today with this beautiful boho bedroom. But do come back in a few days when we will be telling you how to adopt the trend in your living room and a few days after that, your dining space!

How breath-taking is this? It’s one of our all time favourite bedroom shots and the owner is well worth a follow for a surge of interior inspiration. You can easily recreate the look with our style steal recommendations…

Boho cushions are available from our current favourite Etsy shop ‘Home of Boho.’ The one above for example is around £20, but you may need to pre-order to secure one. As soon as it arrives in stock, it flies out again! La Redoute also has an extensive range of pom pom and tassel cushions. (They have 40% off Everything at the moment until the end of November)
The best price we’ve ever found on belly baskets is £9 in Ikea. Team with one of their stylish plants and you’re well away!
This beautiful bamboo lantern is currently £9 in the sale at Matalan.
A stylish, woven rug can be found on Ebay for £29.99. Search ‘Fair trade jute and cotton braided Indian rug.’
Look on Wayfair for blanket ladders like this one, priced just £27.99. Barker and Stonehouse also have a lovely white one for £45.
We are loving all things driftwood; the material used to create the dreamiest bohemian accessories. See that beachy, beaded garland hanging from the ladder in the inspo pic? We WANT one, but we didn’t want to pay the costs to ship it all the way from Oz. So we found this instead, £16.79 from Maisons Du Monde.
Throws don’t get more boho than the selection H&M Home are currently offering. This one is our fave and only £34.99.
Don’t forget you’ll need some wall art. The print in the inspo pic is a Desenio special, but a little costly. If you think creatively enough with Google Images, the ‘Copy Paste’ function and ooh I don’t know, your work printer? I’m sure you could work something out. But shhhh, you didn’t hear that from us!
And finally, no Bohemian-inspired room is complete without a hanging macramé. La Redoute have a good range, with lots of different colours available. But this one is a snip at £10 from Matalan. Alternatively you could always make your own by following the simple steps in last week’s ‘How To’ feature!
So there you have it. A brand new, beautifully boho bedroom on a budget. Not bad hey? Now all I have to do is find a room to restyle…
