The whimsical and artistic nature of Bohemian décor may transform your bathroom beyond recognition. Its mysticism and sensuality reflect opulent energy within, caused by the ecstatic and lively ambience. A Bohemian bathroom style relies on colours, patterns, vintage clawfoot fixtures, ethnic-inspired rugs and virtually anything that is not standardized for a random bathroom interior. If you’re one of those people who don’t like to match, preferring the creative chaos that gives them an opportunity for artistic expressions, Bohemian style is just for you.
The worn blue of the walls makes this bathroom a modern Moroccan wonderland with a classy and unique edge. The mosaic flowers shooting up the turquoise walls are bursting with lively and vibrant energy, set in a refreshing and sleek foundation. But don’t be deceived – this bathroom setting draws from minimalisms, which is augmented with a few silver décor pieces which draw all attention to a blue clawfoot bathtub. Although a hardwood floor isn’t a typical bathroom flooring, in this setting, it ‘un-matches’ perfectly with a lamb-white natural fibre rug. Swerving from popular opinion, heavy brocade curtains and plush rugs are welcome in the bathroom, provided they are kept outside the splash zone.
If you want to up your game, go with a truly lovely and luxurious Bohemian décor like this one. Relying on distinctive elements that stand out, this time-travelling bathroom features floral curtains that match the shower curtain surrounding the raised clawfoot bathtub – a combination that creates a symmetrical and charming setting in the bathroom. The Georgian window provides an influx of natural light that balances perfectly with the heaviness of stately brass and the crystal chandelier. A leafy bathroom plant in the corner brings a much-needed life element in this linen-heavy setting.
The amazing arrangement of dynamic colours, distinctive patterns and vintage elements give this bathroom a sharp, bold and vibrant ambience. The dramatic setting in this décor is anchored by the vibrant indigo blue wall with an elaborately framed window. In the centre is a stately tub and an ethnic-inspired area rug. In case you have difficulties finding a vintage one, manufacturers today offer a selection of freestanding bathtubs in a variety of styles and shapes, both classic and modern. Put a contemporary bathtub amidst the vintage furniture and mirrors, and you’ve hit a Bohemian jackpot. Alternatively, you can combine indigo blue walls with colourful ethnic art print tiles.
The vintage floral wallpaper breaks through white square tiles and poses as a stylish backdrop in this quirky bathroom décor. This bathroom draws heavily from dashing chic elements such as the elaborate black beaded chandelier, intriguing red vanity and an accent mirror with a Versailles-like golden frame. A simple area rug wouldn’t cut it in such an electrified setting. Instead, a wooden mosaic-like mat is used to increase comfort when getting out of – you’re guessing right – the clawfoot bathtub. In a Bohemian setting, even an upright whitewashed log with its bark removed can act as a hanger and a storage piece. Although belonging to totally different styles and niches, these furnishings work perfectly in this outstanding Bohemian performance.
Not all Bohemian-inspired bathroom decors need to be anchored in the last century. This fascinating, mod-like bathroom interior looks rather like a Bohemian living room in which the sofa has been replaced with a freestanding bathtub. The bathtub base is painted deep blue so it can relate to the indigo-hued Japanese mosquito netting curtains that bring more drama to the interior. The overdyed red carpet makes a nice contrast to the deep blues and injects the place with a beautiful lively vibe. The artwork in a setting like this is modern, dominated by a few watercolour frameless pieces and supported with a set of framed postcards and a flower vase on a round side table.
As we’ve seen in these five imaginative bathroom design ideas, your bathroom doesn’t have to be 100% sleek and shiny. However, Bohemian style is far from cluttered and disorganized. The key is to strike the right chords and achieve the illusion of a misshaped look with a few select pieces. If you’ve had success with boho décor in other parts of the home, there’s no reason it shouldn’t work in the bathroom as well.
