The Best Boho Bed Linen

The key to an undone, bohemian bedroom styling comes down to the room’s centrepiece: your bed. Scroll through your Instagram or Pinterest feed and they’ll likely be filled with perfectly imperfect, effortlessly layered, delicately colour-coordinated bedding collections.

Creating your own isn’t difficult – and now that big high street interiors brands like H&M, Urban Outfitters and La Redoute have stepped into the bed linen game – it needn’t be costly.

How To Style A Boho Bed

  1. Start with the right textures. Rather than cotton, which is a little one-dimensional, choose textures with depth – washed linen, berber, tufted canvas and quilt
  2. Choose colours with care. Earthy, organic colours are classic boho, but truly any colour scheme – dark and moody, airy and neutral, bright and jewel-toned – can work. Choose a minimum of 3 colours to avoid it looking formulaic, and…
  3. Break up colours for depth. So your duvet cover and your top pillow cases are different colour, so they don’t ‘touch’. Consider: a duvet cover and bottom pillow cases in Colour 1 (e.g. mustard), then top pillow cases and a blanket in an accent – Colour 2 (e.g. dusty pink), and a couple of cushions in tones of a third, more neutral colour (e.g. sand)
  4. Prints or not prints – choose one. A single print against plain backdrops can look a little ‘Marks & Spencer home catalogue’. For something more boho, keep everything plain with different tones and textures, or clash prints with abandon – paisley, ikat and anything global are good options
  5. Mix, don’t match. Curating your own bedding set from different retailers, rather than buying a single set, will automatically create that ‘undone’, effortless look you’re going for
