5 Ways To Create A Boho Botanical Bedroom

 Hues of midnight blue, charcoal and inky black teamed with vibrant floral patterns on a dark background creates the feeling of a wonderfully French secret garden. Imagine a clear night’s sky lit up by a full moon casting a dappled glow over a fragrant walled rose garden. Imagine recreating this feeling at home, a secret sanctuary bedroom where you sleep away the hours in perfect, restful bliss. A Boho botanical bedroom!

Darker shades and jewelled hues encourage us to feel safe and tranquil making them ideal colours for use in places of contemplation or where relaxation is key. Nowhere is this more important than in the place where we sleep. The bedroom.

But how do we translate this trend to our very own bedroom? Well, the trick is to contrast the dark and bold elements with the moonlight, that is to say, something light. Whether this is crisp white bed linen, a chalk white painted wall or the odd piece of French White, silver or gold furniture. Texture and jewelled floral highlights are key to this look which can be translated in many ways.
