1. Boho Plants

Plants are a crucial element of boho bathroom décor. Not only do they add color and texture, but they also bring a sense of serenity and relaxation to your space. Plus, many plants thrive in the warm and humid environment of a bathroom.

In my home, the addition of a fiddle leaf fig plant and a swiss cheese plant transformed the ambiance of my living room. Their presence is so impactful that I've extended this passion for greenery into the bathrooms as well.

When selecting plants for your boho bathroom, there are some low-maintenance options that can handle the moisture and low light conditions. Spider plants, snake plants, and pothos are all great choices that can thrive in a bathroom environment. You could also add some air-purifying plants such as aloe vera or peace lily to enhance the freshness and serenity.

To incorporate plants into your bathroom décor, try hanging them from the ceiling or placing them on a plant stand or shelf. You could also attempt a living wall by installing some shelves and filling them with small plants. For a truly boho look, place your plants in textured woven baskets or rustic clay pots.

Plants are natural air purifiers and can help to reduce stress levels, making your bathroom the perfect place to unwind after a long day.


2. Boho Paintings

Boho paintings are a great way to add color and personality to your bathroom décor. Whether you prefer nature-inspired pieces like moth art or abstract art, there are many options to choose from that can help you achieve the boho aesthetic.

Being an avid user of Pinterest, I've been inspired by countless boho-themed artworks. I believe that choosing a piece that speaks to you personally is essential. It's the emotion and individuality that the art piece brings to the space that truly defines its boho essence.

When selecting a boho painting for your bathroom, think about the color scheme and overall vibe you want to create. Soft, muted colors can create a calming atmosphere, while bold and bright colors can add energy and vibrancy. Choose a painting that speaks to you and reflects your personal style.

Nature-inspired paintings are a popular choice for boho bathrooms, as they can add a sense of tranquility and bring the outdoors in. Paintings of reptiles, flowers, or landscapes are all good options. Abstract art can also fit the boho aesthetic, with its emphasis on texture and organic shapes.

Once you've chosen a painting, you need to figure out how to display it in your bathroom. A large painting can be the focal point of the room, while a small painting can be part of a gallery wall. You could also lean a painting on a shelf or prop it up on a windowsill.


3. Vintage Accents

Incorporating vintage accents into your boho bathroom décor is a great way to add character and charm. Vintage items have a unique quality and history that can make your bathroom feel more personalized and special.

In my journey to find distinctive pieces, I've often roamed local antique stores, immersing myself in the tales of yesteryears that each item carries.

Vintage décor pieces like raven art can really help transform your bathroom.

Here are some vintage accent ideas to consider:

Antique bottles - Old bottles come in a range of sizes and colors and can be used to store items like bath salts or cotton balls. They can be displayed on a shelf or windowsill and will add a touch of vintage charm to your bathroom.

Apothecary jars - These glass jars were once used in pharmacies to store herbs and other medicinal ingredients. They can be repurposed to store items like bath salts, soaps, or cotton balls, and look great on a bathroom counter or shelf.

Vintage mirrors - A vintage mirror can add character to your bathroom and also be functional. Look for a unique shape or ornate frame to add visual interest.

When sourcing vintage or cottagecore art for your bathroom décor, try visiting local antique stores or flea markets. Etsy can also be great resources for finding vintage items. When incorporating vintage accents, make sure they fit with the overall aesthetic of your bathroom and don't overwhelm the space. A few carefully chosen pieces can make a big impact.


4. Textured Towels

Adding textured towels to your boho bathroom décor is an easy way to add depth and interest to the space. Not only do they look great, but textured towels also feel more luxurious. Here are some textured towel ideas:

Turkish towels - These lightweight towels are known for their thin yet absorbent nature, making them perfect for use in the bathroom. They are also versatile and can be used as a beach or picnic blanket.

Waffle weave towels - These towels are made with a unique weaving pattern that creates a textured, waffle-like appearance. They are thick and absorbent, making them perfect for drying off after a shower or bath.

When it comes to displaying your textured towels, there are many ways to create a boho look. Try folding your towels in different ways, such as rolling them up and placing them in a basket or hanging them from a decorative ladder. You can also mix and match different textured towels to create a layered look. Just remember to keep the overall color scheme cohesive to avoid a cluttered look.


5. Colorful Rugs

Whether you're looking to improve your apartment aesthetic, or just looking to spruce up your bathroom, adding a colorful rug to your boho bathroom décor can add warmth, texture, and a pop of color to your space. Here are some colorful rug ideas:

Moroccan rugs - These rugs are known for their vibrant colors, bold patterns, and plush texture. They are often made with natural materials such as wool or cotton and can add a touch of bohemian flair to your bathroom.

Persian rugs - These rugs are known for their intricate designs and rich colors, and they can add a touch of luxury to your bathroom. They are often made with high-quality materials such as silk or wool and can last for generations.

To style your colorful rug, place it in front of your sink or bathtub or layering it on top of another rug or mat. You can also mix and match different patterns and textures to create a layered look.


6. Natural Materials


A key element of bohemian style is the use of natural materials. Incorporating these materials into your bathroom décor can create a calming and earthy atmosphere, while also adding texture and interest. Here are some natural materials to incorporating into your boho bathroom:

Wood - Wooden elements can add warmth and character to your bathroom. Add a wooden vanity or mirror frame to create a rustic look.

Stone - Adding stone accents can create a spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom. Add a stone vase, soap dispenser or toothbrush holder to your vanity. You can also incorporate natural stone tiles or pebble flooring for a unique look.

Bamboo - Bamboo is a sustainable and versatile material that can be used in many ways in your bathroom. Try adding bamboo shelving, a bamboo bath mat, or a bamboo tissue box cover.

For a minimalist boho look, stick to a few key natural elements, while for a more eclectic look, mix and match different materials for a layered effect.


7. Boho Shower Curtains

Boho shower curtains can be another great way to add a pop of color and personality to your bathroom décor. There are many different types of shower curtains that fit the boho aesthetic, such as macrame, tassel, or even a bold patterned fabric.

If you have a small bathroom, consider a light-colored or sheer boho shower curtain to help open up the space. If you have a larger bathroom, you can go for a bold and colorful boho shower curtain to create a statement piece in the room. Adding a shower liner can also help protect your curtain from water damage and extend its lifespan.

When it comes to incorporating your boho shower curtain into your décor, pair it with other boho elements such as textured towels or a colorful rug as mentioned previously. You can also use the shower curtain as inspiration for the rest of your bathroom décor, such as choosing complementary wall colors or adding coordinating accessories. With a little creativity, a boho shower curtain can be a stylish and fun addition to any bathroom.


8. Wicker Baskets

Wicker baskets are a perfect addition to any bohemian bathroom décor. Not only do they add a touch of natural texture, but they're also functional for storage and organization. Wicker baskets come in many different shapes, sizes, and styles, so you're sure to find one that fits your bathroom's aesthetic.

One way to incorporate wicker baskets into your bathroom décor is by using them as storage for towels, toilet paper, or toiletries. They can be placed on shelves or under the sink for easy access. If you have a larger basket, you can even use it to store rolled-up bath towels or display plants.

Another way to use wicker baskets in your bathroom décor is as a decorative piece. A small wicker basket can be used to hold small items like soaps or a collection of seashells. A larger basket can be filled with plants or used as a laundry hamper.

When choosing wicker baskets for your bathroom décor, think about the size and shape that will best fit your space. Seagrass baskets are perfect for a beachy, natural look, while rattan baskets add a touch of bohemian elegance. Don't be afraid to mix and match different styles and sizes to create a unique and personalized look.

A minimalist boho bathroom can be achieved by focusing on simplicity and natural elements. The key is to create a space that feels open and airy while still maintaining the boho aesthetic. To achieve this look, use a neutral color palette such as white, beige, or gray. This will create a clean, minimalistic backdrop that allows the natural elements to stand out.

When it comes to natural elements, focus on using a few statement pieces such as a wooden stool, a woven rug, or a botanical painting print. These pieces will add warmth and texture to the space without overwhelming it. Additionally, try using plants as a way to bring nature indoors and add a pop of greenery.

In a minimalist boho bathroom, less is often more. Choose simple, organic shapes for your décor and avoid cluttering the space with too many items. Instead, opt for a few key pieces that make a statement, such as a large mirror or a unique light fixture. By keeping the space simple and uncluttered, you can create a calm and relaxing atmosphere that still embodies the boho spirit.



Creating a boho bathroom is all about incorporating natural elements, adding color and texture, and embracing a relaxed, eclectic aesthetic. From plants and paintings to vintage accents and wicker baskets, there are many ways to achieve a boho look in your bathroom. And if you're feeling creative, don't be afraid to tackle some of the DIY projects that I suggested.

Remember that boho style is all about expressing yourself and creating a space that feels comfortable and inviting. So, have fun with it! Mix and match different elements to create a unique boho bathroom that reflects your personal style.

Whether you prefer a more minimalist approach or want to go all out with bold patterns and colors, there are endless possibilities when it comes to boho bathroom décor.
