King size bohemian bedding is a free-form style that incorporates aspects of hippie, beatnik, gypsy and Moulin Rouge designs with a hint of shabby elegance thrown in. A bohemian bedroom reflects this eccentric mix with lush fabrics, the deepest tones, and elements that you can find in an authentic gypsy car, a brothel, a 1960s Greenwich Village loft or attic of a starving artist. Together, they combine in an eclectic, creative and often sumptuous manner that is both attractive and unconventional.
Pull a band of Madras on your bed, or hang one on the wall. Choose a pattern similar to an Indian sari. Add a gypsy touch with velvet cushions, purple or burgundy. Choose dark green or black bedding. Dress the windows in floor-length brocade or velvet draperies in layers under a valance in woolen or satin quilted fancy finish and adorned with gold tassels on the rope. Hang a curtain of beads on the door of your closet. Choose lampshades adorned with pearls and small bells to continue the theme.
Scatter candles around the room. Couple with incense burners and a lava lamp or two. Place a love seat and harvest it at the foot of your bed. Upholstery in orange velvet to blow against the other colors in the room. Cover it with cushions. Create a conversation area with puffs or cushions on the floor. Organize a collection of album covers on the wall. Displays a collection of scarves with fringes or shawls on a shelf in the vintage cape. Add long strings of pearls to the spark.
