Boho cribs are the subtle centre piece of a well styled, eclectic nursery. The bohemian theme has become very popular for nurseries due to its calming neutral tones and free spirited style.
What is Boho?
Boho or bohemian stems from the historical travellers from the region Bohemia (now known as the Czech Republic). These nomads were gypsy-like artistic creatives. The style was first revived in the 60’s and has come back with a more European twist.
The design trend is eclectic and mismatched with natural colours and textures bringing everything together.
How to Style a Boho Nursery
To style a boho nursery keep the colours and furnishings neutral, accent colours can be deep red or earthy orange. Start with the essential furnishings (crib, change table and storage) then embellish with eclectic decor to take the room from basic to bohemian-chic.
Use a range of textures like jute layered with plush floor rugs, fluffy faux sheep hide, cotton or linen crib bedding. Select furniture made with natural materials like the wooden boho crib below. Cane, rattan and wicker can be a beautiful option for shelving and extra furnishings like a rocking chair.
Elements of a Bohemian Nursery:
Cribs for a boho nursery don’t need to be fussy. Choose a practical design in natural wood or white then style it with soft linen in earthy colours or a boho canopy.
