I’ve been on a hunt for the perfect boho wallpaper for a couple of rooms in our house. I tend to get a little stressy with these kinds of things because I don’t want to regret my decision.
Luckily, these days a lot of wallpaper is removable and reusable, so it doesn’t need to be a big commitment, but you’re still in the mindset of designing cohesively, so I generally think of them as somewhat permanent. Commence stress.
I’m typically not a huge fan of excessive repeating patterns, but they’re not out of the question if they hit that sweet spot.
Assuming that I’m not the only Type A boho kid out there (we can’t all be carefree… can we? Is it just me?) I wanted to make a list of really great wallpapers that suit the look but aren’t all flowers and flourishes.
Boho, not Little House on the Prairie (no offense). I had to dig deep to find these unique beauties, so I hope they inspire!
(Note: Most of these wallpapers are removable and reusable, but please check details for what suits your needs.)
Earthy Brown Ombré
The more I looked at this earth-toned gradient, the more I grew to really love it. The layered progression of colors is right up my alley, and I appreciate how it’s got intentional design, without having an actual subject to draw your eye and distract.
Dark Green Abstract
This bold mural grabbed my attention immediately. Its dramatic size adds an element of grandeur to the room, while the large scale somehow draws my eye to the rest of the decor in the room instead.
Vintage Tropical Landscape
I adore this tropical landscape wallpaper. I love the idea of an accent wall and was instantly immersed in this vintage jungle scene. It would be so easy to design around. Now to convince the boyfriend…
Smudged Ink Herringbone
The imperfection in this smudged herringbone design makes me happy. It’s a little busy, but something about it is still calm, like it’s been fingerpainted in an art studio by someone who was taking deep breaths on a rainy day.
Well, I’ve been a fan of Moroccan styling for as long as I can remember. So this one is a win. A repeating pattern, yes, but like I said… it’s okay if it hits that sweet spot.
I’m not in love with how repetitive this looks, but I do love a nice darker-toned room. Deep blues and greens on the wall somehow feels like a weighted blanket, and I’m here for the leafy vibe.
This scalloped design has a little more activity, but I had to include it because I feel like the consistency of the activity would be fun to decorate around. Rich solid colors would compliment this wonderfully.
Diamond Mud Cloth
The tradition of mud-dyed cloth is so beautiful, and the depth of color on this mud-cloth effect wallpaper is just lovely. It feels organic and comforting.
Art Deco Scales
Personally, I feel like a whole room of this could be a bit much, but to each their own. I think it would be a fantastic accent wall, and an opportunity to connect with accents within the room.
Geometric Floral Balance
The contrast in this wallpaper gets my creativity wheels a-turnin’. It would be a great opportunity to connect with the furniture and decor in your room, and the floral accent adds a botanical element that isn’t tiring.
Last but definitely not least, this stunning mural wallpaper that manages to make your room feel oversized. I love it. The textured appearance, the colors, the offset abstract design, everything about it. One more thing to somehow work into conversation with the boyfriend…
I would love to see pics if you purchase any of these! Please always feel free to share, so we can revel in the glow of a beautiful environment together.
Don’t forget to comment, I’m curious to know your thoughts!
Drink water, and be well.
