Boho Shower Curtains Are a Thing Now
A few years ago, bohemian decor was basically a tiny offshoot of global-inspired or eclectic decor. But times have seriously changed. These days, boho decor is sort of like Justin Beiber — it’s taken over the design world.
We've been noticing the trend of more and more bohemian-inspired shower curtains popping up in magazines and design blogs, so it's no surprise that it has now made its way into our bathrooms. As a self-proclaimed boho addict, this is a trend I can seriously get behind.
If you're ready to give "bathroom boho" a shot, we've rounded up some of our favorite shower curtain finds to help you get started.
I'm not sure how this keeps happening, but each time Nate Berkus releases a new collection at Target, all I can think about is emptying my entire bank account so I can buy each and every piece. This batik shower curtain is no exception. The dark color would look fab in an all-white bathroom, and the graphic pattern is a great jumping off point if you're looking to add more texture to your space.
Our Pick: Nate Berkus Batik Shower Curtain, Target, $17.50
Boho 101: add tassels (or pompoms!) to any item for an immediate bohemian-style makeover. This gorgeous shower curtain is covered in adorable black contrasting tassels all the way around. The tribal pattern is a great contrast, and the white base color means that it will work with most color schemes.
Our Pick: Diamanta Striped Shower Curtain, Anthropologie, $118
Fab fringe edging and a pretty pink color make this shower curtain a great choice for a more feminine space. The geometric pattern is subdued, allowing the pink to shine, but it still provides a great contrast with a darker color. The cotton fabric (as opposed to some synthetic curtains) also allows light to shine through if you have a window in your bathroom.
Our Pick: 4040 Locust Toures Shower Curtain, Urban Outfitters, $49
This shower curtain screams boho with its gorgeous strip of crocheted detail at the bottom. And of course, there are also loads of tassels to seal the boho vibe. It feels like it's straight from the 70s (and that’s a good thing as far as I’m concerned). The ivory color allows you to either let it blend into the background (with a lighter color palette), or have it stand out against a darker color scheme.
Our Pick: Plum & Bow Kelsi Crochet Shower Curtain, Urban Outfitters, $79
A boho space often incorporates plants and natural elements, which is why I loved this watercolor palm-inspired shower curtain from The Aestate. If you generally kill any plant that comes within 10 feet of you (guilty as charged), this is the perfect way to get some greenery into your home.
Our Pick: Beverly II Shower Curtain, Society6, $68
I really love this sweet and delicate looking pintuck shower curtain. This one is a nod to all the interesting textures and fabrics that you see a lot in boho spaces. It would look great if you were looking to create a white-on-white space in your bathroom but still want to make sure that your space has some texture.
Our Pick: Pintuck Shower Curtain, PBteen, $59
If you can’t quite afford the investment that a traditional Moroccan boucherouite rug requires, this is the perfect shower curtain for you. The pattern on this curtain mimics what you might find on one of these trendy rugs but at a fraction of the price. A simple black-and-white color scheme means that you can easily work this into almost any palette.
Our Pick: Magical Thinking Printed Boucherouite Shower Curtain, Urban Outfitters, $39
Bold With Ikat
For a more colorful option, consider this Ikat-inspired shower curtain. With a variety of patterns and colors, this curtain echoes the gorgeous, collected textiles that you tend to see in boho homes and spaces. This is a great choice if you’ve been yearning to go bold in your bathroom but weren't quite sure how to do it.
Our Pick: Laurel Home Green Ikat Shower Curtain, Overstock.com, $101.99
If you’re not necessarily interested in doing the extra work that tassels or pompoms on your shower curtains might require (hand washing in the laundry), then why not choose a simple tassel pattern instead? John Robshaw was one of the pioneers of the entire boho movement with his show-stopping international textiles, so you can’t go wrong with a piece from him. This simple curtain comes in several colors, depending on what look you’re going for in your bathroom.
Our Pick: John Robshaw Iswar Shower Curtain, Gracious Home, $125
A collection of flea market art is hung to create a gallery effect and adds so much personality to a space. This bright and airy room has huge pops of indigo, turquoise and hot pink that helps the eye bounce around the room, creating a bright color layer. The large fig tree acts as a sculpture and grounds the corner of the room.
A casual breakfast nook is styled very naturally as if someone was just there. The earthiness of the rustic table and breadboards is contrasted with the bright green vinyl chairs and graphic mid-century wine rack. A breakfast nook is the perfect place to add a small playful art vignette while you sip your morning coffee.
A great mix of styles in this vignette is grounded with natural elements and a bright color scheme. A vintage console acts as storage and a bar and is made less serious with a whimsical flea market dog portrait and a modern white metal lamp. The branch leaning in acts like an organic sculpture and brings life into this vignette.
This dining room/workspace is kept neutral and light while the pop of the antique Chinese indigo rug grounds the space and creates the color story. The tablescape is styled with natural elements: a fig branch clipped from the yard, some antlers and beautiful bronze candelabra. This room is a great eat/workspace, which adds function to a typically less used dining room.
A bedroom is the perfect place to use some restraint with color and styling. Creating a quiet space visually helps quiet the mind, too. The headboard is made simply by wrapping batting and then fabric around a large inexpensive piece of plywood and using a staple gun to attach it. The piece is trimmed it out with aged brass upholstery nails to tie in with the brass detailing on the nightstand.
This eclectic mix of styles is a great combination of contrasting shapes, colors and tones. The large graphic vintage Swiss flag is the focal point and is balanced out by an organically shaped cowhide rug on the floor. The combination of square and round in the space looks eclectic, but not junky. The space is grounded with a vintage modern navy sofa that creates a cool toned color story that is balanced out with the warm tones of the wood and leather.
The wall above the mantel is the focal point in this living room. The composition of art is balanced, yet feels collected over time. Trying to create a perfect symmetrical composition with different shapes and sizes can make a collection look stiff. Go for a more organic composition that creates a sculpture-like shape on the wall to look more interesting and give more personality to the room.
