Boho Shower Curtains Are a Thing Now

Fringe, crochet and Moroccan-inspired patterns have taken over these bathroom beauties. And we love it.

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.

Beautiful Batik

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.

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.

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.

Creative Crochet

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.

Pretty Palms

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.

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,, $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.

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.

Branches have a lot of bang for their buck when styling a room. In pruning season they are cheap, abundant, last well over a week and make a huge impact in a space. Next time you want flowers to dress a room, consider branches.

The small sunroom is given a burst of color and pattern with the vintage-inspired carpet and '50s vinyl chairs. Simple sheers have been added to the entryway for privacy and separation.

A collection of beautiful things is styled with balance and contrast. The white and blue vases and objects feel collected over time and the composition is not symmetrical, yet completely balanced. Stacks of books ground each shelf, but by staggering them it creates visual balance.

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 collection of pretty white pottery and rocks on this vignette is quickly contrasted by a leaning flea market painting and industrial metal stencil. A large bundle of wild flowers is a very cheap and easy way to utilize a large vessel. It doesn't always have to be roses. Go for the weeds.

This youthful vignette is created by pairing a white lacquer modern piece with a collection of vintage school maps, globes and ephemera. The turquoise and red color palette is bold, fresh and exciting. The metal chair, typically used outside, brings in an extra dose of whimsy.

This eclectic collection of vintage objects is made cohesive with a color palette of black, white and navy. The vintage light hangs haphazardly giving off a very effortless style, and the collection of leaning art is both relaxed, yet intentional.

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.

A large painting makes a statement and is balanced out with a large vintage chandelier that is big, but clear so not block the light source. The table is styled naturally in a 'pre-party' that gives an unfussy vibe to the dining room.

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 is a great example of a styled shot that looks effortless. This artist workspace is comfortable and unpretentious, propped with a vintage Polaroid camera and sculptural flowers in a mug. Remember, as long as it holds water, it can hold flowers. It doesn't always have to be a vase.

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 white lacquer sideboard adds modernity and freshness to the vintage chairs and antique farm table. A mood board is created with navy linen over a large corkboard and adds interest and energy into the room while still being functional for the creative owner.

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.

A neutral color palette of whites, blacks and woods creates a relaxing sunny office.
