Boho-Chic Bedroom With Desert Colors

Pops of pink, coral and yellow abound in this boho-chic girl's room, capturing the vibrant colors of the Arizona desert at sunset. Shiplap walls, wood floors and neutral curtains ensure that the space will grow with the child.

Daybed Features Mixed Patterns

On the daybed, patterned pillows and throws play well together thanks to their similar shapes and colors. The resulting design is visually interesting, without distracting from sleep.

Woven Dreamcatcher, Watercolor Wall Art

A deamcatcher hangs over the bed, its blue and pink tassels echoing the colors in the throw pillows. Two watercolor cactuses custom-made by designer Joanna Gick further draw the beauty of the desert inside.

Coral Nightstands For Storage

On either end of the bed, coral-colored nightstands keep picture books within arm's reach. A stuffed flamingo complements the piece, and makes a snuggly companion for reading. 

Layers of Texture

For a truly bohemian look, the designers layered the space with faux-fur pillows, cotton linens and an area rug. Not only do these accents keep the room soft, but they can also be switched out as the child grows older.

Gilded Gallery Wall

Matching gold frames add a touch of sparkle to the walls, as well as create cohesion among the artwork. With wire diamonds and unicorn accents in between, the display is equal parts chic and sweet.

Colorful, Creative Corner

A pink desk and wishbone-style chair provide a workspace for the little girl, giving her room to write or draw. Art on all sides heightens the space and encourages creativity.

Swing Chair With Southwestern Flair

A swing chair is a fun addition to the room, with plenty of pillows for comfy reading. The cactus design and geometric prints give the corner southwestern flair, nodding to the landscape just outside the little girl's window.
