Budget Room: Boho and Zen Bedroom

Although white is going nowhere (nor will it ever), the warmer tones on the color wheel are creeping into design in a very heavy way right now and we are very into it. We aren’t talking bright yellows, oranges, and reds. Instead, it is mustards, siennas, and rusts. They are slightly more saturated, moody and subtle than their sister colors and even more stylish. Dare we even say that we are into orange? Well, maybe when it’s referred to as Sienna – big difference. So, we decided to pull together a bedroom retreat filled with said warmer colors, lots of texture and a dose of graphic elements to help modernize it and keep it from feeling too hippie. Let’s get into it.

You might be asking yourself, how do boho and zen work in the same space? Well for our 5k version we brought the two together through layers of textiles mixed with the more zen elements like the paper lantern and rattan table lamp on the dresser. The washed linens in the rust and blush tones were our starting place for this first version and we echoed the tonal palette throughout with the mustard velvet ottoman and throw as well as the tonal wood varieties. Speaking of wood, we peppered it around the room in the nightstands, the wood dresser as well as the wood tray and that leaning blanket mirror which we have in the corner. We paired the mirror with the mustard velvet ottoman and the Noguchi inspired floor lamp to create the ultimate lounge area. But if an ottoman area isn’t for you then you could always swap it out for a velvet armchair. The look is relaxed and layered while still feeling refined and inviting.

For this next version, we were able to get the price down by almost 2k. The main pieces that were swapped out are the dresser, mirror, bed and linens. But, we have to say, we might actually like this version better. The color of the linens is a bit more toned down and the accessories are more tonal as well. We also are suggesting a paint color for these looks which is a very soft blush tone. The room would totally work without any paint on the walls but if you can handle the color then this soft tone is a great option.

Last but not least our third version comes in at just under 2k, which is pretty good due to how similar it looks to the first one. To get the price down we swapped out the more expensive wood and leather nightstands for these simple metal triangle tables as well as the lamps that are on top of them. Although the lamps are a pretty good look alike to the originals they are less than half the price. The dresser is also slightly smaller but has the same look and feel of the first two. Last but not least we swapped out the velvet ottoman for this version that is a bit smaller and doesn’t have any feet on it.

Let us know if you have any questions on any of the pieces, and if you think you are into the warmer color trend that we are seeing a lot of currently.

  1. I LOVE the wall color and the mustard ottoman. This makes me want to paint something. 🙂

  2. Current sale pricing on Urban Outfitters items:
    Dresser (look 2) – now $299, reduced from $499
    Nightstand (looks 1 and 2) – now $179, reduced from $198
    Nightstands (look 3) – now $34, reduced from $39

    I don’t know how long these sales will go for (and I swear, I don’t work for Urban Outfitters), but I wanted to post in case anyone wants to buy and needs a nudge.

    1. Thanks for the call out on the pricing. Get them while you can! xx

  3. I LOVE that round pillow and all the versions I’ve seen of it! I just might splurge!

    Also, I have a housekeeping/editing comment. Almost every single post’s first paragraph ends with “Let’s get into it.” It’s getting almost comical.

    Love you guys!

    1. Also in the 1st paragraph is “we are very into it.” Ha! I’m into it too though, really! 😉

  4. I’m SO happy color is coming back!! Hallelujah! 😁😁 I do love this palette you have put together.

  5. Both the ottomans are from Australia and New Zealand. Any similar ones in US? Looking for something similar!

  6. I love the blush/rust color combination!! Rusty red is my favorite color, but I tend to use it in my living room more than my bedroom, so it’s interesting to see it in a bedroom. Combined with blush, it has a soft and warm feel.

  7. Just a quick note-that dresser listed for $499 in your $2,932 sketch is now $100 off! I just went there for that and was pleasantly surprised!

  8. I am ALL ABOUT some mustard and rust and earthy tones! They are my faves, and my home is filled with them. 🙂 Glad to see my house will be “trendy” now haha!

  9. Love the paint color with everything. Unfortuately, “blush” translates to “pink” for my roomie and that is a no-go. Might get away with the sheets . . .

  10. Please consider how often you send out emails. A weekly email would be preferable to an email for every post (especially given how frequently you post). I certainly don’t want to unsubscribe, because I love your content and I get that having more subscribers probably helps you keep a roof over your head and children fed. I really do want to support you (and I say this as someone who isn’t subscribed to any other newsletters/company emails, etc), but if emails come too frequently they feel spam-y.

    1. I actually like the daily emails. Perhaps you could unsubscribe and visit daily instead? You certainly don’t need an email from Emily to view the content. 🙂

    2. If you hit unsubscribe, they have an option to go weekly instead.

  11. I like the boho/zen vibe here but I just can’t get my head around this *much* warm color. I DO like a small dash of mustard and rust (and have it) along with my white/wood/black/beige base with green and blue as the major color players. A little dash of them set off the cooler colors and liven everything up without making my quiet house too energetic. The warmth of wood tones is enough for me! I can’t wait till I am allowed to get rid of our nice sheets in sort of a gold-tan, that looked fine in their particular dark little room with burgundy carpet in our last house, and just kill me in our new bright and spacious airy master. I want cool and fresh.

  12. I LOVE that round pillow and all the versions I’ve seen of it! I just might splurge!

    Also, I have a housekeeping/editing comment. Almost every single post’s first paragraph ends with “Let’s get into it.” It’s getting almost comical.

    Love you guys!

  14. the rug gets terrible reviews. It would be nice to see some higher end options. And please note if you are personally recommending something because that would be far more interesting to me than just a random web image grab.
