It is the focal point of your bedroom and one of the fastest and cheapest ways to get the bohemian look without needing to buy any extra furniture. 

For your comforter or duvet cover, look for natural, earthy tones like beige, sand, white, brown, or burnt orange. 

This creates a great neutral base for your bedroom, allowing versatility, simplicity, and longevity and providing a blank canvas for layering textures and colors through throws, pillows, and other bedding. Ensure your bedding has a relaxed feel to create that cozy boho-style bedroom vibe.
