13+ Inspiration of Van Life Hippie Bohemian Style Ideas

RV Renovations can be a fun project to do but it’s also a big responsibility.

I’ve seen some poorly done renovations turn into nightmare scenarios that will cost you money, time, and stress.

Hippie Bohemian Style or Boho style renovations is no exception. So, don’t let this happen to you. To give you a leg up, here’s an idea of a few ways to get things started.

But before getting directly into the renovation ideas, first, let us discuss things in detail.

What Is Bohemian Style?

Bohemian design is a representation of the artistry of those who appreciate the texture, patterns, colors, and motifs of nature.

Many people take a more is more approach, but you can do bohemian however you want.

The key is mixing, matching, and exploring; incorporating trinkets from your travels; and crafting a comfortable and meaningful space.

Is Bohemian Style Layered?

There are layers to the marriage of bright patterns or a combination of neutral textiles.

Think blankets thrown over a ladder against a wall, a beaded pendant hanging from a wooden beam, and patterned rugs over reclaimed floors.

You don’t have to stop with just one item. They don’t have to match if you use as many as you want.

What Can I Use in Boho Style?

A bohemian style mixes cultures and artistic expressions into an eclectic style with a focus on organic elements and nature.

It is highly encouraged to mix patterns, metals, woods, materials, animal hides, and trinkets from your travels when creating a bohemian-style space.

One of the first things that many RVers do is to remove the built-in dining booth, which opens up a lot more potential for the space.

Fresh paint, new furniture, and touches like a colorful rug made this an inviting space for Amy and her two kids to call home, as well as opened up much more potential for the space.

The space in this Australian caravan is utilized so well, that you’d never believe this camper is just 18 feet long.

Bohemian 5th Wheel

A 2006 Heartland Bighorn RV, a 5th wheel travel trailer, was transformed from a basic RV into their own bohemian tiny home, thanks to this camper renovation idea from Tiny House Talk.

There is plenty of room for the couple and their growing family in this RV since it includes a slide-out.

The combination of warmer colors such as shades of olive green, mustard, cognac yellow, and rusty oranges is something we love about this particular design.

Boho Chic Becomes Family Retreat

A 2010 Jayco camper has been turned into a retreat large enough for a family of 5 by a chic camper remodel from Apartment Therapy.

With an interior full of brown, the family knew they wanted to liven up the space and create an updated boho look.

After hiring a contractor to take care of the big jobs, the next step was to buy new bedding, purchase new cushions, and add some bohemian touches to complete the look.

The total cost of the project was close to $1,700, which makes this a great budget-friendly remodel.
