I think I've changed the window coverings about a dozen times in my home (and I've only lived here 6 months!). Window coverings can be practically anything that hangs - that's the beauty of decorating boho! I'm sharing some of the most creative window coverings below! See what works for you!

Roll up bamboo shades work with any style! For a natural look, leave it as is and for a more formal look layer it with a floor length drape. For more texture, try a matchstick version like this one! Or go really wild and paint it! These are definitely on my list for my junaglow by the river!
Now this is a fun one. Measure the length of the curtain rod to the floor. Take your old scarves and stitch them together. Hang with curtain ring clips or leave enough space to slip a rod through the top. Voila, scarf curtains. Super unique and colorful. Mix and match your patterns for a more bohemian look!
The word toran is originally associated with sacred gateways in the Hinduism culture. Traditionally, torans are hung between doorways to welcome the gods and people. I love how they look hanging over doors and windows. Their short length makes them perfect for a kitchen window. Add a shear curtain behind or let it shine on its own!
This is a fun, no sew project. Grab an inexpensive lightweight drop cloth and tie dye it or paint it. Try this indigo tie dye making kit and see what turns out! If tie dye isn't your thing, try stencilling on creating your own designs with painters tape.
This is probably the most versatile covering of them all - you can wear it, drape it and hang it. Vintage piano shawls are super stylish and add old-world bohemian charm to any space! For an elegant look choose white lace, for a bolder look, go dark with colour accents like this antique one!
How fun is this one?! Hammocks aren't just for lounging, toss it up on a wall or window! They come in some pretty gorgeous patterns which makes for a perfect valance. Take an old hammock and hang it horizontal or vertical. Leave the strings dangling for extra charm. This is great for a game room, sunroom or kids' room.
If you're into design and crafts you're bound to have fabric strips laying around. Take those and turn them into curtains. Use these rod clips to hang them. Don't worry about the fabric textures being different, thats the point! For the flowy look, make sure all of your fabric is sheer and light!.
This type of covering is perfect for a white walled room. Take a vintage kantha quilt or throw and hang it on both sides of the window (or door frame). If you want to get super fancy, hang a tassel trim in the middle. This is sure to brighten up any room. This is perfect for the renter that loves colour, but can't paint!
