Did I leave my Boho Rainbow classroom decor theme up longer than was absolutely necessary? Yes, I did. This theme brightened my office THE MINUTE I put everything up. If you’re looking for a happy, welcoming, bright theme, then you need to put your eyes on this one.
Boho Rainbow is a delightful combination of navy blue and white stripes, light blue patterns, white artsy dots on a golden yellow background, white polka dots on a beige-gray background, and a coral pink linen pattern. It’s decadent without being over the top, cozy without being too cutesy.
So let’s dive in and get our Boho Rainbow on!

How to decorate a Boho Rainbow classroom
Initially, I worried that accessorizing my Boho Rainbow theme would be difficult. After all, the colors are unique, especially the coral pink, beige-gray, and golden yellow colors. But I needn’t have worried, and neither should you. I think because the colors are unique, they are easier to work with.
For example, peep your eyes on the floral arrangements on my desk. Next to them is a paint-splattered pink jar. It’s a pink-meets-amber-meets-rose-gold deal, and while I bought it to pair with my Festive Farmhouse classroom decor theme, it worked PERFECTLY here! I was so excited!!! (It’s still sitting on my desk, even as I write this post.)
Instead of trying to match book bins, trays, and tubs exactly, the theme looks just as good with complementary or “close-enough” colors. So I used light pink and dark coral organizers, along with mint green and teal organizers, too. There’s just enough quirk to this color scheme to give you the breathing room you need to decorate your classroom how YOU want.
Here’s a quick rundown of Boho Rainbow classroom decor pieces I found helpful:
- Wood grain bulletin board paper (I found mine on Amazon)
- Polka dot bulletin board border (I found it in the Target Dollar Bin a few years ago – notice the colors don’t match exactly – like I said, this is a flexible theme that looks good no matter what!)
- Anything in pastel pinks, blues, and greens Anything in navy blue, golden yellow (or amber/rose gold), white, or beige-gray
If you have trouble finding what you want, keep an eye out for tropical accessories. Even though Boho Rainbow is not a tropical theme, light blues/greens/pinks/corals pair well with this theme.
Classroom organization ideas
Let’s talk classroom organization. There are countless ways to organize your classroom using labels from this bundle. The rundown:
- Rolling cart labels that are pre-filled AND text editable
- Book bin labels. I ABSOLUTELY GEEK OUT on these because they come in square shapes and rectangular shapes. So basically you can use them to label the front or back of standard book bins OR you can use them on narrower book bins (think magazine holders).
- Desk name plates that can easily double as labels on bins, tubs, and other organizers.
- Circle tags that are also great as labels on bulkier storage bins or as bunting for decor (bunting also comes in a few of the other products). For even bigger bins, check out the table numbers. They’re sizable and text editable.
It happened by mistake, but when I created the Daily Schedule Cards headers, I realized they’d look super-cute as little postcards for school mail. The navy blue and white diagonal stripe looks like old-school Air Mail, if you keep your imagination flexible. If you’d like to use these as little postcards, I suggest doing the following:
Open the text editable file for the daily schedule cards headers. 2. Duplicate the slides so that you have at least four of each pattern you’d like to use for class notes. 3. Select File —> Print —> Select the pages of the pattern(s) you want to print —> Select Layout and 4 to a page.
Voila! You have mini notecards to use as classroom messages. You could also use them to write messages to other students in the building or to say thanks to staff members. For this activity, I’d write on the the rainbow-free side. If students are using pencil, printing on regular copy paper should be just fine. If students will use pens or if the notecards will pass through several hands, then consider printing on cardstock.
