3 Ways to Decorate Your Tent for the Ultimate Glamping Experience
When it comes to camping, everyone has a different idea of what it means to “rough it.” While tent decorating might not be on the minds of the all-in outdoor enthusiasts, a little glamping makes that hard, hard ground so much more fun. Just because you want to reconnect with nature doesn’t mean you have to leave your throw pillows, cute lighting and colorful seating at home. With the right merch, you can make your next camping experience totally fun and fab. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to rough it in the great outdoors without, you know, really roughing it. Scroll on to see how we’d style the ultimate glamping tent for the boho-chic camper, the minimalist and the preppy campsite.
HOW TO DECORATE A BOHO-CHIC TENT
The boho-chic look was practically made for nature lovers: Bring in textures in a big way with a cozy sheepskin, a leather pouf and a woven rug to help keep the dirt under control. Maybe you can’t hang the hammock inside the tent, but you could find a couple of trees nearby or use a freestanding hammock stand to give yourself the perfect chill space. Bring in glam accents with a copper lantern and a gold garland, then get ready to roast those s’mores in style with a cuddly throw blanket and plenty of pillows.

HOW TO DECORATE A MINIMALIST TENT
True, the teepee here is intended for kids, but you could easily DIY a similar look for a more grown-up camping experience. Use a graphic basket as storage for your card games (in gold, obvi), notebooks full of camping notes and maybe a sneaky flask of whiskey for that hot chocolate. Lanterns can provide plenty of candlelight while you stay warm with a trendy sleeping bag and typography throw pillows.

HOW TO DECORATE A PREPPY TENT
This is what it looks like when the prep-style glamper goes camping: pink stripes, pineapple everything and plenty of glam accessories. Whether you’re setting up your tent on the beach or in your backyard, you can’t go wrong with a tropical theme. Keep the party going with a waterproof speaker, battery-powered string lights and a picnic basket full of plastic pink goblets. Use a camp stool as seating around the fire, or set up a tray full of tasty drinks and snacks.
