There has been constant discussion in both the interior design and fashion communities over the years about the bohemian or “boho” style. Some label is as difficult to fully achieve as the sentiments of its foundation are a collection of aged accessories that date decades, if not centuries ago. I am no historian but can tell you that the concept of Bohemian dates back all the way back to the 16th century and mixes artistic expression with culture and North African elements.
One of the reasons that make this style so enjoyable is its relaxed feel and inviting nature. There are no decoratives that look as if they should be on display in a museum, but casual home accessories that add both texture and comfort. It’s more than an eclectic style, but one that mixes world travel (or the idea of traveling aboard) with personal accents and experiences that can range from your favorite book to antiques passed down the generations.
Should you enjoy free-spirited moments that are not confined to a specific style, try a little Bohemia in your life. Here are some pieces you might want to consider.
