We are all in love with the Bohemian vibe that is permeating Interior design and home wares at the moment. Although there is a fine line to be drawn between a bohemian paradise and a cluttered mess.
Essentially this look has evolved over time, some may say its a throwback to 70's chic, those some may also say the 70's was the most important design decade with it a constant source of inspiration for fashion and interior trendsetters alike.
A Bohemian is defined as socially unconventional, a hippy, avant-garde, a free spirit or an artistic person. With the groundswell of popularity for such artistic pursuits in career but also in the adoption of "hippy" fundamentals like caring about the earth and where our food comes from its no huge surprise we also starting decorating our homes this way.
Isn't the irony so beautiful too? While we are so focused on screens and the latest app to streamline our busy, busy, busy lives its a gorgeous interior style to re-connect with our surroundings. Carefully curate the spaces we inhabit and select pieces that speak to you on a personal level.
To become a interior bohemian, look at the detail and time spent to create handmade and unique pieces, proudly display books on subjects you love, burn candles that fill the room with a scent that calms and centres you, use plants in each room and get joy from their growth, layer rugs and soft furnishings because they feel amazing on your skin.
The best Bohemian spaces are layered with mementos from travels, antiques passed down and garage sale scores. The NEW bohemia en-corporates all of these elements with a few sprinkles of modernity, a little metallic sparkle or some mellennial pink to keep the whole look modern and not op-shop.
