As a counterculture, it appeared after the French Revolution. After losing their patronage from the wealthy, many artists started a nomadic lifestyle. They hadn't got too much money so they wore used clothing and lived inexpensively. In the eye of the world, they were poor, unfashionable craftsmen, but in reality, they just had their own style of living life.
They wore colorful fabrics, strange hats, their hair was long and flowing, so nothing like the usual 19th century looks. This new folk resembled the wandering gypsies, who - according to the people of this era - originated in Bohemia, hence the expression.
We are living the age of individuality, when we don't have to follow trends to be the part of the whole. We can freely express ourselves, and that makes our time the best era to live.
But we don't want to talk about hippies, that's the past. But not for the bohemian style! Moreover, it's in its glory right now and it is easily understandable.
Have a cozy hammock chair over the boho-inspired rug next to the crocheted curtains. Have a pillow fortress on the couch! Think out of the box!
Just Be You
A style of freedom and it's about you. If someone visits your home, they will identify the colorful curtains, tapestries with you, so forget about rules. Chose patterns you like and don't worry about the rug, it will match the other 5 in the room and the pattern of the wall. Express yourself!
