Nowadays when people think about bohemian style of interior décor they usually think of plants, vibrant colours, and abstract designs merged with a few traditional ones. This is a rather smaller part of the bigger picture. Bohemian is not just a type of design theme, it is a lifestyle. Emerged in the early 19th century in cities such as Paris, London, and New York, the nomenclature of this style came through the mischaracterisation of people from the Romani people. These artists wanted to break free from the traditional norms of the world and give wings to their creative imagination. Since they could only afford to live in the lesser lavish areas of the city, they started to implement their artistic thoughts to wherever they resided. The outcome? A culture that won everybody’s hearts with its quaint unique design elements. You could almost imagine John Lennon sitting in one of these rooms with a bohemian vibe and creating the greatest classic of all time- Imagine.
Thus, the Boho style would have a charming feel to it with its vibrant patterns, abstract designs and out-of-the-box visual appeal. Many art and décor connoisseurs further gave it a new form by adding their own touch of eccentric and cultural patterns to their décor styles.
