The Bohemian design revolution started in the nineteenth century. It described the lifestyle of underprivileged artists, musicians and writers living in Europe at that time. Not to be confused with the hippie lifestyle, people who practice the Bohemian way of life simply prefer anything that caters to their authentic taste: a little shabby chic, a little eclectic, a little bit of anything.
Driven by a non-conformist attitude, their sense of style doesn’t really care about trends and conventional interior design rules but rather, it celebrates creative freedom and spirituality.
Bohemians have unorthodox societal and political viewpoints. They are often labeled as artistic extremists proclaiming the virtues of love, frugality and freedom, not to mention the courage to be different. Unfortunately, Bohemians are a dying breed and are currently being replaced by the humble bragging hipsters. Nevertheless, a Bohemian’s style is eternal.
I always dreamed of having a personal Bohemian room where I can lay down, chill and meditate. A getaway room, if you must. Somewhere I can play My Morning Jacket at the highest volume and escape reality for a while, try some yoga positions and think about the good times.
I currently live in an apartment where any form of renovation is prohibited so the only thing I can do right now is make a short checklist of things I want to put in my future Bohemian room. I found these cool products from Dot & Bo. They have a huge array of home and design goodies, and I believe you should check it out too. Plus they like giving away big discounts so, that’s a bonus for you.
What’s your dream getaway room like?
