Have you ever scrolled through instagram or tumblr and thought, “wow, that’s really nice bedroom!” Chances are, you’re looking at a Bohemian Bedroom. This design is especially popular among teens or just really anyone with eccentric style.
According Houzz Australia Contributor – Jane Dunn, defining “bohemian” (boho) as an interior style is really attempting to label something that can’t be labeled. So, it is more of a personal style and varies; depending really on one’s personal taste.
It has elements of Shabby Chic and eclecticism, mixed with an artistic and theatrical flamboyance that has nothing to do with trends. Boho is witty, whimsical and highly reflective of the mind and lifestyle of the person who embraces it. It is playful and fun. In its way it is an anti style, but at its heart is a love of art, color, contrasts, creativity, travel, adventure, the past and, above all, freedom from convention.
Decorating with a Bohemian flair is basically an expression of your freedom, creativity and style in one. It could also be a representation of your experiences, feelings and memories.
