What is Boho?
A brief history of Boho
Boho is short for bohemian, or the French word bohémien. Originally the term for gypsies wandering Bohemia, it later evolved to include any “starving artist” who lived a nomadic lifestyle.
More recently the boho culture existed in Greenwich Village in New York City, starting in the mid-1910s. These were free-thinking radicals who preferred informality over social structure.
After a massive revival period in the 60s and 70s, then experiencing some downtime during the 80s and 90s, boho is now back in a major way.
Today, bohemian or boho is a term we use to describe any style that takes its influence from those nomadic free spirits of generations past. The modern boho look is eclectic and incorporates ethnic and vintage pieces.
Retro Boho Decor
Many think of the bohemian style as a room filled with tons of bright color & eclectic pieces. That would be considered a more traditional form of boho, and what I would refer to as ‘eclectic boho’.
As we’ve established, boho is a style without any strict rules. Common accessories and furnishings for retro boho looks include poufs and ottomans in Moroccan or vintage 1970’s designs, as well as leather, jute, rattan, or other natural textiles.
