Bohemian style is as much about attitude as it is about looks. “In French, a 'bohémien' refers to a person with artistic interests who disregards conventional standards of behavior," says blogger Siham Mazouz of French By Design. "Boho-style decor follows the same unconventional principles."
Mazouz says that for her, "the ideal boho decor layers colors, textures and artistic, travel or repurposed objects to ultimately create, almost in a happy accident, an unconventional, colorful, quirky, and outside-of-the-box decor. It’s about repurposing the old and mixing meaningful objects gathered through your personal experience, the countries you visited or lived in, and creating from scratch a personal scene that reflects who you are, and how unique your personal experiences are. It tells your story!"
