Eclectic, exuberant and, above all, intensely decorative, Bohemian style flourishes once more. Celebrating a new freedom of creative expression in the home; walls saturated in brilliant colour; surfaces and finishes enriched with luminous tiles, mosaic and glittering mirrors; exotic textiles hung from windows and draped over low-level sofas and divans - the Bohemian look is a vibrant cultural mix spiced with artistic flair.
This book reveals that a willingness to experiment and a taste for vitality and self expression are more important than knowledge of design when it comes to creating alternative interiors. And the look need not be costly: Bohemian style is also about creating style on a shoestring, improvising furnishings from cast-offs, and conjuring magic from the everyday.
Chapters on the history of the movement, paint techniques, walls and flooring; soft furnishings, and "found" objects; and inspirational colour photographs make this an invaluable sourcebook of creative ideas that will enable you to create your own, individual Bohemian style.
