DESIGNSIGH presents you some amazing photographs about the new coming way of living called BOHEMIAN! These days according to the ancient beliefs, many people all over the world open their minds into new way of understanding life. The things we all know till now were wrong! So this new consciousness will manifest with the understanding that God is real. It will also manifest with the understanding that you cannot live in peace if you first cannot live in peace with yourself. Finally it will manifest with the clear perception that each one’s actual needs are simpler than they have appeared, and that what has passed for need is often fear-based, generating the desire to have greater security through objects, persons, and various other kinds of external symbols. Within the Divine flow, life is not out of balance. One’s heart, infused with light, becomes attuned to an understanding of where to go next and what is needed now. Life becomes simpler.
So for that reason I want to tell ya my vision about the new Bohemian style and how I feel it! The bohemian aesthetic conjures up a romantic notion of a free-spirited yet somewhat impoverished life dedicated to art and wanderlust. Boho means finding old things. Starving artists have to scavenge and re-use other people’s castaways. Older, worn furniture has a sense of history, and the patina of tarnished metal, chippy paint, or a threadbare rug adds depth and interest. That’s what I like about it, because all this industry of manufacturing things, buying them and after a period of time throwing them away makes me mad!I really love old staff, they have spirit in them, and you can feel the energy while using them!
According to Urban Dictionary, the term “bohemians” , or artists/poets of 19th century France, were simply called such because the French incorrectly assumed that gypsy people (the correct term for gypsy would be “Romani”) came from the Kingdom of Bohemia. Oh what a world of patterns we live in. Geometric kilims, swirly suzanis, groovy ikats, fancy damasks, country florals, and an entire world of folk embroidery… human beings like some patterns. Textiles are an art all their own. As long as the colors get along, you can actually get away with mixing a lot of patterns all at once. A true bohemian needs at least one patterned textile in every room of the tent, if not a dozen.
The bohemian life is carefree. And this is supposed to be for all of us, we all should live in such a free way. As part of their rebellion against “genteel” society, bohemians felt no reason to exhibit moral or socially acceptable behavior. One participant, Houssaye, printed in his memoirs, “We were afraid of nothing and thumbed our noses at public opinion. . .The most outstanding characteristic of our Bohemian existence was our open revolt against all prejudices, I might say against all laws. We lived as if entrenched in a fortress from which we made belligerent sallies ridiculing everything.”
So have a look at the pretty pictures, to see the building blocks of the modern concept of bohemian style. I’ve come up with 6 main elements that seem to come up again and again whenever I spot something that appears decidedly bohemian in style: Bright Colors, Patterns, Aged or Antique details, Global pieces, Nomadic influences, and an overall Eclectic design. Naturally lots of these go hand in hand or overlap, but the more I looked at photos I realized that they all come in to play… keep an eye out for how many of these elements you can identify in any given photo.
Rich, bright, even jewel-tone colors to be exact. I love Bohemian style, it is full of patterns the ones that we live in. Geometric kilims, swirly suzanis, groovy ikats, fancy damasks, country florals, and an entire world of folk embroidery… human beings like some patterns. Textiles are an art all their own. As long as the colors get along, you can actually get away with mixing a lot of patterns all at once. A true bohemian needs at least one patterned textile in every room of the tent, if not a dozen.
Nowadays to be Bohemian chic or guy means to be turn for the Divine flow of sacred life accessible to all who seek it, and the new consciousness which will permit the new world transition is already being born. Therefore, be blessed, and allow your life to become simple. You are already there within your inner being. You are already there because you exist on the Earth at this time. Receive the gifts of this time, then, and open the doors that will allow peace and harmony to flow to you. May your journey be blessed. Be Bohemian, be free spirit, do everything from your heart with all the love from the universe!
