Hippie, Gypsy, Or Boho-Chic? By david Chronister

A fashion trend that is part bohemian and part chic. It is tied to the vintage phenomenom in fashion where the trend was to bring back vintage styles for the modern era. Boho chic combines organic, colorful, detailed, folk-inspired pieces with simple, modern pieces.–(http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=boho%20chic&defid=1609971)
So recently I began researching this trend because a friend of mine asked me if I knew of a name for the style she wanted for bedroom. She struggled to get the words out but I think it went something like,“Hippie…funky, Gypsy…or thats what I keep telling people.” I knew what she meant because over the course of a decade I’ve seen it over and over and over. I think the Olsen twins were pretty famous for it, actress Sienna Miller is attributed the most to starting the trend and say’s in many articles that she took it from London style artists and London street fashion. Here’s even some clothes-pins I gleamed from Etsy in BOHO-Style

Drawing from the bohemian and hippie influences of the 60′s and 70′s, the Boho Chic design trend is full of beautiful tapestries, feathers and ethnic prints. Maybe it’s the artist in me, but I love the some what messy and creative look in fashion and home decor."

This trend is timeless I believe, it creates a fantasy. The best part of design is that there are no rules! Only Elements that create an Atmosphere, so some elements to Boho begin with things that are natural textiles, stone, woods, fabric choices are always of importance. Pop’s of color mixing with dark dramatic colors too, repurposing things from vintage shops, and Moroccon patterns.Layer rugs and throw pillows,low level seating gives a Bedouin feel, Mix in elements like twinkle lights, obscure art, mismatch chairs at your tables, go in with a commitment to a color schemes, several work though, try to avoid a cluster of items that do not relate. If you do it right the results are chic, relaxed and fantastic.
