I picked up this book randomly at the library one day, and was so glad I did. Ever pick up a decorating book purely to look at pictures? That’s usually what I do. And this one was chock full of lovely rooms stuffed with colorful patterns and Turkish ornaments.
They also have a Flickr group dedicated to the book and anything it’s inspired. .

Notice the butterfly chandelier. I really really want one.
Even though most people think dark, complex, Indian- or Turkish-inspired patterns and themes for bohemian, anything colorful, whimsical or highly ornamental fits the category.
This mock chandelier is so cute and bright.
And this set by Anthropologie is absolutely stunning. I realize it’s a shop, but what I wouldn’t give to live in it.
Bohemian fashion is a little easier to distinguish. Long, flowing dresses, diaphanous shirts and skirts, heavy jewelry and hair ornaments really characterize the style.
Call me a hippy: I won’t altogether deny it. If I could live in a retro trailer and wear long dresses everyday and just paint the rest of my life, I would be content.
