Warning you better get your glasses on; it is about to get pretty, colorful, and cheery in here; It’s all about Boho chic people.
There is something about Bohemian style that tends to wake up my senses, from fashion to interiors. It so earthy, and for a girl who loves nature and all its glory, we all should not be surprised.
Bohemian aka Boho culture was started by the maligned perception of Bohemian aka Boho culture is that they are rebels and are against the bourgeoisie- middle class lifestyle. Known for loathing capitalism and are pro- collectivism. I associate Today’s Boho lifestyle with spirituality.
To cut the story short and leave the gravely bits a side, you have to love the earthy tones in the style. The mode really reminds me of beautiful colors and vibes from Africa like the famous Morocco, Kenya, or South Africa; Its easy to spot those earthy tones on South American prints as well.
Here is a quick glimpse:

My last holiday was in Kenya, where I visited the sunny, vibrant towns of Nairobi and Mombasa. The atmosphere there is addictive; so many places to tour. However, my trip would not be complete without a visit to the markets where I was able to haul some fabric treasures. My favourite market is the Masai market which moves around Nairobi on different days.

If you have read my other blogs sewing bees have a few cheeky habits. Another one is to ‘see fabric, buy fabric, think of project later’. Just like in my Traid charity shop visit!! This was me …
Only went to get 4 types of fabrics, Max. Ps- the picture is a tard exaggerated, just think a quarter of that. Back to London, I was very excited to try out some ideas with the fabrics. So here we are, at a quick glance of the first batch I made , tell me what you think. I will add to this as I go along
Bohemian style interiors tend to be beautifully colourful and envokes feelings of comfort and happy moods. Have a look at this beautiful interiors from Harpers Bazaar and Atlantis Homes.
