"Everyone has a view of what the bohemian is," says Virginia Nicholson (Author of “Among the Bohemians” and Grandaughter to Virginia Woolf one of the iconic turn of the century bohemians.) "The bohemian is an outsider, defines themselves as an outsider and is defined by the world as an outsider... A lot of people regard them as subversive, elitist and possibly just a little bit immature."
Musician Kurt Cobain, hailed as the "spokesman of a generation"
As we already established historically in the last blog post - Bohemianism and being bohemian is all about the rejection of the “normal” and the “conservative,” and for me, finding a way that creatively stands out, a way of being that is different and your own.
What, then, is it that makes this mystical empire of Bohemia unique, and what is the charm of its mental fairyland? It is this: there are no roads in all Bohemia! One must choose and find one’s own path, be one’s own self, live one’s own life.” - Gelett Burgess, The Romance of the Commonplace.
No holding back on colour, texture and layers!
In the next Blog Post I will look in mote detail into contemporary Bohemianism and interior décor.
As that is actually what we are all about ;)
