“A Bohemian life, filled with poetry, it cuts like a knife, without coquetry!”
The famous line from Pierrot & Columbine (The Pierrot ́s Love Series) by Ana Claudia Antunes gives us an insight into Bohemian life. The term “Boho” and “Bohemian” have gained popularity over the years. Originally, Bohemians were the nomadic people belonging to the region of Bohemia in the Czech Republic. They follow a lifestyle that is free of any kind of inhibitions and lead an unconventional lifestyle while traveling the world.
Today, the word Boho has a different meaning, but the core remains the same. It refers to the beautiful earthy aesthetics that are inspired by past Bohemian styles. While girls are leaning towards Bohemian fashion and decor for themselves and their homes respectively, even the restauranteers are thinking of more Boho-looking interiors for their places. A boho-style place should have a very relaxed and comfortable vibe, but at the same time, it should look bold and unconventional.
If you are someone who is looking out for a different and unique theme for your restaurant, then go Boho. Here are some of the ways you can infuse Boho-ness in the interiors of your restaurant.
While thinking of painting the walls, you can experiment with different colors and patterns. Because that is what a Boho culture represents – a free-spirited nature. You can go for bright colors, neutral tones, or earthy tones and can pair them with different patterns like floral, paisleys, geometric, etc. You can also go for a different type of flooring that goes well with the boho-styled walls. It is recommended to have plain walls with patterned flooring or plain floor with textured walls because too many patterns and colors can be a killjoy.
