Bohemian style decor is often viewed as free-spirited and perfectly undone. This style emerged out of 19th century France when artists began to move out of Romani areas of Paris in pursuit of a more nomadic, artistic lifestyle. This created a juxtaposition of the French style and a search for an alternative standard of beauty resulted in the origins of what we know of bohemian style today.
