To find such brocante gems as the little vintage bottles contained in this glass lid canister. You must travel your flea markets, second hand stores, tag and estate sales with a bohemian spirit.
Bohemian is a radical outlook on a collective flea market style in art and life. A bohemian steps over the rules of all things above and beyond conventional treasure seeking the next European flea market find. Designing around an easy, graceful, joyous unconsciousness guided by the principles of a feeling. Bohemian style is not narrow minded on a mix in designs to create your own environment, developing originality is a big part of your finds. A person of bohemian has a "devotion to one or more of the seven arts... and once known to live in poverty." I would guess the reasoning would be the gypsy like passion for old world flea market style with art, and designs in a poetic life.
French European imported cabinet in boho chic style, our perfect place to contain extra china pieces and entertaining needs. As you notice my latest sign i've painted..."Brocante" French for flea market gems, is temporarily placed waiting for a perfect place to rest.
The French are known for there baskets, in addition to there use and storage style. The square rusty one is from Anthropologie there found objects, and the round egg basket was a great ebay find, both baskets adding charm and function.
Designing around bohemian French flea market style, is irresistible to the eye of one who seeks it. I love things to surprise me with its neutral palette, and how the simplist piece adds to its presentation; resulting in a magical setting.
This slipcovered man tailored white button down old dress shirt is so bohemian chic, gypsy in style. I took and fitted the chairs with old white dress shirts for bohemain entertaining. You can see the face of the shirt up to the table ( back a few pictures) where it was buttoned down the front, the arms are wrapped to the backside tied and tagged with a special greeting or name place.
I hope this inspires, and brings the European boho chic out in all of you.
