Bohemian interiors are a great option for those who prefer the freedom of flexibility in their spaces. This can be enhanced with elements like light Scandanavian furniture that can be moved around, casual styling of mixed and matched throws and cushions, Macrame wall hangings and adding personal things on open shelves etc. A bohemian-styled house is constantly evolving, perfect for travel enthusiasts and art collectors alike.
