Ultra feminine bohemian style

On the other hand, give free rein to your creativity by harmonizing bright colors such as turquoise and fuchsia or even orange and purple. Tones to remember without limit by opting for plaids in Indian fabric, velvet curtains or a multitude of colorful rugs in vegetable silk or pure wool. Decorative objects brought back from your travels, pouf in patchwork and painted wooden furniture are inseparable from the bohemian style.
