Bohemian Home

Bohemian Home - Multicolored Star GarlandWhen we think about a bohemian home, we think global goodness. Symbols rich in their history and meaning, fragrant incense and comforting artwork. Bohemian means lounging on floor pillows, enjoying cups of tea, thinking about life and talking about books.

It’s important to take time for yourself each day. It’s easy to get swept away in the rush of errands and chores. But there’s a beauty in stillness. We encourage you to spend a moment each day to reflect and unwind.

Create a safe space where the mind can rest. The body will follow. Especially if you’re moving into a new house or apartment, it’s easy to feel a little lost in the new environment. It doesn’t take much to transform a blank slate into a private oasis.

When creating a well-rounded space, an easy way to start is by breaking it down into the five senses:

Sight

Wall hangings and hanging lamps. The storied tradition of kalamkari art meets the symbolic significance of a tree of life. A metal hanging lamp from Egypt creates a sense of allure and ancient mystery.

Smell

Incense, for an atmospheric ambiance.

Touch

Pillows, sitting close to the ground can help you feel… well… grounded.

Taste

Tea, we recommend Equal Exchange for your fair trade tea needs. And nothing beats a handmade ceramic mug from master potters in Vietnam, who have learned their craft from generations that have come before them.

Sound

Singing bowl, for a meditative tone that will soothe your worries away.

When an item is handcrafted, the maker puts a little bit of love into every creation they touch. Handcrafted items hold a positive energy that cannot be found anywhere else. It’s the same feeling as when a neighbor presents you with a tray of homemade cookies. The secret ingredient is love.

Surrounding yourself with handcrafted items is a great way to bring the love of people around the world into your bohemian home and fill your space with positive energy.
