Summer is officially here and the inevitable lazy, chill vibes have descended on our otherwise high octane city, leaving sundress and cut-off clad locals to wander idly, daydreaming about languidly lounging under an umbrella by the sea with pen in hand, making art in a grassy meadow or sowing seeds in a secret garden. In considering adopting a groovy, free-spirited lifestyle year round, we thought we’d take a look at the makings of the bohemian home to bring our bucolic fantasy to life.

The Westminster Review, a liberal journal published in the 19th century, reported that “a Bohemian is simply an artist or “littérateur” who, consciously or unconsciously, secedes from conventionality in life and in art.” Maybe you don’t need the summer sun to reignite your inner beatnik, but, if — like us — your fervent flower child has been re-awakened, here’s our primer on outfitting your space to match your mood ring. From Boucherouite rag rugs to Handira wedding blankets, click through to check out our roundup of bohemian home essentials.
