I Googled the phrase bohemian to gain some insight into where the influences for the BoHo Eclectic design style originated. Here’s what I found.

If I were to describe Bohemian, Gypsy or Eclectic design style, the first thing I’d say is forget the rules. With BoHo there don’t seem to be many. This decorating style is unconventional. It emphases personal expression and individuality.
