When choosing a style of bedding for any room in your house it is imperative that you choose a style that can work with any and all of your individual tastes. If you are inclined towards a more modern clean look in your challenge will be to not create a bland environment. While if you have a Gypsy heart you may have a hard time keeping your house from gaudy and garish. The bedspread that you choose will be the centerpiece of the room and will create a feel and sense in the room that all of their furniture and decorations will only accent.

The new Bohemian bedding style that is currently in vogue is a wonderful way to either soften a modern tastes or accent and brighten an already cheerful and colorful room. the rich materials combined with the bright colors, and beautiful patterns can create a feeling of wealth while at the same time bringing a feel of warmth and cheer to the room. The modern combinations of Victorian patterns with animal prints and strong colors can give you a sense of the old world Gypsy styles, while not losing the beauty of modern simplicity.

The term of “bohemian” is an old term that was used in reference to people from the old Kingdom of Bohemia, which was where the traditional Czech lands now lie. These lands were full of gypsies with their cheerful, upbeat music and brightly colored clothing. as these people traveled into the more modern Western Europe. Their styles were looked upon as outrageous and gaudy. But as time went on their taste slowly made its way into the everyday mindsets of the people they interacted with. The bright colors, the cheerful music, the lively music, all became sought after and eventually became incorporated into what was considered proper and beautiful styles.

Bohemian styles today can be very liberating.

Our modern world teaches that colors must not clash, that lines must be clean, that greys, whites and blacks are the essential palette for decor, and anything ornate or antique, must be done away with. When we add that beautiful piece of classic, luxuriously colored tapestry, or the other ornate vase, colored and blues, reds and purples we free ourselves from the world of steel and glass that most of us find to be the center of our lives. Mixing our reds and our oranges, and combining them with beautiful hues of purple and blue may seem like a social faux pas, But in truth, it is a traditional way of expressing our own souls.
