A little bit Bohemian

Friday, January 15, 2010

Just a few days ago I was able to catch Moulin Rouge, one of my favorite movies, on tv. It had been a long time since I had last watched it and I was instantly reminded of why I love it so much. I mean, what's there not to love? The story is deep & passionate, the costumes are brilliantly colorful, and the sets are absolutely stunning. Oh, and how can I forget to mention my favorite part about the movie, the music of course!

Speaking of the sets, they're all about being Bohemian and what it means to be Bohemian. According to the movie, the Bohemian ideals are truth, beauty, freedom, and love. And the sets that were created truly are immersed in these ideals by bringing in lots of colors, patterns, fabrics and textures which evoke all senses. Annette Tatum's definition of bohemian in her book, The Well-Dressed Home, says:
Multicultural and multiethnic, bohemian style is a boisterous caravan of color. Patchwork patterns and layers of exotic texture flaunt non-conformity as a badge of honor...There are no wrong answers, only possibilities to explore. Past, present, and future merge into a whirlwind fusion.
I can't really pinpoint the exact moment when I started to appreciate the bohemian style (in fashion and decor), but I have a hunch that this movie might have had a lot to do with it because if I remember correctly I used to watch this an awful lot in college.

A few images that call out to my inner Bohemian:
