Timeless Boho Chic

Stunning fabrics from magical Kenya

Beauty, colours and culture Alert; it is about to get pretty cheery in here.

There is something about Bohemian style that tends to wake up my senses, from fashion to interiors. It so earthy and relaxing;  as a girl who loves nature and all its glory, no surprise there.

That is why it is in my list of favorite style and trends and this year it has made a come back in the name of Nomadic interior style which is included in Jijjysmaison post – Top 6 Interior trends 2019.

Take a glimpse of these fabrics below. You can spot where the culture and style got their inspiration from.

Just for those who do not know: – Bohemian aka Boho culture is perceived as rebellious. Started by group that was known for loathing capitalism and pro- collectivism supporters. They were against the bourgeoisie- middle class lifestyle. Boho lifestyle has evolved into a spirituality .

So it is no surprise that I had to include the style into my collection of handmade home accessories using some gift fabrics from family, after their trip to Kenya. Some of the fabric came from my favourite market called Masai market which moves around Nairobi town on different days.

Additional fabric also came from the beautiful towns on the coast line of Kenya. My beloved family only planned to get a few maasai jewellery and this was them after a few hours. ๐Ÿ˜€

Just kidding this is not one of my relatives

Here in London, I was very excited to try out some ideas with the fabrics.
