Global and tribal looks come together in the Bohemian Rhapsody trend.
Bohemian Rhapsody, which mixes offbeat and cool, borrows from tribal, Indian and Moroccan designs and mixes in some hippie-chic for an upbeat expression. Mid-century modern pieces, velvet overstuffed chairs and rustic lighting ground the look, and colors are bold and bright, including deep Celandine yellow, rich reds and darker museum hues of teal, amaranth, and some lighter shades of pale including creamy whites and peach.
