Decorating a la vie boheme isn't all about chipped paint on the wall and a waif looking model sitting on a half made bed with a ciggy in hand. Elegant pieces, even "gaudy" pieces have a bohemian feel to them that is undeniable. Take a shabby room (with chipped paint on the wall) and add an elaborate chandelier to it. It becomes a bohemian heaven. If you're going for the boho look in your space, try to add one or two over the top, elegant pieces. It will do wonders for your boho surroundings.
