The mismatched, the unusual, and the comfy; bohemian styling is making a bold return. The relaxed design allows for effortless chic in older homes.
The artistic, unconventional styling can cross through the edges of many design boundaries. The look can be rough and industrial, organic and upscale, or soft and sweet.
With originality and comfort in mind, Bohemian style boasts fun colors and free-spirited design. While “boho chic” can be traced back to the 1960s and 1970s, it is possible that the roots extend back much further.
“The modern bohemian home tells a story of its individual and complex inhabitant. Rather than the clean surfaces of a contemporary space, or the immaculately tailored finishings of a traditional space, the modern bohemian aesthetic is characterized by layers” - Harper’s Bazaar.
The bohemian aesthetic— worn woods, Moroccan rugs, pattern on pattern, and copious plants— continues to influence non-traditional designs of today.

MANY OF OUR CLIENTS WORK ON CREATING WORKSPACES FOR THEIR CLIENTS AND EMPLOYEES TO ENJOY. HERE IS A LOOK AT SOME OF THE UNIQUE AND INSPIRING SPACES THAT DESIGNERS AND BUILDERS WE WORK WITH HAVE DESIGNED.
designed by Alan Nehring, One of the newest spaces in the area is Coltrane Built. Upon entering, employees and guests are greeted by an open work space and a modern coffee bar. Seating is available throughout the building, with meeting areas and a special touch screen area.
Erin Muller of Nehring Design Had this to say about the design of coltrane built: "We aspired to engage a modern workplace within showcasing the latest demountable wall and audio visual technologies while preserving the fabric of the area on the structures exterior."
The lawrence group designed a striking, graphic space for the pet-loving employees of solid gold pet and their four-legged friends. Lisa morrision says that The office space includes natural stone walls, rustic wood cladding, and crisp solid surfaces with bright walls to create a perfect backdrop for solid gold's packaging.
Morrison says, "At Solid Gold, pets are their #1 client. Lawrence Group created a pet friendly and animal centric work environment that employees could enjoy as well. This group of avid animal lovers worked with Lawrence Group’s Workplace team to design an open office experience for their new corporate headquarters that perfectly partnered with their holistic pet food company’s brand with their space." the designers created the perfect blend to work while being pet-friendly.
When We asked Rita Radley of Arcturis About Adarza , She said that her client "wanted a space that could not only support the needs of their team, but help tell their story and define their culture. We used graphics inspired by Adarza’s cutting edge technology to subtly brand their space. The kitchen was strategically located in the heart of the office to act as a connector between the lab and the office space. To encourage social interaction and cross-pollination of ideas, we added an interactive community wall in the kitchen that has become a cultural touchstone in the space. By creating an element that the employees can use to share ideas and contribute to their environment, they are creating their own story and are continuing to define their brand. For anyone visiting their new space, the office provides clarity about not only their cutting-edge technology, but how they define the company’s story and culture."
arcturis definitely reached their goals in the design of this unique and interactive workspace.
Here comes summer! Vacation time, right? You may not be leaving town, but that shouldn't stop you from having a 'staycation' right here in St. Louis.
To start planning your St. Louis Staycation, let's check into the Moonrise Hotel on the Delmar Loop. The building theme is out of this world (literally), with every room boasting a space-theme and bright colors. The hotel even has a rooftop bar and patio for those perfect summer nights under the stars.
Right off Washington Blvd., you can check out the Pulitzer Arts Foundation's latest exhibit "Terra Infirma" by Mona Hatoum. Designed to make you somewhat uncomfortable, the artist has created a series of work that will change the way you look at various household objects. for example, she has created an over-sized grinder, title "Mouli Julienne," as seen below.
We must check out everything Forest Park has to offer, with highlights like the Grand Basin and the St Louis Art Museum. One of the last remaining exhibits of the 1904 World's Fair, the Grand Basin is a beautiful piece of local history to experience. Visitors are able to take paddle boats out among the fountains to cool down in the St Louis heat.
This summer, SLAM is hosting several exhibits, including "Sunken Cities: Egypt's Lost World," and "Sun Xun: Time Spy."
Next, where should we get dinner? Let's hit the world-famous Blueberry Hill, where The Father of Rock & Roll and first person inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Chuck Berry, inaugurated the Duck Room. A popular music spot, people flock from all over to pay their respects, have some food and listen to great live music.
As our day fades to evening, we would recommend some time at Billy Jean's for a cocktail and dinner. or, swing by Jazz at the Bistro for some smooth late-night entertainment.
