The original “Bohemians” were travellers or refugees from central Europe (hence, the French bohémien, for “gypsy”). Reflecting on the fashion style of “boho-chic” in the early years of the 21st century, the Sunday Times thought it ironic that “fashionable girls wore ruffly floral skirts in the hope of looking bohemian, nomadic, spirited and non-bourgeois”, whereas “gypsy girls themselves … are sexy and delightful precisely because they do not give a hoot for fashion”.

By contrast, in the late 19th century and first half of the 20th, aspects of Bohemian fashion reflected the lifestyle itself. The Bohemian style also reflected on the interior design. Source. If Marie Antoinette had an Airstream trailer, it would look like this. Saudi Aramco World : A Treasure House on the Hudson. N a hill overlooking New York’s Hudson River, and nearly in the shadow of the Catskill Mountains, stands Olana, a home built by one of the 19th century’s most celebrated American painters, Frederic Edwin Church.

Saudi Aramco World : A Treasure House on the Hudson

An orientalist confection in the eyes of many visitors today, Olana in fact traces its inspiration, design and furnishings back to Church’s three-month trip to the Levant in 1868. The resulting tug-of-war between Church’s careful observation and his personal artistic invention makes Olana an architectural landmark of Middle Eastern vernacular set in a New World landscape. The name “Olana” comes from Strabo’s Geography, in which the Greek historian named a fortified treasure house on the Araxes River that flows from Turkey into the Caspian Sea. (Today the river is known as the Aras.) Architect and Artist Tomás Colaço. Camilla Franks: call of the wild.

The Fern and Mossery: Q & A: How to quarantine plants and moss (and why)?

Plants and moss collected from nature or purchased at a nursery can harbor any number of foreign items or organisms that might wreak havoc in a terrarium environment: small insects, mold, mystery plants etc. It is relatively easy to remove problem items from a large-opening terrarium such as a vase, fishbowl or dish.
