The Bohemian has influenced fashion in such a strong manner - think Anthropologie. This, of course, influences the spaces we live and work in. This style blends generations together. The younger generations look to their grandparents and wonder if they can pillage their closets for vintage treasures. This movement encapsulates the 70’s or retro style. Among the elements that pervade this style are warm colors, organic and geometric forms, foliage, woven textures, and layers.

Movement created by graphic elements adds a layer of playfulness in the retro looks. Take the Aviator Nation brand of clothing for example (pictured above). There is a warm toned rainbow in all their pieces that slims the profile. This draws the tween and teen generation in.
