  • Analysis

    A ‘bohemian’ is somebody who lives their life in a highly informal and relaxed way that rejects the accepted rules for behaviour put in place by society. They are often artistic or musical and generally choose to live among similar-minded people. This word can also be used to refer to a place that is quirky or often frequented by such people.
