Welcome to The House Of Bohème- a sanctuary for the mind, body and home. Founded by Joesphine Benning The House of Bohème is a holistic destination for beautiful interior pieces as well as workshops that inspiring your creativity, healing and breathwork. After a lifetime of travelling and moving from city to city, Jo understood the need for creating a sanctuary, a go-to place to reconnect with yourself, wherever in the world you may be. Our approach was to embody this mentality in the identity, digital home and social landscape, cultivating a brand that welcomes you in with instant warmth and calm.

A feature that allows the House of Bohème’s online platform to be a seamless extension of the brand.
