Woon Zi Zheng

"Bohemian" was initially a term with given to Roma vagabonds, ordinarily accepted by the French to have started in Bohemia, in focal Europe.
Roma Gypsies started in the Punjab area of northern India as a migrant group and entered Europe between the eighth and tenth hundreds of years C.E. They were designated "Wanderers" since Europeans mistakenly believed they came from Egypt.
For centuries, stereotypes and prejudices have had a negative impact on the understanding of Roma culture. As Roma individuals live dissipated among different populaces in various areas, their ethnic culture has been impacted by collaboration with the way of life of their encompassing populace. All things considered, there are some novel and extraordinary perspectives to Romani culture. For instance, A stereotype that Romani people have psychic powers (e.g. fortune-teller) is still sometimes present, and some romantics attribute the invention of the Tarot cards to them.

Bohemian design
Bohemian design is enlivened by the individuals who lead a free-vivacious, standard opposing life, similar to explorers, essayists, specialists, and so on "What we presently comprehend as 'bohemianism' from a plan viewpoint arose out of mid nineteenth century France, when specialists moved into the lower-lease Romani (wanderer) regions of Paris, to look for options in contrast to average assumptions. This union of societies brought about a sort of way of life, where the quest for abundance was deserted in the quest for an imaginative life and elective goals of magnificence," says designer Justina Blakeney.
Bohemian plan is tied in with consolidating various things from various ways of thinking, portions of the world, and lifestyles. The outcome is an eclectic style that's as diverse as the people who inspire it. It's a free-lively stylish established in social blending and an artistic sensibility.
However, bohemian plan isn't just about fusing these components—it's about not being reluctant to blend and layer them. Colours and materials don't really need to mix well; what makes it remarkable is the way they are consolidated and how offbeat ways they are utilized, such as hanging a rug in addition to using one on the floor.
Bohemian design thinks outside the box—it's random, eclectic, and devoid of structure and order.

The title M:M implies Mix and Match, applying the philosophy of sure about attempting to consolidate some specific design elements or components that is very surprising together, similar to chemistry, they react, and new things come out.
As I want to carry the philosophy to architecture aspect, I attempt to having few ship containers amidst backwoods, instead of having typical A-frame cabin in the forest as retreat, Adaptive reuse of abandoned ship containers is preferable due to its shape and material and modular system. The spatial relationship and arrangement are depending on the function and zoning of each area, which means the more the ship containers the more types of space hence the circulation in between is varies. As each ship container is allocating for one type of space, hence the interiors are combination of
Bohemian design and other design style/philosophy/form. Bringing the concept of layering and mixing can create different architecture.
