Inspired by Bohoscandi living, we set out to create the very first bohoscandi store in Malaysia or likely first in the world, RYO Lifestyle (RYO : Redefine Your Own) was set up by our founders in early 2019 whose main objective is to provide consumers with products ranging from fashion, homeware and even gadgets that can look aesthetically beautiful at the same time functional and affordably priced .
RYO Lifestyle emphasizes alot on the term 'Bohoscandi' but what exactly do we mean by that?
Bohoscandi is simply made up of two familiar words which are 'Bohemian' and 'Scandinavian'. Over the years the latter has garnered worldwide popularity, whether in the area of art, decor, fashion & living and has since contributed to the rising number of retail players riding on its trend such as the renowned giant IKEA. Scandinavian design is characterized by simplicity, minimalism and functionality. Some of the products being inspired and very well received in the market include those of marble prints, rose gold plating, white stones or woven homeware.
Boho or Bohemian style, on the other hand thrives on a variety of natural materials, earthy shades and hippie-inspired patterns.They are predominantly inspired by Roma gypsies or free spirited beings. In Asia the bohemian factor is often associated with Balinese design. Think aztec, tassels, printed scarves and beach essentials.
All products sold in RYO Lifestyle are specially curated to suit the bohoscandi theme. Whether it's the colour palette, style or design, each of our product follows strict guideline and in accordance to the modern minimalist living. The versatility and easy on the eye colors also ensures there is always something for everybody regardless of age and profession especially for the ladies.
New items or seasonal collections are introduced from time to time and as frequent as bi-weekly or monthly in RYO Lifestyle. No one person would be bored of seeing the same group of products for a long time which is what makes our brand so fresh and unique. That being said some of the products such as seasonal humidifier, aroma oil, woven baskets may come in selected quantities and we may or may not reproduce once they are sold out to give way for new collection.
