Bohemians live in alternative spaces, these are places that are not normally considered suitable for living in. They don't make wealth their priority. Money is only a means of survival, so they can live for their arts/craft/music/literature...etc
Miranda and Ivan live in an old abandoned cynagogue, where they paint all day long. Sometimes they sell their art so they can afford to eat.

This term is incorrectly said to refer to a person who leads their life without regard to conventional standards of behaviour because that is how Gypsies lived and it was believed that Gypsies originally hailed from Bohemia, part of what is modern-day Czech Republic. Gypsies actually emigrated from northern Indian so it should also be noted that the term "Gypsy" which is derived from "Egyptian" is also incorrect although it is more widely accepted. The most etymologically correct term would be "Romani" or "Romany" which is the Gypsies original word for themselves.

A hipster who doesn't want to be called a hipster.
Hipster 1: "Hey, man, have you heard of <obscure band>?"

Hipster 2: "Yeah, I used to like them, but now they've sold out. I like their old stuff, like <obscure song from obscure band>. Hey, have you been to <local thrift shop>?"

Hipster 1: "Yeah, but I don't like how they carry stuff from <popular clothing brand>. Clashes with my ironic mustache, you know?"

Hipster 2: "Uh-huh. Hey, listen, aren't hipsters terrible?"

Hipster 1: "Yeah, I was into hipsterism before it was cool. Now it's too mainstream. It's a good thing we're "Bohemian," and not hipsters."

A pretentious, pseudo-intellectual, hipster who smokes pot but still listens to classical music and wears a turtleneck. They pretend to be artists or writers, but have greater ability for sitting in coffee shops all day writing their vanity project on the laptop their daddy bought for them while the unemployment benefits roll in.
