What is the opposite ? It would be "bohemian" in English.

I have a few ideas, but I am not a native speaker.

The first thing that came into mind was "der Hippie" and the Swiss missus (she's already posted in here earlier) came up with that word as well. I guess you could use "der Beatnik" or "der Antikonformist." Anybody else?

I think that Bohemian has a slightly different context in German because of Bohemia (Böhmen). Ok, it looks like both Bohemien and Boheme work.
