Tropical Bedroom Inspiration

The arrival of summer here in the Southern hemisphere has definitely put me in a holiday mood and I'm swooning over all things tropical.

Pilgrimage Spaces (a store I really love) currently has some amazing tropical-inspired decor that is guaranteed to transform your rooms into exotic spaces.

I have always thought the bedroom is one of the most important rooms in a home, as it's where you spend most of your time and it should be the place you feel the most relaxed.... AND what is more relaxing that a island getaway? (stay with me here)...Sure, we can't all just escape to an idyllic island (pity) - but you can make your room into your own tropical escape.

Here's a little inspiration...

Here are a few of the items I would love to have in my home right now (links to shop below):


I'm happy to be able to offer you a giveaway, together with Pilgrimage Spaces. ONE lucky reader will win a tropical palm printed 'kantha' quilt in queen size (pictured above). 

The quilt is made from a soft cotton fabric, is hand blocked and dyed by skilled artisans. The hand stitching was done using the kantha technique.
