I love living in the tropics, particularly at this time of the year. The days are just so beautiful. Warm and sunny with just that slight crispness in the air in the mornings and little or no humidity. Just perfect! When I look at the temperatures in the southern states I think how lucky we are. Here it is almost the end of June and I haven't even put a blanket on our bed at night! What I do miss however are the wonderful bedroom decorating opportunities which come with living in a cooler climate. In searching for inspiration for my current bedroom transformation I have come across these beautiful vintage eiderdowns. How I would love to have one of these gorgeous creations at the foot of my new bed. They just look so warm and inviting.
There's something about a beautiful eiderdown which seems to shout "Come and snuggle under me....." Against the crisp white linen sheets and pillow cases their colours and puffiness seem so cheery and comforting. I'll just have to keep searching to see if I can find a "tropical" alternative.
