Keep your Holiday Alive with a Bahamas Inspired Bedroom

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Can you believe that August is nearly over and we come to the end of the summer holidays.  September is the time we all get back to normal and dare I say it we start counting down until Christmas.  None of us want to leave the dream of summer behind so keep your holiday alive with a Bahamas Bedroom. The Bahamas, as unique as precious jewels encrusted in the clear tropical sea is made up of a series of hundreds of islands.  Each island has its own character but they all enjoy the breathtaking scenery that surrounds them.  We have selected pieces that bring together the calm and relaxing tone of the Bahamas with a touch of Caribbean flavour. I wanted the bed to be reminiscent of the beach as well as having an essence of the tropical.  The beautifully hand-carved handwoven can bed really does have a coastal feel.
