Decorating with a Tropical Feel
All my life I have worked hard. This is how I got the nickname "HardworkinJudy" from some of my co-workers. Sometimes I had 2 and 3 jobs simultaneously, while raising my four children by myself. (I didn't meet my current husband until my baby boy was 12, and my previous husband was left behind in NYC when I moved back to Michigan). We had dissolved our marriage years before.
I had always wanted a nice home when I came home, but struggling to balance time and finances always left me without the ability to create my dream home. My children have worked to create comfortable surroundings and I am beginning to take notice of the difference a few accessories can make in creating a beautiful surrounding. There are some things I now want for myself. I would love to come home to an atmosphere that is restful and perhaps a touch exotic... In the above picture we see how the decorator used pergola examples and fabricdraping. I like the way they tied in shades of green to give it both a tropical feel and a calm and restful atmosphere. This is just what I need when I get in from work, plus a table for the lap top. :-) (of course)
Then when it is finally time to fall into bed after working all day and playing on my lap top all night, I want a bedroom that speaks quietly carrying me off to a restful and restorative sleep. Gazing at these beautifully made beds covered with a touch of class/chenillebedspreads
and this chenille bedspread kingwithout fringe just makes me more determined to put a little aside here and there to get the comfort and beauty at home that I deserve. Don't we all deserve to live in the home of our dreams? Chenille bedspreads are perfect in any weather so can be used year around providing the sleeper with soft comfort.
Thank you for your visit. Take care, stay healthy and God bless!
