Hawaiian Bedding - Island Comforter
With a Hawaiian comforter as your focal point, create an island retreat in your bedroom that will inspire dreams of the sun, surf and sand.
In patterns reflecting the images and colors evocative of Hawaiian island culture – swaying palm trees, exotic blossoms, tiki huts and ocean waves – Hawaiian comforters and bedspreads set the scene for your own tropical getaway.
When decorating in a Hawaiian motif, think of the flora of the islands including lush bamboo and palms, brightly colored hibiscus, spiky beach grasses. Translate those scenes onto your Hawaiian comforter and bedding accessories, as well as accent pieces for your room. Let your imagination take flight – choose a palm tree bed spread or seashell bed spread to get you started on your South Seas décor.
Install bamboo shades on your windows, or try inexpensive bamboo matting on the floor. A ceiling fan with palm leaf paddles will further add to your island atmosphere.
Let the colors of your tropical comforter or bedspread determine the palette for your private paradise. Paint your walls in vibrant colors inspired by luminous pink hibiscus or the deep orange bird of paradise. Accent with sun-kissed colors of pineapple and mango. And bright colors will pop against a backdrop of ocean blue or bright navy.
Surfboards make excellent shelves or headboards and are a clever accessory to augment the surfing theme depicted on your Hawaiian bedspread. Forego the tiki torches but bring out the candles to create a romantic glow of the beach at sunset. Plant a real or silk palm tree in a corner, next to a rattan chair. Hang melodic wind chimes near an open window to softly lull you to sleep on cool summer nights.
Sure, your beach getaway may be just down the hall, let paradise be in your state of mind if you can't be in the state of Hawaii!
