Designer Thursday: Tropical Resort themed bedroom

Summer is coming to an end, but that doesn't mean you have to put away your sandals and bathing suit just yet. If you are suffering from vacation blues and weren't able to get away to a tropical resort this summer, then try creating one in your bedroom. This tropical resort themed room is extremely easy and economical to recreate.

I created this room for one of my clients, and wanted to share some tips on how to recreate this look for your own bedroom.

I had the headboard custom made using products that can be purchased at a home improvement store. Purchase some tropical looking window blinds and wrap and staple them over a box that was created out of mdf. Why spend a ton of money on a headboard when you can create one for under a $100?

The skirt for this tropical bed is actually bamboo placemats that have been attached with velcro to the boxspring. This trick can be used for any bedroom theme.
The starfish and shells add a tropical touch and help feature the drapery treatments. I purchased Starfish at a local discount store and hand painted each one being sure to match an accent color used in the fabric.

What do you think? If you want to use any of the pictures in this post, please be sure to give credit back to me, and link to this page. If you are interested in purchasing any of the trade fabric used in this project let me know, and I can give pricing. Happy Decorating!
