Here are some pictures of the textures and details of our bedroom.
White, 100% cotton bedding from Ikea (I wish they had Ikea in New Zealand!). Two Hill Tribe bedspreads from North Vietnam to give us extra warmth. Two vintage carpet cushions bought in Morocco. Floral fabric bought in Rajasthan and later made into a cushion, and a page-sized piece of vintage mirror-work embroidery (also from Rajasthan), that I added green pompoms to at a later date.
My friend, Amy, got me this Chinese lantern in San Francisco. I hung it up with neon ribbons. The photo of a statue of Ganesh, covered in red powder, was taken by my brother. I bought the brass Hand of Fatima in Morocco, and the vintage postcard came from my grandparents.
I bought the vintage Hill Tribe bag at the front (one of my most favourite travel purchases ever!) in Chatuchak market in Bangkok. The scarves are ones I’ve picked up here and there, in sales, or what have you.
Our collection of Japanese yukata dressing gowns. Some are getting quite sun-faded and patched now, but I still use them almost everyday. I always take one if I stay away from home for a night or several, for modesty, home comfort or even as an extra pillow covering.
