Home textures: bedroom

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.

lantern, chinese, san francisco, ganesh, hand of fatima, lucy patterson 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.

yukata, dressing gowns, gowns, indigo, japanese, blue, white, fish, lucy patterson
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.

vintage, moroccan, rug, carpet, neon, berber, geometric, knotted, lucy patterson
One of the vintage rugs I bought in Morocco. I love the bold geometry, neon colours, and the way the background red is so uneven.

    We absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome web log!

  5. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?

  6. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your blog and in depth information you provide. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material. Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    Love your blog and pairing here. Which Northern Vietnamese markets do you recommend for the best Hmong embroidery or brocade? I’ve been to Lac village in Mai Chau but its very hard to get to. I haven’t been to Sapa or Bac Ha, a bit worried Bac Ha is mostly mass produced machine goods and limited textiles. I see you found some gems, would love to hear a bit more about where you went and how you got there. thanks!
