How to Create a Tropical Caribbean Bedroom

Some of you may know the quote, "If the mountain will not come to Mohammed, then Mohammed must go to the mountain".

Well with finances at an all-time low in these recessionary times, I say, "If you can't go to the Caribbean, bring the Caribbean to you!"

For a fraction of the cost of a real tropical Caribbean vacation, (airline tickets, accommodation, transportation and spending money) you can "be" on vacation every day right in the comfort of your very own home.

Use beautifully framed Caribbean themed pictures or lovely, tropical wall decals to create the background to your Caribbean vacation.

Then spice up your bedroom with beautiful Caribbean and tropical themed linen or bedding for any size bed - single, double, twin, queen or king. Then just wake up each morning in the Caribbean!

Yes! Fake it until you can make it to the Caribbean on your ideal vacation.

Whatever theme you choose to decorate your bedroom, your bedroom décor and design should exude peace and tranquillity. After all this is the place where you are rejuvenated for your daily activities or seek solace for peace, relaxation and good loving.

A white sandy beach, coconut palm tree swaying in the wind, clear blue waters and an almost cloudless sky!

 

Tropical Caribbean Pictures: Another Ideal Bedroom Background

And if you think of wall decals as defacement of your walls, then a lovely tropical aquarium light or a scenic Caribbean picture frame can bring you the same feeling of being on vacation in the Caribbean.

Sun, Sea and Sand!

Keeping and caring for real fish can be a bother if you work late, travel a lot or leave it to children who are excited about taking care of their pet the first few days and then abandon them.

So let the moving picture in this aquarium light help you create the illusion of having real fish in real water.

          One of the things I like best about the Caribbean is the range of textures - smooth or ridged shells, fine sand, and fibres like coconut matting and linen. Lots to play with, even before you start working with colours! Lovely decorating ideas here.
