    Red-tribal-bedroom

     

     

    Some would say the bedroom is the place that brings out the primitive in all of us (yes, even Neanderthal Man needed shut-eye from time to time!). This room definitely appeals to my base instincts – I love the wallpaper that doesn’t look like wallpaper. It’s done in an Ikat style, which is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process on the warp fibres, the weft fibres, or in the rare and costly ‘double ikat’ both warp and weft, prior to dyeing and weaving (thanks Wikipedia!). And how about that tribal-looking neckwear on the bedside table – that would be a talking point in any bedroom!

    If loud pumping music and a row of poorly-pitched tents aren’t your thing, then check out these more PG global gathering schemes. Summer’s hottest modern interiors trend takes exotic colours and textiles and a brand new adventure … and not a portaloo in SIGHT!

    Team a subtle four-in-one table like this one, with an exotic patterned rug.
