Bedskirts series: Orange and Red Indian Summer

Saffron Marigold - Updated: July 3, 2014

Let’s imagine for a moment that you are in a room overlooking the beach on an island far away. A balmy breeze blows in through the open windows. Palm trees lazily sway in the wind. In the center of your room is a large four-poster bed made with reclaimed teak. It’s dressed in the Indian Summer bed linen, with plump pillows just waiting for you  to rest your weary head- BLISS!

The duvet cover comes with a co-ordinated backing. So it’s like buying 2 duvets for the price of one!

The Indian Summer features an interesting combination of colors- small pink paisley flowers with vivid green stems against a “mango” orange yellow. There are subtle red accents and all the colors remind me of a luscious gelato shop! I can see it in a young girl’s bedroom- a strikingly different twist from the predictable all-pink bedrooms.

The Indian Summer print is versatile and can be used in just about any type of bedroom setting. Golden mango/mustard and red are a very popular and auspicious combination of colors in Indian tradition.

1. Mango colored bedskirts: This mango bedskirt from American Home Fashion will really bring a touch of an Indian summer into your home, its colors reminiscent of the vibrant fruit so prevalent in India during the hot summer months!
