Indian Summer Makes A Room Glow

Saffron Marigold - Updated: September 10, 2020

Cindy Magnus, a longtime friend of Saffron Marigold, used our Indian Summer linens and orange bedroom decor to bring a warm, global vibe to her room. The room pulses with bold color and style. The bed linens, furnishings, art–it all works together like a choreographed symphony with Cindy as the conductor.  She sent this lovely note.

When I first saw the Indian Summer bedspreads on your website, I couldn’t wait to use them in this room. Because the only windows in the room face north, the room was a bit dark and dreary. Now, despite the paucity of natural light, the room literally glows. As you know, the papaya color in Indian Summer warms up a room without being loud or garish.”

We love how Cindy draped her four poster bed with our orange bedding. If you’re interested in creating curtains for your four-poster bed, then read on!

In order to get the height I needed for the bed curtains, I purchased bedspreads and had them made up with ties at the top. All of the bed curtains are lined with a dark orange silk from India. My seamstress also made a slipcover for the upholstered headboard and a bedskirt out of  your bedspreads.


Cindy shared that when she first traveled to India over a decade ago, she found herself mesmerized by all the colorful textiles. It was then that she first fell in love with block printed fabrics. She even got to try her hand at block printing, which she says deepened her appreciation for the craft. Cindy began designing her California home with an Indian-inspired style and has continued this design journey ever since. She says, “I’ve now completed three rooms and I’m planning a fourth. So fun!”

Anyway, I absolutely love your gorgeous linens and hope the photos will inspire others to use them to brighten up their homes as well.
