Memories of Shalimar Inspire A Zen Room

Saffron Marigold - Updated: July 13, 2020

Let every room become a zen room, and promote balance in your home through the application of zen decor. We find peace and beauty in the famed Shalimar Gardens, the Persian paradise garden.  Transform your home into a personal sanctuary with Memories of Shalimar collection and find linens for your living room, bedroom, kitchen, bath, and dining room

Green curtains are a natural choice for a zen room 

With green curtain panels at the windows, you’ll feel as if you’re surrounded with a verdant garden. Add a few green throw pillows for a harmonious design.  Complete the room with decor inspired by the glow of a summer evening: amber glass, natural wood, and green ceramic help recall moments spent in the long, lush hours of summer.

A gorgeous green shower curtain  in a zen bathroom

The bath is a naturally zen room: water washes away the day and renews our spirits.  Treat this room as your personal spa and approach its decorations mindfully. After all, most bathrooms are small and overcrowding a small room breeds anxiety, not peace. Use a fabric shower curtain and top the windows with green valances to mimic the treetops out the window. Add decorative accents to achieve your zen design.

With a new green table runner, wooden bowls, and just-picked flowers on the table, you’ll create a welcoming table setting for yourself and for your guests.

Pacific Blue

With its creamy blue and white pattern,  our Pacific Blue print pulls from the blue in Memories of Shalimar.  The dark blue grounds the meadow green; together, one can find elements of earth and water (or land and sky). Blend these patterns  to create an understated bohemian look.

Saffron Marigold

Victorian Lilac Ivory & Gold

Here’s a way for you to mix similar patterns effortlessly. This ivory and gold reads as gentle and polished when used alongside Memories of Shalimar.  Both collections feature a floral emblem and gold paste accents, and neither print contains any competing colors.

Saffron Marigold

Mystic Amethyst

Pansies, violets, and orchids show us just how purple and green can join together in the most agreeable way.  Taking a cue from nature, we pair Mystic Amethyst with green Memories of Shalimar for a space to feel beautifully bohemian and otherworldly.
