In fact, the bedrooms have been revamped - except for ours, it is very retro.

We have pirate bed linen for the little bedroom!

Would you like a Pirate Theme Callistemon like one of our DGS’s ?😁

I've decided that my house decor is far too safe and boring!

Now, if I've won a substantial amount on the Premium Bonds this month I shall have a total revamp.
I know it won't be a million.

What more do you need? The pic posted by GagaJo has all you need, it’s gorgeous.

I'm loving that picture, there's several ideas in there. Keep them coming....

Mosquito nets a la 4poster bed style?

I need one of those!
Little b****s get me every night.

But you have to have a ceiling fan! They're not cheesy. Perhaps like the ones they have in Raffles Hotel in Singapore which are not the usual type.

Dark wood or rattan and cane furniture with white linen, and a sisal or rush floor mat?

Mango wood bedroom furniture? Seagrass rugs by the bed?

This is lovely.

White bedding and soft furnishings? Large leafed plants, to give a tropical feel?

Dark wooden, plantation era furniture (lightened up by the white fabrics).

Apart from white shutters & a dark wooden floor what else? I don't want to put a cheesy fan on the ceiling but I need ideas for furniture that reflect that feel.. & no Vera Duckworth beach scene wallpaper! Tropical island luxury getaway. grin Even ££££ ideas are ok because I could work out a way of doing them on the cheap. Thank you!
