Cathy Henry will tell you, Creating an exotic retreat is an in expensive and very easy thing when you use saris for your bedroom decorating ideas.
You can usually find gorgeous silk embroidered saris for sale in eBay and other sources for under $20. Each sari is approx. 46″ wide and about 6 yards long. This gives you ample materials for a wide range of luxurious accessories. By suspending two wooden dowels from the ceiling, one at the foot of the bed and one at the head, you can drape a sari over the rods to create a very opulent canopy over the bed.
Paint your walls a rich jewel tone to compliment your fabrics. Deep red, purples and midnight blues work well. Cut the sari in half and sew rod pockets into the top to create airy sheer silk drapery panels.
Use the various patterns in a typical sari to create a variety of bedroom decorating ideas such as pillows and cushions, table runners, mirror swags and even bedding. The possibilities are only as limited as your imagination!
Remember, you are trying to create a very opulent retreat so do not forget the embellishments such as tassels, fringe and braid.
