Hello everyone! First thing first, I would like to thank Vandana for showing courage to feature an ordinary home in her blog, a home that no other blogger (including me) thought of featuring. She is the most modest person I have ever come across in this virtual world of blogging and she is the one who always encourages me with her generous comments. I am glad that we crossed path.
I am decor aficionado. Home, to me, is a place that I miss even if I go to exotic locations or any other place in the world. I love decorating my home as much as I love blogging. I like my home to be unique to me. In my opinion, your abode should not be a carbon copy of homes featured in magazines ;instead it should speak about you.
I love warm and earthy tones and hence stuff that falls in the higher wavelength side of the spectrum finds a way in my home decor. My love affair with Buddha is never ending; the figurine itself has the power to emanate serenity. In the picture below, the tulip flowers are handmade; Buddha and vase are hand painted to suit my decor style.
My favorite thing about decorating is that I keep changing every room’s decor according to my mood and season. I like to customize things around me. A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. So I add lots of character and drama with accessories
Adjacent to the gallery wall in my living room is the wall that has Batik paintings gifted to me by my brother-in-law. I love warm colors used in the paintings that perfectly blend with my living room's decor.
Opposite to this wall is my balcony garden and sometimes I pull a chair and love sipping my evening tea there enjoying the view of my sun kissed balcony garden. As our apartment is on the top floor I got the privilege of having open to sky terrace and that makes my home airy and filled with ample natural light. I enjoy the view when light streams through the curtains and reaches to every part of my living room.
Everyday nature offers me something new to look at and admire.
View from my balcony is always so enticing that I go berserk clicking images of setting sun and kaleidoscope of colors.
I work from home so I needed a dedicated place for my work and hence, a part of my living room got converted into my home office. You can read about this complete makeover on my blog here.
I surround myself with the things I love, my desk clearly reflects that.Wall shelves can instantly change the look of the place, you just change the knick-knacks you keep on the shelf and it will completely transform the place
When my husband and I decided to buy a home we were determined that it should be on the top floor so that we get maximum light and sun. We are lucky enough to have found such home and my love for gardening grew even wilder when I moved to my new home. Here is my sunny balcony.
|I love to paint and I don't restrict myself to one medium or surface. I like to paint everything around me. Most of the planters in my balcony garden are my hand-painted ones.|
My balcony garden becomes more lively and colourful during rains.
|Every evening's ritual of lighting diya and placing it near Buddha makes this place look even more mesmerizing.|
A peek into my kitchen explains that I have minimalist aesthetics. I keep this place functional so just a few decor accessories are enough to make it look better.
|As I said I love rotating decor
accessories, so my tiny owl planter sometimes sits on the wall shelf of my work space and sometimes it flies into the kitchen. |
I love clean edges and sleek look of my kitchen. Though I have lots of other things that I want to include in my kitchen's decor but my freelancing work is keeping me too busy to do anything else.
Here is a guest bedroom that recently got some serious makeover. I am quite happy with the results.
