A traditional and typical South Indian feel to the farm house at Kashid,Maharashtra..The architects have managed to create spaces using simple and traditional materials to reflect a contemporary style.The tiled roof and the flooring ,the ambience in seating arrangements and the pool reflects the personality of the people who owns it.

I love ethnic touches, but there's a fine line between "just a touch" to suddenly a bit too "theme-y." This interior from a recent Vogue Living Australia is a great example of the balance between staying modern, yet still keeping some ethnic flavor..
Indian interiors and moroccan interiors have too many in common to talk about.The vibratto in colour is the main thing.Many Moroccan-inspired interiors are full of rich vibrant color,just like the Indian ones and this room definitely has that. However, I love how they've kept it under control by using lots of black and white furnishings. Working with multiple patterns and motifs can be tricky, but we think they pulled it off quite well! What do you think?

A Visual treat to the eyes from this Winter.Come walk with me different homes and take exciting deco ideas and dont forget to write to me .
Home tours are common in Decor blogs.
I bring you some Indian Home Tours from magazines this winter.Some homes which have truly influenced me and the magazines are not thrown for kabadi because of the stylish truly Indian homes which they contain.They have been kept to imbibe the spirit which they contain ,as a way to boost my energy when i feel low,to try and impart atleast half of them in my home and also when i build a home of my own,a desire which will be accomplished in the near future.
Monumental in form and yet styled for contemporary living the Dickinsens home at Jaipur is purely in white ,but starking in its beauty.
Fine detailing from the local materials till the linen have been carefully picked up in this home have drawn me towards the home.White walls,white curtains,white table ware,white centrepieces ,white tablecloth,all in its beauty can be found in this home.
The walls are kept clear of any artworks but very subtly embellished with alcove details.
White with a hint of blue

Yellow jaisalmer and kota giving it warmth and cheer
