  1. Nice home :) I admire the musty look on the walls. Somehow they blend with everything in the room. Personally, I am not bold enough to keep this look in my house as I am a complete neat freak. Those walls tell the story of many years of being much remind me of those old rest houses. I wish they also added colour like her.

  2. Gorgeous space, Lakshmi! Thank you for posting. Which issue is this in? The article date reads May 2011. I'll see if I can get a copy from the library - I'd love to see it in print!

  3. Fabulous stuff on the walls...wish they had taken close ups...I am not sure I like the walls...not sure, if it is painted that way to give an old wall look...or it is all the water seepage and wall going musty...hope it is the former...

    Thanks for sharing

  4. the walls and what's on the walls
