Captivating Colours and My Living Room

A Contemporary Interior manages to incorporate the traditional elements while maintaining a fresh appeal.At home we try to incorporate the traditional elements to a great extent ....

Flowers are found everywhere in India-strewn before visiting guests ,offered at altars in homes and temples and lines up or centred on the dinner table for natural adornment.The vibrant hues of the petals are used to shower a room with radiance or simply to introduce some enlivening accents.Either way the assertive combination conveys exuberance and energy..

a wooden chest and some antique wooden chairs with cane seating and an antique book rack an all time favourite

Furniture at our home has been limited to a few pieces.One of these is the "bajot" a typical low table found throughout in India.This has been pressed into service by us as a centre table or sometimes as a handsome resting spot for favourite objects,such as urulis,a bowl of roses,or a bowl filled with fragrant petals or an inlaid box or sometimes serve tea too...

Will surely share lots more,keep visiting....
