Over my head- Inspiration

...we are setting up our home and I am absolutely loving each and every bit of it. I don't want to rush through it...want to really plan it well...and enjoy the entire process.  Now, in the master bedroom I am unsure of what I want to have over the bed.  

 I want the room to have a personality...loads of color...fabrics..and also be functional with space for storage..etc...etc.. I was looking for different inspirations and thought I must share a few of them with you all.  
Sharing a few ideas....

1)  Framed art or perhaps family pictures...

2)  Art canvases

3)  ...or perhaps a shelf that will give me loads of decorating options.

4)  A canopy...I really want to go for this but I am contemplating how functional this would prove out to be.

Any suggestions guys..?? I will share pictures from our place as soon as I gather my stuff and start working on it.

Have a fun weekend... xoxo

The last few blooms..

... so its been snowing here for the past few days and it makes me miss my flowers and greens.  Having them around makes me feel more alive.  Sharing a few of my favorite pictures taken from last summer...

 I like this picture mostly for the purple ( love the color)....these flowers were so dainty and tiny added all the more to their pretty-ness...


This is a personal favorite picture.  I loved the colors and  the two little bees at work. 

A serene spot by the lake on the outskirts of Pittsburgh.  Just perfect to have your favorite book in hand and I could laze around here for hours.

Already miss being outdoors??  hhhmm..being indoors has its own perks...sipping on ginger chai as I write this post and feeling a creative high..!!  Looking forward to more blogging time this winter.

Happy Thanksgiving guys.  Have a wonderful rest of the week...xoxo..

Living Room- Update

Hope you all are having a great weekend.  This post was a much promised one for my friends..and I finally got around to clean my living room to click a few pictures.  Sharing the living room from my apartment. 

This rug started it all.. you may have guessed my undying love for chevron patterns by now...

My plants on the window sill..... I miss having a balcony sometimes...

The reading sheepskin rug with floor cushions is quite a cozy corner for getting some reading done.

The bookshelf by the reading nook.  A fab consignment store find. The ceramic plate is a DIY project and so is the glass pumpkin. I made it at a glass blowing workshop 2 years back. 

More knicks and knacks collected over the years...

My abstract painting in the backdrop. The little blue pillow cover is a DIY project made by my lovely sister in law with felt flowers.

and here is how it all looks together.  The wall that I call my "gallery"...wall decals occupy most the wall on the entry way on the left. 

 Hope you all liked warm little cozy place... I call home.  Let me know when you are coming over for a cup of chai.

Have a great rest of the weekend ..xoxo

Random Ramblings #1

 "Random ramblings"- sometimes random thoughts keep me very occupied ( I am sure it does the same to you)... it often arises from feeling nostalgic about home and family..pretty memories...or just simple "getting to know myself" phases... I thought it would be fun to pen these down in a series and share it with you here is the first one. .. 

   Truly desi at heart...and totally in love with bling bling...!!

Photographed above are traditional Indian bangles or chudiyan made in metal, clay or glass. Most of my collection stayed back in India and now I miss wearing these....

Hope you all are having a great favorite people....xoxo

The Blue Door

                                                                   The Blue Door

This blue door caught my attention yesterday as I was returning from work.... absolutely fell in love with the fall colours around it. This house almost seemed haunted and deserted till I saw some curtains move from behind that window.  Can you see a face there??

Have a great week ahead... xoxo
