Changing Seasons

Autumn/Fall is officially here and this means a display of beautiful colors on trees and stepping into cooler days. There is something about autumn that I really love, it sets such a warm stage for the grey cold winter days ahead. Time to curl up in a blanket with a book and hot chaimaybe? A time of holiday glitter and cheer, a time to while away dreaming of seasons to change again :)

All pics taken by me at my home. Please do not copy.

Beautiful Day

My weekend was busy yet nice and these beautiful Dahlias that I picked up from the local farmer's market made for a perfect end to the weekend and a great start to the week!
Have a great week :)

The festivals are here!

It's a long weekend and I am glad that it is! It's been a long week and tell me about festivals on a weekday! Here's a glimpse of what I did for "Ganesh Chaturthi". I just kept it very simple and let the natural elements speak for themselves. My husband and I made the idols from clay as a going-green thing :)

I hope all of you out there are having a great weekend and bringing in the festivities!

Yellow Mellow

A few yellow blooms sit by my kitchen sill to mellow me down after a busy start to the week.
Have a great rest of the week!

Absolutely Beautiful Things

As I was browsing today to get my dose of color and home decor high, I came across this picture on Anna Spiro's blog. Anna Spiro is an interior designer and successfully runs her own design store "Black & Spiro". She very recently launched her online shop aptly called Absolutely Beautiful Things. This image spoke to me at so many levels! The colors in it jump right at you and would sure keep away those winter greys!

It's Monday and I am at home (not usually the case) as am feeling a bit under the weather. So, I decided to make the best use of it and shot some frames of my apartment home. There's something tranquil about being home on a weekday. For me there's no better medicine than sipping on a cup (or a few ;-) ) of chai sitting on my couch to make me feel better!

Hope your week has started off great and if not I hope these pics cheer you up!

Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganesh Chaturthi is around the corner and I am very excited about what I want to do this year. Growing up in Bombay this festival of 10 days was always so much fun! People irrespective of age, sex, caste and creed used to come together to celebrate the 'Elephant God'. I have many a fond memories of celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi back home, not to forget all the delicious modaks and other goodies. Even back then it was a way to explore my creative side with the decorations :-) The image below is from last year. Do you celebrate this festival? If so, what are your plans?

Food for thought?

I have started off reading this book "The Hugry Tide" by Indian author Amitav Ghosh. I must admit I have read very few Indian authors but this so far has been a good read. I made some sabudana kichdi for breakfast to accompany a good read. A good sumptuous and fulfilling weekend ;)

Happy Monday!

A birthday party, few Hitchcock movies, bike shopping and a local art festival! My weekend was rather packed with things to do, but a good one all in all. Just clicked some pics of a corner in my apartment home :) Few roses from my patio garden sit in a corner and a new addition on my wall is the clear glass framed flowers from the art festival. Funny that I am even saying this, but Happy Monday!

Flowers to cheer

It's kind of a gloomy start to the weekend ( I mean weather-wise). Today feels like one of those beginning of the Fall days. To me flowers bring in energy especially on such days when the sun isn't out. They are also a great way to add color to your space! I hope these cheer you as much as they cheer me :)

I am very passionate about interior design and especially love surrounding myself with a lot of color. Recently I have added photography to the list of my interests and what more delightful than bringing together these two interests? The above picture is that of my apartment the way it is right now because I like changing things out and am big about trying to recycle fabrics that I have collected with time. Hope you like it!
