A few corners from our new home...

Been completely submerged in home work and playing the role of a domestic goddess;-)
Here are a few casual captures from our new home, where I am still in the process of decorating & re-decorating. Athangudi tiles travelled all the way from Tamilnadu to our new apartment. Love the feel of these handmade tiles under my feet. (The more you walk barefoot on these tiles, the more they shine:-)I have open shelves in many rooms, it breaks the monotony and creates space for adding interesting elements.I love open shelves in the kitchen. Yes, the little black board has found it's place in the new kitchen too:-)A quiet corner with morning light filtering through the coloured patterned glass windows.
Will be back to some serious blogging the coming year:-) See you all then.

Wishing all of you happy holidays!

Archana:
The tiles are beautiful. I think I would have to seek your help for my own apartment. Lovely and so very Indian. The rest of the home is so very beautiful too.
And say my hi to the little blackboard!

XO!

Hello Archana,

I am the 50th person to follow your blog. Congratulations on that
;)

I am a 3rd year student of Interior Architcture and have enoutered your blog accidently.
You ae doing a great job.

I wanted to ask, do you do the photography for your blog yourself?
I must say the photogrpahs are well-composed and the colors really so pop. I am interested in photography as a serious hobby and that's why I am commenting on them.

Never the less, keep blogging whilst I catch up on your previous ones..

Cheerios

Wonderful work Archana. You really are extremely gifted in putting small simple things & making them look awesome. Ive just moved homes - trying to take a few ideas from your various comments/sites. I really do follow your blog quite regularly. Keep up the good work. Love from Dubai.

Zaara said...

I utterly randomly found your blog the other day, and I am just drooling at all the photos. I love the orange color you've used in your home, I'm poised to whip out a paintbrush (or a phonebook to call a painter - more probable) and do soemthing similar in my home! Lovely blog and so inspiring!!!
