India Inspired Style

Hello everybody! Don’t you absolutely love it when you see an image and think that this could be so easily translated to your home?

For those of us in India, we already have an abundance of gorgeous fabric tucked away in those nasty Godrej cupboards – why not display some of them? Keep the dust in mind, of course, and take out the most hardy ones. Keep that wedding trousseau firmly wrapped inside :)

All these images are from the same home and you can see how ethnic chic blends in beautifully with their decor. Try hanging a colourful kurta or embroidered children’s outfit on a wall paired with other interesting objects. Or just one massive mirror-work ghagra on a wall – stunning!

I’ve already done this in my son’s playroom – two long strings of colourful cloth birds adorning a doorway. An easy and inexpensive decor item.

Our birds!

Makoto Kagoshima

I came across the beautiful ceramics of Japanese ceramic artist Makoto Kagoshima recently and wanted to share them with you. There’s not much information available about the artist in English, but he does have a website where you can buy some of his stunning work.

This particular image brought to mind a Gond painting I once saw. Isn’t it charming?

I’d like to live here…

What a stunning colour combination! Instead of going for the traditional white house, this black and green house really stands out against the mountains and the meadow. I’d love to see the interiors of such a bold home.
