Doll up your Dining Room

I am keen in sharing this post as lately I have been intimidated by long  tables used in the dining area.

Just creatively work on the surroundings and you can end up with amazing look with your plain table.Work with different finish and different decor pieces and see the change. Long tables are apt for any look might it be rustic look, sophisticated or even bohemian.

Here goes some of my favourite looks- (1)

Bohemian dining set up with colourful chair seats and crafty hanging lampshades.

And I love the decor piece in the center. Old vintage books piled up and displayed in an artistic way.

Artistic setting – transparent chairs added to impart a spacious look. Smart idea for small spaces.

And the nice upholstered chair just gives a tasteful look with the simple wooden table.

Sophisticate dining set up with marble top , beautiful flowers and elegant lighting.

Cosy set up with beautiful carved chairs and handmade shade.

The stripes and the colours just enhances the look.

Rustic look for a countryside home.

Pretty table set up even to enjoy food in your backyard. The old table is so nicely used, with the paints coming off it just adds  character to the whole dining set up. and the Chairs of course enhances the look more. So if you have an old table think twice before throwing it away!!


enjoy !!

rooms with grey couches copy

I have a grey couch and was looking for some decor options for living room with grey couch. And I came across some lovely colour options to go with grey. (After all its not a boring colour !). If you have a colourful taste then you can give a dash of colour to the monochromatic decor with accent decor pieces. With grey you can experiment with colours like Rust, Pastel colour tones, Fuchsia, Blue etc.

Its interesting to see combination of soft green, grey & white…gives a quite bit of country side feeling with rustic wooden furnitures around.


The scandinavian simplistic decors however are my favourites.

With a minimalistic look and with few decor pieces I love the outcome of the monochromatic setting.

Retro accessories have always been mine favourites. I stumbled across some accessories for kitchen and thought of compiling them all and making a post for you guys.

SMEG is the brand which makes these retro fridges. You can also get them in different sizes and colours.

These are available online but be prepared to shell out some extra money for these lovely refrigerators.


The red one just enhances the simple decor..

I was going through some my pictures i took while visiting the grand fort in Jodhpur. And here I pulled out some pictures for you where one cannot stop admiring the grand windows of the forts; with splendid architecture and intense detailing.

Immense admiration i have for the artisans behind these work.

Summer is here



Scorching sun, sweat and dehydrated skin indicate the arrival of summer. But I look at summer as a  season in which you can shed all the extra pounds you have gained in winter. I agree we have very less options in vegetables (actually it really sucks eating the same vegetables in the same week). But eat as much as the juicy fruits you can…which will keep you hydrated. Include the fruits in your diet-  juicy cucumbers, watermelons, honeydew melons, oranges, lychee, papaya and enjoy respite from scorching heat. Smoothies and fresh juices are easy addition to breakfast. And ofcourse keep drinking lots of water.

Avoid junk foods and stay healthy.
