Ethnic Interiors...

The Ethnic and much stylish interiors and some corners of my sister's house(my mom's ,elder sisters daughter) in a sleepy town in North Kerala..,my maternal village.Surrounded by lush greenery of a simple village,the interiors have been kept minimalistic and also stylish.Inorder to keep up with the environment that it has been set into,the interiors resemble the ancient tharavadu style with courtyards and plants that grow in it,swings and sloping mangalore tiled roofs and surrounded by white long columns in the verandahas..unfortunately only the interiors have been shot and exeriors will be added later.
Hope the images do the justice for all my readers...

We make it a point to be here once a refresh ourself,and to breathe fresh air....

Wooden Beauties

Happy New Year 2011 !,a little late though.I love all of you who have stayed and come back patiently despite my erratic schedule in blogging..I wish you all a fantastic new year. I hope it’s filled with a lot of incredible things. Love and Laughter. Everything you hope for.

Wood is an extremely durable material used to craft utensils from time immemorial.
Wooden utensils have a warmth that has always fascinated me.
Wooden kitchen utensils are crafted with quality, balance and usefulness in mind.
I cannot resist picking one up during my numerous trips to the antique market.
Be it mellow mangoes, tangy oranges, lovely frangipani blossoms or patina covered cow bells, everything seems home on a wooden pan.
