Casual, relaxed, capturing elegant simplicity and the down to earth charm that is what we always wanted to achieve at home. A world of color, textures, unique décor and warm hospitality too. If you are looking for something like that, you've come to the right place. The furniture at home are quite simple and old! We love the old fragrance and the old wood and the good old dents in these furniture.
Our style at home has evolved over the years. As the place is rented..much focus goes for the furniture at our home. I love mixing textures and neutrals but adding just a touch of color and mostly pastel shades. A pop of colour definitely will be there from the flowers.
The taste for textures change with seasons'too..And the "day bed" at home has helped me to keep my love for cushions and seasons at home alive. The day bed also has changed with our priorities..It was the first piece of furniture that we got made .. it didn't have legs and was flat earlier .. and then one Diwali we decided to give it legs to give it some height and elegance.. and on goes the story of the day bed!
Bedspreads, cushion covers or an old quilt thrown on the day bed, gives a cozy effect to the room. Can you all imagine the deep sense of tranquility and contentment that the day bed brings us?
Always having loved the unique texture of old natural wood and the simple details, many months ago we saw a wooden patterned screen in one of the dilapidated corners of the furniture market and the decision was impulsive to get it back home and give it a new life. As the decision was impulsive, the thought next was where to place it? And now there it stands behind the day bed!
To sum up, a small space with its furniture and accessories that has a feeling of simplicity and warmth..An eclectic comfortable space surrounded by warm colours..Absolutely simple in design.
(Not that we had so much space in our small home..but we didn't want that amazing piece to lose its life in the corner of a market:)
