Hello, Hello!

Dear all, sorry I've been such an errant blogger for the past few weeks....there's a lot keeping me busy/distracted, but I'm still here....... I loved reading ALL your comments in the previous post (and the other comments on earlier posts as well). I will get to work on the baby elephant and post pictures once I'm done, but till then I just had to share some pretty pictures that I came across on Apartment Therapy (some of my design-junkie friends may have already come come across these, but I couldn't resist sharing....). You know the funny thing is that the moment I saw these pictures I was reminded of my sister's saree....she has one in just this color palette....it's a soft-green silk with silver "peepal patti" bootis (motifs of the peepal/bodhi tree leaf). The silver has aged to a beautiful antique tarnish over the years. Enjoy this room......

This room is entered in the "room for color" contest going on over at apartment therapy right now. If you like it, you can go and cast your vote for it. The owner, Carla, has described the source of her inspiration as the "Luna moth". Here are the other pictures of the room....


Such a serene space! Love those candles a-glowing in the lantern!!!



I love how she's utilized the display space above the cabinet. I'm so stealing this idea!! How festive would a couple of those globe lights look for diwali? I would go for bright colors, clustered together in a corner on the floor. Lights during the colder months pretty much add all the warmth and drama needed to make your home more welcoming, don't you think? (PS: That chandelier is pretty cool too!). There are a couple of other rooms that I fell head-over-heels in love with, which I'll be sharing with you later, but if you want to look at more real-home eye candy, head on out to the contest now...


And have you entered the fabulous CSN giveaway I'm hosting? If not, do so now! Contest ends Friday the 15th of October.........
