A corner from my home ..

July 28, 2011 § 7 Comments

Actually a corner of my kitchen counter, truth be told,  but for dramatic effect I went with the above headline 🙂

These are tube rose ( rajanigandha)  from my backyard.

This vase is actually a water jug but I never used it as a jug . It was a present from my neighbor before we moved to our house . I love this jug/vase , so gorgeous and all those colors !!!

The framed picture , pardon me for the poor light ,my 8 yr old son drew it.

Hope you liked this corner of my kitchen.


A Belated Inspiration…

I missed ” Monday Inspiration ” yesterday, it’s not that I was not inspired but life happened . Anyways, this bathroom below just caught my eyes the other day while  I was surfing the web looking for unique ideas . Though I m not a big fan of the colour pink or any of it’s various shades but this bathtub just got me  and flamingo wallpaper just compliments the bathtub more !!


Aha , West Elm !!!

Have you seen the new arrivals at West Elm ??? If not ,you should visit but let me warn you that you won’t be able to leave soon so visit only when you have some time in your hand . And if  have already been there no need to read my post !!! You are probably so busy over there you are probably not even visiting me !!!

Anyways , let’s see what I am talking about ( but these pictures are only a glimpse of what they have !)

As you can already guess that I love pillows !!.

How are you this Monday ?? We had a  quiet weekend. Last Friday , few friends came over for dinner and the rest of the weekend was spent at home lounging . This week Southern California is supposed to heat up, yes we will be experiencing triple digits !!! And to top that we have a hectic weekend ahead . My 8 yr old has his piano recital , then he is off to a surfing camp for a week !! This is his first time alone camping with unknown kids and adults. I am having an anxiety attack and he is so cool about it ..and his little brother is also having anxiety attack (lol !!!) that big bro will not be home to give him company.We also have only 2 weeks left before school starts for the year. I know most places doesn’t even start till September but we close early so..I have get to shopping too for back to school.. ok lots of ranting…

What’s inspiring you this Monday ???

Happy Weekend !!!

This is what you see from the sidewalk..


This is just by the door ..


Just as you enter, I don’t have a foyer or mudroom, on the right hand you see this IKEA mirror ..



A small World Market rug on the tiled floor ..


On the left my mom’s handmade Kantha work :
