Oriental Chic

Hello beautiful readers !
I know, it has been a while...
As the 'real world' is becoming more and more demanding with two little ones, an extremely busy corporate type husband, a home to look after, as I'm investing more and more time to my first love 'music'...and yes, most importantly I do not post just for the sake of posting. 

Well, today is different, I have a few more hours to update my blog...a quick post on one of my favourite topics 'Oriental Design' .




As an Indian girl, based out of Singapore, my humble style is an informal and relaxed one, based on what 'We love as a family'. I always go for something which is practical (keeping in mind that we have two kids at home), easy to maintain and comfortable.


 I feel that, for our nest the 'rustic Indian touch' goes hand-in-hand with the 'simple-serene Oriental look'.




...and here comes the magic of  'Eclectic Design' . The fun of 'mix and match'. It is 'that particular style' which can be evolve and constantly updated. I love to create an 'Eclectic Design Scheme' for our home which can bring many possibilities in decor and can reflect my family's interest as a whole.



For me, the most important rule for decor is 'To Break the Rules'. Yes, I'm a rule breaker in that sense.  I love to hear my heart and can't follow any design school blindly . Hope, it reflects in my home.


 Treasures from our travel to different countries, antiques,  even flea market junks can add that 'magical touch' to my home. 






 Buddha from  Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, sits peacefully on a corner table in our living room, while the early morning sun creates a few blissful moments. I love to enjoy my morning tea here with the husband.


I fell in love with this antique Chinese tea pot when I first saw this in a tiny-shabby shop in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I knew that it had to be mine. 'Red' is a very powerful colour as per Chinese art and these intricate details help to add some character.



What is your style ? 
Classic, Country, Retro, Shabby-Chic, Modern ?
Would love to hear from you as always.



Now, heartiest welcome to all my new friends on this little blog.
 Always look forward to your valuable thoughts.  
Wish you all a lovely week ahead.
