It speaks quietly Tropical-'The Asian Tropical Style'

[Red plumeria and river pebbles on a mother of pearl shell dish
- refined simplicity of tropical living and my humble abode]

A home can be a sensual delight
with simple or intriguing arrangements of
natural materials.

Free flowing space,
airy and light open plan residence,
organic space which is in tune with mother nature
evokes the 'Asian Tropical Style'

Thai raw silk cushion cover 
and silk throw from Cambodia
beautifully compliments 
the Vietnamese wooden fisherman.

Go tropical...
Go natural...
Go green...
it is artfully unexpected :)

A study corner with natural flair...
 Dokra musician from Kolkata (West Bengal, India),
framed tribal art
and wooden 'snake boat race' figure from Kerala (India),
sits happily with green succulent 
potted in a clay planter.

 [Today...on the coffee table :)]

Touch of wood, clay, bamboo, 
coconut twigs or sea shells
blended with 
raw silk, fresh orchids and gorgeous plants
beautifully paints the composed and stylish picture of 
Asian Tropical Decor.

 [A quirky play on design details

 Asian Tropical Style is casually elegant,
relaxed and free flowing,
comfortable and crisp,
whimsical yet functional...
 and just perfect for today's busy life.

What do you say...?..:)

P.S. : I am extremely sorry for the infrequent activity on this little blog for the last couple of months. The 'off-line life' is becoming increasingly demanding and juggling between different role(s) is tough sometime. I know my beautiful readers are truly understanding. I'm going to answer all your e-mails ASAP. 
Thanks again for your unconditional love, support and  time.

Hello,Sanghamitra! It has been a long time! I'm glad to see you back! Your photos are so vivid and bright and beautiful!!! Each one has at least one element that really speaks to me. I love the color of the raw silk cushion cover. It's very subtle against the brighter colors that surround it. Your use of organic elements is just wonderful!!! It's amazing how the simplest things can hold such power!!!

I hope things slow down at least a little bit for you so that you can have time to relax a bit. I will be having shoulder surgery in about a month, so I am working extra hard now to get a lot of things done since I'll be out of commission for several months after the surgery. It's funny what we sometimes take for granted!

Have a beautiful week, and thank you for sharing your beautiful photos!

Thank you for visiting my tea post and leaving a nice comment.
I have enjoyed seeing the beauty inside your home, so different from the muted pastel tones in mine.
The dish with the flower and rocks speaks of tranquility.
Hopefully you will find a balance in your life to continue blogging at will.
