So pull up a chair, pour a cuppa and get prepared to spend some time ogling with me at this lovely home that is sure to pull every decor lover's heartstrings. I will not be able to do justice if I attempt to cover the beauty of this home in a single post. So there will be a PART TWO of this home tour which I am sure you will eagerly await by the end of this post.
|There are no rules set in stone, only kolam designs, including one painted the Indian customary greeting 'Namaste'|
|More colors from Paddy’s porch|
|The lit diyas cast a romantic glare on the porch and the family and friends love to drink in this view alike.|
As the evening unfurls, light seems to confer beauty and elegance casting a romantic glare on the porch. Aglow with the amber warmth of lit diyas, the family drinks the pleasant view. I wouldn’t mind a nibble and an ice tinkling drink here to wind down the rough day :). Though, with such beautiful porch, I wonder how she keeps onlookers at the bay.
|Nearly 4 foot vintage Brass elephant that was yet another stroke-of-luck find on Craigslist several years ago|
By now, I am lusting after Paddy’s awe inspiring collection and the stories behind each of these dramatic pieces are equally magical. At display here is one of her prized Teppanom statue: “This original Teppanom Statue in Silver (there are several replicas in the market but real ones are limited) was sold to us by a retired couple who were downsizing and they had actually bid and won this piece at an Antique auction!”
|The cabinet at the entrance is a vintage looking, made-in- India piece the couple found in a furniture store|
|The carved Mahogany mirror in the corridor is an Indonesian Import|
|A vintage brass vase and an Antique kum kum container is placed on this pedestal|
Each and every corner lifts up our senses. A closer look at an intricate details of 'Zarokha" and a vintage brass vase and an antique Kum-kum container.
And as we end our part-1 here, I am leaving you with a peek of what is in store for you in part-2 . Trust me, even a glimpse of what you saw thus far will not prepare you for the visual dazzle you are in for in the next part!
Me and Paddy, both had been mulling over the possibility of this home tour but the wee-bit long post took good amount of overflowing exchange of emails before we inked the deal. In the course of our conversation, we have cemented good friendship and the joy and pleasure of bonding with this beautiful lady is precious. I thank her and her family for inviting us virtually in her home and wishing them all the love, luck and happiness today and always!
