My Home - My Pride (Tour of Living Room)

Since I have joined this blogging, my powerful nighty sleep has been disappeared. I have been trying to coddle myself to take much needed beauty sleep but nah, the pondering won't let me go back to sleep.

Up in the early wee hours, just about to denote another piece from a place very close to my heart - MY HOME.

As I read once for my chalkboard collection:

"Home is where, love resides,
 memories are created,
   friends always belong
      laughter never ends."

I can personally write and resemble all the statements are true for us and for  my home.

Today's room of the day will be our Living Room. I always insist and want Indian influence in my home décor. Though, I don't hesitate to mix and match ethnic and contemporary concepts in my decors. This room is highlighted with the peacock blue (MORPINCHH) with the hint of fuchsia . 
Even though I strongly believe that candles and flowers are must for any decors I consider myself unfortunate for not being able to have my own garden for all the season to use fresh flowers for my decors. Being in the coldest part of the world (at least for me), we get to enjoy summer only few months. Oh well, I found a loophole and created the beauty with these artificial ones.



The highlight of this room is the peacock fire place cover. It was a strong reason for us to lean on that peacock blue colour for the room.
These 2 sleek but cosy chairs from pier 1, created inviting appearance with it.
 
Wanted an unusual frame to go with the flow, found the perfect one which suits the entire area so well. Also want to draw your attention to  my no wire lamp, which is the best find I have from Home Goods is just perfect with my flameless candle.
  Before we move further down, I want to confess that me and Aj heart Ganesha. You are about to visualize our 15+ years collections with few new additions in the room.
Many treasured collectibles are waiting to lease on life for a perfect corner, room or wall in new home. Some specially handpicked and bulky brass collectibles from my husband’s travel are still on mission to fit in the home.
Occasionally, with a glint of change in my mind, I take pleasure of transiting them in different corners of home
The modern meets the traditional with the leather couch.
The credit for the modern look in this room goes to my husband Ajay. He fell head over heels for the sofa and I had to incorporate it with the bright colored cushions to get this look.

 We both are avid hosts and needed extra space for our gatherings in the room, we initiated to look for something that adds additional sittings in the room and found perfect one, which adds 2 more extra sittings in the room. The center table brings 2 more tables out from both the ends.
 
 
 
Now the collections show off.  I wanted to have my all Ganesha in one place instead of scattering around the room since I have many of them, but I do take them out on a tour to change the décor atmosphere around us. After lots of hunting found the perfect base to display all.


Yes, we have it all -  lazily swinging jhula one, kukum sprinkled shell one, few being in the form of  the baby and also dancing mundra ones.


I had pleasure sharing our flawless room through my blog, which is our heart in the home. The inspirations and ideas are created after lots of research and my passion of interiors.
 

The modern and traditional fusion in our home is pleasing for us as well as our visitors. Hope your stay at our room was pleasant. Hoping to  share detailed family room tour in near future. Till than cheers!

    1. Hi Dj, thanks for visiting. I had the same space open but I disliked the concept and with some extra upgrade I got it covered from the builder. You can try wall dividers there. Look for decorative wall dividers and get the perfect one for your room. They are with usually 3 dividers so easier to fit in any given space. You may search on Google for more images and you will find plenty of them. Hope you can find something that fits perfectly.

    1. Hi Hani, thank you, I am glad you liked it. The display case is from one of the local furniture store here. I knew I wanted something big to fit all of them so as soon as I had my eye on it, I knew I was having it ;)
      You may try big furniture stores as they often have these as bookcase on their display. Good luck hunting!

  14. What a beautiful room and what unique ideas. I love the idea of fusion, and in my home, because my husband is Italian, we have fused new with old and Italian/English furniture. It works for us. I think that what this blog proves is that design perfection can be achieved with the blending of as many ideas as possible. That’s the beauty that can’t be achieved in one-dimensional design.
