Home Obsessed!

Everyone has their own version of homes; our home is an extension of our selves. An outlet for my creativity, a source of pleasure and comfort. You may also call it a bit of an obsession and a culmination of all the best décor thoughts that I had stored while throwing in some curve balls.
Though, this home, which has been a work of passion, will complete four years in May…and what a perpetual journey it has been. Our home has been pampered, valued, twisted, often spoiled and above all loved. My mind was crowded with mystical million thoughts when the process actually begun. How I wish it was as easy as a click of a finger. My husband and I together dissected every décor thought constructively with our chosen theories, that often lead to hot discussions also ;). Looking back at it, we feel proud to have a home that is filled with the welcoming warmth that reflects our personal ethos and style. 
Somewhere in between this home philosophies and aesthetism, my blog took shape. A blog that has not pushed but has gently opened that door to expand
my passion for the creative abilities. A blog that declares my love for home out loud. I am a décor junkie and this little passion of mine just satiates my heart’s desire but when I hear from you all… be it for our Ganesha collection, our home décor or brimming brass, I feel I've done the right job. We all just need a gentle prod to credence our vision and I feel elated when I see sent in pictures by my readers, that my posts are just doing that for many of you out there. Thank you all for being on this journey with me.
I have seen people with fitness obsessed, food obsessed, fashion obsessed but I am home obsessed...I said it. It is very important for  me the way my home looks...whether there is a crowd or just me, I want my home to feel intimate. But wait...if you are here, I believe you are also mildly into it to...;).So let's together make a place that is warm, inviting and beautiful...a place that you are proud of...a place where memories are made. Until we meet again, have a great weekend and bump around on Instagram and Facebook, toodles!

Chic Touches of Cherry Blossoms!

Spring….the time of rebirth and renewal of gorgeous here. Finally the warm weather has settle in and I am absolutely celebrating the return of warm breezes and sunlit days….our ravine backyard has started giving us the hint of resuming our love affair with the season. The trees are starting to bud and songbirds are returning back in our ravine. My tulips are breaking the ground and soon will be showing a hint of color. Though, I am a new schooler and learning to graduate with the familiarities of planting, I am determined to embrace my inner florist this season :).  
Regardless of that fact that I have a brown thumb and I don’t keep indoor plants thriving…I always appreciate the happy side-effect of having beautiful flowers around the house.  And with the transition in season, huge splashes of spring flowers around the home are a sure-fire way to cheer anyone up. Unlike last year’s tulip touches, this year chic touches of cherry blossoms are spreading the array of beautiful pink around the home. A very thoughtful friend of mine lugged away few stems of these beauties from a park where the park officials were pruning the tree due to heavy rain. Now these short lived flowers are ‘pinkified’ modestly in our humble abode ;).

In our first vignette, pink blossoms have picked up on the brass accents beautifully and they seamlessly blend with the existing hot pink color and décor accessories in our living room. Beautifully cupped here with my brass tea kettle they lend a delicate touch of spring and I am so loving it.   
Grouping can be more romantic to add an instant floral fabulousness around you. Graceful bunch of bright blooms are emulating their presence here with copper, silver and brass all together! 
Every spring I go ahead and pile on colors in our home with spring accessories, delicate pink here is just blending in effortlessly with all the rest. Especially paired with an equally eye catching vase, these beauties are standing their own with an oriental touch on this setting.
You know me, I drain every last bit of my flowers and they literally go through a process until their survival and that’s why I didn’t have heart to toss away petals also…hence these pretty pink blossom petals are scattered in urli and big brass ice bucket (an impulse buy and a new hunt from an antique craft sale) for Ganeshji and Buddhaji also ;).
Flowers in any season radiate serenity for me. They are naturally welcoming to enhance some freshness in any place. Until my outdoor blooms rest a spell…I am all set indoors to nestle in the company of cherry blossoms after all day’s work. Are you spring ready yet? I do share bite size ideas on Instagram and Facebook, so stay connected peeps and have a wonderful spring time, toodles!
