Pattern talk:)



My passion for interiors and getting engaged in various styling activities over the years has given me immense satisfaction. 
While the trend and the style statement in interior vary from time to time all that we look forward is comfort and tastefully done decors. My mantra 'Live comfortably while you live comfortably with in your means'.

"While taking a look on wall coverings trends,visiting: 'Laurel and wolf ' on line interior design firm fascinated me for their nature inspired themes (Banana leaf, Palm leaf prints)on wall papers and accessories." Nature inspired wall coverings on botanical themes are always a fast fashion fix that can add style and architectural interest to any room. The soft touch decorative pillows or cushions with banana leaf , palm leaf prints on your couch can be extra inviting, super comfortable and change the entire mood of a room in a moment. 

It's pleasure to say that these natures designs are a fine blend of pattern and palette that reflects a unique and enduring sense of style. And also the green  palette takes us close to nature for the belief that  many live in  the world of concrete jungle and miss the touch of nature. 

Mixing these pattern to your decor for a home, pent house styling, beach house or a farm house can be appealing, absolute fun and like never before reflect your own sense of style with expression of freedom. 

My idea of incorporating these  patterns would be with color combinations of light green, white and light pink. One portion of the wall could be covered with wall papers of these prints and other three walls be painted either with the colors of white, light green and light pink. It gives the room a sophisticated look with proper arrangement of lighting and furnishing. 




A sitting room styled with pleasing palm prints curtains,wall papers and nature inspired cushion covers along with beautiful pieces of furniture enhances the beauty of the room. The two becomes inseparable and they complement each other so perfectly.


The exotic tropical banana leaf pattern adores the  wall of a striking bathroom.  


 A kitten cools it's heels on a couch with the beautiful back drop of banana leaf prints.    
                                                                   

                     Cane furniture's goes well with the wall decors.

Out Door Tables

Warm and sunny days are here again. It's going to be more warmer in our part of world in coming weeks. It's always nice and enjoyable past time  to set an out door table on the porch or on the terrace during summer. Tea or a meal in the garden among fresh leaves, vibrant colored flowers, herbs,fruits and vegetables are welcoming during summer long. Sharing my past out door settings from the album of Crystal Grandeur this week for all those who love to set seasonal out door settings in their gardens. Thank you.

Spring Time Table:))


Setting a Spring table with simple bunches of flowers brought in from the garden with the minimum of arrangement on a bright and breezy afternoon is a treat to yourself.  I love setting tables with colorful blooms and this time too doing a table with home grown fresh flowers and with Spring elements like bunnies and birdies was a pleasure. The lovely and perfumed jasmines  in the containers gave mild sweet fragrance and looked pretty on the table  to the contrast of red flowers. The  red colored flowers are little unusual to the colors of Spring flowers. All i could get from our garden are these flowers.

A Colourful Holi (Spring Festival ) Table:))

Season Spring is at your door step with weather perfect. Peninsular India has a special feel in the air at this time and the  special feeling leads to the celebration of India's Spring festival Holi. On Holi day every nook and corner of  the country specially Northern India erupts into vibrant colors. There is nothing like a special occasion or a festival when the air around you filled with colors. It is a wonderful feeling to get soaked in the spirit of true colors. The colors bring love, happiness and harmony to everyone and that makes this festival special & popular. Holi is the day where people splash colors on each other sing, dance around and visit one and other. As colors spread love and peace on this occasion,  people look forward for this festival.

The call of the colors inspired me to do a table-cape using different colored plates  and colorful home grown flowers. Rose napkins on the cups marks the arrival of the Spring.
