All About My Drawing Room...:):)


The drawing room is the warm and friendly room in a house & yet it is a place where one can harbor their  collection of personal treasures as well. The name 'drawing room' is derived from the Sixteenth century term 'With-drawing' room. In some countries the term drawing room is not used as much as it once was. In India it is still widely used, since colonial days.

One of my most vivid memories of child hood was scribbling and drawing on the drawing room walls :P. They are the sweet memories of a childhood past....:):)

Decorating has always been a natural instinct, & I have always loved the opportunity to decorate. Influenced by many things .... It's a subject I am most passionate about. It was a dream job for me, to do up our rectangular living room. It was all about fitting the furniture in its right place, balancing colours with each other & the lighting arrangements & along with all the finer things that the living room could hold.

I preferred a velvet cotton mix furnish for the sofa with a naturally inspired pattern and palette with the belief that the best fabrics give a room it's living color. It was my desire to have a crystal chandelier for their beauty and value. And by hanging one it gave a finishing touch to the room.

Thank You for your visit to my Living Room :):)

  8. I love your 'darwing room,' (a very British term). The couch's upholstery is very p´retty and I love your coffee table, lovery and Oriental. I like the way you decorated that chest and the lovely things on top. Now you know I would adore your chandy, as it's very similar in shape to my Antique one in the dining room, right? Thanks for sharing your great room. Thanks you for your always sweet and kind comments. Big hugs,

    I do love the chairs in the background near the window. That's a dream chairs for me. I had similar coffee table but as I am changing my dark wood to white, I sold it to my cousin.
