Hey guys how are you all doing ? We are into June already….whew, the year is literally whizzing past. I have written a lot about plants (I am totally obsessed with them I tell you) and somehow interiors have taken a back seat somewhat. Drawing inspiration from my own living room, let’s look at some stunning living rooms from homes around the world where plants along with the intelligent use of colour have transformed spaces into the next level.
Hello it seems to be a long time since I wrote anything at all about interiors. I have been ignoring this space more in favor of my green friends. Time to change that 🙂 While out shopping earlier today I stumbled across these really old vintage floral tile coasters. I loved them unfortunately I could not buy them as they were exorbitantly expensive but those lovely tiles got me thinking that floral tiles will look so stunning in a bathroom wall. Here are ten of my favorite bathrooms where floral tiles have been used.
Marble is one of those timeless materials which will always be in trend. It is stylish, available in a wide range of looks and design. White marble has been quite popular over the years and in recent times it has been widely used in the kitchen, but today let’s take a look at green marble. It is totally stunning and I have been obsessing about this lovely material for a while now. Given a chance I would totally go for a green marble back splash in my kitchen. Let’s take a look at ten really cool products/interior spaces where green marble is the real star.
Did you enjoy this post? It will really be great to hear from you guys. Would you use green marble in your kitchen, bathrooms?

Hello as 2017 is slowly drawing to a close, let us take a look at the 5 top interior design trends that more or less hogged the limelight this past year. Do let me know which your personal favorite is. And did you incorporate it in any way this past year in your homes.
Wallpapers with the watercolor effect was one of the most talked about interior trends of 2017. The cool mesmerizing effect of a water color painting was introduced as a headboard for a master bedroom or as a cool backdrop for a living room.
Some home accessories with a watercolor effect which was quite popular in 2017.
2. Tropical Prints
Tropical prints was one of the most talked about design trends of 2017.
3. Bright Green
Following closely is the bright green color. Pantone declared it the color of 2017. This year’s color represents refreshment, rejuvenation and rebirth according to Elle Decor. So we have seen this bright neutral color in the runways, home accessories, wallpaper and furniture. Did you go in for green too ? How did you use it in your home ? It will be great to see a few pictures from your end too.
4. Patterns and prints
2017 saw a resurgence in the use of artisan made prints and patterns in home decor and design. Brightly colored African inspired prints in cushions, rugs, wall hangings have been really popular. Upholstery fabrics in tribal prints and patterns has also been largely popular.
This earthy humble material which has been in existence for thousands of years was all popular this year. We saw tones of terracotta in flooring, ceramics, light fixtures and also in the growing popularity of exposed brick walls. What do you think? Did you embrace terracotta in any way? How did you use it. Do share your views.
So did you introduce any of these trends into your homes this year. Would you change your interior decor according to the trend which is popular at the time? Do share your views. I would love to hear from you.
I cannot believe that so much time has passed since my last blog post. How is everyone doing? It’s December already?? Wow…..almost time to say goodbye to 2017. Hope it’s been a rocking year for all of you. So today let’s talk about blue kitchens. Would you go for one? I picked the colour blue because it complements almost every style that you can possibly think about. Be it Shaker style cabinetry or cool modern or all the way to bright retro, blue is the ‘it’ colour. The kitchen is a good place to experiment with colour and especially if it is one that can hardly go wrong. Let’s look at 10 of my favorite blue kitchens. What do you think? Do you like any of them?
So looking at all the above stunning kitchens in blue, there are certain things which are like a common thread in all of them.
- White marble is a definite yes as a combination with blue kitchen woodwork.
- Open shelving, though a very debatable topic in interior circles works really. Marble or timber finish is a scene stealer.
- Patterned tiles on the floor is a winner.
- Accents in brass/copper sits very well with a blue kitchen.
Is there anything else you noticed? Do share your views on the above post. Thanks.
