Happy Birthday ATB!

It came and went and I can't believe that I did not post on the day......
Yes, All things beautiful... turned one this Saturday.

Happy Birthday Dear Blog!

I wish you and I have many more wonderful years together...:)

It's been an awesome journey all along. I started this blog almost on a whim....without much of a plan of what I wanted it to be. All I wanted was a space for me to bookmark my creative ramblings and all things beautiful to me.
Little did I know, that it would become such an important part of my life....a place that I always look forward to, a place that I always turn to when I have something nice to share, ....and more that anything else, a place that has given me many wonderful friends all over the world. 

I want to Thank all of you for being here and and making this blog so special for me. A virtual hug to each one of you:)

While I celebrate the birthday of my dear blog, join me in wishing a very happy birthday to one of my favorite blogs Purplehomes as it celebrates it 4th.

Fridays are fun

Happy Friday people!
 I'm excited....! I love the excitement of the weekend and for me the fun starts early Friday morning. The thought of not having to wake up by the sound of an alarm tomorrow (Saturday), of not cooking for the evening, of meeting up friends, of doing some aimless browsing and of indulging in some long awaited creative work....all these are more than enough to get me excited for the weekend.

Home tour: Richa's home in LA

Ever since I saw glimpses of Richa's home on my favorite blog An Indian summer, I knew I had to seek more. I reached out to Richa and asked her to share more corners of her home with me and the readers of my blog.....and she gladly agreed:)
Her home is one that I can truly imagine myself living in....warm and welcoming,  decorated with love..... and with things handmade and collected.
In Richa's own words......
"My home is a totally indulgent affair. Here, I indulge my love for all things handmade, vintage, repurposed, kitschy, fanciful or found.  I also like saturated hues, unusual juxtapositions, bright flourishes, big, bold statements and small details, whimsy, and a surprise element. And my aesthetic is strictly mix ‘n’ match (clearly, I don’t have the stamp of approval of enthusiasts of the 5-piece bedroom set ;-).  As a result of these (many) quirks, my home follows my very personal style instinct, rather than any rules or trends. Also, since I never stop trolling art fairs and flea markets, my home is fluid and evolving, which is how I prefer it anyway since ‘finished’ and ‘flawless’ are always boring to me."

Richa's passion for her home is all so evident in her words and then these pictures.... 

Do you see her bottle collection- So colourful and intriging!

Richa's mask collection.... "I have been collecting masks for very long now. Though now that I have these many, I add only when I am totally seduced by one!"

The golden pattern on the ceiling was there when Richa's family moved into their house and she left it there "because it went so well with the kitschy elements in that room."

Are you thinking what I wondered when I saw the above picture for the first time....? Are those bangles on the curtain rod? "Yup, I don't wear bangles but couldn't help buying them at Hanuman Mandir in Connaught Place one summer."
What an interesting idea, Richa!

I fell in love with all the beautiful fabrics across her home.....her gorgeous bedspread...

...the kantha table cloth....

....the bedding in her guest bedroom....isn't it all so pretty?
The prints on the wall are simple block prints which have been framed and put together as a series.

Beautiful fabrics neatly piled up on a stool....and then some books.

Hope you enjoyed glimpses of Richa's home as much as I did.

THANK YOU Richa, for sharing these with us!

PS: In addition to this amazing eye for design, Richa also has a penchant for cooking. Check out her food blog Eat Drink Man Woman

Sweet November

Well, well, are y'all? I finally got over my Diwali took a while for sure:)...but I'm here now.

After a long long time, the weekend felt like....well, a weekend. There wasn't much on the agenda, no long list of chores and plenty of time to not do anything.    
I got to relax and spend some time on Pinterest:).... one of my favorite pass times these days. My hands have been itching to do some artwork or a DIY project...and Pinterest is one place that provides inspiration galore. Maybe, I'll indulge in one soon.   

In other news, the weather has been beautiful these days.... bright, sunny and a little nip in the air....makes for a perfect day to be outdoors. It's such a nice time of the year too.....the countdown to the holidays has begun...there is festive spirit all around, .....and I'm loving all of it.

Enjoy the weather, stay warm and have a wonderful week!
PS: I have an amazing Home tour coming up stay tuned:)
