A vignette of a reading nook that breathes in fresh air and bathes in morning sun!
I love this corner of my home, where I get bright sun with fresh air coming in through the windows... it's just perfect for a reading nook. I can catch a glimpse of my balcony garden outside this window when i take my eyes away from the book.
A reading nook is where you will find yourself sitting comfy with a book and a coffee cup or having a chit chat with your dear one.. Such a cozy spot in your home doesn't need much to make it feel so lively and bright. You just need a few essentials to make one such intimate space in your living room.. Here are my pics for creating a cozy, comfy, bright
and lively reading nook: • Light - Ideal space for reading is where you get lots of light, preferably a window side.
• Side shelf or back seat shelf - That can hold a couple of books and your coffee mug
• Pillow or Cushion - It makes your space more comfy and cozy
• Plants - Big, small, potted.. whatever you have got. It make the space refreshing with good air.
• Personal Touches- Knick-knacks, bit and baubles and any art pieces of your own, that reflect your style.
These minimal things can just make your spot perfect for a laid back morning read..

I found these century old teak wood drawers in the loft and decided to use them as wall decor. Except for a dash of metallic colour, I haven't painted the drawers. The little things placed in it are just random stuff that I thought gave it a rustic charm. The two pot shaped objects on the bottom right are actually from the legs of a wooden stool. I got that chopped off in the process of modifying an old furniture and these looked too cute to get rid of. I wanted to paint them in vibrant colours at first, but on second thoughts just let them be. Don't miss the little wooden man fishing for some metal fish. On the top left I have a handmade wooden piece of craft. That's thread wound around little nails to form a tree and a bird. This is a space in my house that I love because it's so old world.
Tagging my artsy friends.

Nailing down your style. It's tricky, right? Y'all I get it!
When Michael and I first got married, I was all chippy paint and shiplap and . . . well, just swipe left, you'll see!
And now? I love clean lines and high contrast and sleek chic.
People always ask me if it's OK to change styles. My answer? 1000% YES! Our clothes, our hair, our cars. . . they all change and so can our home. Absolutely OK.

Happy Tuesday! I got my lazy self out of bed this morning and decided that today was the day I would go back to the gym👊 I didn't die, and I had a good workout👌All good things! Now to create a habit of going daily🤨 .
This cozy little corner in my livingroom looks so pretty and cohesive but if it were not for paint I would have the following: A red clock, pink chair, and a orangey wood side table. I am thankful for paint😊
What is the piece of furniture or decor that you transformed with paint that took you out of your comfort zone big time?? For myself, it was this chair, but it turned out so pretty that I would do it a million times over!
It’s been an extra long weekend that was extra special 💚
I am lucky enough to work for a school system that acknowledges US holidays! Extra days off at home with Oliver are THE best!
Today was a BONUS! Our school had a cold day, so I was able to extend my weekend by another day 🙌🏼 although today Oliver is at daycare, I am 100% enjoying the extra time at home 🏡 #gratefulmindset
Opt for light colors that won’t fade, if your room gets a lot of sun. Cotton, Linen, and silk blends are among some of the most recommended lightweight fabrics as window dressings to make them look elegant. #HomeDecorTips
Hey guys... so today I wanted to show you all how to create a simple and elegant piece for either your console table or a coffee table. I created this one for the tv table in my parent’s house. So let’s go step wise:
1. Get a good looking tray. You can literally use any tray. I used a blue pottery serving dish here.
2. For me plants are essential in such decor pieces. I used a snake plant in a simple gold pot. You can use any plant that you feel comfortable with.
3. Next, go for a piece which kind of balances the height of the whole setting. I used a beautiful wooden piece with calligraphy. You can use any decor item that adds dimension and beauty to the whole set up.
3. Again, another thing that I feel is essential for such settings is a candle. It adds a beautiful soothing feel and of-course comes in handy as well.
4. You can customise the whole setting according to what suits you, e.g, coasters can be added if it is for a coffee table. If the tray is large, you can add a few books to add height. You can add fresh flowers instead of a plant. A nice sculptural case would do the trick as well.. just go for a trail and error method and see what looks best ☺️

Working with acrylic paint is a great way to start experimenting with art styles and colour mixing.
You only need to visit any art supplies store to find relatively inexpensive acrylic paint tubes that you can mess around with and experiment with different techniques to find a style you like.
This is one of my earliest colour experiments where I was having a great old time with the cheap paint!
