Re-arranging accessories to create new looks...

As a designer I feel that, one has keep re-inventing different things to give a new feel to their home. Ofcourse, If you have to buy a new furniture or a deco article.....then it would turn out expensive. But why not try with the same stuff arranged in a different manner....While I was pondering on this, I decided to simply re-arrange a few of my corners. The same accessories with a different combination. Amazingly, it definitely gives a different feel to the whole setting. I suggest that all of us should try this. Are you getting bored sitting on the same couch facing the same direction..........then simply re-arrange your furniture alongwith your accessories....believe me....the feel is totally different....
Terracotta.......is always and will always be in trend. One can use this to instantly add colour and texture to a neutral setting. On the other hand.... one can use this to subtle the effect in a bold colour scheme.
The same terracotta pot in a different setting......


I simply love these traditional diyas which I light daily..... what I have attempted to show here is that these can be used for a traditional setting with some idols or can be combined with terracotta for a casual setting. The traditional diyas represent Jaya and Vijaya who are the gatekeepers or the dwarapalakas of Vishnu..... To know more about this, please follow this link.......http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaya-Vijaya


On a festive day, I would love to use the new chair (please see post title... A makeover....) to set up one corner and display the idols.


A simple corner makeover in a complementary colour scheme. Instead of keeping the same things on a wooden or a glass table, add colour to it using some fabric/leather of your choice. Try to colour co-ordinate it using analogous colours or if you are feeling vibrant then try a complementary colour scheme like here....red and green......

This is a new baby krishna idol that was gifted to me. Brass or golden figures look best on black velvet background....This is a beautiful wooden box made with glass painting of RadhaKrishna. I use this in the pooja area to store all the necessities.

The same can be used as a center table deco article. Serves as a paper weight.......or to store some milk coupons.....

Colour...........Colour...............and more Colour..........
Silver idols look good with a dashing pink or a parrot green background......
