Flights of Fancy

"What's tickling your decor bone these days?"

You may ask me.

Even if you don't ask,

I have to tell you!

Here is what has caught my fancy these days...


Am on the look out for unusual headboards..

Distressed furniture...



Use of (empty) bird cages in decor...



And summery inspiration for outdoor living...


How about you? What are you fancying these days?

Jen @ GreetQ.com said...

Hmmm, I've been looking for a set of white bottles or vases in various sizes to make a nice, soft grouping behind an alarmingly orange sofa. Any ideas? :)

Fabulously french said...

Anything that is french is tickling my fancy, that said it was urns (vasques in french) last week and I am thinking that it could be old bird cages this week.

Hi Savitha! Thanks for dropping in :)

Very true, Julie!

Bhavna said...

Thanks Anusha! Isn't the turqoise cupbooard gorgeous!

How about starting to collect all sorts of bottles Jen? Some glass bottles are lovely once the labels are off! I remember seeing some regular mineral water bottles in glass in Germany - they were lovely!

I can so imagine it being you Yoli :)

Thanks Patricia! How have you been doing? :)

Everything on this blog, that's what!!!!

Sharon Colaco D'Souza said...

Lovely, lovely sources of inspiration, Bhavna and so good to have you posting again!

I was wondering if you made any headway on that block printed wall design you were eyeing. If so, let me know...I so want one, but I want it cheap! :)

Jess said...

Cryst (Previously known as Excellent Taste) said...

Love the topics once again...not sure about the old bird cages but LOVED the mirrors on the wall tho... I am so inspired by the designes that I have just ordered some cushion covers from india...ha ha

AnnaVallance said...

We have been without a headboard for a few months now so I was inspired by the photos you posted on your blog. The search continues. And I also love distressed furniture.

Anaka said...

The distrssed blue cabinet piece... love it! Where does one find furniture like that these days. A friend of mine once took old school furniture and re-painted it and used it for her apartment. It looked amazing.. and I guess back in the day school furniture was of pretty good quality.

WoW! I LOVE your blog! It was so great to see the little monks from Macleod Ganj. Namaste....I'll be checking back!

Bhavna said...

Oh, the blue cupboard is my dream Chandan :)...I HAVE to learn the art of distressing!

You are a sweetheart Gillian! :) How have you been doing?

Sharon, I have postponed the painting project for after the monsoon. Will definitely keep you posted with before after :)

Bhavna said...

Jess and ennui : Its great, isn't it!

Thanks Anreadu and A 'cheery' disposition! :)

Am I making you splurge, Cryst? :)

Bhavna said...

Anna, do let me know if you find the headboard! :)

School furniture! Wow, I remember the traumatized desks and chairs from school...Not a bad idea Anaka. We should hunt down schools which still use wooden furniture and not plastic :)

Thanks Sussi! Keep visiting

Bhavna said...

Thanks Carrie!

Robin, I am in love with all things iron these days :)

Yikes, this tag is soo due Rajee! Can I just say ' 10 things about me - go read on Rajee's blog'? ;-)
