That warm fuzzy feeling you get when you look at interiors and rooms that remind you of something from your childhood. The feeling of coziness, the feeling of simplicity, the desire to put your feet up and feel at home. Decor, that is casual, and not pretentious. Furniture that is well worn and not designer. Handpicked and handmade objects rather than objet d'art. Soft and familiar furnishings with your personal favorite cushions and favorite throws. Rooms that remind you of your grandparent's home and the summer holidays spent there. THAT warm fuzzy feeling, is what I have today, and these rooms made me nostalgic.
Oft read books with bunch of flowers picked from the garden
Ah! The 'diwan' (day bed)...must have in Indian homes.
Fresh bakes on the dining table
The various craft projects, that were proudly displayed by our grandparents :)
I love the simplicity of this dining table. And the gorgeous wood floor.
Perfect for lounging with a book and a jug of chilled lemonde
Nope, no coasters needed for this table. Perfect for a lazy evening with a bunch of friends
Sigh. The elegance of this simple bed frame.
Sunday mornings in unkempt bed are the best :). Oh, and read the DIY for this lamp shade here
Isn't that chair a flea market shopper's dream come true?
Crochet Wall hanging - so reminds me of the 70's and the 80's!
Love how the colors of the portrait and the blanket complement each other
Indoor plants...a must have from the time when I was growing up :)
I guess all this nostalgia is because May is right around the corner, and May used to mean summer holidays. Hot summer afternoons, spent inside cool home, reading books and poring over the odd interior design magazine. Good ol' days!
Oh, talking about interior design magazine, do hop over to Priya's curated magazine to read what I have to say about stuff like blogging and all. Such important things I say, really. And if you don't want to read that (how could you not want to, I don't understand), do take a look at the rest of the magazine. It's the perfect accompaniment to a tall glass of iced tea!
