More from Diwali around the house

Diwali enthusiasm is  running  riot around the household. 
This is among the very few occasions in the year I am focused completely on the house, spring cleaning, painting and changing things around.




Posting a few pictures of the little things  done so far this year.. The little notes on the images should tell all that needs telling..



I like to create contrasting pools of colours and textures around the house, achieved by mixing and matching different materials.


Wood, metals, silks, cottons, weaves, embroidery and clay-  used in varying proportions and combinations without any particular  method. Only I do tend to unify the overall look with one predominant element: for example colour.




In the meanwhile, painting of diyas, chowkis and old furniture is underway- Just because we are not painting walls, does not mean no painting this year! I have my kids to thank for active and enthusiastic participation in all  the painting and housekeeping,  there is no where on earth I can do this without their love and enthusiasm !



I have a few more things to share on the subject, but that comes later.. Until then, Happy decorating!!
