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!!
