Wall art or wall stickers

For about a week now, Rose & I have been constantly discussing (rather debating) about painting the walls… or using wall paper or wall stickers. I’d like to share a few inspirations with you…
Which one do you like? Do you have a beautifully painted wall, or wall stickers that you’d like to share? (go on…. Inspire someone!!) Don’t forget to email it to me… at!!

Design your own screens

Have you ever seen anything like this?? Frou-Frou & Claude are luxury screen makers. The screens can can be used as room dividers, backdrops or simply screens. The best part is that you can design your own screen by choosing a design/ colour / pattern of your choice. I thought that was a great idea!

Jaipur Hotel

There are loads of beautiful hotels in Jaipur. I’ll do a post on a heritage hotel later… but first I want to show you the Holiday Inn Jaipur – not only because we stayed there… but for the following reasons -
The courtyard was beyond impressive!! I have a soft corner for courtyards and this totally took my heart away -
The view from the top -
This was always filled with flowers -
Another view of the courtyard …
There were flowers everywhere…
And paintings adorned very wall … of kings & queens …
This is the wall at the entrance of the hotel… I heart this wall… its beautiful…
A closer look… I’m going to do this (below) on a small wall in my home for sure.
If anyone of you has the guidelines on how to go about with this, what materials to use, etc, please email me on

Jaipur – a few memories

I’m still sorting & clearing my holiday pics. I found these of a little boutique store at the Amber fort.
The statue of the Ganeshji invited us to this store -
Here is the first glance ….
Then the prettier stuff -
the books
the standing lamps
the peacock wall lamps
the flowers
the candles…
the seating….

and finally the windows…. with arches & pretty lamps… *sigh*
6 I hope this has inspired you for now…. More posts to follow…

Buddha on the Wall
