My Home, My Haven - Arti 2

Part 2 of Arti's home showcases her puja room & dining area...

I love the vibrant colours ..

Interesting how this Ganesha painting can give you a different feeling. It divides the dining are and the open space towards the kitchen. 

If you look at it like this... 

Some of Arti's collections displayed here.. 

Do you have a collection as beautiful as Artis?? Email me on

The Weekly Story - wk3

We celebrated my little niece's birthday over the weekend... She turned two!! 

So the family got together and had a kiddie party...

All of us coloured, these papers, wrote a little message for Leah. These will now be laminated and given to her to use as placemats.. Isn't that a good idea.

Since it was Barney themed, these were the give aways.. 

Home made pizza, using mini kubus as the base... 

The food was colour co-ordinated to be purple, green & yellow.. Not sure it really worked.. 

Sorry, I lost light.. and hence the pictures are a bit.. blah.. 

Apple, cut into no. 2, blueberries and kiwis to make these skewers. 

Blueberry jam sandwiches with a little star cut out in the middle... 

Green & Purple grape skewers..  


These little jars, are actually sold with yogurt in them... So Harshi & Ramie, collected a few to make blueberry smoothies in.. 

We then behaved like little kids, and played passing the parcel and musical chairs. Oh what fun we had!!

My Home, My Haven - Arti 1

The first home tour of the year... !! Yay!!

Here is a small, cute, yet elegant and lovely home.... a home that is lived in and feels loved... Tell me what you think?

Today Arti shares photos of her 12th floor 2 bedroom apartment in Hyderabad. She is a working mom of 2 beautiful kids and is a software engineer by profession, but a designer by heart. She loves decorating her home and collecting items, sometimes small - inexpensive items. And truly displays them with all her hear...

This is my favourite nook... 

The next series of her home will include her pooja room and dining room... If you've got a home to talk about email me on
