A Diwali to Remember-1






Diwali is a time of new beginnings, and for me, an excuse to change the colours in my house. So beyond the regular cleaning of desh ki maati, assorted cobwebs and changing some curtains, I indulged in a few decor changes. I actually washed and ironed the cream sofa covers with my own (aching) hands since I was too impatient to wait for the dhobi to do them. And a friend in Bangkok gave me beautiful cushion covers, with my favourite pachyderms on them, so once more we have elephants on my bed. The green rug that was last seen in our bedroom made it to the sitting room, a few accessories were bought, and voila, its a whole new room. (Or so I like to think).
The SRE comes home from work and appreciates the new look. It's a happy Diwali!

Awesome! I need to learn how to do this. You seem to have a natural eye for this. It's beautiful. I'm glad the 'elephants on the bed' look good!

@maggie: Thanks. I'm so glad you saw this almost as soon as I'd posted it! We were thinking of getting a new bedcover to do justice to the cushions, but this perfect one emerged!
