When familiarity starts to breed monotony, it's time to move things around the house. Why you ask?? Just so that the eye is redirected and you have a new perspective on an otherwise old furniture or decor accessory that you own. It's important to bring about subtle changes and tweak the interiors to keep in-sync with our changing temperaments, maturing taste and of course the changing seasons.
From time to time, I give into the temptation to shop around my own home - redecorating at no cost (not surprised why my husband loves this concept:). Digging into my stash of accessories, I pull out pieces that I haven't seen in a while. Or if I have a particular color scheme in mind, I gather things from around the home that would complete the look that I intended to create. Today, I found my wooden Nandi calling out to me. Instantaneously, I knew I wanted to go in for the traditional combination of red and green. It has been my absolute favorite for as long as I can remember. Maybe it's because I associate it with one of the earliest images that I've swaddled away in my memory, of my mom looking stunning in a red and green Kanchi sari.
I brought out my red paisley cushion cover, a handwoven grass tray and an abstract painting that I created a while ago (random colors painted on a canvas and then pulled an old comb through it to create texture). The painting formed the perfect backdrop for the Nandi and all the colors were pulled together perfectly.
I was totally digging the way this Vignette turned out and the new dimension it added to my living room. In my rule book of decoration, my home is never considered definitively complete. I always see potential to make it work better. Cause once a place is considered downright complete, it kills the fervor of a decor enthusiast like me. What do you say ????
Have a fabulous day !!!
