House in Lamu

It’s been a week and some days since I chatted with you. I have been flitting from one event to another; first Diwali, then a quick getaway to a lone fort with friends and then a wedding in the family. Today, after the longest time, I am at home, and couldn’t wait to get back to you! Coastal living has been on my mind for more reasons than one, and befittingly, I found this gem of a place [actually four houses] in Lamu. Shela House manages and runs four beautiful houses, available for vacation rental, in Lamu. I love how just using good ol’ solid furniture, textiles and local craft, the houses exude such a warm & comfortable yet a well designed vibe. Here are some of my favorite spaces from the four homes:
P.S: Thanks to everyone who participated in the fabulous giveaway sponsored by Craftisan for Diwali! The winner, announced on facebook, is Subhasree Banerjee. Congratulations Subhashree! Do write to Craftisan with your shipping address soon.
