I can’t…

…think of an apt post title each time!
And this is one of those times :0
No reflection on the rooms that I have for you today
Though they did leave me a little speechless
Indian inspiration done right! From the kantha quilt to the faux camel bone side drawer to the roses to the pillow covers and the headboard…I wouldn’t change a thing in this room.   

 Remember my room pairs post? Well aren’t the above two rooms siblings? Love the scottish/madras checks
Another pair! And such gorgeous tiles and brass taps

Do you see what I see? Bandhani (Tie & Dye) pillows!

 Just when you ran out of ideas for innovative headboards – how cool is this one? For us folks in India, who can easily find jaali (lattice) work, we could try this with different stones…visualize a dholpur or jaisalmer stone jaali!

I like the play of different materials and textures (metal, ceramic, wood & the green of the cactus) against the mustard wall

 Suzani and colonial furniture – perfect combination
This room is overwhelming for me – too much happening visually. But love the independent pieces that have gone in – the tiles, the fabrics, the lamp, the side tables.. 

What bling!
Another case of sibling room love, you think?
I think it’s time I re-purposed some of my wardrobe 🙂
   Ah! The causal chic of those tiles..
 And the details that make all the difference. 
What title would you give this post?

    We're coming to India next winter, and I love this blog and your images–maybe over the coming months I can get my fill of Indian color and won't have to bring home six suitcases full of textiles–like I fear I shall want to do. I live in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon) and you can't imagine how wonderful it is to visually feast on all that color in the midst of a haze of gray.
    Thanks, Barbara
