I moved to the US eleven years ago and to my current home in Seattle five years ago. It was a tough decision and I missed India terribly. Decorating my home was the first and biggest step in making my house in the US feel like “home.”

I brought with me childhood memories……art work from my mother’s home, family heirlooms that dated back nearly a hundred years, souvenirs from trips I had made in the past, even stuffed animals from my childhood, and dozens of photographs. Over time, I developed a passion for design, décor, and photography. This led to the birth of my lifestyle blog My Dream Canvas. I have to say that my home has no particular theme or style….. It’s an ever changing canvas and has grown and matured with me over the years. However, if I had to pick a style, it would be eclectic. I love clean lines, the less clutter the better ☺ I enjoy buying furniture and artifacts that are unconventional. I don’t necessarily buy expensive things, but things that catch my eye – It could be bought at a fancy store or a flea market.
My home today embodies my Indian roots as well as the experiences that I have gained from living in the US and travelling all over the world. A vintage map of India hangs beside a Parisian lamp, and next to it, lies my great grandfather’s silver candlesticks. My home is filled with history, a place where the old and new come together in a colorful mosaic. It’s a place that makes my family and I feel loved, happy, and safe!! I hope you will enjoy a peek into my home.
