Lakshmi’s Stylish Home in Delhi

Stylish Home Contest: Do vote for Lakshmi’s lovely home by leaving a comment below the post

Horticulturist by profession, photographer and blogger by passion.

I live in a simple duplex rented apartment in the South Delhi region,Alaknanda.Our simply styled house,.All walls are painted in a very muted yellow and it does not have any extraordinary wall arts nor does it have some larger than life size paintings. Home in Delhi


We recently handpainted one wall ,just to hide the scribblings of my daughter,but we will have to repaint it soon.There is nothing extraordinary,but it does tell you some story ?It surely has the warmth in winters and the brightness when the sunshines through the windows …A love for the tradition runs in the family. Indian Décor is a manifestation of the traditional values of the region. All little experiences spring up in my mind now a days, when I am living in this city of Delhi far away from the verdant Kerala. Nuggets of memory make my home vibrant.My interest in Interiors date back to my childhood days, when we, as kids, were encouraged to look at arts and culture. This avid interest was fuelled by the lovely interiors of our ancestral homes.Raindrops splashing on the mangalore tiled roofs, the wedge of light streaming in through the courtyard,the vibrant kathakali performances that my granddad used to take us to,all make up my home..

  61. Sasi Menon says:

    A shaft of light filters in,
    Through the soft cotton of the drape,
    Bringing with it the love,
    Of a home away from home.
    A tired day ends,
    In the comfort of belonging,
    Amongst the smell of the familiar,
    As slumber gives room for dreams.

  62. rama ananth says:
