Home ! Sweet Home !

“Man builds bricks to make a house
Members build love to make it a home”.

This is the lovely place in the world where I have wept, fought, smiled, giggled and shared happiness.
This place has seen me nurture, grow and rise.

I belong to a lower middle class family. My family has undergone turmoil, chaos, instability and happiness in due course of time. I witnessed up’s and downs in health, wealth and prosperity. However, havoc being on the higher side had an impact on us emotionally and financially.

We have been living in many houses since my childhood. In the last twenty one years we have lived in eight houses. Our memories rest in the every hook and nook of those homes. Nevertheless, we have never left them as houses; we have made them our homes.

“Time flies. After every dark, there is a shine”.

Finally, the day has come. My brother and I have grown to study in best colleges and are working for the reputed organizations. We have made our own house. Each brick called memory is cemented with a tar called love. It took us away three fourth of our salary, one fourth of our time but still we are happy and contented when glance at it. Ours dream has come true. This dream we have dreamt for years.

I being a lover of ethinic arts want to decorate and fill my home with a royal look. The one which makes us feel like being loved, welcomed and majestic. Knowing my artistic skills, the interior designing part has been put on my shoulders. I keenly observed variety range of wall frames, decorative items and antique pieces. I have finally freezed on few articles from

Lord Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles. As the god of beginnings, he is honoured at the start of rituals and ceremonies. I chose “Aapno Rajasthan Ganapati Kalash and Diya Wood and Clay Wall Decor”.

Vakra-Tunndda Maha-Kaaya Surya-Kotti Samaprabha

Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva Sarva-Kaaryessu Sarvadaa.

This wall piece is with kalash and diya representing the auspicious and fortune. This is exactly the one which I have been looking for. I am going to hang this on the wall right on the top of main door. This symbolizes that God Ganesha will bring prosperity to our home filtering the bad omens.

The next item which I have picked is “Aapno Rajasthan Miniature Floral Vases with Warli Paint in (Set of 3 )”.

Fresh flowers bring happiness and joy in our lives. The freshness in nature elevates hope, optimism and love. These beautiful handmade terracotta flower vase are eco friendly. The miniature warli painted flower vase represents our values, tradition and Indian pattern. I being a hard core admirer of art, simply loved the way the colours are used in this painting.

The larger vase of the set is going to be set in the corner of the hall on a glass corner table. This would be just beside the glass window. There is another reason for choosing this particular vase out of all the collection. The curtains which we have put on is of red and off-white colour . The flower vase and the curtain go hand in hand with the pista green wall. This is a perfect match to our hall. The beautiful flowers from my garden will add more vibrancy to the room.

I will place the middle sized vase in the living room just beside my book self. It adds royal look when I place on a wooden stand. This room is furnished with dark brown cup boards, book shelf and wooden table.

The smaller one will be placed on the self in between the crockery set. I just wish to leave this floral vase in between our exquisite collection of crockery as an antique piece. This entire wall is bright, shining and is as beautiful as an art exhibition.

Also, there is a deep sense of satisfaction in my heart picking this handmade terracotta floral vase. Am I not helping those set of great artists who are making their livelihood from these excellent works?

The last item which I chose is "Design O Vista Three Panel Painting Clock-86"

Often we see wall clocks hanging on the walls of the house undying for ages. Generations come and go, people change but clocks have their own space on the walls just like the sun in the sky. I have chosen this canvas painted three panel wall clock which gives contemporary and classy look. Fusion of ethnic and contemporary style symbolizes the modern approach to the ethnic lifestyle. This clock is going to capture those moments of happiness and gloom. This one will store the memories for a life time. Time flies and this clock remind everyone of the cyclical emotions in a man’s life. No emotion is constant. Everything has to be dynamic in this Universe. Sometimes laughter, sometimes angry, at times agony and amusement. This painting is bright with yellow tulips looking at the sky. Doesn’t these flowers influence us to rise at sunrise, aim high and spread happiness?.

My home is perfect example of “Orthodox approach to a modern living”. This is my beautiful home filled with true emotions. This home is yet to watch many celebrations. My wedding, my brother’s successful career, Papa retirement, fun filled moments, welcoming the new family members and many more in years to come. So, I chose the best to keep my home alive and awesome for a lifetime.
