“Home is where the heart is.”
“Can home be a person and not a place?”
I have a beautiful collection of some of the best home quotes coz come to think of it, it is one place where I stay 24 x 7 and I don’t complain. I just love the feeling of being home and even the very thought of being away gives me the creeps. Yeah, am a big girl, independent and that, but talk of home… I feel three again.
Coming to the point, we all want to beautify our home. Don’t we? Imagine calling your friends for a pretty pink party (yep, we worship pink… it is THE GIRL SHADE after all) and when they compliment your beautiful home and the lovely decors, my height increases by a full four inches!! Lol definitely not literally or else I would be a ten feet giant by now because hey, I am not here to boast but my home is a little piece of wonder…!! ❤ ❤
Some pictures from my kingdom J
Okay, this isn’t really my home.. it is a”home model”.. clock-house as it is called.. gifted to my sister by her friends.. completely hand made.. but this is what the ideal home looks like in my opinion. Vibrant, full of colors and life!!
When I talk about my home, I just tend to go astray as I am thinking of all these wonderful feelings and the emotions are the cocoon that spread all over me. But, I am a determined man… Once again, not literally… just to clear the doubts, I am a 23 year old girl, but it was just falling with the flow and it is a “home oriented” topic. So I could pretend to be Bradley Cooper or any other handsome green eyed man I may never meet! (
Whispers. no cut that screams to herself, “could you for five holy minutes, stay on the topic.” Whispers back, “I can try but only if you could keep the conversation outside this blog… “ okay, I will scratch the whole thing and just get started REALLY)
So, talking of home ideas… I suck at drawing, I suck at painting. I cant draw a straight line with a scale. Yep, pats on the back… lordy lordy achievement, I personally believe I should have a seat reserved in the Guinness book of records just because I can’t draw a line with a ruler (okay, I admit defeat, this is not going to be a full “home décor” post.. my mind is off to a thousand different directions)
Despite my ridiculous and pathetically sorry state of affairs with drawings, I am remarkable at home decor. What is that saying, when you lose something, God compensates with something else? It looks like it was God’s way of saying, “Child, I’ve got a little gift for you… play with your home and you’re gonna rock it”. Being the good kid that I am (yes, 23 years old, but sooo what!! Is there an age for being a kid?), I took up the gift and I make sure to use it in the best way I possibly can.
Now that I have finally realized that my words are not going to be much of help today, I will thrust some pictures right away.
I love the color splash by Asian Paints.. They have such a complete finish.. My entire home is splashed in their eclectic shades. Okay. Boys, If you’re reading this, take a step back… like literally a step back from your computer coz I am going to drench it in pink…. Pink, red, yellow and orange- these are all THE shades. I just friiging love colors… It just makes me happy. When you’re feeling down and out, you should enter a yellow, orange or even a pink room. I feel like the light opens inside your heart and makes you glow.
Okay. Boys you are probably going to feel the same way about blue or if you are lucky to have a girl with you, you can feel the glow just seeing her glow. So, take back that step again and be happy with pink, red, and yellow and orange.
The common theme
We all love a theme, don’t we? It just makes us feel better about ourselves. It just feels good and I “pat myself on the back” as I have had numerous themes on my home and got accolades for all of it.
If you love “memories” you can put a stack of neatly arranged photo frames all across your home, in the rooms, on the stairs, in the hall, in your corridor and wherever it fits. You can so choose family theme and have those absolutely gorgeous trees painted everywhere that can once again have pictures in it. I love it and I am planning to do it at my home… I have 21 people living under one roof so I might just have a garden instead of a tree.
Pamper it with love
Nothing is complete without the touch of love. Is it? Hell no. whatever theme you choose, make sure to kiss it with the kiss of love. Okay, grammar Nazis… use of the same word in a single sentence looks a little off. But, it is love and I can say, “I am in love with how lovely love is” and I would still be right, so back off all you little Nazis watching me with steely eyes.
Nothing is better than cozy home that is filled with the aroma of love. You can use any of these tips and if you have something better, please do no forget to tell me here. I will use it at my home and may be I am going to love it equally. I am desperate for new ideas as you must have already understood that my mind is a sorry state of affairs… so, gimme ur ideas and I will love them… even if you are not looking to share some, you could tell me how awesome I am… okay even how pathetic I am,. If you feel so… sob sob L I am not really a cry baby, but ouch feelings… today, something is definitely wrong with me… while I plan a visit to the doc, you can feel free to decorate your home kingdom and share with me, how you felt J
Some pretty pictures coz I am just THAT generous 😀
Till I addict you with another round of silly madness.
Shade (I was given this name by a very dear friend and I love it so much that I want to change it to my real name. Today, I am drugged. No, I don’t do drugs, just that I can’t stop. Thank god, no one can see me blogging.. I think I am soo funny and I’m cracking up and I know you didn’t even move your jaw once, but hey, I bet your home looks good. Mine does. Okay, STOP.. not you, I was telling that to myself!)
