Mom knows Best!Β 

Dry bamboo behind a potted plant. 

Who else but a mother can think of giving pride of place to anything drying or dying 😊.

My mom specialises in picking up seeds and leaves and placing them in the most artistic manner, for her own joy…Every time I visit her, there are new flowering plants in small bottles and jars. She makes a collection of them on an antiquated table that has seen better days… And makes it look fabulous. It seems like she discards nothing… Just puts it to different use. ☺️

There are frangipani flowers that fell out of a hairclip, adorning an evergreen plant in the living room. From a distance, it looks brilliant! Guests wonder if they can take a ‘cutting’ of this unusual plant… Much to moms delight.

In the night, when even owls might struggle to navigate their terrain, my mom trapezes over pipes and flower beds to make me smell the fragrance of her latest Blossoms! She knows each and every flower by heart… She inspires me by her enthusiasm for small joys.. Those are the big ones for her 😊

I love this about her!

This one’s for you Mom 😁!

Read.. Recycle.. Reuse..

Window decor in some shops is. not just about beauty, its meaningful and thought – provoking.. Like this one at The Wishing Chair, in Shahpurjat. It was to remind people of Earth Day and the value of being conscious of the waste that is generated in normal living and how to curtail it.

Checking out a new Hotel in New York

The Henry Norman Hotel is mint fresh, so fresh that in some parts even the paint hasn’t dried.Β  The place is sparkling with the gloss of bright colors and energetic artworks.

A lot has been done within a relatively small space,Β  but I have to say it has been done very elegantly and intelligently.

It’s exciting to see how people push the envelope and see space in a completely new way, using it optimally and functionally while keeping design aesthetics in mind πŸ™‚

Great job! Great stay!
