Diwali decor Inspirations.....


Those who are following on Facebook must have seen few of these decor glimpses when we celebrated the festival but here are all the moments together to cherish or pin away the inspiration for next year...

I have created a trio of floating candles in cylinder vase. added few marbles in the water for extra sparkle. out of these three only the tallest is vase- purchased from walmart for a dollar, small and medium are the glass we use for water and both are from dollar store.
  
Diwali candles

to create a interesting vignette, objects of varying heights are very important. I have grouped cylinder trio with small uruli filled with flowers and candles- which is actually a heirloom container/dubba, i have removed the lid. 

I have also added one more tea light on my DIY twig mirror. Mirror are great base for candles, it reflects the light beautifully. if you have big round mirror , you can put different color votive candle holders to create beautiful centerpiece.

Marigolds are must for Indian weddings, festivals and Puja...what say? I plant few pots of marigold every summer and they blooms till late fall so always comes in handy for my Diwali puja and decor.

Fall fall fall for master bedroom

When it comes to updating room for a season my basics do not change.

To bring the seasonal update in master bedroom I like to freshen it with beddiing, pillows, throw, accesories, flowers or foliage. Checkout seasonal updates for master bedroom in  Spring and Summer.

Orange is my favorite color and I love it more in the season of fall. This bedding I have used here is one of my favorite. I love the pop of orange between white and brown.

Flowers can freshen up any space. Usaully I have home grown flowers available for arrangement but if I do not have any then I use the indoor plant in my vignette. To bring in more fall I have filled lantern with artifical fall foliage.

Painted pinecones, vintage keys, fall potpourri and fall leaves


One fine summer morning my son and I were strolling through the street and pretending to find the treasures..then suddenly he saw the pinecones and said "i found my treasure". he picked up two pine cones and brought them home..as soon as we came inside impatient little person said that he wanted to paint them so i gave him some paint and brush.

This painted pinecones were sitting on the kitchen counter in a plate and we both were proud of his work. Painting the pinecone added curiosity in him to find treasure from the nature like acorns, sea shell even the dried fallen leaves in fall :)

As a proud mama i wanted to display them and incorporate it in my decor. even when i do not go overboard on seasonal decorating I like add a touch of it here and there so I decided to make a fall centerpiece and included painted pinecones.

Added vintage looking keys from pottery barn which I have used in vignette here. I have a plan to frame them but until that happens I am happily using it in to vignettes. I like the kind of rustic fall feelings it adds in to this arrangement.

I already had artificial fall leave from this fall vignette which I sprinkeld around in brass plate and it all came together. I love the gold color of the plate..perfect for fall.

Flower arrangement - Blue, White and Gold


My mother in law know that i have thing for old, vintage and brass items so this summer when she visited us, along came few of the family heirloom which i have talked about here. She also passed on to me one of her brass kettle which has been used so much to serve tea and is not in pristine condition but I love it.

and of course I had something else in mind then serving tea...

White daisies are from our tiny backyard...they only blooms in fall which is good as all summer flowers fade away this time. I have to keep fighting arguing with hubby every year to keep this plant alive as we dont have much space, this plant always comes in a way. Bring on the pruning time next year and I m ready to fight for it..because its worth it...ha..ha!!

I have a lot to share, you know. like I have a pictures clicked from months before but posting on a blog takes its time. many times I thought on just posting the pictures on the facebook page but I did not wanted to disappoint you my lovely readers so somehow I managed today to write a post :) before the summer is over. anyways it doesn't feel like much of summer this year with all this rain.

What summer is without Sea shell, right? Here is the pretty one used as planter for Air plant in the vignette on Bed side table.

At heart I love white sheets, the crisp clean look but we do not use heavy duvet in summer and lets say white sheet without the Duvet looks plain boring so I bought this cotton sheet in coral color from India and soft yellow shawl which I have used all my summers in India....so I am making it part of my summer here too :)
