    New year should start with some new things, whether in life or in home. So my plan for my home is to replace my old Floor Rug with a new one,coz New Rug will brighten up my room and will give new warmth and comfort to my home, and highlight my sweet home.

  3. Hello Shilpa maam,
    firstly Waves of love and HUGE congratulations for completing 2 blogging years.Happy Anniversary,! Thank you for being such a wonderful blogger.(h) There is nothing more important than a good, safe, secure and beautiful dis New year I am thinking about to change my Spring mattress.and will purchase a bed runner too. The purpose of rugs is dual in nature: cover up unattractive or dirty flooring and add interest and pattern to our floor.So i Look for rugs to fill up the empty spaces in my home; these will make my house seem full of furniture even when it's a bit bare.In dis coming new year To make my house truly idiosyncratic and appealing, I will add framed photos of my favorite memories, trips, people, and locations too. :) :)

  4. Dear Shilpa,

    Many Many congratulations for the completion of two years successful journey. This question can give you a huge conversation on this because this a matter of chit chat among women.
    Well I have planned to have a beautiful and decent house decor so that whoever enters in my house can feel the peace and happiness, so that they can also feel the aura of HOME.
    These are the few things which I will try to chance with in my pocket budget.
    1: Bright light colour bedsheets.
    2: Use of soft rugs near bed.
    3: Use of wind chimes in my balcony.
    4: And will make a floral bay of real flowers in the balcony.
    5: A beautiful Ganesh emblem on my entrance, so that my house always get blessed by Ganesh ji.
    6: And recently I have learned some paper craft wall hangings, will make and use them.
    7: I have also learned making tissue paper flowers and will use them on my entrance by pasting them on sticks to give it a real look of flower pot.
    8. I will make middle size rug for my temple area with my retired dupattas.
    This is a small list which will make my home a SWEET HOME with lots of love for my home decors and my loved ones.

    Since I live in a nice joint family home, my plan to spruce up the house in the new year is to get a lot more personalization done…more family photos, together and individually. Make the house more bright using brighter colours and more pastel themes.

  6. New year is the best time of my life. With every new year, I like to replace all my old home decors with new ones. And this new year I have planned to substitute all the window curtains with some dazzling ones, add some vibrant coloured bed sheets as well as pillow covers, supersede the old clumsy rugs with new floral rugs and include some cozy cushions for my sofa.

  7. My living room is decorated in earthy tones mostly muted creams, maroons and browns.
    I've used a lot of terracota artifacts and brass lamps as I love Indian culture.
    I also have collected a lot many handicrafts from across India like a wall-hanging from Assam that has cute artistic animals.
    Also I have a wall- hanging from Gujrat in traditional Gujrati hani-work along with puppets from Rajasthan.
    I'm really proud of our Indian culture and tradition & Art .

    I would style my home with a wonderful brown Diwan Set from 'House This'

    As you can see it's brown in color and will go wonderfully with my decor. The prints are also Indian and I would love to make my guests feel welcome by seating them on this marvellous Diwan Set .

    My Nest is my Home

    ‘Home is where the heart is’. All our innermost feelings, affection and devotion are concentrated in that one little place in the world, the place where we have been brought up, that is, my Nest which is my Home.

    It is the place to which we keep returning to all the time; it is the place which we can never erase from our minds and brings me come back to over there at (Home) everyday.
