A Home in Goa

Vacationing in India for a month was an adventure to say the least. We visited many family homes in different states with different cultures and the homes were all decorated with traditional Indian items like paintings and colorful fabrics.  This home is located in Goa, India and is available for rent. Casa Tota is a 150 year old Portuguese house, carefully and lovingly restored. I decided to share this home, because it has all the elements of homes I visited there.  The canopy beds are quite common and the urns for fresh flowers is just gorgeous!  Interiors in India is known for it’s rich use of color and beautiful wood carved furniture passed down from generations. I just love how they used old Bollywood movie posters as art – I couldn’t find it in India this time around, but I’m sure I can find similar posters on line. Have a great Holiday weekend- enjoy it with your loved ones. -ijin

I just found this 1 random ornament in our Christmas stuff! We don’t usually decorate with ornaments but I could’t resist this cute glittery snowman!

4 Pretty Things

Calais Chandelier – Aquamarine, ming boxes, GOLD, Upcycled Natural & Neon Baskets: Yellow, neon pink triangle pillow cover

I’m kind of obsessed with neon lately. I bought a LOT of neon paint (spray & acrylics)…so hoping to makeover a few of my own pieces in some fun neon colors! Here are just a few things that caught my eye this week. Pillow covers are such an easy way to add a splash of color. & you can always switch them out when your mood changes!

BTW, I plan to have a really colorful chandelier in my next home! maybe this one?
