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

Texas Home with a Pink Living Room

Last night while browsing pink rooms & louis chairs I came across this stunning Texas home. The pink chandelier and pink inside of the china cabinets are such fun ideas. Definitely pinterest-worthy! Another thing that stood out to me was the gun design on the louis chairs. It was a really charming/unexpected detail in an otherwise very feminine living room.

My absolute FAVORITE thing in this home is the wallpapered powder room. I am already working on my husband to copy that doggy wallpaper. How quirky!

Living Room Ideas

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Speaking of my living room…I want sooo many things. Where to start? What is your favorite piece in your living room? Did you purchase everything at once, or slowly accumulate pieces over time?

These are just a few things I’d love in my space. I should probably come up with a budget first!

P.S. #6 is actually the chair I’d love for the heads of my DINING ROOM

More Tufted Sofa Inspiration

More tufted sofa inspiration via pinterest. The thing I don’t like about pinterest is that it is often hard to track down the original source of the photo!

I think my favorite room is the 2nd to last one from Elle Decor. The room has lots of cool colors and patterns and seems like it would be child friendly (not show dirt!)
