Textile Artwork

Now that my living room is starting to take shape (check out my latest DIY here) I’m starting to source items to fill in the blanks – the blank walls that is. As much as I love my roomy living room, it leaves a lot of wall space to cover, which isn’t always easy when … Continue reading

Living Room Updates: Custom Desk Reveal

Ladies and gents, remember how I moved into a new apartment a couple months ago? Well since then, I’ve kept a couple (DIY) tricks up my sleeve. After all, I can’t think of a better way to spend a 110 degree day than in front of an air conditioner with a paintbrush (yeah, yeah, I … Continue reading

The bad news is that I … Continue reading

Thinking about Rugs…

People have all sorts of approaches to adding rugs to their rooms. Some plan a whole room around the statement piece and others think of it as the cherry on top and it’s the last thing to enter a room.

When I was younger, my grandparents came to visit from India and stayed with us for a summer.
