HOME TOUR- Aradhana Anand's lovely home

 Today, Let me take all my readers inside Aradhana Anand's Delhi home. While this Good Homes Contest was on, Aradhana wrote to me wanting to participate in the contest. Alas! it was a wee bit too late.
Nevertheless, Beautiful homes deserve a separate post. Isn't it?

Aradhana has been a freight trader for over a decade now. she has travelled places and finally last year she moved back to Delhi. She is an avid reader / blogger / baker and practices yoga.
She blogs at

To be very frank  I am not too fond of dark walls. I have always believed that light coloured walls make the room look larger and therefore enhances the overall look of the place. Also it is easier working around the area with a neutral shade.

But Aradhana you succeeded in breaking my old school of thought. Her walls, as you can note is charcoal in colour. Inspite of that, the room is a riot of colours.

The numerous frames that adorn the wall, vase alongside Buddha, the couch & the way she has layered it with cushions, the chest of drawers, floor rugs all add character and drama to the room.
I simply loved her style of decor.

Now let us hear from the lady herself about her idea of a perfect home.

She says" A home should be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. The style has to be reflective of the people, occupying the space and not some third person's interpreted manifestation or store bought ideas."

She uses a lot of colour,experiments with genres, textures and periods.

Also, she has participated in a contest put up by APARTMENT THERAPY. To register your votes for Aradhana please click here.

Pottery town Bangalore

There is a small town called Potter's town near Bangalore East Railway station. Many years back the name suited the place, since all that people from that particular area did for their livelihood was making pottery.

I had heard a lot about this place since the time we moved to Bangalore.So one fine Sunday afternoon,  we just set out for this quaint little town. And no I was not disappointed, although there were only a few shops which engages in pottery now.

All the green thumb enthusiast will agree that pots and plants go together. So here you can find a collection of pots of various shapes and sizes.

Look at the images and you will be tempted to visit the place for once at least. Don't go there with too much of expectation, but I assure you, will find a decent collection.

Also, children are best left at home. Go there with a friend, chit- chatting. Spend some time there with the potters.They are also happy to show you their working skills on the potters wheel.

What do you feel? Worth a visit na... Spot the small uruli in the last pic, I bought three of them , solely with the purpose of keeping them in the bathrooms...water plants and  potpourri arrangement will add on to the charm of the small uruli shaped pot.

They have helped in adding some character to my balcony. You also need not plant in all the pots. Group them together and they act as decor enhancer.

Let me know your opinion after visiting!
