Cherishing memories with Photojaanic

Remember the time of camera rolls? Yes...once upon a time and then technological advancement happened! In this digital age all the pictures that we click (which is every now and then) gets stored in files and folders of our high end gadgets. But for people like me who are torn between the "Guzara hua zamana" and the "Need of the hour" crave for seeing their memories in print often. So, then what options do we have?
Welcome to the world of Photojaanic !

Photojaanic helps you do wonderful things with your photos in a jiffy! It offers a multitude of services like photo books, tabletop mount, magnets, wall photo frames, collage poster and canvas lite.

Very recently, we celebrated our 15th anniversary and I really wanted special moments of our life to be captured and displayed in our bedroom wall. For this  I chose Canvas Lite.

This is a beautiful way to get your photos on to a canvas and they have varying sizes too, to suit your needs!

From one of our many travels...Before going up on the wall

Going traditional to celebrate the Big Day!

Let me give you an idea of how it works. In a series of  5 simple steps you can have your memories  printed and cherished forever on the canvas !

To begin with...

1.You visit the Photojaanic website
2. Look for Wall Art in the header and you again have a range of options to choose from.I opted for  Canvas Lite. You can even choose the size that you would want. This should be done in accordance with the wall where you would be displaying your photo art.

 I chose the 12*18 portrait size as I felt that the photos I had selected would suit the size.

3. Keep the selected photos ready with you  on your device and just 'Get Started' ! Yes! that simple.

4.Again here, you have various themes to chose from.Keeping the photo that you want to display, choose the theme. They have baby themes, themes for the newly wed, joyous moments and I went in for the Full image. A style for every occasion!

5. Upload your photo, edit it, if need be, look at the preview on offer, finalize, make the payment using all regular payment methods and now just sit back and relax!!!

Your shipment would be on its way and delivered to you safe and sound within 4-5 days.
Some details worth mentioning are:

1.Durable canvas material with gloss finish to protect your images.

2.Images wrap fully around 0.5" thin sides.

 3.Wall mount hook attached at the back for easy display on walls

These photo prints are ready to be  put up on the wall as soon as they have been unwrapped from the packaging. Canvas lite prints don't require glass and are lightweight, so they're safe and convenient to use. Let your walls do the talking!

 Some points worth remembering while you choose the snap to be printed are:

 1. A high resolution image is always recommended, otherwise you may not get the desired results.

2. There should be a sense of balance between the subject and the background

 My treasured memories are up on the wall now and this is how it looks!

Ideal for the bedroom... What say?

A closer look...

And its not only photos, it can be pictures of your home or your child's art that you would want to put up as art on the walls of your home. There are many options, I tell you! Go and check them out. Come back to me and let me know how you like it. Signing off for now .See you real soon!

Travel inspired design and decor tales

 As you travel and explore a place you gain a different perspective. The experience that you acquire thru visiting a new land is like none other!

We traveled to Bhutan this summer and this post will cover the various design inspiration and styling tips I gathered  during the stay. As one who is interested in decor and art, I felt I was lucky to be here.

Bhutan has beautiful dzongs or forts and the architectural detailing on each of them is very much similar. In spite of that, each one was eye catchy and we looked forward to seeing more of them each day! Add to that, the traditional homes in Bhutan have a certain pattern and they are supposed to follow that even for the newer construction.This gives a uniformity in design. The windows are expected to be built with arches on them.The size of the windows may vary but the arches remain. Have a look at the following pics and it will all make sense...

The patterned arch that you see in this window design is very typical in Bhutanese architecture.

 The melange of colours and painted art on doors and windows mesmerizes you. some of the bigger motifs that you see on the bottom most part are the sacred symbols in their religion denoting peace and prosperity.
The arch is invariably present in each one !
This is within a dzong
These doors and windows use a wooden panel with intricate carving and detailed motifs painted onto them. The colours are generally rust,golden yellow,green and a royal shade of blue. On many of them an extra square block of wood with art work was attached and this lifted the design and styling a notch above the rest.


Notice the wooden block on the topmost part of the frame with a 'shankh' or conch painted on it. I felt these are such beautiful design inspirations to take away and can be experimented on our very own console tables and the like, lending a very rich and unique feel to the entire set-up!

A closer look at the neat and vibrant design

Let us take a look at some more of these...

This is a  wooden box with enchanting wood work on it, concealing wires and all the other hardware stuff inside the box!
DOORS... Literally welcoming!

 When there are no doors, you will find these pretty applique worked screens obstructing direct view.

A typical sit out...

Are you sold out on these cute storage cum coffee tables? I sure am! 

perking up a mundane space...

Let us peek more into their furniture range for some more design inspiration...

Dragon motifs on the sides of the settee...We can perhaps follow suit with some of our very traditional motifs or simply a floral pattern

These mandala designs are very popular in Bhutan
Such an elegant looking seater!

 What struck me here was the Bhutanese textile used for the cushions. We can again implement one in khunn or ikkat weave

Apart from these I shared pics of  some beautiful planters from this ' Land of Thunder Dragon' on Sajavat's Facebook and Instagram feeds. You can check them out regularly for more inspirations on design and decor.

Let me end the post with a Buddha figure beautifully positioned inside a stupa. I felt the same would look great as a jharokha on the walls emanating peace and calmness!

The above ideas were some of the decor inspiration that I got, while traveling to Bhutan. Hope it helps you in some way while decorating your space. Signing off for the time being.
Happy decorating!
