‘Home is where your story begins!’ And this is so true in my case. We may travel places but true happiness is finally in the countless, small moments we spend at home as a family.
The most ordinary and simple moments in our life is what gives us the utmost pleasure. Keeping this in mind, I try to embrace slow living.
As a family, we are fond of travelling and exploring places. Souvenirs especially handmade and handicrafts of a particular region often find a place in my décor.
My décor mantra is to avoid clutter, keep stuff organized and decorate with pieces that resonate with your own personality. Traditional styling combined with comfort is what works for us!
So today let me show you around our kids’ room. Decorating with naturals and all things traditional is a huge part of me.
Let me take you to my kids’ room. Orange and green are the main colour here, which are supposed to be energetic colours. The wardrobe has a nature inspired design on it.

We have tried to incorporate enough storage for books, clothes, games and other essentials, keeping in mind their growing years. Nothing goes to the trash in our place without giving a thought on recycling/ reusing. The yellow chair is one such, which is now used as a place for keeping away the book they read at night. Similar is the story of my son’s small, colourful toy truck that you see below the mirror. Sometimes it becomes a planter, at other times it holds other knick knacks from balls to bey blades to hair brushes etc.
All these pretty wooden ‘vahanas’ were once my son’s toys, now merrily adorning the bookshelves. They not only lend colour and interest to the shelves but also nostalgia!
This is study cum craft desk. It has a pin up board where in my daughter keeps adding all her work. It also has some sketches and a canvas gifted by her friends and cousin.

The other side of the bed…
The cross stitch bedspread is handmade by my mother and was a gift to my daughter on her birthday. Again, the fish shaped wooden pallankuzhi (traditional board game) is a customized one. I painted those fish motifs on it, inspired by our very own ‘Gond art’ from MadhyaPradesh.
So, that was it! I hope you liked what you saw.
