Got a closet or chest of drawers fulll of this?
Some of us Indian gals often have a second closet space dedicated just for 'Indian clothes'. Saris or Punjabi salwaar Kameez made out of lucious silks, delicate embrodiary and fantastic beadwork in a rainbow of colours which makes it all too difficult to part with them. So the closets get fuller and drawers get really stuffed and we start looking for trunks to store the stuff. So what are some of our options to help get back valuable storage space? Well, you can always hand them over to mom or your siblings- the rotation system can work wonders. Or try some of these decorating options below. For those who don't have sari fabric lying around, don't despair, visit your local Little India sari shop and I'm almost positive that you'll find some goodies that will run your imagination wild.
1. The Obvious: Make cushions
It helps if you can sew, in my case, find someone who can. Moms, aunts and grandmas can help or the infamous 'suit lady' (aka a tailor). Image via here.
2. The Loads of Fabric Option: Make Some Bedding
It you want colour, patchwork sari bedding does the trick. Again do it yourself or enlist the army of folks mentioned above in Option 1. Image via Apartment Therapy.
3. Make a Statement with a Throw
Just fold and drape your fabric. Nice & easy. This turquoise silk brocade is stunning on this bed. Image via Stylecourt Blog
Pink sari bench anyone? Who says its limited to saris? Kimonos and Suzannis are all welcome. Image via Fresh Design blog.
