My mama's house...

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Back to work today after taking a few days just hanging out with family. Totally did me good. I'm hoping I get my spunk back this week and start going through my mile long 'to do' list. I need the productivity fairy to pay a visit and help me along. You'll notice a few changes around here too...just some tweaks to make this blog space more fun for me (and you I hope!). In the mean time, because I'm missing my parents a little,  I thought a 'mama's house instagram' post was just what I needed today.
 My parents brought this pretty piece home all the way from India.
 This was my late grandmothers. My mother is going to kill me because I can't remember what she called it in Punjabi. Its a family heirloom that I love looking at.
 Surprisingly my parents were never afraid of bold patterns and colours (in rugs that is). These Persian beauties were bought over 15 years ago and I find them very current today.
 Another souvenir from a trip to India. I'm hedging my bets that most Indian parents have one of these trinkets around their homes somewhere.
 A little jewel box treat. Can you ever really have too many of these?
Oh, my mom never misses out decorating for the kids. She doesn't take it too seriously...an important lesson I think. Nothing like a dinasour in a house plant. Adds that special touch don't you think? All images via me.

Welcome back! I am sure it has been a tough few days but hopefully all of your family had some comfort in being together. What a lovely post-I think as I get older I start to appreciate and want more of the Eastern and Indian design elements in my home

My parents' house is a treasure trove just like your parents' appears to be. Gorgeous pieces including the rug. It is great when one takes a closer look at each piece and appreciates the craftsmanship, color, and so on.
