[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home




I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.  The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
 

Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!                                       

Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
 
 

Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?!  In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow through the household. I can’t help but quote Hans Christian Andersen here “Just living is not enough; one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower”

 


 
 
Airy – Imagine a room with no windows and doors. Think about a house with just a couple of small windows where you have kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms sweating moisture and odors. Having sufficient windows, exhaust units and interior and exterior vents will definitely make your home an eco-friendly one.
 
Furniture – Less is better. I hate those humungous sofas and heavy tea tables. Even cupboards should be smart and compact. I’d love to use the space below the staircase as a dining utility closet or my easy-access library for that matter J
 
                                          

Décor – I love color and vibrancy flowing through the walls. Subtle English colors would be my best choice so that the rooms don’t look gaudy.  I would love to go another step ahead and do themed rooms but on second thoughts, I’d keep them simple. Picture this - A beautiful bamboo swing in an almost empty study room by a fireplace. A pair of Bose speakers for some soul healing; that is all I need.
 
 

Warmth - The X-factor of a house is determined by its coziness according to me. Tiny fluffy pillows to grab in the sofa and anywhere else, I’d love it in my reading area too along with a book of course. Indoor plants and window sills are a great combination and it works for me!  

 
 


What is your idea of a perfect home? Do pitch in and share them, let us make every home a sweet home.

[Humor] - Shopping Mall crowd - Decoded

Staring shotguns - They are everywhere, one blaring stare, followed by next. Desperate uncles, jobless shoppers, housewives, nice-looking girls, security personnel, sweeping staff, staff from branded showrooms where even a housefly would hesitate to visit and not to forget the maniacs who peep into the toilets they can’t use. Did you know that the latest fad for a picnic spot for school kids is ‘visiting an overcrowded mall?






Clumsy kids - Kids running around with shopping trolleys in the madding crowd are a regular phenomenon in malls, especially when their moms are busy buying lipsticks and Kajals. Some kids do acrobatics by running in the opposite side of the travelators, which makes you want to hit the kids’ careless parents heads with a hard rock. Yes, one has to blame the grownups for such unbothered attitude. I feel bad for those parents who let go of their kids and later find them via announcements in bad English.

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.



Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…
