COLOURS have always been a designer’s favourite. The vibrancy and the spark of colours always make me excited and so does this Indian festival. Though I never want any special reason to decorate my house with lovely colours, but holi is just a perfect occassion to give it a special attention. Whether its decorating interiors for Holi Milan when friends coming and having a cheerful time or its about preparing delicious mithai delicacies and cool thandai, everything in all gives me a spark … Ohh am sooo Happy!!
India is a country of diversities in its all best forms. And states like Rajasthan, Punjab, Bengal, Gujarat, Maharashtra, all just enhance these. After spending quite a certain time in Rajasthan, I always have a keen fondness towards colours and beauty in its every form. I always love to make it Royal and Grand. Rajasthan has contributed a lot for my intricate passion towards decoration and beauty in its royal and serene ways. Its a global state of handicrafts for every occasion and every day. Punjab, the state of yellow mustard and greenery. People there are always truly colourful, I cherish the sight of Amritsar. Bengal the state, always gives a unique attention to the combo of Red and White. Ohh, thats interesting, whether its a bengali married woman’s signature Sankha-Pola or a special Durga Puja attire of Red-White Garad saari. Karnataka famous for its silk, in all the most vibrant colours , and they definately look so elegant. Ans so does every place has its own form of presenting the beauty of colours. And Holi is just another way of celebrating our own life with this beauty.
On this Holi, i would love to see my home beautifully decorated with a mirror work and phulkari decor attires, colourful cotton block prints cushions here and there, with some lovely indoor and outdoor plants. All the delicacies like Thandai, gujiyaa, malpuye, boondi lke laddoo, mathri, …. Outdoors decorated with thalis of lovely vibrant colours of gulal and buckets of colour. Friends, I just love playing Holi. My friends are scattered throughout India and even few across the world, and I just wish if I could have seen everyone at my home for holi milan and would have done lots and lots of fun filled with cheer, colours, vibrancy. All my dear friends, do drop at my place or atleast do drop comments whatever you feel , anything globally. I love to hear from my friends.
And for my friends who love to decorate there house with lovely colours, want to give you a home tour of famous blogger and lovely designer, Sanghamitra Bhattacharjee’s Delhi home.
