My Home, My Haven - Durga - Part 2

Still touring Durgas home today and focussing on corners of her home!! 


Here is a little monk. Durga thought that the bamboo umbrella will be appropriate next to him.


This is a Pallankuzhi,a game played with seeds or shells.This is from Durgas maternal ancestral home.


Little knick knacks.. 


This Ganesha is a cut-out from a wedding invite and Durga says she is lucky to have an excellent photo frame shop nearby.The background is raw silk.




The last pic is paddy that is traditionally hung in Srilankan homes as an auspicious symbol.


I love so many little corners of this home.. What do you love??

My Home, My Haven - Durga - Part 1

Welcome to Durga's home!! Sit back with your cup of chai, coz I'm sure you will enjoy being here..


I am a doctor by profession residing in Colombo.I do not own this apartment but I own the space.I think it is even more of a challenge then.

Srilanka is famous for its woven mats which I have used this in the balcony. This was the pic used in the Weekly Story on Monday.

I have a collection of Ganeshas and as you can see I have not grouped them,instead I have used it around the house so that they blend in.

The corridor features an original painting by a street artist and an ikebana arrangement with handmade bird mobiles.



I try to incorporate rustic decor with colour so that it is not too extreme.

My centre table has a Buddha, small artefacts from Turkey and a painted glass candle holder from Vienna.








Do you like what you see?? Leave some comments for Durga... And if your home is as beautiful as this.. email me on coloursdekor@gmail.com
