My Home, My Magic – home tour Feb 10

Did you think the love vanished after Valentine’s day?? Continuing on the topic of love, here is a home where each corner is over flowing with love… This is the home of my blogger friend Meenakshi, who blogs at Niwas-where our heart resides!

This is what she has to say -

Niwas is a home of memories, moments, good times, laughter and prayers. I remember when we bought this house I was not sure what I would do as far as decor goes. Being a first time home buyer I had no experience but what I had was imagination and patience. We still have a long way to go but I am happy with the steps we have taken.. .. I love the touch of India as it reminds me of home and most of the stuff you see here are either gifts from family or garage sale :-) ....

I wont bore you anymore... by telling you what I love about your home... But dont forget, I'm waiting for your lovely comments... And will leave you to enjoy the corner of her home..

Also do check January’s home tour – of Ms. Ahalya

Don’t forget to comment… so I know what you are thinking!! If you’d like to see your home here, or would like to share a cozy corner of your home do email me on torresp27@hotmail.com … I’d love to hear from you!!

    @Rose - 5 star for your positive note. I never realised till you said it that I do have positive things around .. guess I was too busy decorating :)

    @Simran S. - I agree all we have in this house is L.O.V.E

  11. I love those cherubs adn the buddha... The first pic... very creative arrangement. All the corners talk of warmth and beauty.

  12. Lovely! Warm and beautiful!!

  13. Very nice and warm loving decor. I especially loved the idea of putting a table lamp and tea tray with a frame on the washing machine in the laundry room. The light not only adds a glow but also gives it so much of a positive energy while doing the laundry.

    Loved the quotes on the wall and the colors of the canvas/wood on which the quotes were written. Great caligraphy.
    In which country is this lovely home?

  14. loved the decor, the wall finish is what caught my attention.

  15. Love what I see so far. More photos please.

  16. @Iniyaal - I am glad you see the warmth in your house .. I cannot wait to decorate more after these awesome comments :)

    @Vinita- My laundry room was the first place I started to decorate. Its a very simple way of making sure it remains clean :) otherwise everything beings on top of the dryer ..We are in Florida USA but heart is still in India.

    @Rekha- wall caught my attention too when I first saw this

    @ Juli - I will ry to get some more pics soon .. by that time you can checkout my blog at http://niwas-whereourheartresides.blogspot.com/

  18. Lovely home! And what really grabbed my attention were Meenakshi's lovely & interesting frames!
