Well the year has started with a bang... with some stunning homes from around the world.. Today, we go to Alka's home in Bangalore... an absolutely stunning and shocking home... Shocking... coz I never imagined white could be so beautiful...
I am Alka Murdeshwar, a homemaker working voluntarily for an NGO based in Bangalore. We bought this apartment three years ago, and designing it was one of the most fulfilling tasks in my life. The décor was worked around the different artifacts we had picked up over the years during our travels in India and abroad, I deliberately chose white and dull yellows to give the expanse of space, and create an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
What you see here is the Cocktail cabinet and mirror picked up from Fabindia. At the far end left, the painting of the Afghan girl who went missing and was rescued after 17 years, is one painted by my niece.
The formal living room with artifacts from Kenya and Sri Lanka co-exist amicably with desi fabindia buys.
Finally of our breakfast counter, we got the kitchen wall knocked off to create this, and I love the open feel my kitchen has, I feel connected to the rest of the home while cooking!
Last, but not the least... the dining nook which is housed on the shorter side of the L shaped room.
Have you seen a home as gorgeous as this??
Well... if you've got a home to show me.. email me on email@example.com... Im waiting to see your home.. *smiles*
