The Friday Mix ~ The Design Enthusiast

Its blog swap Friday again?? wow!! Today.. I'm blog swapping with Sudha from The Design Enthusiast... I've known Sudha for a long time now.. and always admire how she makes her cozy home gorgeous.... Hop on to see for yourself!! And if you'd like to blog swap with me... email me on
Hello everyone, I am Sudha and blog over The Design Enthusiast. Let me start by thanking Patty for the invitation to be a part of Colours Dekor and its wonderful family. And now a little about me :-)....I am more into design than into decor :-). I started The Design Enthusiast to document my research on how, why and when of design- be it furniture, architecture or say a simple home utility item. I believe in green living and do my best to put serious thought into all the choices I make.
I love to grow vegetables and herbs in my tiny balcony garden (I was not lucky summer '10 though!)
Having moved four times in the last seven years, I could never buy furniture and literally lived out of a suitcase :). It is after landing in the current city we live in, that I could invest some time and money into buying basic furniture. I shop for pre-loved furniture from thrift stores and Craigslist. Working with budget, space and layout and style constraints, furnishing is always an interesting challenge. Having said that, I have bought and sold/given away furniture and that is an on going process for us :-). This was our living room in 2009
and this in 2010
I have a few DIYs to my credit, here is one of them - A terracota bird bath and feeder. (all made from pre-used items)
Between hunting for a job and cooking, I blog @
as well :-). I hope to see you all stopping by my blog(s). Thanks to Patty for letting me share space on her beautiful blog. Live well and live green.
--- take care an luv sudha
