After spending a few uninspired days (which also resulted in no blogging), today I woke up with a desire to share a house tour with you. By now you must have figured that I am a big fan of pastel shades and minimalist decor style, so as usual I started with my morning ritual of surfing Scandinavian blogs but somehow the whites and greys and pastel shades just couldn't lift my spirits up. And I instinctively knew that I needed a dose of bright colors and funky decor ideas. I started my hunt and came across the works of freelance photographer and interior stylist Rikki Snyder which led me to the tour of this eclectic Massachusetts farm house of Kristin and Mark Nicholas. And there began my ah-ha's, ooh-hoo's and uffo's.
The colorful and patterned wallpaper is also hand-made. Yes, Kristin made it by cutting out pieces from Fedex boxes and coloring each shape in bright shades.
A cosy window seat created between two bookshelves. Embroidered bright cushions and the lamps have added so much character to this cosy reading nook.
The family room looks so inviting and comfortable. And the hand painted lamp shades add the ah-ha factor!
|This room and the overall decor of this house have a desi touch. Mirror work in the pillows, embroidered cushions and the bed spread can actually qualify as decor-desi style.|
