This room was tucked away in my reference folder of pictures since I first saw it on House Beautiful . I often go back to it whenever I feel like looking at a room full of warmth, cosiness and simple elegance. Although this living room is in a house located in Los Angeles and I don't know its owner Roman Alonso personally but he & I both share a common passion and love for handmade and vintage home decor with universal appeal. And this room could very well be situated in one of those sprawling, pretty South Bombay apartments or anywhere in the world, for that matter. The brass lamps in the corner with its red linen shade, mattresses doubling as a sofa, the killim pillows on the colorful embroidered rug and the not to be missed jute window coverings, all these are things that we see in the Indian style of home decor as well. And propping up framed artworks and photographs on the floor, is something I like doing too!
