R redecorates ROOMS

I love doing up the house. In fact, nothing makes me happier than a fresh coat of paint and new home accessories. It is almost a Christmas tradition that I have initiated. So, come November and I have a harem of men in my home. From plumbers to electricians, painters to carpenters, they all become a part of my extended family. So much so, that as Christmas day nears, I have to make extra efforts to get them to leave. This year, we did not indulge in my favorite activity. The husband was very happy. Actually, it just got postponed to Easter. And then, I was very happy.

I firmly believe, change helps clear the aura around the home. Probably, that is why I have an annual winter-cleaning session. And I love bright colours. They lift the mood like nothing else. My home is my territory. It is the place where I spend the better part of my life. Hence, it comes with my personal stamp on it. It is the essence of the family that resides there. I do hire professional services but the design and its elements are all taken care of by moi. Being house proud is a feather in my cap that I love to flaunt. 

Gonna leave you with a few 'before and after' pics. Hope you like them. So, do you have a fetish for a sparkling new home too? How do you go about it? Do leave me a link to visit. 


The Living Room last year, with a self designed bird lamp. 
 
The Living Room this year, fresh and green.
This POP tree has been made by me as well. It has drawn quite a few eyeballs and undergone many makeovers. The Flowers from Brands for Less and Tea Lites from IKEA
The Tree of Life, now in natural wood colour.

Awww ...how do you make the tree so beautiful every year ? You are one creative woman Blogwati G ...loved all the before and after ones too :)

Aarti's mom said...

I tell ya...this is something you had written, residing in my head. I change colors/ decor so many times, that my friends stopped acknowledging the newness.I have a spring cleaning session (in progress right now, like your winter one) Did I tell you, I am huge on DIY - Next time I am in Mumbai, or you are in CA, I hope to meet you!
Please do share more info on the tree...It is out of the world!:)
Hugs
Soul sister from CA :)

Aarti's mom said...

Ok - I am still lurking here - are those candle sconces on the branches of the tree?
Digging the pics big time! :)

Sakshi said...

I love both the old and new lamps in the living room. I remember loving that bird cage lamp in Wake Up Sid and hoping one day I can make something like that in our home....then I went ahead and got twins....sigh!

Your home looks so cozy and lovely.

nd60 said...

I loved the new look... looks very pleasing to the idea... gives me an idea of how to fit the green colour into a room :D I will use that idea sometime next year when we sit down to paint again ! :D

That tree you made ! OMG ! You are way too talented and resourceful than I thought... ! :D

Normally talkers are not doer's and you beat that norm ! :D

Blogwati Gee said...

Blogwati Gee said...

Thanks Sri. *Blush*

Blogwati Gee said...

Anytime. Thinking of doing a dedicated post on it someday if I can only find the old pics I have.

Blogwati Gee said...

They are tea lites from Ikea :D and the reason why the tree happened in the first place.

Blogwati Gee said...

Sakshi, thoda co-ordination ka problem hai.....lol, else you are bang on creativity :P

Blogwati Gee said...

Thank you. *Basking in the glory* :D

mynascence said...

Not fair.Blogwati Gee- First you put us to shame with your fabulous writing skills , wit and humour..and now your wonderful sense of design. why God why wasnt I blessed with all your skills..Theatrical despair..Love your blog and your home. The POP tree , what a brilliant idea.

A thousand apologies. I did not mean to venture in that direction *Dramatic Tearfall* But thank you for the generous compliment. :)

The Wicked Writer said...

P.S. I've recommended you for a Liebster Award, you don't have to accept it, it's given by bloggers to bloggers.

Blogwati Gee said...

Thanks so much, for both, the compliment and the award. I have already received it and done a post before. But thanks for the honor :)
