Nepali Dhaka

Bringing some life to our hallway with Nepalese ‘dhaka’

In the hilly regions of Eastern Nepal, women weave this gorgeous fabric called “Dhaka”, using traditional handlooms. I love the fabric for its uniqueness and beautiful patterns. While this is mainly used for making traditional clothing in Nepal, I thought I would frame it up (it deserves to be framed) and bring some life & charm to our otherwise boring hallway ðŸ˜‰  I had this piece of fabric specially ordered from Nepal and have carefully framed it. I’m loving it so far. Can’t wait to hang it up. Advertisements

Digital Print Wall Art from Society6

Society6.com is now in my good books

I was a paintings person – as in, I used to prefer hand painted canvases over any other form of digital print. But with this move, since I have quite a number of walls to pretty up, the budget factor plays a big role… so out goes my preference. They are just too expensive. Anything that can give my bare walls some colour will do. Thank you very much. So I have been looking to buy some digital prints online instead. I recently ordered 2 digital prints from Society6 website. I really liked this online store for the variety of choices and the best thing of all it allowed you to sort the arts by colour theme. And the price was also much cheaper than some similar other websites like Temple & Webster (which I also like a lot, btw). And guess what, I even managed to scoop the free delivery option – free international delivery! I suspected the delivery to take a long time but I was pretty surprised to receive the order in less than 2 weeks. The only thing …

Living room wall in need of some inspiration

I am a decor dumbo. Its been 4 months since we moved and I have not been able to figure out a wall art for the living room. I could really use some help here with some ideas, blogs for inspiration, sites/shops where I could buy some (reasonably priced) art – digital print, canvas art, textile art, etc? Please do not tell me to DIY – I am not good at it. On a scale of 1 to 10, I am probably 3. So far I have been browsing/visiting these stores: http://www.westelm.com.au/ http://www.freedom.com.au/ http://www.templeandwebster.com.au/ http://society6.com/ Bought a couple of prints from this site but then realised its going to take 5 weeks to be delivered to Australia 😦 Help me people.

Amazing light fixtures by John Pomp

It’s amazing what you find, when you go about looking. I am now looking to replace the old lights in our home. So as usual, I began my internet treasure hunt. And I came upon some photos by some fab decorators that had these very simple glass pendant lights, with a weird (but very fitting) mix of being both a bit rustic and classy at the same time. I fell instantly in love with these light fixtures. These lights are by John Pomp.
