Hello From The Hills

Hello! I am enjoying my summer break in India and which is why my posts are so infrequent! What can I say, everyone deserves some family time and I am making the most of my break! 
While I miss blogging. I have been very active on Instagram and would love to see u all follow My Dream Canvas! I am constantly posting pictures of my India stay and my travels!

I am in Kasauli at the moment! A quaint hill town in the foothills of the Himalyas! I use to come here as a child! Today, I am thrilled to have my kids here with me!

We are staying in a lovely home! As I look around, all I can see are the clouds rolling in and pine trees all around! It's such a great feeling to be amidst nature! I am signing off now and shall see u back here in a few days!

Till then keep on smiling.......

A Summer Holiday

Hello there! I have been running around in circles the past few days! Its the end of the school year and my trip to India is just a few days away! I am shopping, cooking, cleaning, organizing and partying all at the same time :)

I will be missing for a few weeks but I shall resume blogging from MDC's new base in Delhi as soon as my jet lag is over! I want my kids to have an old fashioned summer break at my parents home!  Lazy days filled with fun, laughter and yes yummy food :) We have a family wedding to look forward to, a trip to the hills to escape the Delhi heat, a quick getaway lined up for me with my friends and last but not the least, sourcing and curating treasures for The Shop at My Dream Canvas. 

The Shop will be offline for a while I travel. However, there maybe a surprise in store, so do watch this space :)

Here's wishing you a wonderful week ahead! Keep on smiling.....

Suzani's At William Dalrymple's Delhi Farmhouse

Suzani's continue to rule the design world and I spotted it yet again :) I am sure most of you know of the writer and historian William Dalrymple! Through Architectural Digest we get a look into the Dalrymple's ’family farmhouse in Delhi. Color and warmth fill their beautiful home and my favorite textile features predominantly in the home :)
The house is filled with books, objets d’art, framed miniature paintings, and beautiful family photographs. The author's wife Olivia Fraser, herself is a talented watercolor artist with a keen sense for color and design. Here are a few pictures of their home that caught my eye....striking, don't you think?

My weekend was lovely. I go to meet a long time customer of my little boutique. She was visiting Seattle to meet her family from North Carolina. Luckily we met for a quick  chat and she even bought a few more things:) Its such a lovely feeling when my little finds at the Shop At MDC find appreciation and love :)

I am so grateful for each and every one of you who stop by My Dream Canvas!

Here's wishing you a great week ahead!!
