Festive Vignettes From Bangalore

With the festive season at our doorstop, I love sharing vignettes from homes gearing up for the festivities. Here is one such home all dressed up for the season. This is truly a beautiful home! Anupama who happens to be a doctor and lives in Bangalore has a passion for traditional decor. I really admire how  elegant her home is.

I asked her to describe her style in her own words so here goes...

" Doctor by profession decorista by passion!
My decor drama started by scrolling through Pinterest and then I had a spark of imagination seeing others. I got inspired and starting decorating my home.
 I brought along my family's brass collection which was left untouched and started arranging them in my house. That is  where my love for decor began. Then my second tool was Instagram as I saw many beautiful vignettes and began posting mine! And here I am today."

Thank you Anupama for sharing your home with the readers of My Dream Canvas. Do follow this talented lady on Instagram where she shares lovely corners of her home.












I do hope you are enjoying these home tours as there are more coming your way do stay tuned!!

An Enchanting Home in Coimbatore Part 2


Hello There! I gave you a sneak peek into the home of Sigappi Annamalai in  Coimbatore in my previous post and today is Part 2 :) Exquisitely styled with traditional elements that exudes warmth, this a certainly a gorgeous home!

Her design style is both unique and authentic . Her eye for texture, art and other details are exquisite. There is no doubt about how gifted and skilled she is the area of Design and Decor. With an eye for picking 
up interesting pieces, she weaves them seamlessly into her interior style. By defying design rules and stereotypes, the end result feels airy  and fresh.
 Sigappi Annamalai  stays true to her instincts. Her Chettinad background is clearly evident in her home. Traditional brass pieces and artwork combined with unique, fun and artistic finds from her travels come together to showcase a talent which is truly one of a kind.

I do hope you have enjoyed this virtual tour of a beautiful home! What are some of your favorite elements?

 Its time to kick of the Festive season here at My Dream Canvas. I have a series of posts lined up and hopefully you will love them as much as I do :) Today, we are heading to Coimbatore to visit the home of the mom of one of my flickr buddies :)  Meena Sriram's artistic photographs have been featured on MDC before! Meena sent me a few images of her mom's lovely home in Coimbatore a few days ago. I was blown away by the sheer beauty and simplicity of this home.

Goodbye Summer Hello Autumn

This year is passing by at an alarming rate..... don't you think? I had a busy summer and we ended it with a lovely vacation. We travelled to Croatia via Paris and spent a very interesting day in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We flew back via Brussels and spent a day eating waffles and macaroons :) I have a series of posts lined up about my travels. There is  a hint of Fall in the air......the light seems to have changed. Although, I will miss the carefree days of summer, I am looking forward to all the prettiness Autumn brings with it!

For the pillow obsessed person I am, this delightful way of storing pillows in a wicker basket seems absolutely perfect!!

How have you been doing? I have missed you all.....
