As for the interiors, she loves her sun room and kitchen for the handmade Spanish terracotta tiles. For the rooms, the paint colors were inspired by the spices, nuts & herbs unique to India. Turmeric yellow in the foyer, henna green in the guestroom, cashew cream in the sun room, saffron orange in the living room. Bursting with colors, she is happy that the interiors feel like one colorful spice box.
I could not agree more!!
Doesn't this feel like a vacation home with all this lovely scenery around ? I am so envious :-)
The porch is my favourite.... it has an old world charm thats so beautiful.
