Sun burst mirror

When I said that I wanted some gold in my room, I meant some vintage gold framed pieces in black and white. Or mirrors behind the lamps on both side tables framed in vintage gold frames. I wanted to do this in order to create some depth in the space and to enhance the light in the room. If you haven't noticed I am tlking in the past tense which means....

I found these!!! and I just cannot get over the fact that how amazing these would look above the headboard!!! I might have some size issues for these look biiiig over the headboard but I think the last image (the one with the bad pixels) will work the best! Don't you think!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Perfect headboard!

My In laws bougth this new home and I get to decorate my own room for that!! I am so excited about it. here are the few things I am looking for in my room.

A low heghted bed. Well not this low but about 16" off the floor with mattress.

A DIY tufted headboard in chocolate. Which would look something like this. I haven't decided upon the fabrics yet. So the color choice is bit timid. But what I am looking for is chocolate and gold.

I already have a no of samples for the headboard but i still need to decide for the wallpaper. What is the perfect wallpaper for a wall that holds a large chocolate headboard? Any ideas?

Thailand: Suan luam night market

On my recent trip to Thailand I realized its a paradise for bargain hunters and decorators!!! There is so much to shop!! and roam about! Everything there speaks culture and handicrafts! I had an absolutely amazing and crazy time running around with my daughter Inayah.

I especially loved the famous night markets famous in Thailand, They are AMAZING!! and real Fun. You can bargain upto 50 % !! or less if you are that good at it Here are few of my fabulous finds

I just could'nt resist these candles. Are'nt these just amazing! They can perk up any off white bathroom with chocolate accents! Well thats what I intend to do! The street markets of Bangkok were full of assortment of these candles in all shapes and sizes. And they just looked so amazing in each one of them.

An assortment of these lamps which looked equally beautiful and are perfect for a lovely night glow!

A pair of these wooden screens. The elephant was on everything imaginable: cushions, tablemats, tssuepaperoxes, screens, ... everything!! And it looked pretty on all of them.

 I wanted to use these screen to create a cabinet door for another chocolate accent in thge same off white bathroom but the sizes turned out to be bit smaller than intended! Lets see how this works out now.

I hope you enjoyed them. Still more to come in later posts!

Have a wonderful day ahead!!
