Lonny, Rue and Trad-home

My eyes have been completely glued to the Computer screen for the past ummm almost 12 hours.. I have been finding excuses to run back to the computer to read every word, picture, detail, link of lonny..

Harlequin Bath rugs

I am in love with these bathmats from Ballard Designs! And my personal preference will ofcourse be the black and white one.. Although my bathroom is all offwhite and peach!

Black and white bench!

Heeey everyone.. Here is the tufted black and white bench that I recieved.. hmmm needs sprucing up.. Don't you think!! I am going for an embroidered motif for the base.. Annd

I am fancying chrome legs! hmmm.. How would I go about that!! I don't know.. But I guess I will find a way!

Black and white and yellow bedroom: Progress

SO far the progress on the room is:

Given the white curtains with black borders..

THe headboard has gone for the upholstery and tufting..

The X bench inspired upholstery for the bench at the foot of the bed..

I have a few reservations about what the craftsmen got out of my draft.. I am pretty surethe curtains will come out without the bottom border and well lets see.. Fingers crossed.. I am expected to recieve the deliveries sometime soon today!

Have a Happy and a loaded of work day! :)

Lahore Fort

During my visit last week one of the marked feature of the Mughal Empires that we visited wasThe Lahore Fort. With its marvellous architecture and engineering techniques, it never cease to inspire and enthrall me.. The grandeur, the art genius, the luxurious lifestyle reflected through every stone and carving.. Everything just speaks for itself of the glorious times!

Front gate of Lahore Fort
The entire old city of Lahore boosts amazing cultural and antique shops, that are a treat for locals and vistors . Here are some of the fantastic inspirations I found in the shop! Believe  me there were tons! Everytime I visit this place I vow to do a place which showcases around the grandeur and the antiquity of the Mughal era! Wow that would be such a dream home! Imagine a bathroom inspired by Sheesh Mahal (Palace of mirrors) where one candles lights up the entire room!

I leave you with some great Monday morning inspiration!

Have a lovely morning!
