The rest of the house....contd.

Sorry folks to break up one post on the house into so many small ones....but had to wait for a sunny day to get some good shots. The weather guys were all off....!

Anyway, be prepared for an orange onslaught when you see my bedroom pics. Don't know what it is about orange that appeals to me, but...well.....almost everything in my bedroom is orange and varying shades of orange. No one is complaining yet.......

The pics are pretty self explanatory. Its a large room with 4 large windows so lots of light floods in (on those rare sunny Seattle days).

So this is just as you enter the bedroom.....the door on the left leads to the bath, the one on the right to a walk-in closet.


Do you see my dog Lucy sleeping on the chair? Where I go, Lucy goes.......she never leaves me alone.
Lots of familiar stuff which came from Hyderabad.....
Thats a picture of my mother-in-law when she was vey young....teen years I think.
 More photographs....
 My bangle stand/wall art......
This is the hallway as you come out of the bedroom, The first door to the right leads to a guest bedroom, I have posted 2 pics below. The door farther down leads to another bedroom, which is still as they say "Under Construction". The door straight ahead is the guest bath! 



I'm still working on the third bedroom. Need to add a desk or something there.

Did you all notice that rug in my bedroom, the small orange and white one in front of the bed? Stay tuned for a story on that.......

Looks lovely Kamini. I think the orange touches add some warmth for those dreary weather days.

Lovely Kamini!!! and very you. The bricks and the whites did the magic again. So lovely to see all your paintings in the new setting and how lucky for the guests they got the Jamini Roy :-).

Hi Kamini,
It feels so good to see your posts and pictures that you take along with it. we did miss your posts on the travel blog as well as here, but since we know how you like to keep busy all the time, may be you went back to work where you were working before or opened your own firm on interior dessigning... the thoughts were endless.

Right now I have so much time on my hands and I have to keep myself inspired to be occupied or busy. And I would come on your blog regularly to get inspired thinking if I can find something which will fill my time.

I love seattle as I love the rainy weather but have not visited it. I am sure its as pretty as we have in the pictures.

Your posts and the pictures are always so inspiring as everything that you do you put a lot of thought and love in it and it reflects and reaches us.

Thats a lovely home!And yes, looking forward to the post on the rug..B/w, where do you get good rugs here in the US?

Shweta Sharma said...

Very Nice set up kamini. I love that you have brought India with you. Your space is very inspiring.

Roshni AaMom said...

I love your lamps and side tables; I love the chair in the corner...what a pretty upholstery! Your MIL was so pretty!! And, lastly, glad that you have the Indian style beds instead of the back-breaking box-spring stuff they have here!!

I love the colors as Orange is my all time fav color. However, I have mostly burgundy/cherry in our home :) What I like the most about your home is it's very uncluttered! I want to achieve that look and yet keep my beloved Tchotchkes. Any tips on that would be much appreciated :)

eagerly awaiting your kitchen tour!!!

Deb said...

Very nice! love the rugs. And I really like the bangle wall art idea!

Simran said...

Hi Kamini,

The bangle stand/wall art is simple BEAUTIFUL! Can you give some inputs on how you put it through? It's awe inspiring.

Kamini said...

Simran...the bangle stand is a store bought one. I didn't have to do anything but hang it on the wall. Its a set of 9 (3 x 3) spokes with that jeweled thing at the end. One of those rare finds at a crafts store in Hyderabad. :-) I think if you have access to a welding tool, or know a welder, you could make one yourself. Might be a fun project.
