Walls with Character ~ Preethi

Your home…. is your home.. and it reflects you love, your passion & brings out the character that you want to show off about… And I!!! simply love peeping into your home… via my blog!! Thank you my lovelies for sharing your pics here..

Like I said earlier…. a wall with character requires the right decision, the precision of a fusion of ideas… I should be calling this post… Home with Character… I love the floor.. and how the colour of the wall blends in with the floor, the soft furnishings that tell us a story…

Dont you want to see what's in the curio cabinet?? *smiles*

Preethi ~
I love traditional ethnic decor and am a big fan of it... Incorporated in our home are some of these elements. The main picture on the wall which is a central focus is a Mysore glass painting - a wedding gift from one of my husband's family friend.
The three framed Ganeshas have been with us for a long time and were actually prints from Archies Gallery.

The next is a picture of our entry foyer with a close up of a mini Tanjore paiting and some brass artifacts.
a closer look...
Tell me... tell me... you are as curious as I am.. to see what's in here?

The curio content includes two big brass pieces - a urali (belonging to my husband's maternal grandmother) and a kindi (belonging to his paternal grandmother for which we got some permanent polish done)

Do you want to see more of Preethi's home?? Would you like to see a home tour??
Do you have a wall as pretty as this?? Would you like to share it... Email me on
