I once remember reading this, “A house is made of bricks and beams and a home is made of hopes and dreams.” This is one quote that has always stayed with me. I have always lived in a protected environment since my childhood but in the last few years things have changed. I have travelled so extensively across the country that I have lost count of the number of houses that I have bid goodbye. But no matter where I go, at the end of the day, all I love to do is return to the comfort of my home, sit on my favourite bean bag and demand a hot cuppa of chai.
My home has never looked the same through the years. My mom, an avid decorator, prefers to keep changing the look of our house every now and then. Yet, she manages to encapsulate all the emotions that we associate with it and at the same time manages to make our house look trendy. Since she is such an expert on making houses beautiful, I have decided to ask her for her favourite place to shop and of course her simple home décor ideas 🙂
Brighten your windows
The sun may be sulking this winter and not letting the warm sunlight seep into your drawing room, but that doesn’t mean that your windows should look miserable. Lift the spirits of your drawing room windows by gifting them brand new curtains!
A Pop of color
A pop of colour on your sofa will will go a long way in making your living room look cheerful.
A magical rug
No, a rug won’t help you fly to distant places but it will definitely add a soft comfy look to your drawing room. Your feet, too, will thank you for sparing them the agony of walking barefoot on the cold, hard floor.
Add a green touch to your drawing room by placing indoor plants all around. If you are scared that the plant may die due to your absent mindedness (trust me, I’ve killed too many plants in my day), then opt for artificial flowers to enliven your drawing room (if you caught on the little joke, which was unintended, then same pinch!)
Knicks and knacks
Instead of breaking your piggy bank on expensive decor pieces, invest in a few quirky knick knacks to make your drawing room livelier.
BUT, and this is a big but, where do you find all these things? Especially, if you don’t want to run from store to the other looking for them? Go to my mom’s favourite décor shopping destination, My Iconic Home. All the essentials that she has mentioned in her tips sections are available on this fabulous website. Bedroom essentials, electronics, furniture, dining room décor, mattresses, lamp, lighting…phew I will run out of breath if I start listing the huge range of products that they have!
Shopping is easy and their navigation is systematic and user friendly. I love the overall aesthetic appeal of their website; it is not too crowded yet they manage to showcase all their products beautifully.
Their prices are something that bring a smile to my mom’s face every single time and she loves the fact that she gets gorgeous products at great prices.
Let me end with my mom’s words, “With My Iconic home, you can create a home that you will be proud of!”
