When pastels ignite excitement..

Pastels have always uplifted me.. I remember my biased attention towards lilies and lavender while I explored the hills in my childhood. Hydrangea make excellent flower arrangements which have a pastel hints to them. There was a time when pastels were associated only with nurseries but now their visibility is increasing and can be spotted more often. To me, they are very close and attainable and I have picked up few pieces in pastels and neutrals to give a new dimension to festive collections.

Architecture inspires me to a great extent. Captured early in the morning by my friend, this vintage building from my Alma-mater stole the show with its pastel hues..

The maroon fabric just makes the base of this table spread. It is made in tissue with  Zardozi that is a kind of embroidery . An off-white piece but a great pick for any festive season.

Some flowers don’t lose their fragrance even when they dry..I suppose style should possess the same character of being delicate and powerful…

So, this is about it. I am sure, pastels make a great festive look as well. They possess the delicacy and can ignite the excitement. Enjoy them around you and a happy festive season ahead.

Happy decorating.. :))

I am Rohini and having trained as an interior stylist, I have been working in this field for a couple of years. I personally advocate an eclectic style for my home which maintains the flavour of being evergreen, nonetheless I am open to all the styles on board along with the creative beauties that I get to see. Travelling is a part and parcel of my life since childhood and I am glad as it helps me to discover new places, sometimes in a remote corner with hidden artists and some exquisite craftsmanship which I not only try to imbibe in my designs but also try to bring the artist in focus. Design and creativity gives me a sense of constant evolution. Penning my thoughts on travel, life, art, interior design and good workmanship, as and when they appear on my canvas. The Pink Lotus is a blog where I write about home styling, travel encounters and life memories or experiences...Welcome aboard!
