TRYST WITH THE RETRO........HOME TOUR (2) Shabana and Simrat

Home tour of Simrat and Shabana.......

Two homes which take you back in time , and welcome you with the warmth and aesthetics of  a bygone era. The collection of accessories is antique and vintage...one of the best suited theme for indian homes. Shabana who specializes in literature and linguistics and has worked with british council, inherits an artistic heritage.....Her mother gifted her this handmade batik on silk which stands a centerpiece on the wall.....this batik work is undoubtedly the showstopper in her sitting area.

 Shabana is very proud of her manpuri black pottery tea set and her little knicks and knacks of jaipuri blue pottery....This black pottery from our north eastern states make for a very ethnic decor piece as well as a very eco friendly  way of serving and dining.
 Coming to Simrats abode........her house has a lovely collection of stocking and paper flowers....needless to say made all by herself....Simrat teaches in a management course conducted by Defence services staff college and loves to keep herself busy with various hobby classes as well.

 Above is a view of her own colourful creations being illuminated by the morning light.
 I particularly loved this little box at simrats house which has a riot of colors and patters ....behind it stands a carved wood flower vase....which has a typical rajasthani royal look to it. Below you can see the lovely antique tea set from Shabana's home which she has paired with some hand painted pine cones...and they go together as if they are made for each other ..

 Some beautiful details at shabanas home........love the peacocks on the ceramic tray
