Design Blogger's Fab Five for the Home- Installment III

After a very long break, I'm back with the 3rd installment of Design Blogger's Fab Five. Today we are getting a peek into the lovely home of Dr Lakshmi Arvind of Celebrations Decor

I love Lakshmi’s guest post for this installment of Design Blogger’s Fab Five. Not only because her images are so amazing, but because she has gone about thinking about her home in a very different way. Her Fab Five list is very abstract, in fact its more about the 5 fundamental ideas around which she has moulded her home. Although abstract, you can feel a clarity of thought when you see her ideas in the form of images and I’m sure they will inspire you in decorating your homes!


 Refreshing colors add a touch of warmth and liveliness to any space and reflect your personality. I love rustic colors because they give me a sense of tranquillity and security.

 I believe in keeping it simple and I love a home that is uncomplicated. One can derive a sense of clarity and peace.

Connections with the past that add a sense of grace, charm and comfort and for me, form a big part of my design psyche.

The texture of different elements like wood, metal, cane as well as fabrics add a sense of depth and interest to a space.

 Elements of nature could be anything from dried pods and leaves in a bowl to fresh flowers to floating bougainvilleas.

Thanks Lakshmi for sharing your thoughts and for the divine images!
