You know you've got style when ... !!! ... :):)

I love people who have a homes that are all about tem ... I like that kind of style ... and as I say this ... I must confess their is a certain home where I live ...  that I caught a peek of... this past Christmas. I am still trying to figure out how to meet up again with the lady of the house and tell her just how much I loved her home ... It is a home where every inch  and every piece of furniture spoke about whose home it is. Really, I call that kind of home a style statement.
Hmm! may be I should march upto her home and ring the bell and tell her exactly this ... :):) ... o.k ... if I muster up enough courage to do that ... you'll hear it here first ... ;)
Oh! please do stop smerking ... imagining me actually do that ... :):)
So here I am thinking ... we all have I love this and that ... pictures in our mind  ... or like many of us in our style files on the laptops ... so how do you use them ... once you figured what you enjoy, do you actually bring it out in real life or let it be in those style files ... we all need to discover ... and then just do it ... so in case you are figuring out things about what's your style ... well! how about some of these pictures from my style files ...

 ... if the new home you bought looks nothing like the original finishes but quite like this ... its official you got style ... :)

... if you chucked out the trend following basin and went to the ol' chap stone wala ... and this is what your bathroom now looks like ... wow ... you are way up there ...

... soooo , in case the decor style in the picture above  is  not really you  ... but that hot pink is another story ... and so you just went and bought ... 9413 pink silk by Asian Paints and now look what you got ... the hottest drawing room in town and with all those fluffed up cushions ... friends like me will never leave ... :):) ... Oh! you soooo got style ...


Homes and Gardens
 ...  I can so imagine Mrs. M , walking in and giving you the third degree about ... " aachaa ab ap tote bhi aainge" ... :):) ...
But no! you went right ahead and bought that lovely vintage piece and wow! it looks gorgeous ... you got style  ...

House And Garden
... no amount of Indian mom talk about us loving all colors earthy or bright ... could talk you out of it and your bedroom had to be this ... peaceful ... calm ... and serene ... cosy and comfortable ... just the way you always dreamt of it ... Boy! you got style ...

House to Home
... Ah! if all that gibberish talk about  keeping the walls all whites and neutrals is soooo boring ... and you haven't felt this way like you now do ... since you painted your room that deep blue ... shubi dubi doo ... you got it too ... :):)

... so you can't help your self ... and your collections are evergrowing ... but you manage to find some place for all the new pieces ... after all they are all about what you love ... Oh! you so have it ...

 ... so the walls in your home are a clusters of the random things from your life ... and you just smile when you look at all of them up there ... :):) ... oh! you so know what I'd say ...
And then, if that neutral room with your fav. chest of drawers ... is something you love to come home to ... Ahem! ... :):):) ... yes! yes!  ... its your style  ... you got it ...

...if nothing cuts it for you like a cozy wingback and a book and some tea ... you just love the texture of that stone floor ... :) ... you got it ...

I truly believe in you Rajee, styling should be something very much you. I would always love to confront so many things but as mentioned by you our Indian temp....dust and dirt especially the place I reside gurrrrrgaon does not let me experiment….to that level.

But surely your post is a set back and with time definitely there’s lot to come. Thanks for the motivation, Shivani

This post is SO meaningful. I think a lot of people have incredible style but there are things that keep us from fully unleashing it. Why keep it tamed. Let it go, let it out! Just go for it. These places don't have to be somebody else's place.
