The best part of my home and a Crochet WIP :))

My crafting is going on but at a slow pace . I have been waiting to share pics of my new flat since we moved few months back . We did not hire any interior designer to design something trendy which might not have described our taste , rather , I designed everything and got it approved from Raj and Anshita :)

I have worked really hard in searching ideas and creating designs , measuring every inch of space for effective utilization . Our home is a mix of colors, vintage , trendy and conventional ----all under one roof :)

The best and loveliest part is ...........let the pictures tell you :)

Hello, I am Simba....Bittu's friend , and I will show you .....

Bittu's den :)
Bittu is Anshita's nickname .

Anshita wanted a bay window sitting area, so her mom turned her window into one :)
On either sides, are her clothes cupboards . 

A small nook to keep her book/cup/bowl

A big five feet wide mirror

She keeps only daily needs on these two racks . The actual treasure goes into the cupboard .

Her toy shelf , its five feet high......oops,  her mom still hasn't cleared the top

This was a designing challenge for the carpenter to turn the plywood in a curve . Anshita's mom did not want her to bump into cupboard corners 

I love these dolls on the cupboard....

So many cute ones :) Aren't they ???

A peek into the better part of mess inside the toy cupboard . The empty space is where Bittu's school bag goes . She is in school right now .

The longest handle in the house......2 feet long

Matching drawer handles....her mom was lucky to find those

'Shaun the sheep' was Anshita's her mom got one sheep knob too :)

A picket fence for wall hooks. This is still awaiting few details from mom but it is already in use .

Bittu's Cork&white board is usually full .

This is her mom's favorite picture on the toy cupboard .......isn't it a cute mom-daughter pair ?:)
That's all from Simba........Over to mom!

Now, I just need to add some handmade items to the room. The above crochet squares (total 18) are going to make something nice for her room .

The entire wooden work is done with a conventional water proof plywood and printed laminates (decolam) . For durability reasons we preferred this over the popular MDF work . I will show you few more pics of the home in next post .

I hope you enjoyed the pictures :)

Have a crafty week ahead !!
Preeti :)

  22. What a pretty and happy room. Love the window seat.

  23. I have been coming back to this post to see pictures for many days. I thot I had commented earlier but looks like I was carried over by the beauty and elegance of the room, that I forgot to comment.
    I love the bay window and the small nook to keep stuff. It looks so classy and I'm already thinking of the amount of hours I could spend under such window.
    You have a wonderful view from balcony ( from other post pic) and sure this window view will be great.
    Have a great time.. there is always so much satisfaction in getting things done in good and expected way. Great Job it is.

  24. Gosh, I wish things around here were as neat and tidy. Great job on all the special details. Especially the bay window seating area and little nook. Love those. :)
