My new Abode.. (Picture Post)

This post is long overdue. Thanks to T and P for reminding me to do this.
The new home is doing wonders to my system. There is this positive energy about the place which has me all pepped up. Touchwood!!!
There is a lot to be done to do up the place. Right now we have the basic structure in place. I will be gradually doing up the house like I want to. Aman has put a budget freeze on any house expenditure for a while. There is a reason for that too which I will share with you eventually.

Lets start with how the setting sun appears from my balcony!!

The first one is the view from the living room balcony and the second is the view from the bedroom balcony.

This is the drawing room and the dining room (notice the curtains !!!)

That’s the sitting area.. The opening on the left is the kitchen

And this is the master bedroom

And these are my prized paintings!!!

I just realized I have no pictures on the Kitchen and the other bedroom.

So this is where I now live. I know a lot has to be done. My drawing room desperalty needs a new rug and some fancy settees. Those cane chairs are actually meant for the balcony.
But like I said its budget freeze as of now as something big will happen soon!!! Keep guessing!!!

Updated – as an afterthought why don’t you all pick it up as a tag. Its simple, take the reader through a virtual tour of your house!! Give it shot.

    >very nice :)i particularly like the views from both balconies. The house looks large and airy. And I love your dining table.waiting for the surprise to be revealed…… 🙂

  18. >Nice…very nice….and any house with a balcony wins my heart. that little bit of open space to call your own. I love the curtains and how the light shines through them and the painting and the shape of your dinning table. I miss bean bags here. Used to have a couple thrown around my tv area in India. they are so damn bloddy expensive here that it makes sense to buy proper furnitures instead.
