Hello Decor Enthusiasts!!
Sometimes my decor-thirsty soul craves so much to get a peek inside beautifully done homes all around the world that I just Google and spend a considerable amount of time admiring all the efforts that homeowners put in transforming a house into a home. Yes, I admit that I love to peek inside homes just to get a glimpse of “what’s new here”. I have been sharing Home Tours
on my blog for the past four years and I know you all love seeing the images of well-decorated homes. But what if I give you too the opportunity to peek inside beautiful homes!!!! Yes, I am talking about Video Home Tours. Today I am posting the first video home tour and now you can walk with the homeowners as they take you through their homes.
Links to buy home decor accessories that you see in this beautiful home have been embedded in their names in this blog and if you watch the video on YouTube then links can be found in the description box.
Today I am taking y’all to Gurugram(Gurgaon) to take a video tour of an elegant and pretty home of Rashmi and Manoj Chandra. I acquainted with Rashmi on Instagram as she used to tag me on stunningly beautiful images of her home that she shares every day (thanks to her) and I knew that Rashmi has those creative skills that one needs to transform any dull space into a zippy and eye-pleasing one.
Below is the entrance to her beautiful apartment where Rashmi and her husband create memories with their two children, a daughter who’s recently got a job in Bangalore, and a teenage boy who studies in 11th grade. A glimpse of the entrance and you already know what to expect next.
Below is the foyer where guests take a pause after entering the home and feel enveloped in the warmth of this space decorated by Rashmi. Hanging glass lanterns
and a little glass lamp
emanate warmth. Angels from Thailand are there to welcome guests. Jharokha
and Brass Ganesha lamp
on the other wall add an ethnic element to the decor.
Below is the closer shot for you to see the beautiful vignette. Rashmi shares some lovely memories with us, “When I was a kid I used to help my mom in decorating home and rearranging the furniture to make the place look more appealing. When I got married and we bought our own home, I realised the passion for home decor. My friends and relatives always say something nice whenever they visit us and those words of appreciation encourage me a lot.“
Below is the image of her living room that speaks a lot about the home owner, charming, elegant, warm and serene. Walls and furniture in subtle colors set the perfect background for the beautiful home accessories that Rashmi uses to add a pop of color. Glass candle holders
and crystal flower vase
on the coffee table add the touch of elegance and table runner adds the pop of red. Buddha cushions are beautifully complementing the Buddha figurine
placed on the side table accompanied by a beautiful elephant lamp
The gurgling sound of the water from the Lord Buddha water fountain
kept in one of the corners in the living room makes the ambience so calming that one can sit and listen to the sound for a long time. Next to which are aesthetically hung these beautiful brass lotus hanging diyas
. These brass lamps are show stoppers and create such a serene atmosphere. You can experience the sense of calm in the video if you watch this on YouTube.
Below is the dining room where the furniture in dark wood creates a statement. Rashmi loves to decorate and she admits that “Everyone loves their home but for me, my home is my lifeline. I’m so involved in it that often I forget to have food when I am cleaning and decorating my home.”
Next to this is Rashmi’s neat and clean kitchen. She loves clean edges. The functionality plays a major role in this space. Tinted glass bottles add a splash of color to make the space more interesting.
Rashmi loves to keep her space spick and span all the time and that’s how she loves to spend her time. Her hard work is evident here.
She keeps rotating the decor. Paintings, decor accessories and furnishings in one room find a place in another room after every few weeks or months. This practice makes her home look new and fresh without even spending a penny.
Now let’s head to the master bedroom. This is where Rashmi spends a lot of time. here is what she says about this room “I opted for subtle colors so that I feel calm and flowers are my weakness. I often buy them, they make me happy. Rajnigandha and white lilies are my favourites. Their intoxicating aroma fills the space to make the ambience more magical and serene.”
Before you enter the room this beautiful vignette on the cabinet warms the heart.
Here is Rashmi’s neat, tidy and beautiful bedroom.
With some paintings in dark tone that complements the furniture, she creates a cohesive look.
You can see these curtains swaying in the video and can sense the gentle touch of breeze. This room is airy and well-lit, that’s how it should be.
Here is the family room where all the family members sit and chat together for long.
Here is the seating space where she loves to play with colors and textures. She keeps changing the cushion covers and linen to change the entire look. In below picture, it looks so vibrant and lively with all those reds and teal.
Now in this below picture, the same space transforms into a serene place with the use of whites and a dash of warm color.
Here is another view of the same space.
Kids’ room is a simple and uncluttered space. Her kids didn’t want to place anything on the bed headboard so it has been kept clear. All the achievements of the kids are proudly displayed on the ladder shelf.
Though Rashmi did add her touch here by hanging some beautiful string lights and a dream catcher above the headboard.
So we have seen all the nooks and corners of Rashmi’s beautifully done up home. I hope you all enjoyed this home tour as much as you enjoyed all the previous ones. Do let her know your views in the comments and follow her on Instagram for a daily dose of eye candies.
