Our Dining Alcove

Hello again!

I’ve been on a long hiatus as we were overwhelmed by the orders that were to be shipped by Diwali. I’d also like to thank you all for showering us with so much love and support. It means the world to us that a dream of two people who are passionate about decor is so well accepted by you all!

This post is about the dining corner we finally are getting to. We moved into our new home in September and as this house is very different from our previous one- it’s taking longer than expected to set it up.

To be honest, there’s not a lot to say about this corner of our home as its still work-in-progress. But I thought if I don’t start writing now, I never would!

So lets get started!

(Please note, none of my links are sponsored and all are my honest reviews. I’m sharing this purely to help you decode my look)

We created this look last night for our post-diwali celebratory dinner as we listened to our interview on Radio Indigo (sorry, couldn’t stop myself from sharing this bit!) Here’s my post on it

Window

The focal point of this area is the window and I had to dress it up! Lighting on the window isn’t just for the decoration; we put it up there  to distract from the unfinished balcony. Net curtains are from Ikea. They are super pretty and instantly create a whimsical look. You can find them here.

We picked up the pretty blue shell wind chime from Bali. The shells on it are called Capiz. I picked it from a small shop outside Ubud.

Bar Stool

The red metal bar stool under the wind chime is imported by us- its super study and has a very smooth finish. Available in 2 sizes and 3 colours- Red, Blue and Baby Pink. Get in touch with me to know more

The grey candle is from itsy bitsy- it comes in a pretty glass jar but I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re like fragrant candles.  You can find it here

Balcony

Because a shut door wasn’t looking the best, we decided to leave it open for the night- welcoming a slight breeze and sight of pretty plants. I picked up a few of these plants from lal bagh nursery and the rest were stolen from my dadi’s collection! If you’re in Bangalore, do visit lal bagh nursery- they have a wide variety of plants that are relatively cheap.

We manufactured the little plant stand. Its for Rs. 1199 (including delivery) and is made of great quality pine wood. Unlike online counterparts, it’s very sturdy. We also manufactured the wooden planter on the balcony railing. Its made from pinewood and has a rough, rustic finish to it. Can be made rustic or polished as per your style! You can contact me to place an order.

Sea weed basket is one of my favourites and is from Home stop. Find it here. You can even find similar in Ikea. Link here

The runner rug underneath was bought from a small shop in Srirampura Market (Bangalore). Do visit the market if you’re in the vicinity- Its a good place for affordable fabric and furnishing!

Dining table

The candle plate is from Ikea (its not available anymore- I know because I have an unhealthy obsession with Ikea.) Teal candles are from Marshalls in New York and pink tea light votives are a very old purchase from home center.

My favourite here are the dinner plates (which I lovingly call my “dream set”)from homestop. Here’s a top shot of my much-loved plates (picture below is an old one, not from my current setting)

The lemon yellow napkins are vintage. My dadi bought a whole load of these back in the ‘50s. They have pretty roses cross-stitched on them by hand! I’m lucky as dadi too is a collector of all things pretty!

Almost forgot the dining table- that’s manufactured by us!
