HELLO AUGUST! And Hello , new home! My excitement was all over Instagram/Twitter/Facebook as I crossed each milestone in designing my dream house. Small,cosy and blue.I will give you a detailed peek later!
All things bordering turquoise make me go weak in my knees. When I was browsing through the INDIA CIRCUS website, I was instantly attracted to all things titled: Legend of the cranes. There was a visiting card-SOLD OUT, Iphone cover-SOLD OUT, purse-SOLD OUT. There was a mug, but I don't drink coffee. And then I saw these 12"cushion covers in poly-velvet.
I have found a mysterious positivity in this design. Its not just the color, but the cranes as well. Though INDIA CIRCUS by Krsna Mehta is a label synonymous with all things Indian, there is something very oriental about this design. Most of his designs combine Mughal elements with a surreal panache. The other favorites are art deco with a dash of Mumbaiya masala. The colors are seldom dull. They make me happy. And this is the first time I have paired an Indian attire on the blog. Hope you like it too!
Getting back to the cranes , FENG SHUI associates cranes with good luck and prosperity. A pair of cranes denotes fidelity and faithfulness.The Japanese call it the Bird of Happiness. The chinese see this magestic bird as a symbol of happy, smooth and long life. Kept in any corner of the house in the form of a painting or image, the crane brings prosperity to the home. I am not a believer of old beliefs, however this design has got me thinking.
P.s: They ship to over 200+ countries. So pretty readers across the globe should rejoice :)
