It’s the 14th of Feb, and here is a love story. Home love! Vineeta Nair had a recent contest on Facebook and that’s where I got my first glimpse of Seema Singh’s home. I contacted her, and Seema was happy to email me immediately with pics of her home. I will hand over this blog post to Seema, as she tells you her home story!

 

——————————————————-
I am Seema. I have been married for 23 years, and I have changed homes all over India
12 times! My home reflects my style..all things quaint & wonderful. I
love eclectic decor and every piece has a story to tell.I love
looking into nooks & crannies in all the places I visit.especially
flea markets. I have the attitude of a Blue Jay…collecting things to do
up my nest.

My home has an old world charm & things handed over the
generations belonging to my grand parents.My garden is my pride &
joy.  I believe that every home has a soul. This is a snap shot of my
life with loads of simple abundance & love.My husband Rakesh puts up
with all my kinks whether it’s helping me load (a lovely!!) boulder in
the car boot or stopping the car
on the highway so I can pick pretty seeds off the trees! 

Here’s a peek into Seema’s home, as she personally gives you a guided tour.

Geographic a couple of years back.

I am more scared of bookruptcy than bankruptcy.This lovely old
bookshelf was picked from an old
Parsi gentleman who was moving abroad. This was made in 1910!I love the
feel of old wood & the stories attached to each piece that I have
at home.
Thanks Seema (and Rakesh), you have a gorgeous home! And, dear readers I leave you all with this dreamy image of a birdcage gently swaying in Seema’s garden, have a lovely 14th of Feb, everyone!
