House Tour: Iniyaal’s Green Home in Coimbatore

For those of us living in the concrete urban jungles, Iniyaal’s home in Coimbatore comes as a refreshing change. Saranya, fondly known as Iniyaal in the blogging world stays with her parents and sister in the midst of farms and coconut grooves. Imagine waking up each morning to the sounds of birds and the fragrance of fresh flowers and wet clay, sipping freshly brewed coffee watching the greenery….dream come true, isn’t it? Every window in her house opens to a green landscape (how lucky!). The background pics are the proof for the greenery in and around her house.

Iniyaal’s home is spacious with furniture that blends in with the greenery outside. Glass is extensively used as Iniyaal’s sister prefers glass over wood.

Terracotta figurines deck up the balcony and grills. Her home is filled with crafty things she and sister make.

The souvenirs collected by her family during the international travels adorn most corners of the house.

Saranya and her sister’s crafting ventures and decor ideas are found all over the house. What do you do if you are good at crafting, take it to the next level of course. Saranya recently opened up her etsy shop called Papyrus selling her handcrafted eco-friendly products. Do check it out.

Isn’t she lucky to be staying amidst greenery doing what she enjoys? This is what I call blissful living. The fact that she is finds inspiration in her green abode is evident in her photography, art, blog and poetry. Check out her blogs at artbeautysociety and Handmade Heaven.

The Cooks Nook is still open till this weekend, so grab your cameras and get clicking now!

  5. It is a pleasure doing our home as the greenery around and chirping of birds are an inspiration. we prefer simple furniture, little souvenirs and memorabilia, and hand made items to deck up the house.
    For the eco-friendly components, we have pavement blocks all around to allow rain water to seep into the ground when it rains. the sunshade runs around the house and are made of the red Mangalore tiles.
