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.
|Seema and Rakesh at their home|
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.

Another chitra santhe pic. This picture brings back a lot of fond
memories of my childhood when my gradnmom woke up at the crack of dawn
to do the rangoli before anyone left home.
My kitchen board & the quirky grooms wanted bags! (I have 2
girls 20 and 22 yrs old who I keep threatning with marriage!)
colorful bull from Jew town in Cochin & the Monk from Thailand.
I feel no home is complete without a pet & Lola here is the queen of all she surveys!
kitten has made it her home!
which sits a wooden Wine jug more than a 100 years old picked from Jew
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!
