Seema Singh’s Eclectic Home in Bangalore

The bedroom deck | Seema eclectic home tour

Total Incidence of Cancer in Canada

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.

bookcase antique was made in 1910 | Seema eclectic home tour

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!
