Keh rahi tumse yeh khamoshiyaan.....

Keh rahi tumse yeh khamoshiyaan.....
(My feeble attempt at translation: My silence tells you....)
(To hear me... errr.. Shubha Mudgal croon it, go here)

My silence tells you....
~ That I am still furiously attempting to unpack. 
~ That I am fretting over having to replace the bookcases(read:Ikea) that broke during the move.
~ That the unpacked boxes(from the lack of bookshelves and from closets with no shelves!) are severely affecting my creativity to 'do up' the house, while the husband hollers about how we are soon to have an endless stream of guests and it is time to snap out of my zen mode.

This post is an ode to the colour RED
It is an ode to the home that was. 
It is an ode to new beginnings. 



My old apartment had a lot of red/ maroon accents. I even had a bathroom dominated by a REquaint Chinese cupboard and heavily accented with other red accessories. Every visitor staunchly claimed that it was the best room in the house ;)


This apartment now has a bathroom in soothing blues and greens and a living room that is a mass of boxes. 



So help me say goodbye to red today, while I reach out to other colours in the palette.....

Good day to SHP's Asian readers, good night to everybody else tucked away in bed...

The four poster bed is gorgeous and I love the last pic (the ones will the drapes - seems very fairytale like :))

:D. I trust you've moved in and settled down by now? Sorry to have missed the chaos, but change may be heading our way soon, too!

Red? It'll always be the one constant (in its many avtaars of course!).
