Natures Touch

Kerala’s blessed locales have been generously showered with immense beauty. Am sharing a beautiful place near by my home called Amaramkavu, Thodupuzha,Kerala.

 Surrounded by acres of forest containing 1000 year old trees. There is a small Vana Durga temple situates in the middle of forest. There is a clear path gives to the temple for the deities. 

The smoky swirls rising from the flickering flames of burning camphor carrying with them a signature smell. The sharp, strong and invigorating fragrance of burning camphor, agarbathies will unlock our memories of those countless visits to the temples, Isn't it ?

Everywhere surrounded with trees and greens which we could never get elsewhere.  These are some of the elements of nature that turn on the innate human feeling of love and relaxation.

Diwali Delights 2017

Diwali, popularly referred to as the “Festival of Lights”.

Diyas, flowers, fireworks, home filled with aroma of sweets and  the warmth of families & friends. That’s the real essence of Diwali celebrations.

This is how I adore my home this diwali with the diyas lighted at the entrance, living room and the balcony. 

The substitute to marigold were yellow carnation.

However, Diwali is not just about lightning  diyas, fireworks and celebrating togetherness, but also rediscovering ones inner peace.

May this festival of lights bring you peace, prosperity, success, health and immense happiness! 

" Everything in nature" wishes you all a very Happy Diwali !

I found this store Freedom Tree by sheer accident during our recent Goa trip. This store follows  contemporary and innovative style with their unique pattern which is something very different. 

Latika Khosla, the design director of Freedom Tree Design, a color and trend studio based in India, one of the founders of Takete Maluma, now brings the brand afresh to us as Freedom Tree.  

She is an international trend and colour consultant based in Mumbai, decided that India’s voice should be heard and wanted to bring ‘designed and made in India’ to the forefront of lifestyle living brands.
