sneak peek: my new home

Hi lovely people..How are you all doing? I have moved to our new home. This home like our previous homes is close to nature.. We live on a mountain and have the view of the beautiful green mountain...There is so much greenery outside..Every morning we wake up by the chirping of the birds..It is really serene and beautiful..

The move didn't go as we had excepted ..It was a total mess by the moving company..We ended up unpacking all the boxes ourselves and since they broke our dear swiss-made bed we have to sleep on a makeshift bed on floor and go through the slow insurance process to recover our loss..:( This move has turned my 5 month old into a mommy magnet.. So we took turns to take care of him while the other one unpacked and arranged our stuff..

So this is how our apartment looked on the Day1-2-3.. I must say it was overwhelming..

I just piled up all the boxes as I unpacked in a corner..On Day 4 when the movers took away the boxes it was a great relief..The task of making this space look like "our apartment" has begun..

After 3 hours of cleaning and arranging I managed to make it the dining table look better..While organizing my stuff I found some hidden treasures.. 


The table runner is a banarasi saree table runner .. It adds the much needed color and jazz to the room..


The table coasters are from Bali.. hand painted on wood in batik style..The tea is Aveda's organic herbal tea..It is amazing..If you are a tea lover you have try this one..It has after taste of peppermint and licorice root..


 Bought the white lilies when we went for a walk in the evening..I still have to arrange the balcony and other areas!! I am focusing on my baby's nursery right now!!

Always nice to have something cozy
and warm on your table tops.

Moving is such a pain but there is this great feeling when everything is all put away and organized and you really start living in your home...it is an ahhhh feeling. We moved just over a year ago and I am still loving that ahhh feeling. Great idea for the table runner!! So fun. Thanks for linking up today on Centerpiece Wednesday.

That view is amazing! We moved house too when my daughter was 5 months old! Our packers unpacked and set up the furniture the day we moved, and we unpacked the kitchen right then as my baby slept. The remaining boxes were unpacked over then next 3-4 days, and then I was done. I worked into the night to get everything out and put away, was desperate to not see boxes every morning!

Personally, I prefer a suburban community over the city, that’s why I totally appreciate the view from your floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Looking out there every morning must’ve been really rejuvenating. I am sad about the moving company you hired, destroying your bed and leaving you to unpack your things. On a lighter note, you seem to be adjusting well with the move. Piling the boxes was very organized. It doesn’t make the unpacking look so chaotic. Good job!

Redecorating can be difficult sometimes, especially if you have tons of stuff. But it seems that you’re doing quite well. I love what you did on your dining table. It’s very simple and unique. The colors and the patterns of the table runner give a vibrant appeal to your wooden table. And the white lilies are very lovely!
