Before and After : Living Room

Waiting for the house with attached garage, I had decided to not decorate the currently allotted house. But it so happens always, that every time we get posted to a new place and move in the new house, my imagination takes wings and I itch to decorate it. I instantly know what needs to be around and what I can do without. Though my dear husband is always sceptical of my instant decisions but he admits that by the time I am through with my decorating brain wave, our house is worth a second glance. I guess this knack of decorating the insides of any house runs in my family. The houses of my parents’ and my sister are subtly graceful and done up very well…. a fact that is a matter of pride for me.

So as always, I could not stop myself more than one month from doing up this house while still waiting for a better house.  I regret not taking photographs of other houses that we occupied earlier in different cities, hence this time I made the effort to capture both before and after decorating my living room.


Now , after all the efforts I might as well stay put in the same house!!


About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....
