Home Is!!

I grew up in a city in Uttarakhand and back in my school days at home, I was allowed to customise my room in any way I wanted. Paint on the walls, nail boards and accessories, posters and murals, just about anything that I wanted and I did a very good job at it back then. So, when I got to move out and come to Hyderabad for my first job; I was pretty ecstatic to be living in a new city and for the opportunity to create a new pretty space of my own. But that never happened!

My dream housing situation was to live in a Studio Apartment, with all my friends in close proximity and like go crazy with the decor and style of the apartment to reflect my personality & feelings, keeping it homely and comfy at the same time. Sadly didn’t work out cause you are living in a rented apartment and tempering with the walls in any way is like a strict no no. I feel like that’s a very common Indian thing. To top it all off, I have lived in 4 different houses during my stay in Hyderabad and trust me all had this weird creamy, yellowish colour on the walls (why don’t people pick some other colour šŸ˜¦ šŸ˜¦ ).

I have come to realise that you should be in a space that reflects you, comforts you, inspires and aspires you. You are going to be in your house/ room for a good 12 hours if not more everyday and so it should be a place that you come back to and feel comfortable and cozy in. Creating a home away from home can’t be possible without your own sweet touches and I have finally decided that I am going to take that step to do what I have always wanted to – “Paint my room in the shades and textures I LOVE” and don’t give a S**T about anything else.

So the process began last night when I narrowed down to 2 colour options to paint the walls of my room: Lush Meadow(PANTONE 18-5845) and Sharkskin(PANTONE 17-3914) and for texture a little bit of grainy, concrete wall look or the watercolour effect. And thats when the adrenaline and excitement filled me again and I decided to write this blog to share my final picks with you all. Might be of some help to those of you who have always wanted to do something like this or even to those who are in the mood to redecorate or just go crazy šŸ˜‰ .
