Home tours are great ways to get motivated by people around the world! By the Home Tours, one can easily watch the lovely interiors and can obviously pick Home Styling tricks!
Today’s guest on my blog is Ms Sangitha Aanand. She is a well-known Home Decor Blogger!
She is a person who inspires me a lot; she is the one whom I admire for her sense of home styling, which is very traditional, unique & creative too! We can say her home is a true reflection of Indian Traditional Homes, I am a passionate follower of her blog Sajavat.
Read more about Ms Sangitha Aanand and her home in her own words:
Home is where your story begins! And this is so true in my case. We may travel places but true happiness is finally in the countless, small moments we spend at home as a family.
Am Sangitha Aanand, an Engineer by education and a passionate blogger by choice. The most ordinary and simple moments in our life is what gives us the utmost pleasure. Keeping this in mind, I try to embrace slow living.
As a family, we are fond of travelling and exploring places. Souvenirs especially handmade and handicrafts of a particular region often find a place in my décor.
My décor mantra is to avoid clutter, keep stuff organized and decorate with pieces that resonate with your own personality. Traditional styling combined with comfort is what works for us!
Being a décor blogger, many of you might have already seen many corners of my home, so today let me show you around our kids’ room and some vignettes captured all around the home.
We live in South Bangalore in an apartment, that is well lit and sunlight blessing us almost throughout the day. I have kept the colours on the wall neutral with just one highlighted wall. This ensures that I have the freedom to experiment by adding colours through the various décor accents, which I constantly keep changing. As you shall notice, plants are very crucial in my feelings of home. Decorating with naturals and all things traditional is a huge part of me.
Let me take you to my kids’ room. Orange and green is the main colour here, which are supposed to be energetic colours. The wardrobe has nature-inspired design on it.
As you enter…
We have tried to incorporate enough storage for books, clothes, games and other essentials, keeping in mind their growing years. Nothing goes to the trash in our place without giving a thought on recycling/ reusing. The yellow chair is one such, which is now used as a place for keeping away the book they read at night. Similar is the story of my son’s small, colourful toy truck that you see below the mirror. Sometimes it becomes a planter, at other times it holds other knick-knacks from balls to bey blades to hair brushes etc.
All these pretty wooden ‘vahanas’ were once my son’s toys, now merrily adorning the bookshelves. They not only lend colour and interest to the shelves but also nostalgia!
This is a study cum craft desk. It has a pin-up board where in my daughter keeps adding all her work. It also has some sketches and a canvas gifted by her friends and cousin.

The other side of the bed…
This cross stitch bedspread is handmade by her mother and was a gift to her daughter on her birthday.
Again, the fish shaped wooden pallankuzhi (traditional board game) is a customized one. She painted those fish motifs by own, inspired by Indian folk art ‘Gond art’ from Madhya Pradesh.
Have a quick look at some of the vignettes captured over a period of time by her…
A dhokra table, brass lamps, planter, mirrors …art and craft from various corners of our country.
Floor seating created when you have friends and family and need that relaxed, extra seating space.
Beautiful planters are the part of her interior!
