And then there were more….photos

Mark Henderson (our super talented photographer) and Team Purvaai spent a gruelling day of filling cushion covers, climbing on boxes to hang curtains on trees, and talking to Farmer James and his dog for permission to use his farm gate, and side stepping Thames Valley Police while we played around with a bench by a roadside! Yes, we were on our latest photo shoot and what a day it was.

Phew…now we have some cracking shots of our latest hand crafted products including cushions, throws, tote bags, curtain panels et all. With our focus on texture and detail at Top Drawer this year, this new range coming soon to our website will be spot on if you care for the craft while glamming up your home. Stay tuned to our website and in the meanwhile enjoy the photo journey of our latest shoot here…..

Spring Inspiration: Blue and Green

UK has been blessed with some fabulous weather for the last few days – a fantastic way to welcome Spring this year! And ofcourse with Spring, I have been possessed with a sense of well being looking at all the glorious blooms in my neighbourhood gardens. So I’ve decided to give my living room a Spring makeover. This season I am obsessing over the combination of blue skies and green foliage – and the abundance of both! Take a look at some of the inspiring living room decor ideas (all copyrights rest with respective websites).

Nice clean lines and contemporary shades of blue and green

Soft and peaceful pallette

Fab centre table and lamp

Having been thoroughly inspired, this is how my living room now looks – I love cushions – more the better – so the blues have been introduced using cushions made from left-over curtain fabric (the most awesome handloom silks I found in India). The crewel embroidered cushions are a gift from my mom. Ahhhh…..the tranquility of lounging here (atleast till my 5 and 37 year old football freaks come home to their resident living room football field)

Tranquil cushion-filled heaven
