Hotel ~ Leela

I'm still at the Leela Palace Hotel and can't take my eyes of the exteriors of this hotel

The building is magnificent and has an old world charm.. 

and I simply fell in love with every pillar in this hotel.. 

The outdoor seating is the best part

and the gardens, definitely worth a tour.. 

*sigh*.. Holidays are made of all things beautiful..

Hotel Interiors - ITC Gardenia

My recent visit to Bangalore took me to a few hotels. Im always intrigued by hotel foyer decor. I love when hotels pay attention to their entrances as well. 

Featuring today, is the modern ITC Gardenia, Bangalore

In particular I liked the below image, where the bed or seating seems to be floating in mid air. The effect is created by a mirror base. I was truly impressed.

Lush open spaces.. like a maharajas courtyard..

And a few impressive sculptures.. 

Do you have images of hotels that impress you? Email them to

Old Church Beauties

This is the Church of South India, All Souls Church. This is one of the oldest buildings in Coimbatore.

This was built in 1867 with funds raised by Mrs.HR Grimes, wife of superintendent of the jail, and by Major WH Hessey (21st Madras Native Infantry, Staff Corps) Deputy Superintendent. Rev Henry Pope, the first chaplain was appointed in 1870 and the church was dedicated 1872.

It's called CSI All Souls Church.

This is an amazing kind of beauty... isn't it?

Home tour ~ Sunitha

I know what you are thinking.. This is the fourth and final part of this home tour.. But I still haven't had enough and still want to see more *smiles* 

A little about Sunitha's home

“Home is where the heART is” is “the” statement that I believe in :)
I have tried to give a contemporary feel with a mixture of both tradition and modern look. Have used lot of wood, brass and tiny arty things to create the effect. Small little plants are always my part of designs. 

I believe that plants are one of the biggest elements which can enhance the look of the place with a warmth and fresh atmosphere around. To the walls, I have used vibrant colors like red, yellow, orange and green. 

I feel red is very Indian and traditional colour which have used lot in the living area. Yellow for the kitchen walls and green for kitchen cabinets, and this yellow and green combination was always there on my mind before I executed in my planning stage to give a retro look to my kitchen. 

I love photo frames and how could I not use my photographs which have taken during my travel :) I shortlisted few of them and got it framed!! Lots of love and interest with little possessiveness excites me to keep doing something new for my home. It gives me a sense of happiness and satisfaction! It is also a stress buster sometimes :)
