Hello everyone, this is Archana from Rang Decor and this is my first guest post ever and I would like to thank Priya for inviting me to do this post.
I would also like to congratulate 'Once Upon a Tea Time... Design Stories' for completing one whole year of great design ideas. All the very best.
An Annapakshi Lamp
Today I want to share with you all some ideas for brightening up corners of our homes with traditional Indian brass lamps.
Oh yes, we do use them during festivals and special occasions to illuminate our homes, but how about using them in our everyday life to bring beauty into our home decor.
Here are some arrangements from my home.
This is the traditional Gajalakshmi Lamp against our orange wall.
A 'Paavai Lamp' ( A lady holding a diya) teamed with a beautiful potted plant adds immense beauty to a tiny chest.
My old traditional board game 'Pallanguzhi' is used as a stand for a centre table arrangement with simple brass diyas.
Float some flowers in the simple brass diyas and see it get transformed into a lovely centre piece.
A small 'Paavai Lamp' adding it's charm to an arrangement on the window sill.
A miniature 'Kerala Lamp' adds its Indian beauty to my dresser and on the study table.
Hope you found these simple arrangements interesting. So don't wait for special occasions to take out your traditional brass lamps, make everyday special by creating your own arrangements. Let your creativity flow:-)
