Re-Doing My Home!

Whenever we think or hear the word, Home, we instantly delve into a nostalgic mode, playing back our myriad, fond memories that took place in our home. But most often, only the bad and bitter ones are more etched in our memory and we could easily remember them, bringing a painful sting to the mind. Nevertheless, Home is the one place in the world, we can easily and effortlessly be ourselves, in the sense, we can do whatever we feel like and be our honest selves. In other places, we tend to change our behaviour and actions according to the social norms. You can dig your nose, make funny noises with your mouth or even fart, no questions asked.

Nowadays, with the population explosion and decrease in land area, builders are promoting the apartment-villa-clubhouse-vertical height home lifestyle. They promote their apartments with attractive ads that enumerates the luxurious features and amenities with an aesthetic looking graphic of the completed house. I have always liked the contemporary style of homes. After watching the TV show - Two and a Half Men, I was fantasising about a beach house of my own along the seashore, but that looks like a distant dream. Next I was thinking of homes in the zenith from the ground. First of all the view outside would be awesome and secondly the cool, serene atmosphere and of course there would be no mosquitoes. I think the following items would best accentuate the aesthetics of my ideal home.

1. Style Homez Zebra Printed Classic Bean Bag

I've always liked bean bags. They are sort of snugly. They serve a multi-purpose - to sit and sleep. Atleast I could do so. It is most suitable to watch movies or play games from a comfortable distance. The thing about it is we can stretch the material to increase the surface area for us to sit. It is also very easy to carry around. So there is the portability factor which simplifies the task of sweeping or cleaning. I liked this particular bean bag because of the attractive and aesthetic black and white colour shade. I think it adds a special aesthetic look to my home.

2. Alkemi Decor Graphical Murals/Posters Pattern 91

I have a thing for skyscrapers. I want to marvel at the sight of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai or gaze at the numerous skyscrapers of New York once. They are the most awesome real-life things made by humans. The Burj Khalifa stands at an astounding 830 meters. That is almost a kilometre. :O

My Home, being at a height, I would like to have a poster stuck on the entire side of one wall. And this poster design beside, kind of looks modern, minimalistic.

3.Aapno Rajasthan Ganapati Kalash and Diya Wood and Clay Wall Decor

 This is a wooden wall hanging Ganesha. Having an idol of Ganesha kind of completes the entire house. It is like an icing on the cake. My present home has around 20 idols of Ganesha in different colours and sizes and models. Not that I'm very religious or something. I just think it sort of completes the home. A finished look, if I may.

I do agree that, what once was defined as one of the three basic necessities of life is also becoming a brand, a subject of aesthetics, luxury etc; People do want to make their homes more attractive, whether or not they actually maintain it in a able-to-live condition.
