Painting My Home Canvas
Change is the only constant in our life.
A natural part of growing up is the change in our likes and dislikes.
The perception of our home, and the room we call our own,
Like our personality, changes with time.
So, when I was a little girl, I wished that stars would come to my room,
And bring down with them the charming moon.
They should all stick on to my ceiling
Till I got the drowsy feeling
and drifted off to sleep.
Then, in my teens, I had the urge to prove that I am one of a kind
Tidying, I thought, was a waste of time.
I wanted my things strewn all around my room.
So, I needed a big cupboard with a shutter, to hide all the clutter,
Till my mom demanded cleaning with a broom.
When I was a young girl, I moved from Delhi to Mumbai,
My dreams had grown taller, the space though was smaller
I frantically shopped for things that could fit and fold.
Or wardrobes that could hold – Clothes, books, cds, and all other stuff.
Many of those things had to go into the box of the bed;
Pulling them out was something I would dread.
Now, in my middle age, I look for style, comfort and grace.
Everything needs to be prim and in proper place,
For an elegant unfettered look, with a feel of space.
Blending occidental and oriental look and feel.
With a wall in each room in a contrasting texture and shade that reflects fine taste
And displays paintings and works of art, to cheer the soul and bring joy to the heart.
Wall mounted TV for watching the cable, comfortable seating along with side tables.
Home is where heArt is, so placeholders for artifacts are a must;
That are easy to maintain, and do not gather much dust.
A minimalist and yet a bright look to complement the brightness of the garden outside, is what I envisage.
Door skins to go with designs on the walls, and wooden textured cupboards with knobs of brass.
All that I have summed up so far, completes the picture of my #HomeCanvas
