I was just 3 years old when I moved into this house with my grandparents, parents, and my dog. The ‘house’ is what we call the brick structure but a home is what my mother has made out of it.

From the colours of the walls to the curtains that adorn them. The Kashmiri silk carpets, the antique mirrors, traditional craved furniture and the fireplace that lends our home the warmth are all the efforts of my mother.

Today, 20 years later I realize how much she has relentlessly given to make our home.
I’ve always wanted to gift her something she loves but have never found anything that perfectly matches her love for traditional Indian décor. Finally I found Indiavaale and picked the following gifts for her:

The Ethnic Lamp, is an antique in perfect sync with hertraditional carved bed. Her habit of reading every night before she sleeps while my father is already somewhere in the middle of his dreams only reinforces my desire to gift it to her.

I’d also gift her the beautiful Red Ikat Cushion because I know that’s her favourite colour and matches the furnishings she has chosen for the drawing room.

The coaster set reminds me of all the times she has stopped us from keeping our glasses of water on wooden tops and I’d give it to her with a note promising her not to do it ever again.

Finally, I’d gift her the Touch of Pink Potli which would look gorgeous and even more graceful in her wrist.
