5 & a 1/2 Meters of Heaven




From now until................'Kingdom Come', I shall be singing heavenly praise to the wondrous, beauteous, indespensible & iconic Indian Sari. Not solely for the fact that it continues to be  the preferred garment in an everchanging & increasingly cosmopolitan  India, but also because of  its variety, versatility and synonomous connection with the colour & vibrance of the Mother-Land. In terms of sari uses in the home..........well, where does one start and finish? The Maharani simply lives, loves, dreams and breathes the equisite yardage.



The Sequenced 'SARI-CUSHION'


A Palace staple 'Par Excellence'...................
but lets now give devotion to a bit of 'Sari-Heaven', in it's other incarnations..........



The 'SARI-CURTAIN'. Fancy & fabulous,
in any room & in any fabric.



The 'SARI-TURNED-RUNNER'
Covers tables, cabinets,&
 other un-glamorous surfaces.






The 'SARI-FOR-FRILLS-&-THRILLS'
 Maharani's day-bed.



Love is in the billowing detail.


Fallen out of love with an old cupboard or book case ?.............don't fret............a simple white sari can refresh, glamour-fy & add panache. A few antique upholstery tacks, some rudimentary folding & tucking skills & voila!........20 minutes later, you've got yourself an elegant, new & distinctive look.



The 'INSTANT-FACELIFT-SARI'


 Don't hate me for my freshness!






Intricate sari embroidery
 Plainness is not acceptable
in the  Palace!



 Corner of a reinforced, embroidered 'SARI-MAT'


Too pretty to step on, unless wearing your silky socks..........but nonetheless, worthy of a Palace interior....................
Now that we've paid homage (& shall surely return to this topic at a later date) it's time to adorn yourself in a magnificent sari, lay back on your sari-clad, day-bed..........rest upon your soft, sari-cushions and dream of what you'll do, with your next 5 1/2 meters of heaven.



Sari, Sari on the wall......
