To India with Love

Dear India, thank you for the inspiration you bring me, for your exquisite colours & patterns, and incredible architecture. Please can I come and stay with you soon?

Thanks also to Lindi Kingi for alerting me to the blog 'hope this lasts', which inspired this blog posting. It's Sydney based author, Aubrey Daquinag, has recently returned from a trip to India, and her beautiful photographs and poetic writing has given me an overwhelming urge to catch the next plane to India and experience the beauty for myself.

Were it not for my motherly duties, and lack of funds I would definitely be winging my way there right now. In the meantime I will have to make-do with these beautiful images. The first one below is what I will be putting up on my hot pink chalk board wall in my kitchen.

So you can see why I love bone inlay furniture - it's my little piece of India here at home (and could be in your home too!).


  1. Oh I've never been and I would so love to. The colours all look so fabulous and all those fabrics! Now I know why people tell you to do all that travel before kids...maybe in another 10 years. I love the elephant on your bone 7 year old would probably pinch it! Annie x.

  2. Oh the textiles would probably overwhelm colour and pattern junkies like you and I Vic! It would be a fabulous place to visit :)

  3. Ah lovely India! It is most definitely food for the designer’s soul! These pictures have brightened up my grey start to Monday!

  4. Dear Vic,

    I'm very pleased to find your blog. I simply love everything you post here. I'm from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and I'm also mother and designer just like you. Thank you for this blog!

    Best regards,
    Renata Aguiar.

  5. You know I love you inlaid pieces AND the fact that you offer items as big as a table and as small as a tray (something for everyone)
    PS Happy Birthday Cush & Nooks- and wishing you continued success!


It's lovely to hear from you. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Vic xxx
