Makeover pics

In case you haven't heard, Prismaa online magazine which was launched in April, is having a stylish home contest. So I thought since I was taking pics of the newly painted living and dining areas, I would take some new pics of the house and send them in for what its worth. I need to take new pics anyway...

But for you readers, here are those pics I promised you of the newly painted rooms. This was the color I picked, a sort of brown......the color in the photographs never looks exactly like it is. But then again, I have a very very basic camera and my photography skills are equally basic.....so maybe thats why! And it was a cloudy day so I had to turn on all the lights which gave it more yellowy look...but I do like it.

And in case you haven't read Prismaa, I urge you to do so. Its lovely!

Love the dining table makeover.... the candle stands... and the framed art pieces.. .!! Love the buddha corner...!!!

What are those bowl-like flower holders on the dining table ??

Do send some close up shots of the walls , the buddha corner and the side table in the dining area to prismaa too... !!

Emreen...I am sending close up of all those things you mentioned. I have 60 pics to send them. I just didn't put them up on the blog.

Those bowls are some Indonesian wood bowls I have. I had some empty glass bottles, old spice jars, which are inside them to hold flowers.

I am totally in love with your dining area.Beautiful, inviting colors.very welcoming home:)

Beautiful! Hope you win! What is truly ironic to me is that the two colors I just picked for my arts/crafts room (still being constructed) are the exact same colors as your dining area. Three walls with Behr Pyramid Gold and one accent wall with Terracota kinda color. Now I am even more happy with the choice of my colors!
