Tell me your design mantra, I'll tell you your bling mantra!

What's your design mantra? Not the first time you've been asked that, and I guarantee it won't be the last time. I think by now people know mine.....

We all have our distinct likes and dislikes when it comes to design and decor. Some folks like a clean minimalist look, some like lots of stuff around them, some like big bold chunky accessories, some like small knick knacky things (Ma.......are you reading this? :-)), some like traditional Indian, some like uber modern Western!

But does your taste in decor extend beyond interiors to your clothing and jewelry? Most likely it does, whether it happens unknowingly or consciously (I suspect the former). If you like ethnic tribal folksy touches in your home, chances are you like the same in clothing and bling bling. If you like sophisticated opulent interiors, I bet you like diamonds and rubies!

So here are some room interiors I clubbed together with jewelry that goes with it. A silly extremely time consuming exercise I indulged in yesterday......! Tell me, which one most personifies you? As for me....hmmm..take a guess! (Click on the smaller pics to view better as larger pics)








Like me, you are probably a combination of 2 or more. Its really rare for someone to get pigeon holed into any one category. That was fun!
All room images via, most jewelry via and other internet sources (which I absentmindedly forgot to jot down)
