Home Tour: Manisha and Ajay’s Colorful Haven Featured in GoodHomes

Where do you go to (my lovely ~~~ too much Peter Sarstedt over the weekend) for interior inspiration?

Blogs? Facebook groups? Or good old magazines?

My favorite go-to place for home tours is the GoodHomes magazine. I have some of the best issues stacked on my coffee table in the living room. It’s been a while since I have featured some of the bright homes from GoodHomes.

First, it is Manisha Vinod and Ajay Raghavan’s home. Calling this a colorful home would be an understatement. This home is bold, bright, cheerful, and as the article rightly puts it, it takes us back to our childhood of fairy tale living.

There’s chaos; there’s splashes of color; order goes to the wind; that’s what makes this room a delight.

Characters and fables come alive in this room. May be a bit too much to calm the mind at times for someone like me.

Orange and yellow with a hint of blue: my favorite combination.

How to get this look: hang a distressed old window, paint part of the wall in chalkboard paint, and go bold on complementing colors  like teal and fuchsia for the walls.

Can a bedroom get more colorful than this?

I saved the best for last, and here it comes. Love the quote on the blue brick wall.
