It’s a long weekend for many here in Bangalore for Pongal/Sankranti. If you are longing to get out of the city for a getaway or some time spent in the wilderness, then The Serai may just be the place from what the pictures tell me. ¬†With three resorts in Kabini, Bandipur and Chikmaglur based on where you tastes lie: in the coffee country, by the waterfront or amidst wilderness, all of them are perfect for a three-day weekend. I would love to go someday.

But, when I saw the pictures my interests took me off a tangent to the decor – the way the rooms were tastefully decked up, and I’ve learnt a thing or two from each one of them.

I often wonder if you can go overboard by overdoing one element in a room. But, after looking at the picture below, I’m thinking no, if you cleverly balance it with accessories. Is there any such thing as too much wood?

I love animal prints – especially zebra prints. So I oozed over this picture when I saw it being used as a furnishing so effortlessly. And, I LOVED the headboard in the second picture.

Have a great weekend! See you Monday!

  1. wow.. the wooden panels look lovely.. If you know to use all the elements in correct proportion and the colour colours.. then there is no such thing as too much.. Saying that.. I’m not so sure I’d be able to live in a room like that.. But thats a personal choice now.. Isn’t it..

    Oh.. Happy New Year to you.. Hope you had a lovely start to the year..

    Well said, Patty. Yes, me neither. But, I was happy to see how the designer had no inhibitions about going all out – more in tune with the surroundings and wood-rich neighborhood!

    Happy New year to you too :)
