Exotic Secret Gardens

I love outdoor spaces.. and more so.. making them into a private oasis .. a place to escape to... here are a few of my favourite ideas that I have collected over time...


I love the use of blinds to create a more intimate space.. for a quiet dinner... or to read a book ...


love the use of the mirror here to reflect the greenery and of course make the space look bigger..


I have always loved hanging lanterns and candles.. and they really spiff up any space..

anyone who knows me...knows I love the romance of canopies....


View of our tiny patio in Lahore... not a good pic...but you get the idea..

Dining Table Settings

Since this is the season everyone loves to entertain...actually we love to entertain all year round...thought it may be good to have dining table setting ideas to share with you


lovely spring colours mirrored in the foliage on the table


Though the above image is beautiful I would use it as inspiration but be careful of flower decorations that are too high on the table as we all know how annoying that is for conversations...


A great way to spruce up a table is by using shiny sparklies in goblets around the table...

If you ever wondered where to place everything for a formal dinner...


this is one example.. and the setting that I am most familiar with...some cultures do it slightly differently..just depends where you come from...
