Interiors, Over a cup of tea.. (Online Journal) / Saturday, April 5th, 2014
Chaikhana/ Home Office/ Collectivitea

Taking photographs and blogging takes on an even more wonderful quality on Saturdays. There is nowhere else that I have to be, and nothing else that I have to be doing. Everyone becomes their better, more creative self on Saturdays, don’t you think? So, today I was inspired by the changing light in our ‘chaikhana to take pictures. The word  ‘chaikhana’ refers to a tea house, and given that tea time is a very special time in our household, we designated our favorite part of the house, the formal dining room, as a chaikhana. We just grouped chairs, layered them with vintage tapestries and voila, a boho den! We hang around here, read, listen to music, spend endless hours talking or playing with the kids.  I took over a corner of the chaikhana, put a desk there and made it my blog headquarters. All I need is my laptop, some cherished pictures and objets d’art, some flowers and lots and lots of creamy light mixed with green shadows thrown by the plum and apple trees outside my window.
