Home Tour: Kapila & Sonal Banerjee Part-I

It's been quite a long that I posted here on my blog and you all probably know why! Because I'm focusing more on my Youtube channel as people prefer to watch the videos rather than reading a complete blog and I too found this medium more powerful to convey a message and it also presents quick and rich content. But that doesn't mean I'll discontinue blogging. Well, that isn't gonna happen:) and that's why here I am with a lovely post!! 
Today once again I bring to you the home tour of Kapila Banerjee that you must have seen earlier on my blog and on my YT channel (In case you want to watch it on YouTube then Click Here) but since a lot of you wanted to pin the images so here it is, the Part-I of Kapila & Sonal Banerjee's home. Happy pinning!! Also, now you can shop the home decor products that you see in this post, I have added the link below every image.
Let's start from the entrance to her home which is as impressive as the rest of the home. Kapila has created a space to keep some decor accents by putting up a beautiful wall shelf. On the shelf are cute tiny pots that add dimension to an otherwise plain and dull wall. I just love how decor accessories in different geometric shapes are complimenting each other and all the colors making the entrance so full of energy.

The moment you enter the home you can feel the warmth and the positivity that envelops you and you find yourself soaking in the beauty of Kapila's home. Accent wall in tangerine color sets the perfect backdrop for all the carved wooden pieces in dark tone. Wooden masks are from Kenya, Africa where Kapila has lived for four years. Antique wooden pillars are restored from an eighty-year-old home and only a keen eye like Kapila's can give such pieces their righteous place. Next to these pillars are quite an unusual pair of candlestands flanking the console. Console is adorned with brass knick-knacks to add Indianness. You should watch the video to see all the minute details on these carved wooden pieces. Ornate mirror above the console completes the setup and makes the foyer a warm and welcoming space.

Here is another picture of the same space from a different angle to show you the intricacy of the carving on wooden pillars and mirror frame.

Step into the living room and you are greeted with this view. An angel picked from their travels and a beautiful brass hanging diya above it make an eye-pleasing display. If you notice the lamp behind Ganesha idol carefully then you will realize how unusual it is. The lamp is actually a unique find made of brass and the lampshade is brass and stained glass. I never saw such lamp before. Kapila's home is full of treasures around the world so your eyes keep wandering and admiring the beauty of every piece. For an instance, the brass chariot right next to the angel is what I really liked a lot.

Keeping the accent color in mind Kapila has beautifully infused tangerine in her living room. Look at the sofa and the painting above it and you know what I am talking about. That's how an accent color helps in pulling the room together. Kapila told me that she keeps changing the cushions according to the season and ocassion.

I clicked so many pictures and there are so many beautiful pieces in Kapila's home that my words wouldn't be adequate to describe the beauty of her home. So I am leaving you with the images.

All the beautiful craved wooden furniture pieces and decor accessories are from Kenya, Africa. Teal Buddha on leaf is again a souvenir her husband picked from his travels. Intricately carved wooden piece that looks like a capsized boat is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

Rather than choosing contemporary style sofa for her living room, Kapila has opted for tradition Indian seating. Rajasthani Chowkies are a work of artistic craftmanship. Fuchsia cushions complement tangerine in living room beautifully.
