Divya Vijay's Home in Ranchi

Friday, March 19, 2010

Every once in a while I get a mail from a reader with a beautiful home and when I saw Divya Vijay Ramanan's beautiful home in Ranchi I knew I wanted to share it with all of you. What caught my eye was how harmoniously everything came together in this home & ofcourse the beautiful Krishna Tanjore painting. In Divy'a own words, "I am not sure whether you have seen any Army home- I should have actually sent you a "before" picture too:-) To put it mildly, it was quite sad, but we have tried to beautify it as much as we could! The lights and carpets are to camoflauge the walls and floors :-)" I did ask if she had before pictures, but no such luck :)
The lights throw a glow across the walls, it is interesting that Divya has placed the lamps below the table and not above. The shelves on either side hold her extensive silver collection.
The gold embroidered cushions are from a boutique in Calcutta & the painting is from Divya's moms home town, Tanjore.
"I searched and searched for a carpet (beige, plain and sober) and finally found this one in an exhibition in Ranchi." - Divya
"All the furniture is from an antique sheesham furniture shop in Bikaner, Rajasthan. My husband Vijay picked up all of them when he was there on work."
"Our shot-glass collection are from wherever we have been to or lived -US, Europe, Far East and Africa. Blue and white tea-coasters are from Amsterdam. Ganesha from Bangalore and the tibetan bells are from Leh"
If you have any queries about Divya's home, do leave a comment & she will answer it.
