The apartment complex organizers had clearly told people to get organic colours or colours made at home.
A few ideas on how to make colours at home -
Wet colors : soak & then boil beetroot or onion peels or any flower petals in water.
Dry colors : mix sandal wood or turmeric or henna powder with flour or arrowroot powder or corn starch.
Apart from this I reorganized and refreshed some decor. At the entrance to my apartment is this wooden seating area which also houses cabinets below for storage. I decided to brighten up that much neglected corner. A green plant, some colourful, slightly blingy (I love bling in small quantities) cushions and it became a comfy spot to sit and have a cup of coffee while reading a book.
In case you are wondering where these lovely cushion covers are from - they are from The Red River.
I love traditional Indian motifs like the golden one on this purple cushion and I also like to mix it up with something non traditional like these striped cushions.
The handmade cloth coaster is also from The Red River.
You can find out more about The Red River at their Facebook page, their website or their blog.
