An artistic home..

Today's home tour features a home filled with beauty, elegance and grace. Subasri Pillai, the homeowner, is an artist and a freelance photographer living in Austin, Texas with her husband and two daughters.
Subasri, describes her decorating style as personal and simple. She says her home is a mix of traditional and ethnic collections ranging from Mexican potteries to Moroccan lamp shades. Most of her Indian antiques are family heirlooms. Other than the Mural painting, all the artwork in the house are made by Subasri and her youngest daughter. Her older daughter pitches in by creating handmade clay pots and vases. The custom wall colors, and the terracotta tiles in the entry way are her husband's contribution.

The warm tones, elegant interiors and artistic touches through out this home take my breath away.
Its obvious that this is an extremely talented family and their home brilliantly showcases their creativity.

I am in awe of Subasri's lovely home and it was tough to pick just a few pictures of her home. My favorite corner is the one with the tabla and the flowers. Subasri carefully packed the tabla and carried it to the US all the way from India. The green and pink hues in her daughter's room are simply gorgeous. The morning sun streaming into her lovely and very neat kitchen.

Artifacts and family heirlooms from India.

The stunning orange wall and the white mantlepiece adds drama and style to her living room.

Her daughter's artwork, a paper lamp......a lovely sight. Thank you Sri for sharing your beautiful home with My Dream Canvas.
