This is 3D’s first home tour of the new year and 10th home tour till date.
And today I take y’all to the most populous city of UAE which is shopping haven
and is known for its nightlife, ultra-modern architecture and skyline dotted with skyscrapers. Yes, you guessed it right. Today’s guest is joining us from Dubai and letting us take a peek inside her beautifully done home.
Anamika: Serene, welcoming and stylish!!
When we saw this place we were immediately attracted to the lovely view of the Marina and the sea. Being on the 29th floor, the night views are amazing. Secondly, we have a huge park right under our building which also ensures that our kids get their daily dose of outdoor playtime.
3D: Tell us something about yourself
Anamika: Hi, readers of 3D; I’m Anamika, settled in Dubai with my husband and two cute kids. I’m a mother, a homemaker, a family photographer and food blogger. I love to bake in my free time and also browse through food and decor blogs. So it’s very easy to imagine how I get influenced by the visual media. Anything that’s pleasing to the eyes and smells yummy has a place in my heart and home 🙂
The other side of the living room serves as a dining room. Sleeper wood dining table is quite a statement piece here. Red table runner and candle stand in sap green blend well with the vintage chest at the other end of the dining room. White armoire with glass doors is adding French country cottage charm to the dining room in which Anamika proudly displays her collection of glassware.
Anamika: I can’t really say that I have a particular decorating style since I like to mix things up until it feels right. But I do like a bit of quirky, lots of colours and stuff which has some character. Basically, all that which makes my home unique than the one next door. Else in the age of branded furniture stores, it’s very easy to look alike. Also for me, a home has to have the warmth that welcomes you in..than just some expensive furniture kept together.
The beautiful and colourful vintage pop art buffet table is adding a joyful vibe with its cheerful colours and quirky texts.This buffet table sure is a perfect addition to the dining room to make it look ‘Eclectic Cosy’ and to define Anamika’s unique taste. Below are some beautiful decor accents like grape vine carved wooden frame in a distressed finish to add old world charm and tea glasses and kettle in colour combination of teal and red for a kitschy look.
Anamika: Like they say inspiration is everywhere – books, nature, blogs but above all Pinterest is a source that one can get lost into. So when I got a chance to decorate my new pad, I surely felt excited about it and had hundreds of ideas floating in my head. The challenge was to simplify the look, to evaluate it practically and to merge the likes of all family members.
Here is what Anamika has to say about statement pieces she and her husband bought for their apartment.
Anamika: One of my favourite corner in the house is the swing corner in my living room where I love to relax with a book and tea and enjoy the lovely view outside.
Anamika: Always go with what you like than what the trend is, or what decor experts say. After all, home is your space; so simply surround yourself with your favourite things and you would have a home you love.
We just love having you on 3D Anamika, thank you so much for sharing lovely images of your abode with us. 3D wishes you all the very best for your future endeavours. Happy decorating!!
