Home Tour: Anushikha Dwivedi

I have featured so many home tours here on my beloved blog 3D 
but never got a chance to meet all those wonderful home owners and lovely friends. But this time around the thing is different. I got an opportunity to meet the beautiful, charming, cheerful, vivacious, confident and a very warm person Anushikha Dwivedi who's been living just 4 KMs away from my place and I was not aware until she sent me some images of her gorgeous home after watching Rashmi Chandra's home tour on my YouTube channel. And let me tell you after meeting her I realized how true is the quote that "Your home is a reflection of where your heart is even when you are not there, There is an aura when you step into someone's home that can not be described." Dear folks, I bring to you the video tour of Anushikha's gorgeous, stunning, vibrant and happy place. Watch the video below. I really hope y'all like it!!


Anushikha loves to collect artifacts from various sources like art and craft fair/exhibitions, flea markets, handicraft stores &  from the places she visits. She loves to surround herself with the things she loves. If you love the artifacts you see in the above video and images in this blog then you can contact Anushikha as she runs an online business Anuvik that specializes in quirky & unique home decor items.


Anuvik (Anu+Vik) is founded by Anushikha & her husband Vikram. They both are passionate about arts & crafts. With the encouragement of their parents, friends & relatives they decided to combine their love for decorating and crafting into an online business. They went ahead with home decor items because nothing for them is more stimulating and inspiring than a lovely home. Some of the decor items are designed by creative artisans. Dreamy wall art, gorgeous votive holders, dhokra art, tribal musicians, chanderi silk curtains, ceramic spice jars & racks, anything that can spruce up your home a little bit.

The philosophy that Anushikha follows is "If you buy stuff you love, regardless of era and price. Your home will be a true reflection of you!!!"
Let's begin the tour. Below is the entryway to Anushikha's home that sets the tone for the rest of the home. Though you can see a burst of colors everywhere in the home but yellow, teal, fuchsia and peach play a major role in tying up the things together.

Below is the seating arrangement in her living room. Warm, cozy and so vibrant. All the decor accents collected from different sources over the years are displayed tastefully in every nook and corner of her home.

The other wall in the living room is painted in bright yellow and Anushikha has created a gallery wall to display artworks she bought from exhibitions, from differently abled kids and she also put up a photograph of Mumma bird feeding her babies clicked by her husband Vikram who just loves photography. 


A closer look at the seating arrangement in this area and I am completely in love with it.

Foyer Makeover On A Budget

The foyer is the first place that guests see when they enter into a home. It is the first place that creates a lasting impression so it should be warm and welcoming. It should be a place with personality and functionality. That's what I did in recent foyer makeover project. Check out the video below to see all the steps involved in this makeover. 


Here is a before and after picture for you all. Though I liked the previous look too but there was no light and nothing no space to toss the keys and other stuff. Also, I got bored of the same look hence this makeover!! Let me tell you this foyer makeover didn't burn a hole in my pocket but the look and feel of entryway have changed entirely.

  Before                                                 After
Foyer Makeover On Budget

When I undertake any makeover project first I pay attention to the functionality of the space and then lighting and accessorizing. In this particular makeover, I changed the paint on the wall, Instead of artwork or mirror, I created clay work that is kind of permanent (until I decide to do makeover again) and to put some random stuff and decor accents I installed a beautifully carved wooden wall shelf. 
The total cost of this makeover is given in above video with the cost breakdown and all the links to buy products that I used in this makeover. 
Wall shelf can now serve as a center stage where I can display various decor accents and can change the look of this space effortlessly. Here are some more images to prove my point.

Foyer Makeover on budget

I chose glowing rust color for the wall. Bodhi tree or call it a tree of life has been created using air drying clay and tiny mirrors are serving as leaves. Turquoise Buddha bust pops beautifully against glowing rust wall and greens just add the cheer here. 


I am happy with the end result and really looking forward to knowing what do you all feel about this makeover. 
There will be a talented guest on 3D in my next blog so stay tuned!!

Wall Stories: Guest Blog By Bharti Niroula

Our "Wall Stories" series has been inspiring a lot of people and I have been receiving wonderful messages every now and then which I want to pass on to all those wonderful, creative and talented ladies who were, are and will be a part of this series. Let's have a big round of applause for all the contributors who sent me the images of their beautiful walls, inspired thousands of people and made this series a huge success!

Wall Decor

Our earlier blogs on 'Traditional Wall Decor', 'Contemporary & Eclectic Wall Decor' and 'Wall Of Masks' have become so bulky that it is a hassle to add more images in those blogs so I decided that I'll be publishing a separate blog for this series from now onwards if I receive more images from contributors. So today we have a guest with us all the way from Kuwait who will be sharing gorgeous images of beautifully done up walls and she will tell us how she did it all.

Wall Decor

First of all, let me introduce myself to you all. My name is Bharti NiroulaI have been living in Kuwait for 14 years. I have one son and two dogs. Basically, I am from Chandigarh.
I loved Design Decor & Disha...very inspiring. Every time I read your wall stories it fills my heart.

Her love for plates and masks is quite evident. I loved the eclectic style that Bharti has managed to create by putting the plates on the wall and balancing the look with the antique brass items on the shelf. Not to mention the pop of turquoise and pink is adding to the charm of the place. 

Wall Decor

This many faces wall in my living room that I recently updated.Most of the stuff is bought during my travels. It's really nice to have a few of my favorites out on the wall where I can enjoy them everyday. But my Mother has a problem with the nails everywhere, after hanging the art she is OKAY.

In the below picture, Bharti has proven that mixing and matching if done wisely can never disappoint you. Paintings, plates, masks and a hanging from different places are creating such a wonderful display of memories. Paintings of alleys are so hypnotising that can easily transport you to some another world. I am wondering how different elements from different places can create a perfect display and yet look so belonged to the place.

Wall Decor

Ever since I built my home in 2016 I’ve fallen more and more in love with home decor and styling. I find it to be such a great way to practice creativity and to make my house feel unique and comfortable to live in. Decorating my home is something I love, I don’t spend lots of time doing and redoing my rooms, just for the sake of reaching design perfection. For me, it has to be a labor of love, not an obsession. That is why I pace myself. I want my home to be truly inspired by our life, and that authenticity tends to come with time, layer by layer.

So this was it from my side. I hope you enjoyed this guest blog and found some inspirations too. I have embedded the link to Bharti's Instagram account in her name where she introduced herself. Please don't forget to check out!!
Thank you Bharti for sharing eye candy images of your walls. We loved having you on 3D.

I am doing a wall makeover so y'all please keep watching this space, I'll see you soon!!

Hello Decor Enthusiasts!! 
Sometimes my decor thirsty soul craves so much to get a peek inside beautifully done up homes all around the world that I just Google and spend a considerable amount of time admiring all the efforts that home owners put in transforming a house into a home. Yes, I admit that I love to peek inside homes just to get a glimpse of "whats new here". I have been sharing Home Tours on my blog since past four years and I know you all love seeing the images of well-decorated homes. But what if I give you too the opportunity to peek inside beautiful homes!!!! Yes, I am talking about Video Home Tours. Today I am posting the first video home tour and now you can walk with the home owners as they take you through their homes.

Video Home Tour


Links to buy home decor accessories that you see in this beautiful home have been embedded in their names in this blog and if you watch the video on YouTube then links can be found in the description box. 

Indian Home Decor

Today I am taking y'all to Gurugram(Gurgaon) to take a video tour of an elegant and pretty home of Rashmi and Manoj Chandra. I acquainted with Rashmi on Instagram as she used to tag me on stunningly beautiful images of her home that she shares everyday (thanks to her) and I knew that Rashmi has those creative skills that one needs to transform any dull space into a zippy and eye-pleasing one.
Below is the entrance to her beautiful apartment where Rashmi and her husband create memories with their two children, a daughter who's recently got a job in Bangalore and a teenage boy who studies in 11th grade. A glimpse of the entrance and you already know what to expect next.


Indian Home Decor

Below is the foyer where guests take a pause after entering the home and feel enveloped in the warmth of this space decorated by Rashmi. Hanging glass lanterns and a little glass lamp emanate warmth. Angels from Thailand are there to welcome guests. Jharokha and Brass Ganesha lamp on the other wall add an ethnic element to the decor. 

Indian Home Decor

Below is the closer shot for you to see the beautiful vignette. Rashmi shares some lovely memories with us, "When I was a kid I used to help my mom in decorating home and rearranging the furniture to make the place look more appealing. When I got married and we bought our own home, I realised the passion for home decor. My friends and relatives always say something nice whenever they visit us and those words of appreciation encourage me a lot.

Indian Home Decor


Below is the image of her living room that speaks a lot about the home owner, charming, elegant, warm and serene. Walls and furniture in subtle colors set the perfect background for the beautiful home accessories that Rashmi uses to add a pop of color. Glass candle holders and crystal flower vase on the coffee table add the touch of elegance and table runner adds the pop of red. Buddha cushions are beautifully complementing the Buddha figurine placed on the side table accompanied by a beautiful elephant lamp.  

Indian Home Decor

The gurgling sound of the water from the Lord Buddha water fountain kept in one of the corners in the living room makes the ambience so calming that one can sit and listen to the sound for a long time. Next to which are aesthetically hung these beautiful brass lotus hanging diyas. These brass lamps are show stoppers and create such a serene atmosphere. You can experience the sense of calm in the video if you watch this on YouTube. 

Indian Home Decor

Below is the dining room where the furniture in dark wood creates a statement. Rashmi loves to decorate and she admits that "Everyone loves their home but for me, my home is my lifeline. I'm so involved in it that often I forget to have food when I am cleaning and decorating my home."

At one end of the crockery cabinet is placed this marble temple to create a small pooja space. Her collection of brass knick-knacks is displayed on the beautiful wooden and wrought iron floating wall shelf

Indian Home Decor

Next to this is Rashmi's neat and clean kitchen. She loves clean edges. The functionality plays a major role in this space. Tinted glass bottles add a splash of color to make the space more interesting. 

Indian Home Decor

Rashmi loves to keep her space spick and span all the time and that's how she loves to spend her time. Her hard work is evident here. 

Indian Home Decor

She keeps rotating the decor. Paintings, decor accessories and furnishings in one room find a place in another room after every few weeks or months. This practice makes her home look new and fresh without even spending a penny. 

Indian Home Decor

Now let's head to the master bedroom. This is where Rashmi spends a lot of time. here is what she says about this room "I opted for subtle colors so that I feel calm and flowers are my weakness. I often buy them, they make me happy. Rajnigandha and white lilies are my favourites. Their intoxicating aroma fills the space to make the ambience more magical and serene." 

Indian Home Decor

Before you enter the room this beautiful vignette on the cabinet warms the heart.

Here is Rashmi's neat, tidy and beautiful bedroom.

With some paintings in dark tone that complements the furniture, she creates a cohesive look.

You can see these curtains swaying in the video and can sense the gentle touch of breeze. This room is airy and well-lit, that's how it should be.

Here is the family room where all the family members sit and chat together for long.

Here is the seating space where she loves to play with colors and textures. She keeps changing the cushion covers and linen to change the entire look. In below picture, it looks so vibrant and lively with all those reds and teal.

Now in this below picture, the same space transforms into a serene place with the use of whites and a dash of warm color.

Here is another view of the same space. 

Indian Home Decor

Kids' room is a simple and uncluttered space. Her kids didn't want to place anything on the bed headboard so it has been kept clear. All the achievements of the kids are proudly displayed on the ladder shelf. 

Indian Home Decor

Though Rashmi did add her touch here by hanging some beautiful string lights and a dream catcher above the headboard. 

Indian Home Decor

So we have seen all the nooks and corners of Rashmi's beautifully done up home. I hope you all enjoyed this home tour as much as you enjoyed all the previous ones. Do let her know your views in the comments and follow her on Instagram for a daily dose of eye candies.
