Through a mirror darkly

  "'But was Narcissus beautiful?' said the pool. 'Who should know that better than you?' answered the Oreads. 'Usdid he ever pass by, but you he sought for, and would lie on yourbanks and look down at you, and in the mirror of your waters hewould mirror his own beauty.' And the pool answered, 'But I loved Narcissus because, as he lay onmy banks and looked down at me, in the mirror of his eyes I sawever my own beauty mirrored.'"  Such has been the power of mirrors since history has been recorded. There has probably never been a more consistent...

Travel Thursdays - Belgium beyond the waffles

There are those who create and then there are those who know perfectly well how to use what has been created. While France, Italy and England have created some of the most classic decor looks over the centuries, Belgium, Holland, Sweden, Austria & Russia have perfected the art of knowing how to use those decor concepts in harmony and create stunningly perfect interiors.   Everyone has a different reason to travel and every trip has a different motive. Sometimes, you might want to just retreat and refresh or there are times when you like to get inspired.  I had been to...

Our home feature in Better Homes & Gardens

To say that this year has started on a good note is an understatement. Sometimes, things happen faster than you can pause to comprehend them. And when the day is done and gone, you smile.  I'm so happy that our home was featured in the January Edition of Better Homes & Gardens. We couldn't have been more ecstatic when they contacted us, while we were in Maldives.

A Dream of an October

For a very rare exception, October became my favorite month of the year. And why not, Parrot & Lily was part of two very prestigious events back to back. I had to postpone my vacation and move my Diwali card party twice but life is quite sorted when you have good friends.  Apart from classic furniture & decor, my interests are quite concentrated. I love my daughter, can never get enough family travel, and it would be an understatement to say that I love the magic of wine. In fact, a lot of our travel is centered toward wine regions....
