It is often the most eccentric detail that sticks to our memory and leaves an impression that lasts the longest. That feel of a textile or a spell binding color in someone’s home is what I remember people’s homes by. I often find myself referring to people according to their homes as ‘the one with red sofa’ or ‘the one with designer walls’. The latest to this dictionary of mine is ‘the one with beaded curtains. It was such a refreshing site to see these curtains on a single window in one of my colleague’s home.
She had invited us over for a small gathering for lunch and the bright sunshine coming from her kitchen seemed so alluring. I had to ask her ho w come her kitchen was so bright. She told me that it was all due to the curtain made of colorful beads that she had hung on the window. Not only did the beads reflect off the sunshine most perfectly but also added a hue of color to her otherwise routine looking kitchen. I was wonderstruck with how much difference this little detailing had made to her home. I was happier when she told me that it was her teenage daughter’s idea who was excellent at arts and crafts.
