Blue the Sky,

Blue the Water

& so is my city


Enter this city famously known for its forts ( Mehrangarh ) , palaces ( Umaid Bhawan Palace ) , temples and off course food ( Pyaz ki Kachori , MIRCHI BADA ) which finds its name on must visit list of Every Global and Indian Travel Guide & Expert .This place which I proudly call as my HOMETOWN with gives me a Unique Identity of being called MARWARI (It was formerly a princely state known as Marwar ) .

Apart from various characteristics of Jodhpur , One mystery which still remain unresolved as why Majority of Houses around old city area near Mehrangarh Fort are painted BLUE … One logic is to distinguish themselves Houses Occupied by Upper caste Brahmin’s were painted Blue and gradually everyone followed the trend . Some says that to naturally keep termites and insects away, Copper sulphate was added to standard whitewash. Whatever the reason is, this shade of blue is loved and captured beautifully by world renewed photographers in their portraits capturing the essence of this city.

With growing options and change in lifestyle, upcoming generations are exploring various textures and colors on their homes to create signature look. But, I wish to keep the heritage alive of this city and still want to explore shades of Blue which can add a thematic ambiance in my home woven around multiple shades with base color as BLUE. To help in this quest, BED BATH & MORE
came very handy.

This website follows new age mantra to provide hand pickets Idea’s , Services , Inspiration and Product to Re-furbish home of our dreams sitting right on our couch. To mark the start of long festival season, first long lead item everyone looks to take care of is PAINTING of House and I was bitten by the same bug. So ” BLUE ” was on mind , but what and where to go next is unknown as local painters or dealers doesn’t seems to understand my vision of home . So, I headed to BED, Bath and More and first thing which stuck with me was theme “GRECIAN BLUE “.

Among the available shades under this theme, I picked PEACEFUL BLUE
“and there it was a virtual tour of how this look in various section of my house. As a family, we get the option to check and pick the shade and even design our own theme. After much discussion, I was allowed ….YES gracefully allowed by my Wife and kid to pick the tone for DINNING SPACE and BATHROOM. As strange as it seems but My Creativity stand highest sitting on HOT Seat and my first love is and will always be FOOD.

Ye Tera Ghar Ye Mera Ghar Kisi Ko Dekhna Ho Gar

Yahan Mahak Wafaaon Ki Mohabbaton Ka Rang Hai
Ye Ghar Tumhara Khwaab Hai Ye Ghar Meri Umang Hai !!

Na Aarzoo Pe Qaid Hai Na Hausle pe Jung Hai
Hamaare Hauslon Ka Ghar Hamaari Himmaton Ka Ghar !!!

Ye Tera Ghar Ye Mera Ghar Ye Ghar Bahut Haseen Hai

Ye Tera Ghar…
