MY WORLD - Escape to India

more participants here

There is always the same to show in my world actually, it's all grey and rainy. So I decided to escape to India to find a colorful and welcoming place.

You would never believe it, it's a shop in a very industrial area

an elephant greets me, which is already more exotic than a cow

The first thing you see inside is a fountain with lots of green plants, banks and seats around.

a warm and zen atmosphere surrounds you

Behind this curtain is a bedroom

nicely displayed

a writing corner and a buddha watching

here behind are lots of ornaments desplayed

carpets and cushions

Jewelry and textiles.

After a visit to this beautiful shop, which doesn't give you the feeling to be in a shop, I always feel better.

I, too, would love browsing in such a shop with so many interesting things to see.

A little bit of paradise in gloomy winter. You have done well to find it. It doesn't look like a shop.

Such a lovely, colorful place -- certainly more so than it is in Seattle this week, that's for sure! Great captures as always, Gattina! Hope the rest of your week goes well! Stay warm!

Beautiful shop to browse through and a delightful place to spend time in. I love the colour and the brightness of it!

I like the colors, and I'm sure it was sweetly smelly too!!
