Bridges and staircases fascinate me to no end. And I am on an ever going tour of finding out how to incorporate these two elements in my small home.

Sounds crazy? Isn’t it! It is possible to have elements of staircase in decor at least; but bridges!

While you shake your head and mutter some words related to crazy or disbelief; I want to prove I am not alone in my ‘impossible sounding dream world.’shell2002-mahogani-cast-co.gif

  1. Thank you for the kind reaction to my work… and especially for your approach to them as bridges. The initial intent of the work was evoke the idea of bridge. Don’t hesitate on reacting to more of my work, it’s quite flattering!

  2. Hi Blue,
    so glad to meet you, at least some one is as crazy as I am!!!(ha-ha-ha)

    thanks a ton for such great encouragement!

  3. Hey!
    Loved this. I am a fan of bridges too. Any architectural structure actually. The fact that we can construct anything really, still blows my mind six ways to Sunday.
    Totally in love with your new blog look. You have been renovating!
