The last week in sunny, tropical Sri Lanka gave me a pleasant surprise. Unlike India, this island country is CLEAN (be it the streets or markets or beaches); it appears that "tidy" is ingrained in the culture of the land.
The elegant colonial buildings (mainly from the Dutch-era) in every street have been immaculately maintained and lends super charm to this quaint country.
I have a few nooks of colonial buildings to share with you readers - of homes, our resort and cafes that we went to. Let me transport you there instantly...
|A grand entrance to an old house-cum-resort|
|A nook with precious collectibles in a Batik artist's home|
|Stylish traditional furniture, and the pattern play of light and shadow|
|White walls, dotted with deep brown furniture and plants|
|Old white, wooden doors with pretty carvings|
|Old musical instruments make a conversation-starter nook|
|A lovely reading nook|
