Hello and welcome to Arty Home! I’m Meera, a self-confessed interiors obsessive who cannot get enough of beautiful, creative spaces. Growing up, my education was focussed on Maths, Business and Science, but after having oodles of fun personalising my first little home during my twenties, I caught the interiors bug and have since embraced crafting, DIY and a creative way of living. I trained in interior design and went on to run an interior design consultancy for a few years before deciding to start a family.
The last few years with my babies have been an incredible rollercoaster, at times tearing my hair out and wondering at my seeming foolishness of giving up everything to be a full-time mother; while at other times bursting my joy and pride at the remarkable little humans I brought into the world and feeling grateful to have this time with them. Looking back, I wouldn’t change any of it. I’ve grown and learned a lot, and the cuddles are everything. Thank goodness for the rise of Pinterest and Instagram which have kept my thirst for creative inspiration satiated and my sanity (just about) intact during this time.
Now that they’re 2 and 4, and slightly less reliant on me 24/7, I’m getting stuck into creative projects again, decorating my home when I get the chance and sharing my projects, inspirations and tips on this blog. I am really proud to have had my first son’s room featured in a magazine, and rather chuffed that one of my DIY projects has gone a bit viral and been featured by Domino and Lonny, among several other websites and blogs. Also very excitingly, one of my projects is soon to be published in a book – I’ll let you know more when it’s out!
