Elevating Exterior Décor: Thresholds of Life & Prosperity

The threshold: a space that defines boundaries between the inside and the outside, while simultaneously acting as a space to linger between the two. Regardless of size, the threshold is a place of dynamic equilibrium. A place that houses the secrets of the ‘going and returning’ cycle of various adventures.

A threshold, may be just a strip of wood, metal, or stone that you pass as you step inside a home, or it may be more elaborate, large enough to house short meetings, or provide sanctuary for a short while. Thresholds could be boundary walls, doors, gardens, walkways, stone steps, or just gates and they witness so many activities. If all of life were a piece of music getting played out, then its rhythm would probably be created at the threshold.

The importance of a threshold for a house is evident in the fact that there are gods and goddesses that have presided over it across cultures, be it the Greco-Roman Janus, the Roman Cardea, the Korean Jangseung, or the Hindu Kirtimukha. In some parts of Kerala it is believed that predictions made by the eldest member of a family in a Padippura, the threshold, would come true.

A rhombus, a shape that is symbolic of creation and fertility - the first steps towards prosperity. This is a shape that has been used to adorn sacred structures from cultures the world over, to indicate a space supportive of life. Used in a kite, this shape is symbolic of uplifting moments that can make your spirits soar sky high. An abundance of wealth, both in material and spirit, is the ambience created by soaring kites and kite-like shapes.

Here we share some decorative uses of AVAILABLE MOTIFS a rhombus, a shape that is symbolic of creation and fertility—the first steps towards prosperity.

Concept for Singing Flowers

“My gardens bloom, bloom with flowers. Flowers that sing, sing to the winds…”

The sight of blooming flowers brings joy and lifts the human spirit, and they are the inspiration behind a collection that reflects the traditional Phulkari embroidery art practiced in the northern part of India. The region’s rural areas have a charming tradition.

The women in the family, on the birth of a girl child, start weaving a Phulkari, a shawl embroidered with flowers, and this is given to the girl when she gets married. It is symbolic of the warmth of a mother’s love and the joy and prosperity that flowers bring to an agrarian society. Motifs of blooming flowers can brighten up a threshold and be reminiscent of gardens in full bloom.

Concept for Dancing Waves

“My stalks are ripe, ripe with grains. Grains that dance, dance like waves…”

Ripe stalks of grain swaying merrily in the field are one of the most positive and reassuring sights that anyone can behold. It is one of the first images associated with prosperity. And this association is reinforced in our cultural history with festivals such as Baisakhi, Pongal, and several others all over India, thanking nature for a bountiful harvest.
