AAURAAS COUNTRY HOME LOOK

There is something undeniably charming about the rustic look you find in old farm houses, but bringing the same look into your houses is much simpler than buying a country home.  

Country homes evoke feelings of a slower pace of life and a bygone era where the home was a safehaven, where all were welcome, whether you were passing through, or stopping for a while. It’s all about creating memories that will last for generations to come.

Country decorating is all about comfort. It is about creating a warm, inviting space for people to come into and feel immediately at ease. It is not a show house. It is not a house where people will fear where they put their feet or what they touch.Outdoor Kitchen towel

Hospitality takes on a genuine charm when you let country farmhouse décor style take hold at your house with its white woods, distressed finishes and down home appeal. Whether you prefer the sophisticated elegance of a French country look or the appeal of Americana farm life, this design choice has some key must-haves that once you have them in place, you can easily achieve the look.

Outdoor Kitchen towelsEuropean elegance meets rustic country and old-world character to achieve the graceful and inviting style of country French decorating. Striking the perfect balance of beauty and comfort, country French style easily fits into elegant homes and country houses alike.

Beautiful fabrics and provincial patterns are hallmarks of country French style. To balance today’s hectic lifestyles, softer colors and more delicate patterns have become popular choices. Pretty fringes, decorative trims, and lacy accents add an elegant finish.

French country style has a warm, comfortable feeling.

The Italian country style is more than just decorating, it is a way of living. It is a timeless look based on fairly neutral, earthy background colors of red terracottas and sunny ochers.

The elegance and grace come from the level of detail on how the soft furnishings, upholstery and curtains are treated with piping, tassels, tie-backs and fringes.

The charm is in the way the French are able to mix various textures and fabrics so that they look both invitingly warm and sophisticated at the same time.A modern rustic country home mixes rustic with sophistication. Whatever you choose within this style, a rustic home is a celebration of the abundance of nature.

If ever there was a kitchen decorating style meant to feel more warm and welcoming, the country kitchen is it. As you embark on bringing this distinctive look to your kitchen, you need only aim at one thing: making everyone feel welcome, of the unpretentious country kitchen.

Rustic country home decor is more about bringing the outside, inside.

 

AN INTRODUCTION TO OUTDOOR HOME TEXTILES BY AAURAA INTERNATIONAL

Have you ever made a New Year’s resolution to redecorate your outdoor living area?

Perhaps it’s looking a little tired and you might be thinking of  sprucing it up, or even redesign the entire thing, but wonder how to or even why to as there is so much noise around outdoor décor in the recent past .

This blog from AAURAA INTERNATIONAL, one of India’s leading manufacturers in table and kitchen linens will show you why it is important to keep your outdoor décor at its best.

One of the biggest trends for the year is being able to transport your usual interior setting to your outdoor space. Coffee tables, pillows, rugs and even the occasional blanket are now more than welcome into your outdoor design!

It is a great opportunity to create a space where you feel comfortable outside yet inside your home. You can create dining areas, lounge area, and play areas, whatever you want. The options are infinite, and so are the inspirations.

Your patio, balcony or lanai can often be overlooked when it comes to design and aesthetics, but these places become ideal areas to relax and entertain as the temperatures warm.

And much like interior design, outdoor living areas have their own set of trends that rise in popularity each year and dictate how we design our spaces.

Outdoor living areas will no longer be used only for the occasional barbeque or afternoon drink on the patio. Instead, they’ll be treated more as an extension or continuation of the house itself as open-air dining are becoming more popular.

Outdoor décor is also significant because it gives an inviting touch. Next time when you throw a party in green, embellished surroundings, the first statement of praise that will come will be from your invitees. The real wonder, magic and pleasure of life created by lawn-related accessories definitely go beyond praise levels too.

With the proper materials, furnishings, recreational features, and landscaping treatments, you can achieve a seamless transition between the interior and exterior spaces of your home and effortlessly impart a sense of comfort and delight to family, friends, and neighbours, as they dine, sport, and socialize on the patio and/or in the courtyard.

These recreational features enrich the time spent outdoors, giving you and your guests fun, competitive pastimes.

The Ethical practices of a business are the key factors in how that business is defined. A business’s reputation impacts its customers, employees, potential for growth and overall success. A business organization that exemplifies integrity in its products, services and actions holds itself up to high Ethical standards.

The days are getting shorter and warm breezes are heading our way. Its summer already and all of us are craving for some beach fun.

Whether you live by the sea or just want to infuse some summer into your home and get the feel of summer vacation in no time by bringing the coastal style to your home with these beautiful home textile ideas.

GO ALL IN

The very word coastal brings to our mind the colours blue and white. It probably wouldn’t be coastal if there was no blue and white. Get the traditional look by playing with blues, whites and coastal motifs. . Blue and white are such versatile colours that can be used over and over without clashing yet creating a chic style story.

 

 

STRIPES AHOY

Nautical is synonymous with stripes. White, blue and red stripes are all that is needed sometimes to get the coastal look. Thick bold stripes, thin stripe , everything work together well to give the perfect coastal look . The secret to getting this look without going overboard is pairing stripes of different scales and styles and limiting the palette.

Blue Coastal Home Textiles

Blue Coastal Home Textiles

BLUES, BLUES AND ALL BLUES

From the radiant aquamarine tones of Caribbean waters to the deep indigo colours of the Pacific, coastal-inspired shades of blue are versatile, calming and elegant.  Create a luxurious serene space by using shades of blue in the upholstery which represent the water, and layering the different patterns, like ikat, floral and striped, gives the room a light-hearted look.

 

SANDY BEIGES

Nautical doesn’t mean that everything has to be blue and white. Although not completely beach themed, beige is a great accent to coastal decor due to its gray undertones and rugged appeal. Give your homes a modern twist with this monochromatic beachy look.

 

BRIGHT AND CHEERFUL

Enhance the natural beauty of your home with sea-themed accents, crisp whites, and splashes of bold colour. Add a hint of teal and turquoise here and there to bring the tranquility of the calm ocean home. A more colourful and playful version of nautical is the use of pastel palettes to your home decor.  Using only teal, soft lilac, lots of white and silver, you can get the coastal look without a single navy stripe or sail boat.

 

Aauraa-home Textile Manufacturers and Womens Empowerment

We are familiar with the argument that investing in the economic empowerment of women drives the growth of their families and the community around. This is because women reinvest 90% of their income in their families and their community.

The legacy of AAURAA INTERNATIONAL and core priority of the company from the day it was founded in 1995 was not just to be the leading home textile manufactures but to empower as many women as possible from their neighbouring locality by training them in textile manufacturing process and providing them with decent livelihood. Our aim is to level the employment field for disadvantaged women by providing bold livelihoods options that enhance women’ economic status, dignity, and decision-making within their families.

We are one of the biggest textile companies in Karur, India where 75% of the staff working are women. We work with underprivileged women from rural background with low levels of income, sparse access to education and health services, limited job security as well as limited land and inheritance rights, lacking in basic amenities and are mostly uneducated.

Female workers hereface obstacles, from balancing work and family to access to financing. These challenges usually stem from a lack of training, professional resources and self-confidence.

We train them, motivate them, teach them to face life and make them financially independent.

A Holistic Approach

We here understand that empowerment is not just training them technically. But true empowerment comes from proper mentoring and teaching life skills. Thus the primary concern of ours is to impart in them the knowledge and understanding that promotes meaningful and informed participation in decision-making at the family, community and higher levels of social administration. This assists rural women and girls to see themselves as active agents of their own learning, as the driving force of an ongoing effort to apply knowledge to improve their own economic and spiritual condition and to contribute to the betterment of their communities.

FOOD AND ACCOMMODATION:

Food and stay are the basics needs of any person. Good food and a happy place can automatically improve any person’s livelihood. We here provide the women under us with a safe and calm atmosphere. The Women stay in the company hostel that is surrounded by luscious nature which gives a calm and serene vibe.

Safety is an important issue when we deal with women, that is why we have provided these women with 24 hour security in their hostels, lest they become preys to antisocial elements and dangers that surround a woman in today’s world.

The hostel and the factory provides hygienic , freshly prepared home cooked style vegetarian food  so that they don’t miss their homes and also get their daily dose of nutrients and proteins.

Mentoring is also a key component of training.An ideal day at Aauraa for these women start with invoking the presence of the almighty as he is the provider of all good things.Followed by an hour of mentoring on basic hygiene,communication, rapport building, life lessons on how to face life, ethics, and various other life trainings.

These women are given a proper government certified training on home textile manufacturing for three months with an incentive and  once they are qualified they are then promoted to various departments and are motivated and given individual responsibilities and made to grow professionally .

We also provide them with a workplace-based women’s health program to provide them with general and reproductive health education, as well as strengthen the workplace to better manage and support women’s health.

The health program comprises of regular free health check-ups, eye check-ups and doctor routines, making sure they don’t lack in any aspect dealing with their health as it concerns.

We also provide loans and other monetary helps in case of emergencies or during festivities.

Finally to conclude , Empowering these women by providing loans, training and other resources isn’t just a “feel good” corporate social responsibility (CSR) move for us but rather  an economic opportunity that helps promote the sustainability of local communities.
