Best of 2016: You’ll Love These 5 Jaw-Dropping Homes from Architectural Digest

Sometimes you take a liking to a particular magazine, website, tune that you keep flipping/playing it over and over again. There is no formula to decipher this fondness; it just clicks and stays in the head space for days, sometimes weeks. That’s how it is with AD for me now.



Furdo: review

I have been reviewing every service provider that we have worked with over the course of moving into our new home. This one has been long pending.

Circa 2015.

One lazy Sunday afternoon in July.

Someone sent me the link to Furdo. First reactions: the concept was novel; the theme names were catchy; designs interesting, and cost reasonable.

Pricing and when did I avail their service?

10 Stunning Rooms from Houzify (Bonus: Curated from real homes)

How is the weather in your part of the world? The days are sunny and the nights are cold, here in Bangalore. My son is under the weather for the past three days. So post lunch, we pulled ourselves to the terrace to soak in the winter sun while I passed on some TLC to the plants, and he started feeling much better. Nothing beats…



The Story of a Customized Bookshelf

This is not a sponsored post.

If there is one piece in our home that has our signatures stamped in its design, then it has to be the bookshelf. The piece sits majestically in the first floor living. This post is a story of how the bookshelf got crafted.

Where do you go to (my lovely ~~~ too much Peter Sarstedt over the weekend) for interior inspiration?

Blogs? Facebook groups? Or good old magazines?

My favorite go-to place for home tours is the GoodHomes magazine. I have some of the best issues stacked on my coffee table in the living room. It’s been a while since I have…



Kitchen Tour: A ply kitchen where budget meets fancy accessories

We often associate wood as the material for interiors. After a radical introduction of stainless steel as the prime material in our previous kitchen tour, today I take you through its traditional alternative: a ply kitchen that is budget-friendly without compromising on accessories. This is also executed by CapriCoast. Just like the previous post, all frequently asked questions are addressed in this post: how…



Real steel: How much does a stainless kitchen cost and should you get one? Hint: Well under 5 Lakhs.

Take a wild guess. What is this kitchen made of?

Got ya. You guessed steel for both first and second, didn’t you. The first one is made of wood, and the second one of steel. But, you couldn’t tell the difference. Could you?

As you tour new homes, how often have…
