Presenting to you…

Terrace and balcony makeover

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this image. I get yours will too if you see how this space looked like before it went under the hammer.

DIY: A Door Makeover in Less Than 10 Minutes

Walls.

Walls.

Walls.

When it comes to dressing up a home, walls take precedence over everything else.  The possibilities are endless for wall as a canvas: a fresh coat of paint with the color of the season, a wall paper, a collage, an over-sized art work, graffiti, doodling on the wall, decal or color blocking.

Doors have always fascinated me. I love doors that are painted yellow, blue – they are…



How to get a sparkling clean bathrooms with one awesome product? No elbow grease.

Gross alert: there’s a lot of stomach-churning description in this post. So, in jest, please be warned that this is not for the faint-hearted. 

Strands of hair. Ewwww….

Lime scale build up. Not a pretty sight.

Discolored tiles: disgusting!

Dirty foot marks.

Day 11: Shine the brass/copper/silver

A big part of Diwali festivities is the copper, silver and brassware that comes out on display. In many homes, this has been passed down generations. For me, they hold a special significance as these were given by my parents during our wedding. For years, I kept them tucked away in a loft. Now they are on display adorning corners and console tables in the house; in…



Seepage scare: How we fixed a seepage on the terrace

Monsoon ~ romantic.

Petrichor ~ the distinctive, fresh, earthy scent announcing the oncoming rain is romantic.

This year, Bangalore has received sporadic cloudbursts. One such arrived on the evening of July 28th, 2016. The morning after, it felt good to step…

There is a phase in my life when I am obsessed about something. For now, it is ceramic and glass jars. Anything but plastic. Love the Organica pickle bottles. Wish they were square. I find myself buying those pickles for the bottles.
