Try this: an origami birthday-party invite that will lit up your guests’ faces!

origami invite

My son’s birthday party was a last-minute-let’s-do-it affair. We had decided we wouldn’t have one, or probably have one a week later. But just like that, three days before his birthday, we decided to have one as my dad was visiting. There you…

Baskets, baskets, why are you so elusive?


This has to be the longest search ever for baskets. From @ Home to Hyper City and M.K. Retail to Total and Safina Plaza (in the hope there may be some exhibition) to FabIndia, I’ve been everywhere. And still looking.

Total, Hyper City and M.K….

From 2000 to 300 square feet: small is beautiful

320 sq foot 320 sq foot cottage

Hope you had a blast yesterday for Holi. Make a guess: how much can you fit in a 320 sq. foot space? Living and dining at the maximum, or perhaps living and a modest kitchen?

It’s time to be happy with the…

Nestopia: here’s where you hire your interior designer, and a home tour!

Good morning! How’s the week treating you folks? I’m hoping you are reading this post on feedly or some other reader. How did you find the transition? As much as I like feedly, I miss Google Reader.

So anyways, early last month, after the numbers slowly started receding from my…

Goodbye Shopo!

I was going to do the customary Friday Shopping (FS) post today but I’ve instead decided to say a formal goodbye to Shopo, which has had a significant presence in many of the FS picks.
