Home decor: 4 ways to use the humble cycle as a conversation starter

Who doesn’t love bicycles? Isn’t it one of our first proud accomplishments as a child when we learn to bike without the side support wheels and then enthrall/show-off to parents riding without the support of hands. As we grow, it is replaced by motorcycle and the four wheels. Oh well, when the waistline grows with age, a fancy bicycle slowly makes its way back into the…



Do touches of pink up the oomph quotient of a room? See for yourself.

pink

Fuchsia.

Pink.

Raspberry.

All variants of shades of pink. After mustard last week, I’m drawn towards this glamorous color. Blame it on the bougainvilleas all around. This color is so pronounced that it can stand its own ground or accentuate the presence of others like gray. When I was looking for homes that celebrate this color, little did I realize that…



Ideas you can steal from 6 homes that flaunt bohemian style with pizzazz

Bohemian: a socially unconventional person, especially one who is involved in the arts.

That’s the definition of Bohemian. When it comes to interiors and decor, if there is one style among a dozen that is loud and has the character to stand out among the rest, it is undoubtedly a Bohemian-inspired one. Here is a collection of 6 rooms that showed up on my IG feed that…



Mustard inspiration: See how these 8 homes effortlessly use yellow to make our heads turn

Yellow.

Mustard.

Ochre.

Mango.

All different interpretations of the same color in its various hues and shades; accent walls in this stunning color makes many a home stand out from the crowd. I fell in love with this shade years ago, and there’s at least one wall in the home that is painted in a variation of this color at any time.

Summer is here, and I can see vibrant…

air freshener

 

OK. I have a confession (make that two!) to make.

I’m sleep-deprived most days, because I can’t sleep through the night.

And, I’m obsessed with mild, natural scents.

Ever wondered why spas make you feel good from the moment you step in? Do you have a distinct memory of a place because of the way it smelled? It’s in the…



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.

I’ve compiled five of the most interesting homes on AD in 2016. They all share a…



Srirangam: a shopper’s delight

I was in Trichy two weeks ago; it was the Golden Jubilee celebrations of my alma mater which we’d missed anyway. I usually don’t visit Srirangam on my trips there but this time happened to go there two times in three days. And each time, was in for a complete surprise. The crowded thoroughfare leading upto the temple was full of stuff that has eluded…



How Shivani Dogra Dresses Up Homes

For all you home makeover connoisseurs who ogle at before-after pictures endlessly (like me!), the name Shivani Dogra should flash the famous pictures of her Delhi pad in your mind. Even if her name doesn’t ring a bell, this picture should! Ever since I read about her little renovation project on a budget in BBC GoodHomes, I’ve associated her style with simplicity, uniqueness, use of…



Joss & Main

You are checking your mail. A little box on the corner (the ad, of course) distracts you! How often do you click on it? I get distracted easily :( but it’s not always that I click on one. This time I did and I’m glad I got distracted.

Maybe you’ve heard of them. But it was new for me. Meet the online store Joss &…



Garden Tour: Madhu’s colorful terrace garden

There are two things that make me immensely happy in the home : color and healthy plants, and of course a loving family. I’m happy today on seeing some lovely pictures and it’s only fair that you be a part of this too :) Is there any such thing as too many plants or too much color! I guess not, that’s what Madhu believes in. Madhu…
