Look at the picture of the entrance above and take a guess what the railing reminds you of. The answer is hidden somewhere in the rest of the post. The interior designer for this project named this house: “Evocative Domesticity”. Does it sound intriguing? Well, it did for me. But, then, trust The Company of Design, the folks who designed this apartment to give every project they design  — an identity of its own, symbolic of its occupants and the design. In simple words, evocative domesticity means ” memories of home or family life.” As you scroll through the images…

What makes a home tour endearing to watch for you? The deciding factor for me is often one picture, I would have got  a fleeting glance of, on some medium.  And, more often than not, I will delightfully discover this picture was just the tip of the iceberg as more goodness lies buried underneath in layers all over the house. It’s the little details that sets apart a thoughtfully conceived one from one put together hastily. You will pleasantly unearth many such details in this renovated apartment designed by Studio M Design. About the home: Type: 3 BHK apartment for…

I very strongly believe if you go back to your roots, if you mine that inner territory, you can bring out something that is incredibly you and authentic – like your thumbprint. It’s going to have your style because there is no one like you. – Joyce Tenneson This home was all about going back to roots, for its owners Sai and Anusha. The 2,500 sq.ft style Chettinad style apartment in Bangalore has been designed by Jyothika Baleri of Destination Designs. This post is going to be a little different because instead of me Jyothika will narrate the journey of…

This bedroom stood out from hundred others on my Insta feed. I don’t know what is more captivating: the beautiful B&W furnishing or the laid back style of the bedroom that makes you want to jump in. Most of all, it looks lived in and decorated with love. Today we are touring Izzy’s townhouse. She lives with her family in a 3-bed townhouse in Oxfordshire, UK. They have lived in the house for six years now. When I asked Izzy to describe her decorating style, she said” I would say my decorating style is heavily influenced by Scandi and mid…

Pillars? Check. Tussar paneled wardrobes? Check Pattachitra painting? Check. Is this a house or a museum? You’ll see. I call Jyothika Baleri of Destination Designs the queen of ethnic design; and, with good reason. I’ve featured many of her projects here over the years. It’s time for a home tour again where handicrafts and art collected from all over India takes center stage. If you are an art aficionado who loves to visit exhibitions and craft fairs, it is fair to assume that you would have accumulated paintings, sculptures, and exquisite hand-looms over the years. Are you at a loss…

Let us take a break from our minimal, modern interiors for some visual indulgence in this apartment in Vadodara. Designed by Studio 7 designs, it would be unfair to categorize the aesthetic of this sprawling apartment as traditional or contemporary; for, it checks all the boxes and does it effortlessly. About the project: Location: Oakwood Residences, Vadodara Type: A 4 BHK apartment converted into 3 bedrooms and 1 study If the gilded and brown tones impart the traditional character, the furniture reinforce it. But, the contemporary artwork gives the living room a stamp of modernity. The architect says about…

Imagine the vibe you get sitting on that pretty swing in the living room, dressed in soothing blues, overlooking the mill lands. I can feel the sand on my toes, the sound of the ocean, and gentle wind blowing through my hair caressing the face. This 1,500 sq.ft, 3 BHK apartment in Central Mumbai belongs to a family of four avid trekker-travelers; their heart lies in the hills, but the home is infused with breezy colors and patterns giving the feeling one is on an extended coastal vacation. It is a fine example of how one’s wanderlust can influence a home’s interiors.…

In a profile of over 1,000 images, this unassumingly simple image of a day bed in a high rise apartment in Brazil slithered its way into my heart for reasons unknown. Is it the teasing laid back character of the chaise? Do you have the same thoughts – day dreaming about lounging in this plush bed with a cup of tea on this lazy monsoon afternoon? I tried digging…

I swooned when this living room popped up in my Insta feed yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to see the rest of this industrial chic cottage. You see, more often that not, you go weak on the knees by the style of one room when the rest of the home is diametrically opposite in design. But, with this one, as I saw more, I wanted to see more of its metamorphosis over the years. With each passing picture over the timeline, it’s as if you are peeling layer by layer, and it only gets better with every addition of a…
