My love for modular kitchens and kitchen design is no secret.

The more you see, the more you want. That’s the paradox…



Riva Carpets

As soft as a feather,

As smooth as a glider,

As warm as the sun,

As firm as a rock,

As pleasant as smile,

As beautiful as you.

Inspired and adapted from Lenka’s Everything at once – one of my all time favorites.

These words also describe this beauty that arrived in the mail today. Our home…



Baskets from the Baba Tree Basket Company

Pinterest is smart.

It is aware of the things I love and adore.

Baskets being one of them. Brownies being the other.

Pin recommendations have been full of drool-worthy brownies.

But, it’s not often that you stop scrolling to drool and obsess over one pin because its pixels are oozing with deftness and beauty. I’m talking about these lovely baskets from…



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?

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 –…



Friday Finds: 7+ Places to Buy Beds Online (Under Rs.40,000)

Someone recently asked me to recommend a place to buy a queen size bed. It’s been a while since I have bought furniture from a brick-and-mortar store. All the furniture for our new home came were bought online: some great experiences and some we will regret forever.

What makes all the difference

It’s not just the designs, quality, and price that make the difference; for me customer…



The Cashless Online Life: Your Guide to Living Comfortably Cashfree, From Groceries and Clothes to Furniture

8:45 p.m. on 8th Nov. 2016. I was drawing the curtains on our bed room, and picking a book from my bedside table to read later that night. The phone was ringing repeatedly downstairs; it was my dad calling frantically to relay the historic news of 500 and 1000 notes being no longer accepted. Only a few minutes ago, the husband had communicated the same….



Vastrabharana: decoding the shopping experience

Cacophony of color and voices.

Overwhelmed.

Women dressed in their elegant best.

Where it feels like an over-sized FabIndia showroom.

Where new-age khadi and linen fabrics overshadow kanjivaram and banarasi sarees.

That pretty much sums up my first day experience at Vastrabharana: the handloom exhibition organized by Crafts Council of Karnataka. It is an annual exhibition that happens in the last week/first week of September/October….



Oasis Tiles India: How to choose tiles for your home

vitrified tiles

One of the often asked questions/email queries from the readers of the blog is on tiles. You may wonder why a common topic such as tiles would pique the interest of so many people. Often, the seemingly simple ones are the ones that take up the most time when you are building a home. The questions I get…



Antique/Rustic Picks I’m Loving: all under Rs. 1000

Thanks to a bunch of sites catering to every fetish from street wear to handicrafts, working is so much fun now.

When I want a minute’s break, I just let myself be distracted and click on one of the ads that pop up. And boy, am I glad when I find a treasure on a newly discovered site. Like a old wooden block, an antique shelf,…
