Today, we are touring Deepa Ghankot’s cafe-themed home in Bangalore. This home has been designed in a semi-industrial and eclectic…



Pottery Lane: a non-descript street where hands are at work shaping lumps of clay into kulhads and tandoors

Every once in a while I hail a cab to take me to a part of the city I haven’t been to before.

This mini-adventure is refreshing to the soul and the mind.

Unfamiliar sights. Fresh scents. Some familiar cacophony. Different perspectives.

Every old neighborhood of Bangalore has a strong regional influence some of which can be seen to this…



Kitchen Tour: A ply kitchen where budget meets fancy accessories

We often associate wood as the material for interiors. After a radical introduction of stainless steel as the prime material in our previous kitchen tour, today I take you through its traditional alternative: a ply kitchen that is budget-friendly without compromising on accessories. This is also executed by CapriCoast. Just like the previous post, all frequently asked questions are addressed in this post: how…



Hampi: Where to stay, eat, and how to get around

Hampi

We visited Hampi for two days last weekend (the long weekend of Ganesh Chaturthi). Unlike most places, the planning bit to Hampi was challenging since we decided not to drive and take the train instead. I found very little information online on how to travel to and from the hotel, and how much it would realistically cost. Almost everyone…

In this post, I analyse if you should consider buying a row house in Renaissance Nature Walk.

Continuing with the House Hunt series, today I present to you one of our ah! moments.

One where space is the king.

One where light rules, and flows in unhindered.

One where you can spread a chataai on the terrace and gaze at the stars…



Best sites to shop from for furnishing your home

Owning a house was THE goal after kids’ education and wedding for our parents’ generation.

That is slowly changing now with most of us getting an apartment in early 20s.

Signing on the dotted line in the agreement should bring happiness.

Ads show images of folks like us sitting on the balcony/lawn sipping tea leisurely flipping through the pages of newspaper.

Often, they are flanked by manicured lawns, a…



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 head, I spoke with Harsh Jain of Nestopia one afternoon. How about some prettiness…



Sampoorn Santhe 2013 – a craft fair you wouldn’t want to miss!

Sampoorn Santhe, organized by Sampoorn, is currently being held at Chitra Kala Parishath. Bangalore is a treat for craft lovers. Last week, I went to the half-yearly Kala Madhyam held at Basava Bhavan (you didn’t miss anything as the show was a flop!) .  So, I was not enthusiastic about Sampoorn Santhe but still found myself there yesterday morning with the camera in tow and…



Kala Madhyam art & craft fair

 

Before I begin, just a quick reminder: have you entered the Zansaar giveaway yet? The contest runs until tomorrow evening, so you may want to make a…



Dastkar in pictures (lanterns, potlis and baskets): Part 2

You thought I was done writing about Dastkar, didn’t you? I’m sorry folks, but I just can’t get over the excitement that nature bazaar happened so close to home. Yes, I made one final trip on Friday morning and back with some more pictures. So, this is one last post until next year.

Some of the stuff I saw this time was mind blowing. Like…
