Study desk: which one would you buy?

“You really don’t need my expert opinion on this. 4 months? You got to be kidding me,” remarked my otherwise cool husband, literally throwing his hands up in despair.

DIY Inspiration: Painted Bed

One evening last month, while searching for a sofa for our living room, I happened to go to the @ home store in Marathahalli with my son. When we moved from the Living section to the Bedroom section, his eyes caught a colorful red-and-orange colored bunker with a nice set of wheels and ladder. To be honest, even I loved it. He insisted on getting it home,…



Ideas for Painting Old Furniture

Do we have any diligent readers (read: obsessively checking Google Reader for new posts) of Apartment Therapy here? If yes, you would know that a good chunk of posts are about restoring or transforming old furniture through painting and replacing the hardware. Images of antique, worn wooden cabinet/dresser/table painted into white or turquoise blue are swimming in my head now.

Classy Furniture from Pinakin

I recently discovered Pinakin while browsing through a magazine, and later did what I do usually – look them up online.  I was impressed that they have a better online presence than most Indian furniture and home decor stores.

The functional yet great looking furniture speak for themselves. So, I’m going to cut down on the text and let you savor my picks.
