Happy New Year everyone! No lists, no resolutions, I’m sure you’ve read enough of them in the past week. And no excuses either why this space has been silent. So, let’s just dive in and indulge ourselves. On a side note, it turns out I started writing this post on Nov. 21. Phew!
I was flipping through the Diwali (Nov. ’13) edition of GoodHomes, and I just couldn’t get past the Menons’ home in Bangalore. The home tours is by far my favorite section of the magazine. Earlier, I was quite fond of their recipe section too but ever since GoodFood launched, this section has become virtually non-existent. If you happen to a grab a physical copy of the issue and leaf through the pages, you’ll relate to what I’m saying about the Menon home.
But, what is more striking about the feature is the way Meenakshi Shankar describes the place. I’m sorry..I have to take that back; she has not described it; you can actually feel her experience as she walked through the home. The language is as ornate as the house; as free flowing as the decor.Every word aptly describes the royal treatment every corner deserves. Having said that, it’s time for the tour.
I’ve always wondered how the interiors of an artist’s home would look like? All walls adorned with paintings, no corner spared, color burst perhaps. you bet – this one is all of that and more!
