Distressed accent storage? Check. Artwork curated online? Check. A fine balance between functional and standout furniture? Check. This 3-BHK home in Bangalore has all the points covered that makes a home fashionably modern with the bonus of not running around town to do up the home. This beautiful home with a touch of the vintage look was curated from the comforts of home; yes, shopping online. Of course, the woodwork, storage, kitchen, and the functional aspects of the home were done on location by a team of carpenters. Would you believe if I told you the homeowners, the location of…

Today, we are touring Deepa Ghankot’s cafe-themed home in Bangalore. This home has been designed in a semi-industrial and eclectic style, with predominant touches of natural and raw elements. We wanted a space that was authentic and minimalist, yet young and urban. Thus, we gravitated towards using natural elements like brick, wood, chalkboard walls, upcycled décor items etc. False ceilings, extensive use of plywood work (the only place where we have plywood is the kitchen, all other furniture including wardrobes are in either solid wood or iron), use of bulky furniture etc. find no place in the home. Considering that…

Planning to buying a old home and renovate it on a budget? Then this is for you. You will discover which interior designer to connect with, and garden, flooring and furnishing ideas. There’s something about taking a peek inside real homes. There’s a bit of suspense of what lies behind those doors, of how people dress their homes, and the excitement builds if the doorway is tastefully decorated. What I have for you today is the renovation of a 20-year old home in Vidyaranyapura, Bangalore by Jyothika Baleri of Destination Designs. Renovated homes are tricky and it takes trained eyes…

A post with the same title appeared almost two years ago on the blog. I have been coaxing Shivani to speak about her latest work for months, and was delighted to hear from the wonderful lady. Most of the projects I have featured recently require a great deal of wood work, sourcing materials across locations, and needles to say, a huge budget. From my experience of doing up our new home, I can safely say any ethnic touch costs a bomb: be it sourcing a wooden pillar or carved wood furniture. Shivani’s projects have always appealed to me because they…

A chess feature on a wall? In a tete-a-tete with Aanchal and Yogesh of Inner Space.. 1. Please tell us about Inner Space and your story before we  begin discussing the project. “Necessity is the mother of all inventions” and birth of Inner Space happened because of this very reason. In 2007, I started looking to consult Interior designers/company to do my 3 BHK house. During my search I came across many designers – some whose work I liked a lot, were not so receptive to my needs and requirements and some who would listen were not able to give…

You know you are in for a visual treat looking at this picture, right? This is entrance of a Good Home earth. So, just let your imagination run wild for what to expect inside. Real wild..you will not be disappointed. For the past three weeks, we have been going around town looking for wooden pillars for the pooja room for our home. The pooja area is not a separate room, but stands in the center of the house. So to make it a separate entity, we designed it as a central unit supported by four pillars with rafters running on…
