Sanjukta & Subrat Sen's Comely Indian Home

Much before I started blogging on décor and home spaces, I had told Sanjukta Mashi (Mashi, as in aunt in Bengali, as I refer to her), that her home was too pretty to be kept a secret. When I visited them first in Hyderabad, I remember being fascinated by her sense of style and aesthetics. It was one of those homes that perfectly reflected and embodied the personality of the person who did it up. The pictures shared here are from her home in Mumbai. I love Indian looking homes. Sculptures, paintings, knick-knacks and the 'Teak wood look' always works for me. Also, I think day beds always give living rooms a cosy look, don't you agree? I love the day bed in the first picture.

The second picture is my favourite. It is a simple black singer sewing machine that she picked from chor bazaar and converted it to a beautiful artistic looking table with a glass top. Yes, she is not one of the run of the mill home decorators. She invests time and creativity in little things to personalise her home.  Hope you love seeing Sanjukta and Subrat Sen's home and send them some love for inspiring you!


This is the kind of place I call a perfect place for some 'adda'.

See you soon!

Tweet in a chic 'Atmosphere'

I love Atmosphere Furnishing's online presence. Apart from a really active FB page , their latest offer is a very innovative digital marketing idea -  Twitter backgrounds and desktop wallpapers, to change the 'atmosphere' of your Twitter page. I found the concept fresh, fun and relatively new in the décor and furnishings space in India. The same has been developed and conceptualised by their digital agency 22 Feet. I'm loving how digitally savvy marketeers are getting.

Also ensure you check out their website that won them an award for the best retail website design at the BBC Digital Media Awards.

Nice and chic, don't you think? You should give it a try, Tweeple!

Fun Online Lifestyle Store >> Quirko

Been a while since I saw a store as fun and full of quirk as 'Quirko' ! I love the name too! Quirko is an online lifestyle store that stocks knick-knacks, accessories for your table, couch, bar, fridge, desk and wall - all absolutely cool things to turn your home into a fun zone.  I saw some Happily Unmarried stuff stocked there too!
I loved some of their cushions, especially the first one I've put up here called ' Butterfly tie up cushion' -

And these were some of my favourite picks. I want those digital art prints for my study.

This piece of beauty is by Mukul Goyal Called the ' People Tree'  - haha! I loved it :)

You now know where to buy fun gifts from and how to add a dash of quirk to your home. As for me, I'm going to wait till they start shipping internationally.  Oh, and click here to go to their Facebook page, and 'Like' them, if you like :).

See ya soon!

Aliyeh's vibrant pad in Bangalore

Aliyeh's home can be best described in artist Hans Hofmann's words- 'It is not the form that dictates the color, but the color that brings out the form'.

The way Aliyeh has made use of colour in her absolutely delightful home in Koramangla, makes you want to curl up in one of her striking corners with your favourite book and a cuppa. Subtle greens, striking yellows and a dash of pink gives Aliyeh's pad that 'spring here is eternal' feel!

Together with the little curios, knick knacks and little bits of the world that she has collected in her travels, makes her place the perfect home. So come, lets see her sunshine place, that she has so alluringly done up.

The snug living room

In Aliyeh's words- 'The Serenity Corner' 

Notice the dreamlike green curtains?

Aliyeh's Mum's paintings, coloured bottles I so love and the Mother Of Pearl Chandelier from Goa

A close up of the lovely bottles!

A dash of pink by the window

Love the cushions and the  Japan poster.

Her dressing corner 

Colours galore!

Sink into that chair with a cup of  Darjeeling while you listen to some music

...And a new day will dawn, for those who stand along...Led Zepp Poster

Happiness in a shelf!

Did that brighten you up? I hope it did.

French Pop - A cosy place in London

This cute and cosy colourful home in London is adorable.
The colours are so well put together and the darkest corners of the room are lit up with colourful accessories.

The living room is my favourite! Source: marieclairemaison.com

Decorating! Twitter style...

Twitter employees got a funky new office in San Francisco this week. Adorably, the entire decor is 'twitter style'! The office is complete with funky lounge areas, a DJ booth and conference rooms and working areas surrounded by birds wall graffiti!
Very tweet, I must say!
Here are some pictures that were shared by some employees.
