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!
