Coming Home is one of the Most Beautiful Things …

Aug 2, 2018

Of all things beautiful and luxurious, nothing is more important than a beautiful home!!

Tory Burch’s stunning home gives us goose bumps ,  and Michael Kors spectacular apartment in NYC for AD is a dream. 

“Even when they travel, the treasures they pick up are in earthy tones that will easily translate when they get back home, from a woven basket found in Thailand to glass vases discovered in Venice.”

Your house should be a reflection of your life, a story of your journeys and most important a place to fell safe, comfortable and loved. Don’t rush to buy everything at once , pick items that call out to you. Be romantic, be emotional and trust your instincts. Play with colours and themes. This isn’t a hotel so try to bring your personality into the look and feel. Mix bespoke pieces with antiques, add souvenirs you pick up on your travels. Tell your story !! 

The rule is .. there are no rules!

If you are wondering Antique Vs New,  buy what you love. You cannot guarantee that any antique will be a smart investment. You do however, want to stay away from anything matching,  it’s always a nice idea to a have a few key pieces for a surprise, a talking point.

Loco Design , a design house based in Delhi  makes bespoke furniture with meticulous detailing.

We love everything with a little bit of tradition , Gulmohar Lane makes furniture  with excellent craftsmanship, with skills and techniques handed down  from  generations of furniture and sofa karigars, who have been working for Indian  Royal households. Old meets new to perfection with the fantastic range.

The exception to the no rule policy  when buying  furniture is to choose investment pieces. Ralph Lauren’s iconic design with its signature pieces and exquisite craftsmanship sure ticks this box and a little name dropping makes for good conversation.

Some design houses led by celebrities are Raseel Gujral Ansal’s Casa Paradox for  furnitures and home accessories.

The Charcoal Project by Sussanne Khan is great for home decor, home  accessories and antiques.

Designing your dream home isn’t as easy as it seems and having a professional help you is money well spend. It’s not only the aesthetic but comfort, design and the right materials are key to enjoying your home.  We leave you with Bollywood’s queen bee and interior designer
