A Dream of an October

For a very rare exception, October became my favorite month of the year. And why not, Parrot & Lily was part of two very prestigious events back to back. I had to postpone my vacation and move my Diwali card party twice but life is quite sorted when you have good friends.  Apart from classic furniture & decor, my interests are quite concentrated. I love my daughter, can never get enough family travel, and it would be an understatement to say that I love the magic of wine. In fact, a lot of our travel is centered toward wine regions....

Design Wednesdays - More Contemporary rooms, classic furniture - Theme Blanc

Recently, I had shared some beautiful pictures and inspirations that had classic furniture in a contemporary room setting. I'm always of the opinion that you don't have to label your home to one exact style or period of decor. You just have to have the aesthetic sense to bring everything together in perfect harmony. And do restrain from falling into design fads. They look good but get outdated very fast so sticking to, and investing in classics is a very good idea.  Like for my home, I can proudly say that I have tried to mix the Sinhalese/Deccan tropical and...

Design Wednesdays - Playing with scales

When it comes to home décor, every subtle detail counts – colours, textures, lines, patterns, light and scale.

They could be area covered by wall art, floor covered by carpet, drop of the chandelier, and of course – Furniture. Undoubtedly, the scope of discussion on scale is really vast, but I've taken a...

5 cafes that should be on your bucket list, for the sheer love of Coffee

Coffee, the liquid gold. Perfect in those little cute espresso cups as it is in big tall glasses filled with ice.  If you equally detest when baristas blatantly remind you that espresso comes without milk; & if you can count 10 names of brilliant origin coffee beans and their relative taste in thirty seconds, then you are as passionate about this noble bean as we are.  We would love to share our favourite 5 cafes that have fabled coffees that you will never forget. Gimme! Coffee, NYC - You just have to repeat the name as soon as you come in their SOHO...

Ten beautiful nurseries to die for

Ten beautiful nurseries to die for

It's not a secret that Nurseries are the most adorable rooms in any home. And why shouldn't they be, after all they're that room of the house where the most love in decorating goes. I don't know any mom, or dad who doesn't want to give their little one anything less than an enchanted wonderland. I remember the countless number of hours I spent reading about nursery decoration, planning & designing the prefect cot & dècor that goes around it.  We knew we could not settle for one of those mass produced cribs. I remember endless trips to the mall & furniture stores...
