Whenever we think of luxury we automatically start assuming expensive. While a lot of rich a luxurious products do fall in the higher price bracket, you can easily create a luxurious atmosphere with a few simple tips without burning a whole in your pocket
Scented Candle Jars
These come in various materials from stone to ceramic. You can get a metal jar or marble jar and place it on your console or side table for your chic update.
While real Fur is a big NO-NO, Faux Fur if used properly can make a space look cozy and luxurious. If you are not ready to commit to a big throw, you can always add elements like fur cushions or fur seats.
Coffee Table Books
These are a Stylist’s go too. The trick is to get the right colours to go with your interior. Monochromes are safe while a bright red or blue can add a touch of colour
Semi- Precious Stones
And no I don’t mean just wear them. You can get stunning Home decor products like coasters and door knobs in stones like Agate and Rose Quartz. These look luxurious and add a touch of class!!
While the opinion in India seems to be divided about linen bedding, with some people feeling it might get hot, there is no doubt that linen bedding spells luxury and coziness. Also the beautiful colours would add richness to any bedroom.
Hello People, I know I am not being as regular with the blog as I used to be, but I would blame it on the fact that while blogging takes time to think of and then pen down thoughts, it is so much easier to just put images of Facebook and Instagram. Both my pages are very much active http://www.facebook.com/stylecity and instagram-aparnakaistha.
However, I did go through and mark out a few stunning design elements from the past few design shows- namely from Dubai and Maison & Objet. Here is my pick of favourite lighting designs from the shows
1.Hugues Chevalier- Art Deco Style
2. Jeremy Cole- Ceramic sculpture
3. Hamilton Conte- again very Art Deco influence
4. Bellavista Collection- Combination of Moroccan & Indian Style
5. Stephanie Coutas for Baccarat- Just stunning detail
I am an Interior Stylist from India with over 10 years of Work experience with magazines like Elle Decor, BBC Good Homes, Casaviva etc, I run a blog http://www.stylecity.in and most recently was the creative head for home and lifestyle in an e-commerce company. I have recently Launched The Pink Elephant India.
With my brand, The Pink Elephant, I am hoping to reach out to decorators, stylists & people from across the world and source products for them. I normally find products from various thrift stores and export houses which I will regularly publish on my Facebook page @thepinkelephantindia. The products are cost effective as they don’t need to be purchased in bulk.
So have a look and let me know what you think!

In the recent edition of Milano Design Week, SICIS presented its own unique vision of interior décor: contamination of styles and a balanced inspiration between classical and contemporary that offer ambiences of sophisticated comfort and elegance.
A large residence welcomed the guests: each of the ten rooms, built and furnished according to a specific mood had been tailored on the market’s demand of originality, quality and completeness. The house opened to visitors as a magical entry, reproducing designs of the famous eighteenth century Japanese painter, Ito Jakuchu. They had thus been able to show the versatility of the VETRITE, a new and innovative covering material, used for floors and walls, to clad an entire wardrobe or a wellness room but also for exclusive panels with artistic mosaic, or table tops and other furniture.
They had focused particular attention on the upholstered pieces, creating a series of proposals that best express the renewed textile collection TESSERE. Eclectic and harmonious, elegant and sophisticated is the style that the Company feels is its own and this year they have been able to share the same with visitors.
