Style Picks of the Week

What is a good design? This is a question that crosses every design students mind. In the most simple way it would be something which is practical yet aesthetically appealing. But if we delve deeper into that, something aesthetically appealing to you may just not appeal to me one bit and vice-versa. And just cause something is not practical does not mean we will not purchase it if we like it. I think it comes down to our personalities and lifestyle. Which is also something I constantly tell people when they ask for my opinion on something for their houses, ultimately it is your home, you have to live in it, I can only suggest but I definitely cannot enforce my choices. Here my idea is to showcase a variety of products and reviews to help you choose what you like. And I sincerely thank you for taking time out to go through my site and also leave me your feedback. If you like any products or have designed any and want them showcased please mail me the details. Till then enjoy this weeks pick and stay stylish!

Style Picks of the week

This week I was sitting with a friend and having a drink on my balcony (Well more like a small outdoor area which is as far as you get in Mumbai) and just checking out the view. So here is a description, you can see high rises in a distance, a few trees, fancy cars on one side. And if you peek down on the other side you see slums, lots of people, cows, and cycles. Yet I cannot imagine the city to be either one or another. I mean if I was in a place which was super luxurious and perfect I would be absolutely bored out of my skull. I love the chaos yet calmness I feel living here. Keeping this mood intact, this weeks product selection has been just that. Simple yet beautifully designed products. I have focussed on classy designs, simple materials. So go ahead have a look, and stay Stylish 🙂

Style picks of the week

So as a stylist most people feel my job is to go shopping. I mean really when I lived with my parents that is what my dad thought I did for a living. He could not understand anything besides the fact that my name came in the magazine each month. Well in a way it is true and which is why I love it so much. Since I am on a break of kinds, I mean I am still doing freelance shoots for magazines but you know what I mean, I just figured I will share something with you: The thing is with a magazine alot of times not all the products I actually sourced or loved made it to the pages. I mean alot of times it was a layout call, as in even if the product is fabulous it doesn’t look good with the rest, but mostly it is cause a magazine has limited space. So I have decided to start this thing which I am going to update every week, My style picks of the week. Thats me by the way in the picture. Since it is my column I figured I could have a picture of me (What? If I was doing a column for a magazine they would put my picture in wont they?) So here goes, my top picks of the week and the reason I like them 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Silver Collection, Amrapali. Cause Silver looks good at all ages and styles
  2. Votive holder, Bianca. Well, ok with this peice it is the colour and design. I can so imagine it on my terrace/garden with candles, or if you like quirky like I do then on the living room centre table*, about 3 in different styles.
  3. Puzzle Chaise lounge, Ego Paris. Cause with space being such an issue in most metros I love how well these peices fit together. And I would love to be wrapped up with my significant other, inside the puzzle (when I have one,both significant other and the chaise lounge)
  4. Flower vases, Magppie. Bright colour is my thing, nuff said
  5. Ikat collection, Cocoon fine rugs. India is home, India is inspiration and I love the print on this rug, I can picture it with a completely modern living room setting. Would make a great fusion look.
  6. Mademoiselle collection, Christopher Guy at International Furniture Brands. Cause we are the divas and deserve nothing less than a collection dedicated to us. (An entire nation me thinks, but will do with this collection for the time being)
  7. Classic collection, Westinghouse. This is for all the men I know. Simply cause a girl likes to have a nice cup of tea in the morning and thats the least you can do for her, (plus impress her on the morning after with this sleek kettle )
  8. Zodax Spring, Renovation factory. Well besides the fact that we have the last bit of spring left here, its just so pretty and feminine
  9. Multicoloured necklace, Toniq accessories. It is bright and cool, imagine it one a plain white dress this upcoming summer. With the correct footwear you are ready to attend any brunch, or sundown party.(I told you I love brunches and parties)
  10. Chair, Beyond Designs. Well it looks classy and if your taste is a little on the traditional side it would make great living room side chairs or formal dining chairs.

*My centre table is actually two painted steel trunks stacked up on each other. One is orange and one is blue. Well, it looks quirky and is great for storage.
