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

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 🙂
