A Colonial Artful Home

Last night while browsing through Elle Décor, I was drawn towards this beautiful home in Calcutta that was featured sometime back. This home that was once city’s premier department store and is creatively converted into a beautiful space filled with antique rosewood and mahogany furniture handed down over generations, a collection of ceramic and bone china plates and paintings collected over the years. The high ceiling, large veranda, the thick walls and the wood shutters on the apartment’s window are fine examples of colonial architecture. To me this home is luxury.....

Purple Haze

Purple is a colour of royalty, mystery and sophistication. Too much of purple can be a little eccentric, funky and bold and it’s not for everyone.  But if you decide to choose Purple in its many tints and hues, when chosen correctly and have a perfect blend with a different colour you can add drama and glamour in your space. Have a look at these pictures from Better Homes and Garden for some purple inspiration! 

Purple and white is my favourite combination

Are you inspired by Purple for some flamboyance?

The K's Cafe

A month back I received an invite to feature a café and three days back I finally got to visit this beautiful Chic Café called The K’s café, located at Al Masa Mall Oman. It’s the perfect café for me to take my girlfriends there and catch up after a game of bowling at the mall. The interiors were chic, colourful with a nice fusion of happy colours and decorated with beautiful tea pots and tea cups. The K’s Café is owned by the Al Khusaibi sisters and their inspiration comes from their travels to Europe and their love and passion for food, tea and coffee and yummy delights. This café caters not to just coffee lovers but to tea lovers as well. I loved their diverse menu that ranges from freshly baked bread & pastries, burgers, pasta, soups and salads. Other than the diverse range of coffee and tea, they have a nice variety of juice and provide breakfast as well. Everything in their menu comes with a healthy twist as the Al Khusaibi sisters believes in living healthy.

I loved the way my tea arrived in lovely teapot warmer, a timer and some freshly baked cookies.

Vignette Inspiration

Creating a vignette in my space is something I am trying to accomplish. It’s the art of mixing different objects together which will give you that special designer zing to your home. Choose any flat surface like a bookshelf, dresser or table and group accessories like vases, mirrors, frames, plants, books, sculptures or any your collectibles to give your home a polished look. Click here to read tips from Lonny on how to create your own vignette in your style.

Saturday Clicks

It’s a beautiful Saturday morning and I started clicking away in my garden. And that one hour in my garden was so blissful, surrounded by flowers, plants, trees and the constant chirping of birds. Grateful for this small time with nature.... away from the chaotic routine. And I had to share these pictures with you to kick start your day. Have a nice day everyone!!

Shakespeare and Co.: A Victorian Styled Cafe-Restaurant

Last weekend I spent an evening at a beautiful Chic cafe-restaurant called Shakespeare and Co. It’s a UAE-based chain located at The Wave Muscat and has a great view of Almouj Marina. And what attracted me the most, other than the diverse menu was the Victorian style decor. Everything in the cafe was uniquely styled and vintage, adorned with beautiful lamp shades, curtains, vintage sofas and chairs. I just couldn’t stop admiring and feeling the Victorian ambience.

Love the Menu
