Bohemian-Living-Room-Decor-header

As a serial procrastinator, designing a bohemian mood board felt like writing a surprise multiple choices test, where the possibilities were endless and the indecisiveness relentless. After much stalling, I strangely and aptly realized that, true bohemian design is indeed a product of time and patience.  Continue reading

Hacks for Home: Organizing Credit/Debit and Loyalty Cards

Is your household also sent into a frenzy when you can not find that one little wretched debit card? “I kept it right here!! I swear!!” is what we hear a lot in this house when that happens. Soon, it’s a full blown Missing Cards’s Case, witnesses are called, testimonies recorded, last known whereabouts traced (if only there was CCTV footage), theories fly, arguments ensue and after countless attempts at blatant blame shifting, we finally give up.

I have been that person, for the longest time, that shudders at the thought of any of her appliances breaking down…only and only…because she is more scared of going through the mountain pile of manuals and warranties lying in a bottom drawer somewhere. Read More…

Decor 101: Earthy, Natural & Organic Living Room

earhty-natural-living-room-decor-headerLiving in an apartment on the nth floor you miss the ‘earth’. That sounded a lot like an astronaut’s 165th day in the space (I would kill for that view or that career btw). As a non apartment inhabiting person missing his garden, my visiting grandfather seldom often puts his similar feelings in these words “Not living on the ground and not living in the sky, you are stuck somewhere in between”.
