Vintage-Industrial-Living-Room-Decor-headerDepending on if and when I find my pot of gold, my dream living room would be a (cheaper) recreation of any DECOR 101 post, in a heartbeat.

 “Meet Neha and Gaurav, architects and founders of Layers Studio for Design & Architecture, and their little munchkin Kalki (the cutest baby ever!!). Today, we take a peek inside their home in Greater Noida that also doubles up as a home office. As architects designing for themselves, they have made some really bold design decisions both spatially and aesthetically.

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. Fast forward to five days, that little guy was hiding in a blazer pocket.
