The 12th Anniversary issue of Elle Decor was brimming with ideas,design and colours. There were three homes featured from each corner of India,but I felt there was something very earthy,very natural that binded the three homes in an issue.
Teaming a medley of opposites,the Shades of India duo play with a profusion of ideas in their penthouse.Juxtaposing textures and shades and a blend of old with new is apparent in every area.Contemporary Indian and European paintings are places alongside quirky objects such as kitsch venetian style mirrors or large earthenware pots in which we like to put fresh bamboo cuttings or dries sprays of foliage.
The Home in Khotachiwadi is an yesteryear Nostalgia.An ode to the bygone eras of Bombay -time stands still at fashion designer James Ferreiras two storeyed residence within the heritage village of Khotachi wadi
Relaxing Susegad style is the order of the day at Kavita Dutta's clean and simple "Portuguese Casa",where the interiors co- exist in perfect harmony with their surroundings.
