My Summer pleasures..

A little bit of summer is what I look forward to and it is what the whole year is about.These are just the starting of the happy summer moments here .The blues that blew the mind,the paisleys that got me enchanted always,white mulmuls that sway to the gentle breeze,the orange bells that shine in the summer,the handmade pankhas a boon to the looming powercuts and on goes the summers..Enjoy these snippets while i come back with more:)-

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on trees ,just as things grow fast in movies i had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with summer.

Be Vintage!

Be Vintage creates home decor items with a vintage look complete with distressed finish and fun, bright colours.Young entrepreneurs Grishma, Abhineet and Monica with varied backgrounds have teamed up to develop a line of unique vintage style Victorian and French-inspired furniture .

Their items first range from frames, keyholders,wall hangings to furniture and showcase featured cabinets, chairs, nightstands, wooden trunks, etc., Their USP are the wood printed decor products. It's a new technique wherein an image is printed on wood.They source images online, treat them a certain way, add filters, etc., and then print them on wood. While most of their furniture is made of pine wood, Beech, Acacia and African Teak, they are open to customisation. They have also developed their own paints to get the distressed look for their furniture.They primarily sell through Facebook and one-off exhibitions but have now started stocking their products at a couple of boutiques in the city.  hoping to change the way into something beautiful and unusual.

Some of them which i love from their collections are here :)-

Jade Jagger's India Style!


Jade Sheena Jezebel Jagger is an English jewelry designersocialite and former model.Jagger was born in Paris, France. She is the only child of Bianca a Nicaraguan model, actress and philanthropist, and Mick Jagger, an English musician and actor.

A Bohemian, eclectic-chic, stylish, relax and creative exotic home exposing wonderful local design details of magnificent India. It is a land where the inside and outside of the residence blend in harmony. It is a home for a rich inspirational living style..

The creative owner Jade Jagger behind this interesting and exotic land of property in Goa explains the local sense of design with her below words;
“Everyone in India, whatever their financial situation, cherishes and owns items that are beautiful and unique. Whether it’s a fabulous shawl, a hanging on the wall or jewellery, you can see that everybody invests as much effort as they can to decorate themselves and their homes with great design. In India, if you’re looking for some metal furniture, for example, you’re more likely to go to the ironmonger and create your own chair than go to a shop. This is a country in touch with artisan production.”
 I don’ t think there is anybody who wouldnt love this simple and loving bedroom. Very much wabi-sabi style… Red and grey striped bedcover creates impact in the room, the rest of the neutral elements calm the eye..Warm yellow, red and pink colors, rich blues, geometric patterns on layered textiles, tropical natural wooden textures, grass rooftops, naked concrete floors, grass carpets, authentic metallic objects in this simply beautiful home and the green lush view on the background which all combine to give a feeling of tranquility.
