The sparkling festival sesaon rolls in again bringing along with it the fresh flowers, overflowing silks, candles,  floaters, vases, marigolds, zari bordered cushions and  knickknacks in silver, bronze and ivory tones.

Set the stage and turn the house into a cosy setting for the gorgeous evening..Let the home take a classical look on one day, a house in style on the other and let fun unfold everywhere.
