About Me

My photo
Well, when I was a little girl I would spend hours flipping through the pages of a huge catalogue called "Quelle" that my father had brought from Germany. It had glossy pages full of beautiful pictures of lovely rooms, furniture and furnishing and was written in a language I could not decipher. But I think the pictures left an ever lasting impression on my mind and I grew up to be 'me' who drools not over food (or that too!) but good interior design, colors and photography. I also passionately love coffee, films, books, music, white gladioli, solitude, risotto, donuts, and my life (not exactly always in that order). I live in Bombay, India with my husband and little daughter and they both have changed my life in many beautiful ways.

Friday, 7 September 2012


Thank God It's Friday! This is what I used to tell myself on Friday mornings while driving to office.  And I would start dreaming about the weekend plans, which mostly consisted of chilling at home. I was never a very sociable person in those times when I was a corporate slave. That ten to eight schedule would sap my energy and my non-conformist self would cringe in pain at having to follow the office etiquette and routine. Not that I didn't love my work, in fact I loved it very much but I hated following the compulsion of having to sit in one place. But I did it well and did it for ten long years. Phew! So all through my working years, my weekends were for myself and my boyfriend (now husband). Things have changed now. I long to see and meet people. And I no longer wait for Fridays because now weekend means whenever my husband is at home and three of us get to spend the day together. He being a freelancer is able to bring us that joy even in the middle of the week.  

So I know how you feel on Fridays. Relieved! And hoping to get the most out of your weekend. That's why I saved the inviting pictures of cosy nooks to share with you today.

Do you have such a corner in your house, where you love to spend your weekend sitting and reading a book, or chatting up  with a friend over a cup of tea, or sitting and looking out the window? You know, it is actually very easy to create such a personal and cosy space. Just put large floor cushions by a window which gets lots of natural light and throw dozens of small  pillows and bolsters, hang a cane lamp, keep a plant on the window sill or on top of a stack of books. And there you have it, your own cosy corner.
