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.

When it comes to home decor, I love abundant use of greys and whites as much as I like a bright and happy colour palette. I feel most at ease in white surroundings with a touch of grey here and there. Even though it is quite an ordeal to keep your 'whites' white in a not-so-clean city like Bombay, I still dare to incorporate whites in the decor at the slightest opportunity. Although grey is something that I haven't laid my hands on yet,  I immensely enjoy  virtual tours of  all the white and grey houses. In the blog world, I have discovered many beautiful Scandinavian blogs where I see white and grey being used so fearlessly in home decor and never looking gloomy or lifeless. A clutter-free, light filled Norwegian wood house with clean lines or a Swedish house where grey plays a key colour in home decor, are so soothing to your eyes. I love the way they capture and play with the natural light in their photography and always manage to make an all white & grey room look inviting, warm and not even a teeny weeny bit boring. 

Do you still think grey is boring!

  1. Truly said. Grey symbolizes elegance. (Atleast to me) Nicelly written. :)

  2. Even I use grey with a hint of color here and there. It is not at all boring. :)
