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.

As John Robshaw says, "When you look at my textiles, its like you've been on the world tour along with me." And when I got a sneak peak into his new Manhattan apartment, I felt the same. It is a house of much travelled collector of all things beautiful. And in the ensemble of those pretty things, there is a John Robshaw touch. When I admire a designer's work, I sub-consciously long to see how his/her house is (such is my madness for interiors)...like how he lives, what colors he has chosen for the walls, the bed linen, the artworks, the kitchen....And wherever his personal taste is reflected. So you can imagine how delighted I must have been, when I found Elle Decor's edition online carrying the photographs of John Robshaw's two-bedroom New York apartment. His long association with India and other Asian countries is reflected in the fabrics, dhurries, crafts and the overall decor of house. It exudes warmth and has a lived-in feel to it. I was too happy to see how the Indian mooda (stool made of coir fibre) has been used as a side table in the living room and to stack books on in the study (I do the same). Of course, all the fabrics and upholstery that you see in this house is by him only and I have been in love with John Robshaw Textiles, for a while now.  Now I will leave you alone to feast your eyes on John Robshaw's beautiful house (and don't forget to google his images if you haven't seen him yet!)
The antique chandelier and the statue are from India : )
I simply love the desk and the color of the walls. The vintage rug is  from India again.
Did you spot the Ikat throw on his gorgeous blue bed? And you couldn't possibly have missed the upholstered headboard!
