About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

Make room for everyday lights and fixtures to create an interesting play of luminescence that spreads its magic across your home

The seasonal celebrations call for a renewed décor without necessarily undertaking a major overhaul of your home. In fact, small changes, like experimenting with focal lights, can go a long way in enhancing and transforming the vibe and ambience of your home. The right lighting not only provides luminosity, but also plays a key role in conveying your décor narrative and bringing it to life.

KNOW YOUR LIGHTS

Before you begin, it’s important to acquaint yourself with the different varieties of lights and their unique features to really ascertain the kind that will best suit the requirements of your home. “There are three very important layers of lighting— ambient, accent and task—all of which play crucial roles in a space. Ambient lighting—coves and indirect light—is the general lighting that lends overall illumination to a room. Accent lighting or decorative lighting accentuates an accessory or artwork, while task lighting is specific to a room or function that is being performed, for example, in the kitchen or dining room,” elucidates Priyanka Mehra, principal architect, PS Design.

Décor ideas for him

A man’s got to have his space, even within the home—a refuge that’s suitable for unwinding after a hard day’s work. Here’s a look at how to create a space that is bound to make him happy

GET INTO THE GAME

There’s no space that can be more thrilling and satisfying than a game room that houses all your gaming gadgets and gear. If you’re wondering which part of the house to set up as the gaming room/niche, look to the area near the home theatre, bar, living or dining room. Since this zone is likely to be a tad bit noisy, make sure you employ counteractive solutions to keep the noise levels in check. “Noise levels can increase in game rooms, so use sound insulation panels on the walls. You will also need good lighting to help you make the right move at board games,” say architects Renu and Robin Matharu of Renu Robin Design. Once you’ve got the sound insulation and lighting in place, zero in on all the gaming equipment that you’d like to place here. While doing so, earmark ample space for movement and seating within the room. “Amp up this space with a scoreboard and easy-to-move bean bags or stools, a sports bar and a television to create the perfect gaming zone,” add the duo.
