Kaleidoscope of Design

Its been a while. I know.

I feel guilty but I also know now that writing a blog is not as easy as it seems. Fast forward to a lot of deep thought and consideration – I’ve decided to create another blog – with the sole focus on decor/design. Life*Love*Decor was primarily my outlet for writing and sharing a passion for interior design. It was my first foray into the Blog-sphere. But snippets of information, will not a blog make.

So, while I do feel sadness at ending Life*Love*Decor (by no means deleting it), I am excited to share my new blog  – Kaleidoscope of Design, with you.

When you do have the chance – take a peek at it. It features my take on design/decor/art and maybe even sound(songs/artists).

Thank you to the few who followed this blog and appreciated some of the posts – I hope you join me at Kaleidoscope of Design!

With Love.

For the love of Spray Paint

DIY Ashtray/ Pot Holder

I have a newfound  obsession – Spray Paint. This past month brought out a long-time hidden passion of DIY.

A new stationary store had opened near my home and I wasted no time in paying it a visit. Oh the joy of discovering rows and rows of DIY kits and accessories – I. was. mesmerized.

I didn’t want to get too carried away and burn a hole through my wallet – so I picked up a few painting essentials and of course, dull Gold and copper spray paint.

Here’s a quick snapshot of my first project or as I would like to call it,‘’transformation’’.

PS: If any of you readers are Spray Paint pros, please do share your projects with me – would love to feature your work. :)

A sweet and eclectic Mumbai home

When Ranjani Iyengar got married and moved to Mumbai 2 years ago she was faced with the task of designing and styling her brand new home. A task that may seem daunting in many ways to some, became her ‘dream come true’.

Ranjani, a close friend of mine, is one of the most creative souls I have ever met. As founder and owner of a leading creative company, Pink Whistle Man, her sense of style is quirkly, neat and ethnic all mixed in one. This is clearly reflected in her home. Here’s a sneak peek of Ranjani’s lovely and vibrant home.

To New Beginnings

Hello Dear Readers,

I hope you all had a great start to 2015. I’ve had a fabulous time so far. :)

I am so excited to share that I will be starting an all new Home Tours section for LifeLoveDecor. Those who know me well, know that I am obsessed with houses, and all things decor. Having seen beautiful homes on blogs like Design Sponge and Inside Outside, I have always wanted to share homes that are beautiful to me.

So look out for my new post on Home Tours. I do hope you’ll like it.

Happy New Year!

A Very Merry Christmas

Hello Dear Reader, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas in whatever part of the world you are in.

I for one, had a fabulous Christmas at my Parent’s home in Vellore. This year we had one more addition to our family, our Golden Retriever puppy, Czar. There were many failed attempts at dressing him up in a Santa Hat and Reindeer Ears – Hopefully he’ll come around next year. :)

The best part of Christmas for me, is spending time with the family and we always have the most fun during a meal, around the table. I am still stuffing my face with my mother’s delicious Christmas Cake (a traditional Portuguese recipe).

So, just popping in to wish you all a wonderful Christmas – one filled with Love & Peace. :)
