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. :)

My husband and I felt that it was about time we needed a short vacation, to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and of course, the stress of work but most importantly the sweltering Indian Summer. We didn’t have to look too far. Along with a couple of friends we spent this much needed break in the lovely and quaint, Kodaikanal.

Apart from the disastrous journey by bus ( Strongly do not recommend this mode of transport to those travelling from Chennai), the weather was AMAZING. Wish I could have stayed for longer – but work beckons. Sigh.

Hope you have a great week ahead.
