Akila Chungi Pottery

Tuesday, 26 November 2013

Blogs help people meet people- true story. This has happened to me several times over the last few months now and its a fantastic way to connect. They/people like the same things as me and some are so good with what they do- it's truly inspiring. 
So Akila Chungi walked into my blogger life one day and showed me around her work. One word- Amazing! Akila specializes in ceramics that are a visual treat and joy to use. I have seen each one of her products in detail and even bought a few - fell in love instantly.

"Influenced by the issues arising within myself and around me, my works in clay are quite a symbolic representation of the thoughts I desire to address. My work also converse of a vernal metamorphic mind that has devoted itself to a freshly discovered passion, with each creation bearing either a speck of a thought or a whole deluge of perception"- Akila Chungi

Colours and Cousins

Friday, 22 November 2013

Yay! it's the weekend.Hence, I'm taking you far far away to Mexico. Consider it a little break. Sometimes, I feel the colours and styles are so similar and so Indian- it's almost like they are cousins who are raised in different continents. What I like the most, is the subtle white interiors contrasted with bright cushions, rugs and the other accessories.

Sometimes, the most obscure things look amazing. Here's why!

different=out of the ordinary
out of the ordinary= pleasing to the eye
hence proved that its amazing!

you might not agree with me and my theory till you see for yourself. I'll let you decide.

Old Good Things

Monday, 11 November 2013

Announcement: All the fortunate people who live in NY- this post is a treat. 

I stumbled upon this store while I was searching for the some pancakes and coffee; only to realize they have a bunch of them around the city. My blog is 9 months old now and during this courtship, you should have figured me and my love for old things. Imagine my excitement when I land in a store called "old good things" with a ton of old things reused to create some of the most fascinating furniture your space will house - I did sh-reek and hold my hands up on my mouth like Miss World {no that didn't happen guys, very close though}. Anyways, lets go back to decor, the point I was trying to make is - this stuff is amazing. Very inspiring for us unfortunate souls, who don't live in NY. Hopefully, we can make our own furniture.

figurines and wall art
anchor chains that have been reused for a coffee table, lamp, side stand

tin ceiling panels found in most New York buildings restored/painted and reused as mirror frames and wall art

if you live in NY and want to buy any of these here's the address

.....after all the Diwali madness and colours and the flowers and the mithais (sweets/deserts); I thought it would be nice to take a break; sit back, relax and work with some soothing white decor. Just while I was thinking that, I found this lovely house here.
