HAPPY HOME DAY MOM

September 09, 2016

It’s time you celebrate, she who you see before the bright sunshine would pour on your face. Who makes all fears and challenges look small. This is the woman who gave you life, wiped your tears and made you smile. Yes Mother’s Day is right round the corner. Yet another day  to say ‘thank you’ to our hardworking moms.

To celebrate the day in a more lavish fashion we have brought you some of our unique pieces that are sure to bring a  smile on your beloved mother’s face.

CARVED 'SIDES' FOR SMILES

OVOID COFFEE TABLE SET

Here are some great options to freshen up the living room. These stunning wooden artworks become a rest for a stack of books, a hot mug of coffee, a lamp or anything your mom would love to have besides her when she cozied up at night. With loads of  designs available you surely are spoilt for choice.

COMFORT OF THE QUILTS

They say there is no better place to sleep other than your mother’s lap, but ever thought where the best place for a mother to sleep is? It’s on a comfortable and warm quilt. We bring you a line-up of patterns, colourful prints and designs to make the living space more than just beautiful. From faint to bright we bring you a grand collection to choose from.

DINE TO DELIGHT

For a mother a dining table is not just associated to a table on which we have food, it’s a lot more than that. You playing hide and seek under the diner, she making you do the homework, you making the fuss over food and milk and many more things are what she associates that diner with. Rejuvenate those memories by bringing home a dining table that is not just stunning in looks but also a pleasing reminder of those memories.

SWAYING WITH ELEGANCE

Every piece of furniture is a flashback of hundreds of memories for you and in the case of your mom its thousands. So just throwing away that furniture might be a great deal for your mom. Upholstery is a great way of reviving that vintage furniture, new and attractive fabrics will bring that vintage furniture back to life with those memories yet intact.

In India, Colors have always been interwoven with Indian traditions and heritage since time immemorial. From symbolic colors worn, to those for festivals. How does a ‘traditional’ scenario adapt to trendy colors when we talk of a new India, in step with the world? Globally, Color forecasters pick up trends from the happenings in society which inevitably affect people. They also pull information from a variety of sources and piece it together. Always keeping their antenna alert, searching for whats hot, whats new.

For 2016 we find ourselves at a unique crossroads in time where we can see the advantage both of tradition and also of modern innovation. Digital and modern techniques are here to stay but we look for inspiration from the past to be able to design for the future. Looking Both Ways – with Cherished Gold being identified as the color that best connects all the keys trends for the year. This theme of duality is the driving influence for 2016, according to the Colorfutures team at Akzo Nobel. Freedom Tree’s founder, Latika Khosla is one of the leading design and color experts who develop these ideas at the Global Aesthetic Center.

DARK & LIGHT

An OCHRE GOLD as the color of this year is also a color easy to bring into Indian homes. The trend leans towards warmer metal tones. If we look to the past, a patina gold from ancestral paintings and the aged luster of glass, is the inspiration. A hint of the metallic gold can be brought into the interior on décor objects; an aged mirror frame or a gently lustrous hammered lampbase. The intent is to keep the metallic gold influence subtle and chic when bringing it into contemporary homes.

OFF THE GRID

We increasingly seek the appeal of going ‘off grid’ in order to find oneself in the modern world. Digital dependence values the chance to produce something physical and tangible. We need boundaries in which to live, even if we seek to rebel against them; freedom is only understandable within the context of a framework. When OCHRE GOLD is bright enough to attract attention, we could use it as a solid color statement in contrast with balancing hues. Unexpectedly in the modern context, ochre combines beautifully with a trend of pastel colors. The refreshing energy that immediately gets noticed. For a smooth transition, these pastel tints of peach, sage green, duck egg blue are held back by black and white grids and geometries that are simple.

The Great Indian Wedding is really only an excuse for a long party. Extending over many days (dare I spell it daze) in a mellow haze with friends and loved family. The good feeling spills all around. And while you may focus on the two or three days of events, and are confident that the locations and planner are taken care of there is one thing forgotten! ……the party starts well before the set wedding date…..and right in your home. Having gone thru my daughters wedding just a few months ago, let me share how to let this be one of the most enjoyable gatherings at home.

Guests come home at all times of the day, and friends of the young couple come to hang around and even stay over! On any given morning, while one set is having breakfast, another is just going to bed!

To let you know which side of the day is up, to keep that sense of normalcy, here are some tips.When the air is scented with song make sure it is also fragrant with flowers. Flowers are a visual and sensorial treat and take the celebration up many a notch. Make use of the seasonal flowers, or palms and leaf fronds to make the home welcoming a celebration. Arrange flowers in bowls or topiary arrangements to make them less fussy.

Keep to the hue. If working with whites place them in aqua vases and or woven wicker for a more natural look. Marigolds are such a color statement that they are best kept contained in natural wood, or glass bowls for smart daytime entertaining.

Amplified color. For people at a wedding, the jostle of color sets the expectation of good times. To anticipate this, lay a cool table for smart dining with just beautiful color pop mix. The dining table is like the central hub at home during pre- wedding days. Vivid color stirs the appetite for enjoyment. Just don't fuss with place settings. People eat as and when they are ready. So be prepared with simple colorful woven cotton tablecloths, and brilliant napkins to tease appetites.

GATHERING AROUND A COLORFUL TABLE

Match Made by Mixing. Weddings today show up the most unusual mingling of folks. College mates get married. Friends and family come from across the world in a happy mix of nationalities. I just attended the wedding of a batch-mate from design school. Herself a Sikh married to a Syrian Christian and their son getting wedded into a NY Jewish Family.

TABLE SETTINGS

People revel in the differentiation; old friends are reunited and many new friendships forged. In much the same way, a mix and match of place settings is par for the course at a wedding home. The multitude of shapes and sizes, platters and colors, just adds to the joyous medley. To keep it somewhat homogenous, decide to stick to a color palette. Keep it fresh with blues and greens for a cool brunch and then hot pinks and red for a cracking dinner.

Smooth Spirit. Every wedding moves along smoothly on spirits that are liquid too! With all the singing and dancing, parched throats need to be served. I would keep dozens of glasses ready to run the sequence from water to rehydrating juices, cocktails and mock tails. Bringing the glasses in on large trays stacked with napkins and coasters, made these self-sufficient bars. Keeping the mood relaxed, glassware in softly tinted shades really made the party goers look at the world through rose tinted glasses.
