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.

Give your home a luxurious feel

Give your home a plush makeover with these décor ideas

Theme-based setting

Simply royal—if that’s what describes you, then create an opulent setting at home with a Victorian theme. Anjali Goel, Director, La Sorogeeka, recommends the high back bed with silver legs and posts. The bed can instantly transform a bedroom and is perfect for those who want to recreate a rich opulent setting. “These days, people are going all out to turn their dreams into reality and thus, theme-based settings are gaining popularity. This theme is all about exquisite living,” says Goel.

Silver touch

Be it royal furniture pieces, signature accessories or metallic tones—they all add to the luxury quotient of a home. “Silver lends a fabulous dimension to any space; a piece of furniture, vase, an idol or lamp that has silver elements, can easily transform an ordinary space into an exclusive area. Large silver mirrors and photo frames dominate the space and lend a classy look to your home,” suggests Anita Kumari Singh, President, Frazer & Haws.


Carpeted in History

For those who seek opulence, the best way to create a luxurious setting at home is by rolling out a carpet that pays homage to royal history, recommends Angelique Dhama, Head-Marketing, Obeetee. Inspired by the grand antiquity of Mamluk rugs, and the Persian finesse of Tabriz and Sultanabad rugs, the Museum Collection from Obeetee bears testament to the great dynasties that have ruled civilisations. Woven at 300 knots/square inch, using the finest wools in scarlet, rust brown, saffron gold—the likes of these rugs have been laid out at renowned museums.


King-size furniture

According to JJ Valaya, the use of a pair of high back chairs can instantly bring a touch of royalty to an otherwise plain room. For Valaya, Director of The Home of the Traveler, luxury is all about creating a refined balance in a living space. “I like elegance. An elegant space should have a degree of timelessness and plushness as well as an edge, brought in through statement pieces. With the use of chic pop-up artefacts and furniture pieces, you can add exuberance to your space.”
