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.

How to include water bodies in your home interiors

Be it curios or décor items from your travel, the world is making its way into your living room! We show you how to own this trend

The presence of water in the form of wall fountains and wall waterfalls can lend your home a soothing vibe. Water bodies have indeed become a popular décor option among new-age couples

 

TRADITIONAL URLI POND

For those who don’t want to splurge on artificial water bodies, a simple urli can do the trick. Available in materials like cement, concrete, ceramic, etc and in a range of designs, these can be accessorised with flowers, stones and pebbles once they are filled with water. “The use of urlis dates back to the Mughal Era when water bodies played an important role in beautifying spaces. Urlis work best to create a simple, yet soothing water body,” says horticulturist and landscape designer Satish Mathur.

WALL WATER HANGINGS

For those who have a real space crunch, fountains in the form of wall hangings are a great option. “Wall fountains are effective in sprucing up neglected corners of a house. Ceiling-to-floor water hangings take no space, yet instantly lift up the aesthetics of a room. Most couples opt for this in the bedrooms as it gives them the feel of being closer to nature,” says Rehan Jailis, owner, Green Revolutions.

COURTYARD PONDS AND ARTIFICIAL POOLS

An indoor atrium can instantly look beautiful with a water body and daylight streaming in from a skylight above. “An artificial pool, be it inside or outside, often becomes an aesthetic feature when it is enhanced with underwater lighting, indoor landscaping, designer tiles and various other décor features. For those who have big homes with courtyards, beautiful king-sized pools can be created; but those who don’t have that luxury can go for smaller artificial ponds or pools. However, note that be it an outdoor pond or indoor pool, the water needs to be treated regularly to avoid any water-related problems seeping in,” says Jaideep Anand, general manager of a five-star hotel.
