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.

Decorate your home with Living Coral

Discover the different ways in which you can brighten your home using Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2019, Living Coral

Unsure of how to decorate your home with Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2019? Don’t fret; we’ve got your back! This trendy, popular coral colour can be incorporated in your living space in more ways than one.

White walls, coral condiments

Think your white walls are getting too boring? Try adding some flavour to your home by seasoning it with coral décor. Maybe place a few coral painted stools in your kitchen or use coral curtains to clothe your windows. Alternatively, you can let your feet dance around a little on a coral rug in your bedroom. What’s more, including a coral mantelpiece in your living room is a quick fix to beat the dullness. Perhaps embellish your wall with a painting in coral or adorn a cushion in it; there are plenty of simple yet fun ways in which you can furnish your home with coral without making drastic changes to the interiors.

Coat me coral

If you truly want to bring out the artist in you, go ahead and paint the walls coral! If you are not too confident about this, try painting one of the walls in your bedroom with Living Coral first. Dye part of your wall and leave the rest of it white; this is a modern way to instantly liven up your space. Using wallpapers that have elements of coral in it will pique the interest of your guests.  Don’t be afraid to get creative. Your home often is a reflection of your state of mind and your personality—make sure to select what you are comfortable with.

Classic mix & match

This trick never gets old. Living Coral has a gold undertone to it. As such, it complements shiny shades such as white-gold and brass extremely well. Beautify your house with fancy gold and coral couch cushions. Or perhaps invest in an armchair with gold legs and coral upholstery. Coral, yellow and blue–funk up your home with splashes of these shades across your furniture. On the other hand, give your home a mature appearance by using a combination of rust red and coral-toned couches.

Flower me up

Keep your house fresh and bright with coral carnations, roses or daisies. The colour will bring a smile to your face after a long, tiring day in the sun. Remember, Living Coral is a shade of peach and orange–two colours that have been scientifically proven to fuel creative. Use it in your study or work space at home to feel warm, positive and destressed. Bring out the artist in you and get your brain juices flowing by adding some coral hues here and there.

Happy experimenting!
