Comment avez-vous été?
As you can see, I still have Paris on my mind! Many thanks to all those incredible readers who sent in suggestions…I was happily ticking off your recommendations checklist as I went from city to city. I am now back from a brilliant vacation and have dived headlong into home renovations. No better antidote to a vacation’s hangover than having a home full of super enthusiastic workers and a wall full of paint samples!  
Now excusez moi, while I go and round up the enthu patakas (literal translation: enthusiastic firecrackers) and stop them from painting over my light fixtures (true story!). Here are some goodies from Espacio Living for your kind perusal in the meantime…

Au revoir!

(Oh and, I am slowly getting to your emails. My work inbox has taken priority over my blog inbox; so if you wrote to me, you shall hear back…just a tad bit late though) 


  1. I just randomly came across your blog thru a yahoo search. I am so excited and can’t wait to go through all your posts.

    Hilary: Do that Hilary! Daybeds are the best for an afternoon siesta!

  4. Thanks Joanne! 🙂

    So good to hear from your again Constance! I would love to meet up with Noelle if she ever visits Delhi.

    Sunita: Oh wow! And I thought I had the clown bunch! I so wish we could get the DIY paint tools etc in India – it's such a hassle to get work done by some one else

  5. Lovely images! Thanks so much for sharing, I really adore your blog 🙂

  6. Hi Bhavana,
    My friend Noelle may be moving to India. She too is a designer. I'm sending her to your beautiful blog! Hope you are well!


  7. What a great way to get back into the swing of things. Your pierrot seems to have the right idea ;D
    I love this collection of photos … very inspiring. And my sympathies. I have more than a few horror stories of 'enthu patakas' myself. Including the worst-to-date … smashing bathroom tiles and leaving the drainage cover open, inviting a snake in 😛

  8. Lovely images.

  9. welcome back! can't wait to hear more about your trip. this images will hold me over until then, though. they're lovely!

  10. i just love staircase images… what's at the top of those stairs?!

  11. The runner on the stairs is wonderful! I'd love to get an Indian daybed for myself one of these days!

  12. now I'm still living in my parents' house, but someday I want to make a new home and live with my wife. I really love it when I found this blog, because I dream of having a nice house interior design. this blog makes me inspired. Thank you very much

  13. Great feel to the the Mid-East / Moroccan decor. Reminds me of my friends furniture company, Mahogany Tables, based in Lamu.


  14. Great to discover your blog. It's very nice to see Indian interior design and to discover the fusion of Indian decoration, materials and the Persian style niches, shapes and other stuff that I've seen in my visit in Iran. It's wonderful when cultures fuse and create beauty!

  15. ah! rugs, wooden trinkets, warm cosy spaces! a delight

  16. Thanks for dropping by Bhavna 🙂 Glad to hear you had a good time! The images are serious eye candy. Do keep dropping by!

  19. I really like these images, especially the blue walled bathroom (the exact color I want my bathroom walls to be) and the stairway. Oh, I love that stairway.

  20. Gorgeous is the word. Simply gorgeous!

  21. Hey welcome back. Missed your gorgeous posts! What magnificent pics…especially the Tuscan/Italian inspired sink and that room with the long kilim covered corridor and clay pots! To die for!
