Glamorous Pink decor!!!

I have been drooling over this very eclectic, vibrant and  glamorous home ever since i have seen it on Marie Claire maison. This is a house of Mireille fear from Paris drawing inspiration from Indian  kitsch and Bollywood .Who would have thought that just one color  pink would bring in so much of  charm  not only to a room but to a whole house ?

Loved everything in this house , very tastefully done  ,Oh yes , very much Indian inspired !!!

I want to introduce all of you a  multi faceted, an innovative paper artist Anand Prakash who has exhibited his talent through various arrays of stationery and paper art . His work is aesthetically appealing , artistic and uniquely different.   .

His work has been featured in  shows at Paperworld – Frankfurt (Germany) and The National Stationery Show in New York.

Today , his company Anand’z Creation sells  large selection of beautiful stationery and cards, gift items such as journals , office accessories   , etc   within India and abroad.

He  is a well known name in Textiles world and doesn’t need any introduction. He is on every  lifestyle , home decor or  textiles blogs and magazines.  India inspirit was running behind  but as  they say – It’s  better late than never . So , here I am introducing John Robshaw – immensely talented Textiles designer based in New York. His work speaks about his love affair with India and its intoxicating beauty. In his own words “I-Caught-the-Asia-Bug”  John had come to India to find natural indigo dyes for his paintings but  he  instantly fallen in love with India’s  almost 2000-year old precious textile traditions.

In an attempt to merge his international design background  with the skills of Indian craftsmen , he has been developing an impressionable  range  that reflects India's cultural diversity  with the quite stylish and modern twist and thus creating his signature look . His range has an Indian flavor and feelings , colors from soft , neutral to vibrant , designs drenched in ancient royal splendor, completely hand crafted, paying an ode to craftsmanship in India.

I loved the way John  has expressed his passion for work  “By producing my textiles abroad, I get to become a minor character in the lives of the people I work with, and I can take inspiration from what I see and do there. I go to their weddings, celebrate their festivals, I get sick with them, I develop relationships with the people who are teaching me. When you look at my textiles, its like you've been on the world tour along with me."

Would it not be double delight for us when we get to see not only  his work  but a glimpse of his beautiful house . His house is recently featured in lonny magazine .   Here are some of the captivating pics with so much of Indianness.








So beautiful ………
