India Design ID 2017 – Decor Inspiration Special

February 28, 2017
India Design 2017_6

Art is everywhere. Be it in fashion, in make up, at a place, architecture or even architectural design. I have often come across fashion ‘mood boards’ and have read many articles on the ‘Trends Of The Season’. That’s what pretty much sums up my feed annually. But this time, I decided to venture into an area which boasts about art in the way we live. If you happen to be a fan of floral prints on your midi skirt, then you’ll equally fall in love with a particular set of Floral Sofa Chair Cum Ottoman. India Design ID has been celebrating living artistically since half a decade now, which is why their 5th edition of the annual exhibition had to be a bigger and better expression of the whole concept.Β Right from collaborating with ELLE DECOR India and Sunil Sethi Design Alliance to hosting ID Symposium for the inspiring artists, this year’s 5th edition of India Design ID 2017 was a grandeur of excellence indeed. Soaking up some inspiration to re-style my home and work space and of course, grabbing a few trends that I can adapt in my sphere of style, here’s a glimpse of design marvels that I came across at India Design ID 2017. Take a look! The trends that caught my attention? Color blocking, Aztecs, Kitch, Metallic, Wild Flora and Oriental Patterns.Β The idea behind ID Exhibit is to bring forward best decor brands and eminent speakers from across the globe on one platform to celebrate design, creativity and aesthetics through installations and discussions. Commenting on the initiative, Gaurav Mashruwala, CEO, Ogaan Media Pvt. Ltd. Β says, “This year we celebrate 5 years of India Design ID and over this time period, it has not only become the country’s premier design celebration but has very effectively changed the definition …

As Barney from How I Met Your Mother says to SUIT UP, I thought why not turn a boring Suit into something of a fashion statement? πŸ˜‰ With a mix of grey, mint, fuchsia and emerald….I created this look : Sometimes breaking the monochrome and the obvious is fun….right? πŸ˜‰ What all I added? A Grey Plain Blazer (color suggested by Anika) Angelina Jolie’s famous Raw Cut Emerald Earrings Classic Diane Von Furstanberg Nude Pumps My favorite Bottega Veneta Fuchsia Clutch I created custom made mint trousers with a darker waist region to make it stand out from the white shirt. So this is my way of SUITING UP!! What is yours? πŸ˜‰ P.s. your comments are precious to me…do not fret to say what’s on your mind πŸ˜€

Monochrome Ensemble made Quirky!!

April 25, 2012

I gave a basic monochrome ensemble to my Kalapalette Facebook girls and asked them to suggest…HOW TO COMPLETE THIS BASIC OUTFIT!! While Amrita Balaji suggested to add Yellow Color to this outfit, Pallavi Pande suggested “WIGS” I had a deep thought about it and  VOILA We had a QUIRKY TWIST OF MONOCHROME ENSEMBLE!! Wanna know what all I chose? Yellow Bib Necklace by KATE SPADE This statement piece is alone good enough to hold up an neutral outfit.It brings contrast to an ensemble, and I thought why not use it to make the monochrome dress more SPRING PERFECT? πŸ˜€ Purple Wig This electric addition to more crazy style statement is something which will really make many heads turn. πŸ˜‰ If you fear getting your hair colored, why not try one of these amazing wigs, to look fashionable, with something unique and a new hairstyle to try on πŸ˜‰ Yellow Studs The key to wearing a statement piece is adding minimalism accessories or no accessories, so I have added a very basic stud earrings pair, to be a part of the look and not steal the limelight of the statement neck piece. πŸ˜€ Dark Blue Multifacet Ring by Lucas Jack London Totally loving this asymmetrical ring, quite artistic and elegant at the same time.Although to suit my outfit I changed the color of the glass from Blue to Purple. Jimmy Choo Yellow Wedges Well don’t need to say anything about the Jimmy Choo footwear, as they speak volumes about STYLE!! These wedges will help the long dress get some surface above floor,letting the person to walk freely!! Thought for a cause eh! Christian Louboutin Purple Suede Cube Wristlet Clutch If someone says FASHION HAS NO BOUNDARIES WHEN IT COMES TO CREATIVITY….I indeed agree!! This clutch is a bundle of joy and style statement in itself.This …

To start with I have created a custom made Red Minnie Mouse Inspired Mini Dress with polka and red!! Well I thought christmas is always “CUTE” but why we shouldn’t go with something “Ravishing” πŸ˜‰ So to team this up with, I just picked up one ornament which does not require any other collaboration : St. Erasmus Necklace Well he is the same guy who got famous when Michelle Obama wore his neck piece in a meet. Isn’t that super cool? ^_^ Anyways to continue with the theme look…. I randomly searched the MINNIE HEADBAND These are super cute already that I did not feel like re-touching them. πŸ˜€ Next since it is winter season, we ought to have stockings at least.And what better than having custom made Christmas special stockings?

I am so sorry that there has been a delay in my Sunday Surprise post…my illness is keeping me low for a while.But from sadness apart, here is a little treat for you all πŸ˜‰ Their are plenty of shapes and patterns we come across in almost anything and everything.This Sunday Surprise I thought of “GOING BACK TO BASICS AND EDGY” and by edgy….I really mean edgy!! So this Sunday Surprise THEME IS : TRIANGLES I have created a graphical look for the same below :  It took me a lot of time to put these pieces in together, sorry for amateur presentation, but this is the best I could create with my Migraine attack on Well, I took up a Salvatore Ferragamo’s collection look and transformed the blazer into an EDGY TRIANGLE TREAT! Since nowdays the trend for Neon Shades is on, I added a very bright palette.Because I never present just one piece of item, I collaborated the look with 4 edgier items πŸ˜‰ 1. Triangle Leather Necklace by LEIF This neckpiece is really very edgy, simple to make *might do a DIY* and will go perfectly well with my custom made blazer Since they have loads of neon colors to choose from, you can go for your favorite of all, or the better…blend few triangles into one chain πŸ˜‰ 2.Custom made Triangle Gold Earring This is a trial by me, a sober gold triangle earring, which will cover your ear fully, the top edge will have a hook which will go behind your ear to give support, and the 2nd support will come on the earlobe for normal   screw attachment. 3.Pebble Golden Metal Interlocking Triangle Bangles by Brand Alley These interlocking bangles are EDGY and CHIC! Since there is too much color going on the look, minimal gold …

I met her blog accidently due to someone who had stolen her art and given to a famous website called “STARDOLL”…but thanks to that girl that i ended up meeting such an inspirational figure….KATHRYN ROGERS and her blog named PAPERFASHION….I fell in love with her art instantly,I remember the 1st ever illustration of hers which I saw was BIRD OF PARADISE I simply loved what she had put up on her canvas…they were delicate,colorful but elegant…full of life and simply “AWESOME”….this really glued me to be a regular to her blog and soak in loads of inspiration from her.,, I even kept account of her personal blogging which showcased her timely posts about her room..her encounters in life and so on….This led me to follow her to Facebook and I came to know her even better.I followed each and every illustration of hers so far.Such talented people really boost up your inner soul to go forward and do something…..She has inspired me alot and made me pull up my sleeves to do something myself. Whenever I get time I simply go through her artwork.Her signature style of leaving flow of pen around her illustrations…the swirls which flow out…the rough skeleton leftovers which are visible at some portions…All this makes the illustration stand out at KATHRYN ROGER’S creation…I simply love them. If I look at her designs dating back to 2009 and now…she has turned into a true artist.Her earlier illustrations are clean and don’t leave room for roughness.They are clean and crisp. But her work now is all speaking about HER.The wild flow of rough lines running through her illustration…let us know about her free spirited ARTFORM. I remember the time I interacted with her for the 1st time.Though it was a limited conversation but I was so overwhelmed.You know the …
