Home Décor is the most challenging aspect of making the space we live ours. With many shops and online sites offering products, it is a nightmare to locate the ones we want without losing the bigger picture. Many times, during my purchase spree, we have landed with items which we never want to use as it does not fit into the idea we have in our mind. On contemplation, we understood the mismatch between the sellers and buyer’s mindset. We arrive at a theme and look around to buy things that match but the sellers are only selling products. This makes a big difference, be it furniture, furnishing or other household items, either offline or online. It has been overwhelming at times since it involves substantial investment of money, time and effort. This is when I stumbled across an online site, Home Canvas, a platform that curates furniture and home decor products from stores, suppliers and artisans from all over the country.
Interior decor makes a building of mortar and bricks to a living space. What if we get an opportunity to make our contemporary Indian Art part of our home integrated so beautifully into our spaces to enhance the looks and go beyond just framed pieces of it on walls here and there as decorative pieces? Living Canvas is such an initiative by Pallavi Goenka and initially we could not really understand how we can make use of art beyond pieces of art on the wall. Thanks to their sincerity in getting across samples of materials they use and its applications in interior decor, we could appreciate the efforts that have gone into this venture.
Interior décor is a big challenge when it comes to kids. It is a different take when compared to the aspects of different spaces in home such as living and kitchen. In one of the discussion sessions with a interior decorator while planning our space, my daughter who was listening to everything suddenly interrupted and said nothing you discussed for my room interests me. On a deeper thought, we understood that she has the right to plan her room the way she wants. Let me tell you, it is easily said than done. We have to think as a kid to understand her interest and see everything through her eyes.
