Cloud city at The Met, NYC

October 22, 2012 § 2 Comments

Cloud City – installation on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY.

Tomás Saraceno’s piece is currently installed on the roof of the Met Museum and I had the chance to look at it. (i.e, while visiting the museum, the full post on that will be put up after I load the pictures) It was my very first experience with installation art of any kind. This particular piece was very much amusing to look at or even be inside… they have timed tickets and 15 people are let in at a time. It is like a a cluster of geometric chunks. Rather, the reflective sides show chunks of very different spaces around. One will reflect central park, the other will reflect 5th Avenue, some next to it will reflect the sky above and one will invariably reflect you. It is most definitely a fun piece to watch. Especially at the time of sunset. Grab a drink and take a stroll on the roof.

I, for one, loved the view from the top instead. The sun shining through cracks in the urban jungle and falling on the treetops of Central Park. Fall in its full glory!

Me and him. And the others in the back!

Home interiors…spaces – I

September 28, 2012 § 5 Comments

Two things… Firstly, I am a complete sucker for anything to do with buildings. I love them. Interiors, design, home decor… obsessed.              Secondly, i love this blog by the famous Mr. Michael Mundy… An afternoon with    where he visits people in their spaces. He clicks the most beautiful pictures. Take a look later.

So I was in my routine browsing session on the internet where I save pictures that I like. (but of course everyone does that)And I love some of them so much, the ideas, the design, colors, I wanted to share them with you.

I find I gravitate towards minimalist spaces. Especially the kinds with light colored walls, simple design, open, very functional. I always feel the space you live in affects you a lot. It goes both ways. The space picks up your essence over time and you start to feel it too. It gives you a vibe. And I dont mean in the vaastushastra/ feng shui way. (I am not a big fan of that.)  Design is of utmost importance! Also, every space should be personal. It should have a character. I know some people who let their spaces remain kindof…sterile. No personal touch, unproductive.Flat and stagnant. When I come across such places I feel horror. Even a misplaced sweater adds a touch!

Here is a selection of images for the living room that I really like…

Lots of frames and a white wall.

a creme look… and smart decor.

big windows and lots of light , a collection of objects that make it interesting

low height furniture, again, lots of light

a dash of colour, red curtains, colored carpet, wooden floor

simple and minimalist!
