Art installations by Pors and Rao, Banglore

October 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

I stumbled on this TED video… (TED videos are amazing if you don’t already know it.do explore them!)  This is about art installations done by the designer duo Soren Pors and Aparna Rao. Its absolutely delightful. And so creative! Love the pygmies. I m new to art installations, never really went beyond the traditional art forms. Although since it got a lot of publicity, I know Damien Hirst and I m not a fan. But this is absoltely great! Check it out.

Their works, as described by the artists themselves, are ‘a personal exploration of subtle unconscious patterns and limitations that influence our behaviours and relationships; and the applied fiction or imaginative logic that makes them seem logical. The resulting work can be idiosyncratic, but still logical on its own terms’.

Home interiors, spaces – III STAIRCASES

A very interesting place is the staircase if you have one. I love it! I ve always envied B’s place where she has a table tucked in below her stairs. Its the most versatile place… evokes a feeling of connection and versatility. Especially the little nook below the stairs… you can be very creative – have a bookcase there, a little seating, sofas, chairs…. anything!

interesting landing!

seating in the nook!

interesting seating in the open landing… use of space.

a staircase full of books on the side…dreamy! i would never get down the stairs…just pick up a book and sit for hours!

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!
