The festive season is near us.. I love this time of year. The buzz surrounding parties, weddings and holidays is usually enough to revv up the spirit.
For the new year why dont you shake things in your home around a bit. Say use jewellery or your closet to decorate spaces an make them your own. It adds a personal touch and detailing always has such a big impact on any space!

Another thing that I have noticed is that people don't really maximise the potential that Indian design products and artifacts can have in a home environment. They have the ability to add so much warmth and character to a place. Its definitely an opportunity missed.
