Artsy Products: IndiaCircus - A Flamboyant Celebration of India

 I love unabashed Indian-ness with a contemporary twist.
Among the many recent India-inspired brands, India Circus sure is a favorite! No doubt that with designs inspired by Mughal royalty to the roadside chai, their growing product line of decor and personal accessories appeal hugely to the urban Indian.

I have begun to mute myself to over-the-top use of loud colours and truck signs on products ranging from teacups to handbags to furniture - and which are mostly over priced.
In that sense, IC is a smart departure from loud to chic, contemporary, and it is easier on the wallet.

Indian + Artsy + Quirky + Affordable... sure gets my thumbs up.

So when I receive these products from India Circus I am more than glad to give a shout-out here on the blog in return!

Chirping birds on this set of glasses wins my heart over. The size is just right...

And it comes packed in a well-designed box. Hoot hoot!

And this multi colored wallet is a winner with its ample space to tuck in your phone, cash, cards... works perfect for my purpose.

Be sure to check the range of home decor accessories on the IC website. A special mention to the wall art collection, and the new curated loot, especially Jodi the apparel brand.
And like I did, you could also subscribe to their mailing list to keep track of what's new and not-to-be-missed.

(PS: All photos shot by me at my sunny home in Bangalore. Special thanks to my kantha-work cushions which acted as well-behaved props... they are from the local market ;)

7 Decor Trends that Do Not Appeal to Me

Popular abstract art is something I have mixed opinions about. Some of them look real lovely, and I would buy one if, only if, I knew the meaning behind it or the inspiration behind it.

Which got me thinking of some popular decorating trends...

After having seen tons of images on blogs and on Pinterest over the past couple of years, I have decided that some of these trends are not for me. They are beautiful by themselves, and probably look great on someone else's home. To each, his/her cup of tea, right!

Simply put, if these were pages in a book, I'd shut it and reach for another one ;-)

1. All Whites or Pastels. Too dainty for my taste. Not even for a little girl's room.

2. Uptight furniture
Thankfully the rug softens up this space
3. Way too craftsy DIY decor
Button embellishments and all
4. Overdoing 'traditional' in a modern apartment. Too much of brass (one in every vignette) for instance. Heavy, carved wooden furniture in small apartments. All just to bring in the desi look.

5. Everything in place. An artistic/aesthetic mess ought to find a place in every room I say.

6. Gold overdose. Gold and copper is definitely in these days. Gold-dipping appears to be the DIY of the year. But this?

7. Awesome eye candy, impractical furniture. The semicircle seater in the pic above, for instance.

What do you think? 
Are there any popular decor trends you beg to disagree with? Eager to know.

(Oh yes, blogging after a short break since I got into a new day job recently. It sure feels good to be back here in my sunny nook! :-)
