Stories of two creatives to inspire you this week

Two creators to inspire you this week:

Sheila Berger
New York based painter and sculptor. Love her hand cast project, especially, and am dying to see them all in one big sculpture as she envisions it on her website.
Don't miss a glimpse into all her work here.
And watch this video of her story and process on Portraits in Creativity

Fenny Suter
Her embroidery is vividly imaginative, will take you to other worlds, bringing back that peaceful easy feeling.

See more of Fenny's work on @suterdesignco and website link.

Like me, are you also attracted to work that celebrates man's insignificance before nature?

On another note,
are you planning to visit the Bangkok Art Biennale 2018 and Kochi-Muziris Art Biennale 2018? 
I am lucky to be in Bangkok at this time, and also visiting Kochi by the end of this year, super looking forward to them both!

Hello, and our move to Bangkok

Bangkok has been easy to settle down in.
We were quite, quite rooted in Bangalore, in a nice big comfort bubble. 
A job change for my husband meant the three of us move to the City of Angels... lock, stock and barrel, and now settled in well here.

Home here is a nice spacious apartment in the heart of the bustling city.
Airy and bright, here are a few shots of mornings at home...

"A Freethinkers Prayer Book" by Khushwant Singh is a great, slow read

It is indeed a sunny yellow window!

Fresh orchids from the market, and a bunch of pink faux flowers from Ikea

Roaming around the city on my own is my best past time here so far (until I land a job or embark on some creative pursuit, that is). I'll be sure to share visuals and a record of my city walks with you
 over the coming months.

I have noticed that there's still an abundance of greenery in Bangkok, despite the growing number of skyscrapers and trees giving way to urban jungles.

I try to bring in my share of greens indoors as well. I think plants are the cheapest, and b.e.s.t decor accessory. What do you say?

9 simple, gorgeous Diwali decor ideas

Hello there!

Rounding up some Diwali vignettes I styled and shot for a collaboration with Asian Paints.
I'd been waiting to share these easy DIY ideas you can put to use not just for Diwali, but also for any Indian festival for that matter.

(This time I chose wild, unmanicured gardens over manicured lawns!) What about a basket of roses casually sprinkled over the center table, with glistening drops of water on them? Threw in some gold/brass figurines, warm lighting and a sure conversation starter there.

Dull, warm lighting can enhance gold and silver ware and the gorgeous reflection of tea lights on them. Brought in figurines and flowers to add life to the vignette.

A South Indian Diwali vignette / center table décor. Dusted off those vintage paintings, gold plated diyas, gold jewellery, and my Kerala saree/Kanchipuram silk saree to add shimmer and shine this festive season. Grouped them in a spot with plenty of natural light, and I simply let the vignette take centre stage.

A classic Indian - Mediterranean combo as Diwali center table décor. When it comes to the festival of
lights, the source of light doesn’t really matter. Paired my terracotta diyas with Turkish lamps for a
unique feel to it. You could enhance it with silver elements, flowers and shimmering fabric as the backdrop.

Time to bring out those silver, enamel earrings. And pair them with your silverware and silks for a center piece that glitters, but is not gold. I so love these blue-green Lotus earrings picked up from one of the local bazaars, and I’ve been using them lavishly to infuse some drama in this year’s Diwali vignettes.

This season, local markets are teeming with diyas of all shapes and sizes. It's a good twist to perk up the diya spread interspersing them with quick and easy Rangolis, done using the Rangoli plates which are available in hundreds of beautiful designs.

It's a good ideas to deco up your Puja rooms tastefully this Diwali. Tried this beautiful no-brainer combination of terracota idols with diyas and mud cooking vessels, flowers and silks. Lit up incense sticks and diyas, and this space transformed into a sensory delight.

Here's another easy Diwali décor idea. Jasmine garlands can add instant freshness to your Diwali decor. I mixed in a cocktail of lights and ornaments for some quick, sure-fire magic. A great idea for work-day evenings during the festive season when you hardly have time, but wish your home would transform magically in no time!

Hope you all had a sparkly season. And am sure you too are looking forward to more holidays and festivities until the end of this year!

And here's a video of this post for you to share/save if you liked it:
