Evening Wear Handbags

Evening wear Handbags, India.

The last category of our handbags ; filtered from top stores across India is Evening bags (Save the best for the last)

The evening bags have plenty of choices in India as they are easy to make, usually smaller in size and do not require much technical skills!

From Indian Designers like – Ritu Kumar, Rohit Bal etc to International brands like Forever 21, Dior, Bottega etc you will find plenty of choices in India for evening bags.

For Indian wear the best choice has been Indian Designers only but I think the bags from Bottega or Accessorize can do equal justice to your attire.

Be creative when looking for an evening bag as you can go totally wild with them without being a show off!

There are some International brands which deliver to India at an extra cost (shipping and handling and import duty) like Jcrew.com and anthropologie.com

The Trend – I personally think that this category, specially in India is not governed by trend but more by taste.

Still – go for metallic colors, frills and 3 dimensional art work on clutches, welcome!

 

Enjoy!

Check these latest styles in Fall handbags Collection 2010 from Mango & Zara, in stores now.

Design should always be a priority more than brand or Trend! What pleases your eyes and aesthetics is far more important than the brand, thats what I believe and found these lovely handbags while browsing in the stores.

Daywear handbags should be convenient to carry & should be functional without compromising on the quality and design.

The built is the most important part of an handbag, so investing in a good quality leather handbag should always be a priority.

Hand Painted Furniture Styles

I came across some old pieces of furniture while revamping some houses in Gurgaon.

The styles and the shapes were pretty interesting and given my love for antiques I didnt have the heart to throw or discard those pieces.

My team (Interior Decor) and I bought some paints, researched online and ended up painting the furniture which looks amazing now and the owners are pretty happy with the end product too!

In the image above we have the white table we finished for a client and some collection of furniture (not done by me) collected from all over the world.

Go grab some paint and get creative with your old furniture. If you have any questions feel free to write to me.

Work Wear Handbags

Work wear for women, India handbags, what to wear at work, handbags for office

Zara, Double Handle, City Satchel

The category most popular and most required is bags for work which not only need to be stylish but functional too! many a times we end up buying smart polyurethane handbags, which really look good in the beginning but loose luster after a months use. When choosing for work, invest smartly in a leather satchel, tote or a duffle bag which are more expensive than polyurethane bags but have a longer life and they age gracefully.

Some of the choices available in India, Delhi or Gurgaon for handbags for women are –

A plethora of handbags manufacturers and importers have flooded the market, hence a better variety for you guys. I would still recommend an international brand as the design sense and quality is higher with an exception of DaMilano (bags made in India and quite good in quality, though they only use buffalo leather)

HOME DECOR – RECYCLING OLD COOKWARE

ALL POSTS, HOME BEAUTIFUL

antique brass urn, old cooking utensils, interior decor ideas

Found this beautiful urn (cookware) while scourging through my grand father in laws home…

The store was full of these old cooking utensils and I could only grab 2! (going to make another trip soon to the village)

I got the urn polished (using brasso) and cleaned and didn’t know after that what to do with it.

My love for plants and greenery around the house came to my rescue when I had this philodendron’s (cheese plant’s)  stalk cut for aesthetic reasons, and didn’t feel like throwing the branch.

Voila, not only  I have a unique urn which is an antique but also a beautiful way to salvage my plant’s cuttings..

happy happy joy joy

Interior Decor – Accent chair

Gurgaon, HOME BEAUTIFUL, SHOP LOCAL

Finished designing and upholstering this chair for a client last week.

Thought will share with you guys too. I picked the fabric from Muslin on MG road, http://www.muslin.in/

I worked with my furniture maker to make this contemporary chair for the bedroom. We used 7 Meters of fabric for this chair and about a week to finish this. Let me know what you think?

We are now proceeding to designing sofas for the home, and its fun to check out the fabric options in India.

Check back for more images.
