What is the core brand idea?

‘New Living’ relates to new practices or ways of living, that is an answer to the challenges and aspirations of contemporary living. It denotes a progressive and optimistic approach to design for everyday activities and interactions within the home.

Whom is the furniture designed for?

Why the same Script?

The thought behind this is the ability to script or create, to choreograph or to compose your activities and experiences within the home space.

What are the fabrics used to curate the collection?

We do not have a specific type or genre of fabric. The objective is to continuously innovate and create better and intelligent designs for our consumers who aspire a finer lifestyle.

How does Script remove the issue of shrunken urban spaces this issue while maintaining the aesthetics of the space?

Script products are designed in a way that they consume less space by using them is a multi functional way, while elevating the aesthetic quotient of the surrounding. For example our sofa named Let Harbor site literally is your anchor, as its comfortable seating remains comfortable no matter how long you spend time on it. With a headrest on either side, it not only permits but also encourages you to lie sideways, with your legs draped over the armrests.

The Sinewy Dining Table extends from a four seater to a six seater, ensuring you always have room for more-more dinner guests, more projects and more time together!

There is a bed that makes work from home a joyful experience without getting out of bed as Lagoon’s many features (from a large storage bench to a laptop tray to the tiny clothes peg) ensure everything you need is at arm’s length.

 Encourage curiosity:

-> The store is designed such that is reveals just enough to generate the intrigue        without revealing everything about the store.

-> Also the elements used through out the store are so unique that there’s always the need to know more about the same – be it the materials used or design itself. 

The Brass story:

-> Godrej has a rich heritage in the brass, right from the early days of the locks and continuing with this tradition brass has been used subtly through the store.

-> The Terrazzo floors in the store are made by pouring concrete mixed with the brass dust and caps  which was but the dust from the locks division.

-> The brass story continues in the little brass strips used in the racking fixtures or the grommets in the ground.

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

Empower and Enrich:

-> The store is very intuitive to go through and helps spend a lot of time discovering the products very simply.

-> Right from the wide ramp that can be stretched for the people who have difficulty in using the staircase to the displays in the store using simple fixtures that are able to both house various categories and create visual partitions through the store the design thinking makes the store journey both easy yet keeps consumer engaged as the products reveal themselves around the corner.

*It has very nice customisable fixture system, which is very versatile to accommodate any type of category to be display.

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

The Brand Immersion area:

-> The ground floor of the store is dedicated to explaining the brand philosophy.

-> The exhibit has the prototypes of the furniture with their back stories.

-> It is a interactive area which talks about the DNA of the brand, the design thinking that goes behind the brand, showcasing how the designers think, materials designers use. It’s the introduction to the world of script.

Goa welcomed Mumbai’s popular interiors design store- Vaishnavipratima on 14 September 2018. Located in the heart of North Goa; a ninety year old Portuguese influenced four thousand sq.ft. spacious Goan villa is now home to the gorgeous studio. Specializing in Indianized artifacts, furniture, interior design and for the first time- fashion by Prama and Bhavaa  jewellery; the studio is named after its founder- Vaishnavipratima (popular interior designer and artist).

The collection and style of the second Vaishnavipratima- Signature Collection is more suited to Goan houses and its people as it simultaneously retains its design sensibility of celebrating Indian art. Unlike its Mumbai flagship; outdoor furniture, designer beds, dining tables, premium designer wear by Prama (chanderi sarees and Indo-western outfits by Pratima Pandey) and Bhavaa jewellery  comprising of semiprecious gemstone collections are notable additions to the Goan store. Both Prama and Bhavaa share similar aesthetics and ethos with those of Vaishnavipratima of Indian designs and art. The store also boasts of an entirely new furniture and furnishings line (distinct from its Mumbai store) each specifically designed to suit large open Goan houses and its local hospitality industry.

Gorgeous bougainvilleas adorn the large wooden doors, windows and roof of this heritage villa. The store overlooks a lush green patch complete with palms and its newest outdoor furniture range alongside a water body of rare violet lotuses. The entrance is warm and welcoming as the furniture at first sight reveals the brand’s journey over the last couple of years.

The first room of the villa consists of beautifully handcrafted furniture pieces that are strikingly fused into two diverse color tones: subtle pastels and chunky bright pop colors. These include mirrors, chests of drawers, consoles, book shelves, bar units, wing chairs etc that are all made by Indian artisans. Pop art dining couture and various artists’ works are on display in the second room. The third room is the siesta corner- comprising of an elaborate four poster bed with cushions, throws and rugs passionately developed in the current and possible next year’s Pantone color tones. One can see Shibori and block-printing art in various palettes here. The intimate open café area is in the passage and back foyer of the villa and will soon serve exotic teas and bites. Vaishnavipratima Goa will be introducing exquisite lightings and conducting art workshops as well.

Vaishnavipratima says, “Within a few months of opening my flagship store in Mumbai in June 2016 I had a secret wish of opening my second store soon. Seeing its success, expansion was only natural and nothing better than a heritage Goan villa! Moreover, post intensive market research and the current lifestyle changes, Goa seemed like the ideal place for my designs. It is after all known as a ‘Tourist’s Paradise!”

It’s been happening for years and years that people are still struggling to lose weight be it, belly fat or overall body fat. People still jump from one crazy diet to another. We never give importance to little habits we have which can make a big difference. As correctly say by someone, ‘Fitness is not a period, its a lifestyle and a life long discipline.

Everyone is built in certain ways with their unique characteristics.

Biggest problem in today’s world is people are running after getting that so called photoshopped perfect body.

I would only say except yourself and your body. Nurture and polish you own. Be your best self. Be healthy. But we never understand that nothings gonna work until there will be calorie deficit in their diet and controlling blood sugar and insulin level, so that body can maximise fat burning for energy. Its all about a heathy lifestyle and your choices. Its a discipline you need to adhere and make a part of your daily routine.

Instead going too deep lets see what we can do to lose fat or simply keep ourself fit in our day to day life by adding few things which is always at our reach.

Laila Fathima is a sweetheart. Loves to cook and you will have a lovely time spending at her cafe. She often visited GOA for holidays and fell in love with the place like many of us. Her love for Goa was strong enough to make her leave the corporate career and she finally followed her passion and stared her cafe in GOA. In the beginning she started only home deliveries of Biriyanis and few Hyderabadi specialities. I met her then and now it’s so inspiring to see her in her own cafe.

She cooks her heart out everyday and serves flavourful dishes. Everyday is a different menu and they serve only lunch.

It is in the Anjuna Vagator road.

What we ate –

* Mutton Haleem – I tried it for the first time. It has a porridge consistency with mutton and cereals cooked together and then mashed. It’s a healthy & filling dish. Muslims prefer to include in their food menu while fasting to keep them going for the day.

* Mutton Biryani – Biryani was simple yet flavourful.

* Baghaare Baingan – This Hyderabadi dish stole my heart. Peanuts, coconut and different spices cooked to make a thick gravy and brinjal is cooked in that. I loved it. Very spicy and had a unique taste.

* Shahi Paneer – 👍🏼👌🏼

* Chole Masala – 👍🏼👌🏼

* Lachha Paratha – 👍🏼👌🏼

* BangolorianGhee Rice – 👍🏼👌🏼

IMG_8267

Wednesday the 30th of May,18. Embassy Of Peru

Attended an event hosted by the Embassy of Peru celebrating the 1st Anniversary of the Art Gallery of the Embassy of Peru 🇵🇪. It was also the 1st anniversary celebration of INPEFA – Indo Peruvian Friendship Association. They inaugurated the rich tapestries of Peru.
The fun and informative cocktails event was attended by media and special guest invited. I was amazed by the conversations about the rich Peruvian art, culture, food and textiles.

Officially the ‘Republic of Peru’ is a country in western South America. It is bordered in the north by Ecuador and Colombia, in the east by Brazil, in the southeast by Bolivia, in the south by Chile and in the west by the Pacific. Peruvian region was home to several ancient cultures, including the ‘Norte Chico Civilisation’ in the 32nd century BC, the oldest civilisation in the America.

Peruvian Culture has major roots of Amerindian and Spanish traditions, which is also influenced by various Asian, African and other European ethnic groups. Peruvian artistic traditions date back to the elaborate pottery, textiles, jewelry, and sculpture of ‘Pre-Inca’ Cultures. [ Know More About Inca Culture ] Peruvian literature is rooted in the oral traditions of pre Colombian civilizations. Spaniards introduced writing in the 16th century; colonial literary expression included Chronicles and religious literature. Peruvian Food is inspired from Amerindian and Spanish with strong influences from Chinese, African, Arab, Italian and Japanese cuisine.

I was amazed to see the unique textiles and handicrafts of Peru. And it was such a delight to see a lot of similarities with the art and textiles from the north east of India.
It is so fascinating to witness such diverse cultures and geographic distance still so much similarities.
Cheers! to the Indo Peruvian friendship.
