Warning: Copycats have nothing to do with cats or duplicity, copying someone! It has nothing to with copyright!

It is about similarity, like twins, like Siamese twins, matching objects, about object and furniture that complement each other.

Things that inspire each other.

shower curtain

For those who are excellent bathroom singers but have problems with memory!

Again something for forgetfulness and mostly for paranoia!

The doormat ‘Reminder’ says:


The second one says: IRON, STOVE, WINDOW.

Put inside the door and don’t forget to look down. Or better put on the door itself!

(Don’t you worry- you are not alone -happens with all of us many a times!)



And at last if you are the cheating kind and the kind who feels guilty too!

This wallpaper ‘Glance’ is for you.

Watching eyes to make you constantly nervous!

To green our Conscience and to start a clean SLATE – two greener gadgets – two electricity meters are here to help us.
