Zen with zing interiors



Interior Designer-architect: Galo Verdesoto

New York based architect-interior designer Galo Verdesoto’s interiors feel so fresh that I wonder colours of nature breathe inside or outside!

I feel that – a snail, morning sky, seasons and water – are playing right inside these houses.

flowers are chirping here!

Tree glasses

Designer: Snowden Flood

London based designer Snowden Flood is launching few exciting products at the Maison et Objet show in Paris. My favourite is these beautiful printed tree glasses – available as a set of four: Oaks, Firs, Birch Forest and Cherry Blossoms.

Her unmistakable style explores everyday surroundings but the products speak a pleasant, bold & a little uncommon language!

A simple courtyard house constructed with brick and plaster by Studio Mumbai is my favourite. Another thing I appreciate about the architects is that they think process and anonymous workers are important. So they give as much importance to skill of bricklayers, stonemasons and carpenters who have no formal education as to any celebrated architect’s work!
