All houses are beautiful, but it is the personal touch that makes it a ‘heartistic’ home. Each corner, each accent has a tiny tale to it, an anecdote that gives a sneak peek into the person’s life. To complement our edition this week, here are some beautiful homes and the beautiful people who made it inspiring.
Saanwari Gorwaney, PoppadumArt
Saanwari is the founder and designer of PoppadumArt! This cool and quirky brand makes extremely unique, creative and fun home décor products.
“My prized-possessed or most inspirational piece of home décor is my dining table. This is where I sit and do all my creative thinking. Bombay (Mumbai) didn’t give me an opportunity to decorate a rented house. After a lot of research, I found what I wanted—a door table. When I moved to Delhi, I got the freedom to create it. I went to all the vintage markets in Delhi but all in vain. Hence, I asked a carpenter to make me a bespoke door and a set of chairs (no two chairs are similar in this set.)
“I’ve always felt a connect with Indian art and nature, hence my favourite piece of art in my house is the Tree of Life Gondh painting on the kitchen wall made by Hiraman (an artist from MP). It is extremely serene to just look at it. India is a culture rich country, the art is just beautiful and I love collecting art, it inspires me!”
“My source of inspiration come from the ‘fish painting’ in my living room and my plants. The painting isn’t actually a painting, but a replica printed to be a wrapping paper made in The United States. For me, art is all about having fun and something that pleases you even if it isn’t that costly. For me, it is a source of calmness. Every time I look at it, I am surprised with another detailed patch! I love sitting in that corner of my house with nature elements all around me. These plants it represents silence, growth and patience. A home should be a representation of who you are, and what you want to be.”
James Ferreira, Fashion Designer
James Ferreira is a renowned Bollywood designer and has hosted numerous runway shows.
“My house is my inspiration, the more I see it, the more I want to accentuate it. Living in a heritage inclined area called Khotachi Wadi, James’ house is made with beautiful Manglorian tiles, has a very rustic and vintage feel to it.” What we love about his bungalow is a ceiling filled with beautiful, multicoloured Moroccan lamps, door panes fitted with vintage Parsi borders encased in a glass box.
