the striking cover immediately grabs your attention. And you pick your Design Today without hesitation for the next 30 days until the next issue. But we seemed to have kept it and ourself inspired for more days now. It’s already November but today we are reviewing Design Today October issue. After going through it we found ourselves looking for and observing how light behaves in a particular scenario. Especially with diwali around, we noticed everyone wanted to light up their homes, but most of us do it shabbily and very few did it aesthetically. But they are not talking about the Chinese lighting- its more about how lighting can affect the look of a space and our moods too.
Yes there are other interesting things too that they are talking about, let’s find out.
We start with their amazing selection of product round-up in the section Design Stuff. You notice an unusual color schemed decor accessories unlike what you’d expect in a festival season. But that’s what they are meaning for us to do- experiment! You’d love the Manhattan Chesters from Idus and also the Dhokra Metal decor art from Moha. All this fun doesn’t end here, our ongoing theme could blend just right with the second page- with the hint of shiny metals in beautiful tableware from Apartment9, mix of two different ma terials stone and copper in a beautiful Urli. Also striking are sparkling silver diya from Frazer and Haws and pure silver tea set with jade handles from Alchemy de Luxe. Splash of colors come in the third page of the section with amazing mix of colors in cute little products. We especially fell in love with the Mexican jug and ironstone bowls from Houseproud and blue Italian table clock made of ceramic available at The furniture Republic.
Moving on, the section Design at Home contains beautiful interior inspirations. Starting with a serene home based in Bengaluru brought together by Farah and Dhawal of Fadd studio. The home designed is simple yet speaks volumes of elegance quite like the couple who live there.
The other home featured is a getaway from the city life belonging to the Biyani family. The generously done, in terms of space and design, home away from home is located at Lonavala, Maharashtra. It is decked beautifully by Jayesh Shah Architects balancing design with nature. It is must see space, where even the bathrooms will surprise you.
Apart from other interesting interiors from around the world- a waterfront residence in Sydney Australia where integration of architecture, interiors and lighting bring about a beautiful result. Also, intelligently used lightings in an office block in Imola Italy, designed by A2 Studio Design, where the facade of the building gives an impression of a glacial cube at night is worth a look.
Design Today seems to have solved all our lighting woes in this issue, at least for now. In their section Design Focus you’d find yourself drooling over the latest collection of lighting. Some of them would truly surprise you with their effect. You can choose which one matches your mood, read the detailed info and also where its available right there.
