3 ways to use the same bedsheet – but give different looks to your room: Inputs From Expert Sonam Gupta

It’s that time of the year when agai you start preparing afresh for the upcoming year ahead. Christmas celebrations are knocking at the door and yes you definitely need to think somethiBedsheets are a key ingredient in the overall decoration of the room. And, there is away to say it all through a single decorative concept. You might like to use the same bed layover in different combinations to heighten the bedroom décor. A single piece of bedsheet may be able to do it all. All you need to do is try some permutations and combinations and go coordinate the colours, shapes and patterns of the same bed cover with the flow of the room. Depending on your choice of a bedcover, you can decide to alter the look and feel of your room, aplenty.

Here are 3 ways to use the same bedsheet for different looks in your room.

  1. The focal point is the bedsheet you have used. Take into account the colour, design or the pattern and match it up with the extra layer of cushions on the bed. Yes, throws using a lot of cushions is for convenience and fashion together. Don’t just do by laying cushions on the bed. The idea is to use decorative cushion covers which too are amply available.

These cushion-made cover designs and style look fabulous for everyday décor. Take, for example, the Indie-Tadka design covers adding zing and life to your otherwise simple décor. If you are using an Indie Tadka bedcover, then, a perfect match of cushion cover can be found in the self-embroidered Bronze or Red to add sheen to the complete layover. You can try and match different colours to make it vibrant yet not loud and noisy. Try the mix and match with a neutral shade in between a vibrant colour like a red or a purple. It will instantly add the gloss in a subtle and sober way. On an occasion, you can make your choice between the sheen and the shimmering of red and bronze respectively.

2. Again, with a bedsheet at the nucleus, take time to look for duvets and comforters. These are extra layers on the bed and when kept in a nice, folded way, it definitely heightens the look and feel of the complete décor. Such is the layered prominence. They can almost cover a three-fourth portion of the bed before they get wrapped on the bed nicely in the one-neat thick fold.

There are duvet covers available in solids like red and blue will immediately attract attention yet look sober and sleek in their own style. With an Indigo Blue, you will never overdo the bedroom décor. However, your prime stuff, which is the bedsheet, pillow, and now the duvet, should never look displeasing to each other. It is therefore important to try good colour combinations or contrasts, as you may personally prefer. A white base sheet will help you in choosing more vivid colours, while an already bold colour and design on the bedsheet will compel you to choose something soberer like a neutral Wheat or a Desert Safari duvet colour cover.

3. The whole bedsheet décorincluding the pillows, cushions, duvets or as you please it to be, has to be adequately and appropriately matched with the window curtains. It is important since draperies are always of flowing length and add a lot to the grace and elegance of fabrics in the bedroom. Your bed dressing is incomplete if you don’t find a suitable match in the window curtains.

Even if you don’t have too much window length like floor to ceiling, it is still recommended to use high fall curtains, especially on the top. If you keep a bit outwards length, it will create an illusion of grandeur. Do it only if you wish to highlight the bedroom décor using curtains. Even if you use mid-length curtains, it still makes room to match it up with the bedsheet in design and colours. Usually, a multi-coloured bed sheet must be matched with curtains of neutral or a solid colour. Pick up the colour which is most prominent on the bed dressings, like in a multi-colour display there is always a certain shade which gains precedence over the rest. Use that one shade to add aglow to the complete décor of your room.

So here were some brilliant hacks from the connoisseur, Sonam Gupta, the designing head Tangerine.

Design to Sonam is an aesthetic solution. “Everyday continues to inspire me – colour palettes as seen in cityscapes and our surroundings. I am intrigued by textures seen in nature, in humans and all around us. India as a country has always been an inspiration for its rich culture and textiles. We are known for our flamboyant usage of colours and patterns. The country has also carved out a significant spot for itself on the global fashion map.”

“Tangerine Design Studio ; built by colour lovers, storytellers, perfection obsessed quirky designers who aim to bring  fashion to our customers’ lifestyle through a whole new range of Home products thereby giving home a new style identity. Colour has always been the focal point for our collection. I am constantly in sync with the trends and forecast all over the world. The challenge is really to identify and modify the trends to make them suitable for our Indian customers.”

Thank You Sonam for such beautiful inputs.

Decor had never been so simplified before!

Some of India’s top fashion designers including Rina Dhaka, Shaina NC, Shruti Sancheti, Divya and Ambika Jain showcased their latest fashion collections designed from Jharkhand’s rich fabrics and handloom at the grand fashion show put together by Jharcraft. Top models sashayed the ramp displaying the elegant collections with elan as the designers showcased their designs made of Tussar silk, Kuchai silk and other handloom fabrics of Jharkhand.

Jharcraft (Jharkhand Silk Textile and Handicraft Development Corporation Ltd) conceived the fashion event with an objective to put spotlight on to the exquisite and organic fabrics handcrafted by craftspersons of the state.

Union Minister for Textiles Smt Smriti Irani also paid a visit to the Jharcraft pavilion and took a close look at the handloom collection. She also discussed the initiatives being undertaken to help artisans from the state to achieve better market access and improve their livelihood.

Tussar Silk, a special silk variety produced in eastern and central India, primarily in Jharkhand, was the special focus of the collection. India is the second largest producer of Tussar silk and the exclusive producer of Indian Tussar (also known as tropical tussar). In recent years, Jharkhand state has emerged as the largest producer of Tussar silk in the country.

The artisans producing the silk are largely poor tribals from Jharkhand state. In its quest to improve sources of livelihood for these artisans, Jharcraft works to promote their work and take it to national and international platforms.

“These silks are a deep manifestation of the tribal arts and crafts of the region and reflect the well-springs of creativity endowed with the ethnic communities of Jharkhand. Recognizing it as a source of income, the artisans of the state have in recent years further cultivated and enhanced their skills as well as variety of products. Jharkhand is today the leading producer of Tussar silk which is attracting much attention, especially among the discerning fabric lovers. By associating with such an event and showcasing Tussar silk and garments made of other handlooms of Jharkhand, our attempt is to take ours fabrics and handlooms to international markets,” said K Ravi Kumar, Managing Director, Jharcraft.

Tussar silk is made from silkworms. Some varieties produced in Jharkhand is also known as ‘Ahimsa’ silk because unlike the traditional process, this process allows silkworms to leave the cocoons before the cocoons are soaked in boiling water and reeled. The use of 100% natural dyes made from tree bark, vegetables, wild grasses and flowers ensure purely organic silk.

With such vibrant hues explored at one of the top-notch Fashion Shows of India, Jharkhand once again reinstated its repute as the finest producer of Tussar Silks.

By Adab: The Best Pick For The Gifting Season

With Diwali and Bhaidooj festivities around, gifting is the flavor of the season. Moreover with the  wedding ceremonies nearing soon, you must be brainstorming about a great gift, that is unconventional as well as extraordinary. If clothing and accessories have become too stereotyped and usual for you as a gift, we have the best solutions curated for you.

By Adab: The Perfect Partner For Your Bed and Bath Linen Choices

Recently We chanced to come across By Adab, a signature brand of bath linen and bed linen. A visit to their Greater Kailas Store turned out to be an indeed cherishable experience considering the wide range of products they have.

Not to disregard any popular brand, but most of the colossal home furnishing Indian Brands fail to live up to the expectations of the consumers. Either the colours fade out soon or may be there is a sudden roughness observed and sometimes even the textures start showing signs of dullness. Surprisingly, By Adab fills none of the aforementioned flaws.

By Adab, though the name signifies an Urdu way of greeting “Adab” actually here pertains to the joined nomenclatures of the founders, Aditya and Abhinav Aggarwal.

adab

An interaction with the founders helped us to understand the features of the products better and these are the top 5 features for which we can proudly choose it to be the best gift for Diwali or the wedding season:

  • By Adab’s bed linens share a rare quality, “the more you wash, the more it becomes soft and polished”. In fact this is probably the first unique brand of its kind that could proclaim such a feature in home furnishings. We were shown a few samples that have been washed almost 25 times and the finish as well as textures remained to be exactly the same of a new one.cherry-berry-bamboo-stripe
  • A wide and classy variety is another USP of the brand. You have the choicest of collections like Mrs. Select, Mrs. Rajputana, Mrs. CherryBerry,Mrs. A++ and definitely the Bunny Bath bath linen collection. From your bespoken furnishings to your regular use, By Adab can proudly fulfill all your demands. Some of the collections are such user-friendly that you can fold them and carry them easily during your travels.fountain-flower-brown
  • A special word of appreciation should definitely be given to a signature collection named Mrs. Eucacel. This collection made from absolute eucalyptus plant cells is a great partner for skin care. Apart from the medicinal properties of eucalyptus plants, it is also enriched with the goodness of Vitamin E, that is a soothing friend for your skin without an iota of doubt. Moreover this special collection, being bio-degradable in nature makes you feel warm in winters and cool in summers. Isn’t it a perfect pick??mrs-eucacel-leaf-green
  • Their quality guarantee is another feature for which we would highly recommend them. The 200 Threads/Sq to 1100 Threads/Square is a rare feature that bed linens share. In fact most of the bed linen manufacturers do not reveal the threads/square information because of their flawed qualities. By Adab’s transparency about their quality was reinforced by their detailed product showcase and descriptions.
  • The best part of By Adab is they are completely environment-friendly. In fact without the use of any feathers for their quilts and towels or pillows, they have not harmed the interests of the animals at all. This makes the products friendlier towards children’s skin as well as allergic skins too.

So if you are concerned about making the best pick of a gift, By Adab can surely be your perfect choice. It is not only the premium choice for gifting but also a promising option when it comes to your personal home décor. After all who would not want to have a skin-friendly bed linen at his/her place?

Kala Drishti: A Truly Deserving Eye For Art

A creator is always known by his/her work of art and undoubtedly a true work of art is timeless in age and nature. Kala Drishti, a brainchild of Ritika Jain and Anjali Jain has truly defined the standards of contemporary art through their array of collections and creations. India still lags far behind than than the other nations in terms of patronizing art. Since art stands to be either unrecognized or unacknowledged as an outlet of creativity, Kala Drishti endeavors to focus on welcoming the several streaks of art and directing the deserved attention and appreciation to different forms of art.

Kala that literally means art and drishti which indicates the sight stands for evoking the eye of interest and appreciation for a true work of art. Though India has geared up in the recent times considering the value of art and artist, however still it is miles behind when it comes to the true recognition of art and artistry. Kala Drishti’s line of art mainly rests on traditional as well as contemporary designs like miniatures, madhubanies as well as Kalamkari paintings. Brought into practice long time back by Raja Ravi Verma and the Bengal School of Artist, the true worth of these styles went unnoticed.

Kala Drishti thus aims to champion art and offer the genre its true value and worth. Built with the creative spirits of a few artists, it is through Kala Drishti that the mother dauighter duo Anjali and Ritika Jain envisions to spread the word of art in its deserving channels. Indeed they are all set to spread this creative buzz through different shops and outlets spread all over.

She used to get flashes of images and situations in her mind at the spur of the movement and get inspired by them. Even today, most of her paintings are a result of these flashes. Her biggest interest is Metaphysics and the search for self.  Her most rewarding posting was in Dilli Haat, where she was the (O.S.D.) looking after the working of the project’s.
