Perfect for a spring decor

Eucalyptus – A concept home store in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad has a good collection of bed linen, quilts, bed spreads, cushion covers etc. All their designs are so neat and inspired out of Indian vernacular designs and nature….peepal, eucalyptus, champa, sher, chaupad etc are the names of their collections…don’t the names itself feel so close to home and reminds us of our childhood. I wish they had an online store.

Eucalyptus is the brain child of Asha Reddy and designers Shaila Nambiar and Shruti Phagre-Mahajan. Visit Eucalyptus to know more about these enterprising womens and the techniques used in their wonderful creations.

Riding in style

I always wanted a bike and this year looks like the wish would come true. Being a design junkie I keep looking at things with design excellence and good looks.

Then when it comes to bikes we have to look at other technical aspects too.

And of course the price :-(

From the latest designs I have come across the classic look is back in the triming of the bikes. That reminds me of the good old days when I started riding on my red Atlas cycle.

The options I found for myself are:

1) No one would say 'no' to these beautiful Electra bikes...they are so "pretty".

2) This is the match for me from Fisher Bikes

3) Then Specialized has some nice sporty ones.

4) Or the last option is to go with the brands available at Target price.Schwinn Mountain Bike.

Furniture stores in India

I have been lately hunting for some nice furitures for an apartment. Mostly been searching on the net for furniture stores in India. I know Fab India has some good collection of wooden furniture and they are available in the city were the apartment is.

In Living has quite some collection of wooden furniture and one thing great about them is they have free delivery and you can order online. When I first saw In Lining's collection I was reminded of West Elm which is my all time favorite furniture store in US.

Strawberry bread

This week we met some old friends after a long time. I took strawberry bread along for the dinner. The texture of the bread is almost like cake but since the amount of sugar is less it is nice to have it along with ice cream.

I took the recipie from Joy Of Baking

The leftover bread was a nice snack with evening tea.
