Home Renovation Diary: My Kitchen and Dining Area Reveal

I have been sharing our renovations and the interior styling of different rooms of our house  –  one room at a time. It is now the turn of the heart of the home; the kitchen and dining area where we gather as a family for everything from eating to playing monopoly.

Given the layout of the house, the kitchen is actually located conveniently between the living room and the home office, allowing one to be ideally situated in the middle of the floor. I didn’t really appreciate this positioning in the beginning but the unique open plan layout of the area has proved to be a boon.

Kitchen design can be fraught with second-guessing oneself as it is such an important area of the house and one that we really don’t want to get wrong. My advice, consider everything and then make a must-have list.  Prioritize that list and then work down in order of importance to you as often we just can’t have everything we want.

Individual family dynamics should influence the layout of your home and these were key considerations for us in deciding the layout of this room. Our family enjoys gathering around the dining table and my children will often do their homework there  – so I was determined to have a full-sized dining table in the area. We tore out the island that was there previously and this proved to be the best decision for us. We were also adamant that we wanted a double fridge and full-size oven/ hob in the kitchen – we decided that they were non-negotiable and worked from that blueprint. As it was a contained area, we decided to go with a simple white kitchen and light grey granite countertops. The Flexi hot water Quooker tap we installed at the sink has proved to be the best thing since sliced bread and I am so glad my husband insisted and I listened!

I have always loved exposed brick and I was dead set on having a vintage brick statement wall in the kitchen that juxtapositioned with the ones in the adjacent study. The builder tried very hard to talk me out of this, citing a variety of reasons that I would regret it.  I listened to all his reasons but just couldn’t get past the idea of the brick. Luckily my husband said that if I was convinced then that’s all that mattered. On a brave day, I told him to get started with the vintage brick slips I had bought and lo and behold – the result was stunning!  He admitted he was wrong and that it actually added a standout element to the kitchen.  I also had a clear glass splashback installed so that there was a clean and continuous look of the wall and this has worked very well so far.

I was very conscious that I did not want to overcrowd the area and therefore, we decided to get benches for the full-sized dining table and only two leather chairs on either end.  This lends a casual and welcoming vibe to the area, and keeps the eye-level spacial view clean and uncluttered. We decided we did want a rug under the dining table for warmth and decided to go for a flat pile distressed rug in black and white that will be more resistant to stains as food will inevitably fall over the table.  I love this rug and it ties the place together really well.

When we had just bought the house,  a dear friend came over and casually remarked – you should get a skylight put right above the cooking area.  What a great idea we thought and went for it! There was already an existing skylight running the course of the stairs going up on the side of the kitchen so now we have a kitchen bathed in light which is just the greatest feeling in London. Perhaps one of our most successful decisions was to line the sides of the skylight with glass as well.  This has worked better than we could have ever imagined – when it is raining the drops are reflected in all directions of the glass and it’s quite hypnotizing – like live moving art in the middle of our kitchen!

Overall, the kitchen and dining area design and decor have proved to be more than we could have hoped for. It suits our family fabulously well and it has taught me a very important lesson.  Believe in your convictions and your vision and if you think you really want something – go for it! Sometimes the only way to create a remarkable space is not to play it safe but to that chance and try something different.

As you well know, I love interiors. When I moved to the UK from the US almost two decades ago, I discovered English home magazines and I was hooked. I have been an ardent interior styling advocate and implementor for many years and the time has finally come for my interior styling passion to have its own platform.

My Hallway Decor Reveal: Building on Family Heirlooms

Hallways are those communal areas in our homes that are used by everyone in the family but are often ignored in terms of decor and interior styling. Unfortunately, they are often lower in the pecking order of the rooms we focus on and by the time we get to decorating them –  our stamina, money and interest are all severely depleted. They are, however, crucial areas that set the tone for our daily comings and goings and provide valuable wall space for displaying many of our treasures.

I have one such long corridor in my home that leads to various rooms.  It is a constant thoroughfare and I was keen to make it a visually appealing place that displayed some of our valued possessions and also served as a useful storage area for many household items.

Home styling decisions become so much easier when you have a pre-set focal point in terms of a piece that has to be placed in a particular position and then you are forced to design the remaining space around that item. This is exactly what happened in our hallway; we had a large wall hanging textile that had to go in this hallway as it was one of the few walls in my house that provided this amount of continuous space. The piece in question is an antique Punjabi Phulkari Bagh (big shawl) that is often passed down family members especially at weddings as a family heirloom. This particular handwoven piece belonged to my husband’s grandmother and was given to me by my mother-in-law at my wedding. It languished in a cupboard till I decided to have it framed and then everyone loved it (especially my Mother-in-law who hinted that perhaps she should have it back 🙂

Now as many of you may know, I love fusion decor where ethnic and modern elements are juxtapositioned for a unique look that represents our lives and travels and contains elements from a variety of interior styles. While the wall piece is ethnic in nature, I wanted to incorporate a modern and timeless feel to the landing and adjoining corridor.  I decided that the ideal choice was two matching rugs in broad black and white stripes. Stripes rugs are ideal for adding boldness without drama and the stripes are stylish and a great contrast to the wall hanging.

Once I had the decor foundations in place, I added the finishing touches.  I love my old Hindi movie posters along the corridor as they pertain to my children and remind me of our time in Mumbai and my love for Bollywood. In the landing area, I had storage built-in on the top and bottom with a wooden countertop atop the bottom storage cupboards. The black and white terracotta vases are great for flowers in this area and my filigree bowl from Gangtok is ideal for cards and passes we use on a daily basis. Together, they work well with my black and white box alongside the countertop. The top also holds a low lamp for a wonderful glow in the evening and the all-important internet booster.

In the long corridor, I have placed a low-level black metal shelving unit to hold books that always seem to overflow out of my children’s rooms. I have positioned it right under the wall hanging for symmetrical effect; it has also proved to be a great base for my long wooden boat that I bought in Kochi.

As I walk around during the day – the decor of my hallway always puts a smile on my face.  Our home decor should excite and revive us through the day and this bit of interior styling achieves this for me in droves.

I hope you enjoyed this interiors lookbook. If you are looking for help with your interiors styling –  please get in touch.  As always, thank you for reading Isha’s Verdict and have a great rest of the week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Home Refurbishment Diary Part 3: Garage Converted Into My Study

I hope you have all recovered from this weekend of super sports – regardless of who you support, between the cricket and the tennis, I think my heart is worse off from the stress it has had to endure as a spectator over the last few weeks! I think it’s best I get back to blogging; a much more mundane sport that my poor heart can handle more easily.

I have previously written articles about the decision to renovate our home ( Home Refurbishment Diary: The Start of the Renovations of my New Home and Home Refurbishment Diary Part 2: Hallway and Master Ensuite Bathroom Interior Decor and Design).  I have also written many blogs on how much I love interiors (hence the interior section in this blog) and how interior design is a passion I have pursued for almost two decades now.

Our home had a garage in the front and the back wall of the garage is where it met the existing home structure.  It was our hope to convert the garage into a study (and then some) if we got planning permission to do so.  Sometimes the universe works as it should – permission was gratefully received and we decided to move ahead with the conversion.  In this post, I present the results of that conversation with the hope that perhaps some of the ideas I have implemented may be of some help to others who are considering their own renovation/conversion process or just provide enjoyment for those of us who love interiors as much as I do.

Our overriding intention with this garage space was to use it to its maximum potential and make every inch of space work hard for its existence.  This ‘maximum space utilization’ plan influenced all our decisions with this conversion, including these key ones:

1)  ‘Underfloor Vault Storage’: The garage sloped downwards in the front where it met the road outside, so the floor had to be raised to make it level.  This allowed us to do something that I found very exciting  – create some storage space in the floor.  There was much debate and contribution about possibilities until we hit on the correct one – a ‘wine cellar style’ vault for bottles that would provide useful space and a unique feature in our home.  We decided to cover this with a walk on glass door that opens on gas struts.  We then decided to line with it with the same brick slips used in other parts of the room to tie it all together. We both love the results of this experiment and the raw brick and concrete floor is the icing on the cake!

2) Crittall Style Doors: I am a huge fan of Crittall style doors, windows and panels. My initial plan was to get Crittall style doors that covered the expanse of the new opening created by knocking down the back garage wall. This endeavour was looking like a prohibitively expensive proposition and then fate intervened.  Once we tore down the wall, my husband and I realized that we loved the openness of the space and didn’t want any doors there after all. We did still, however, need a partition on one side of the room as a staircase started below it – so we decided to go for a Crittall style partition that is firmly embedded into the side and above walls.  This has proved to be a great decision practically and fulfilled my desire for a Crittall feature in this area.

3) ‘The three doors’: the unconverted garage was ‘normal size’ but my husband and I were in agreement that the resulting room needed to be more than a study – it also needed to house our washer/dryer, a ground floor washroom and a storage cupboard for the hoover etc.  It made sense to house these extra functional spaces on one side of the room and that decision seems to have been the right one.  A special shoutout to the black door handles that I got on Amazon; they are solid and so beautiful.

3) Brick Slips: I have long been a fan of exposed brick  – I love the earthiness and unfinished vibe it brings to a room.  Unfortunately, there was no original brick wall to be uncovered in this area.  So we decided to go for the next best thing – brick slips! These are basically real old/vintage bricks that have been cut in half and can then be applied on existing walls with adhesive and mortar.  I was hell-bent on having the brick and many a person tried to talk me out of it. They now admit that my conviction proved to be right – they all love the character it adds to the room!

4)Bookshelf: On the opposite long wall to the doors, there was an internal garage door that lead into the corridor at the entrance of the house.  As this door was no longer needed, we decided to use the closed recess of the door space to create a bespoke bookcase.  I am proud to say that we also cut up and used the original door in this space to make the ledge that separates the washer and dryer – it felt good to recycle and use older materials practically instead of dumping them.

5)Washroom Details: I have long been keen on a black and white decor and my new little washroom provided the perfect space to try it out.  I know that black hardware is all the rage and I am a fan; hence my black tap (and black mirror)  which I love. The monochrome decor also allowed me to use the big brass light covering I bought on our trip to Morocco last year; which frankly I had no idea what to do with inititally.  I love the juxtapositioning of the huge light in the small room – it’s one of my favourite features in this garage conversion.

6) The Desk and Chair: The leather-topped traditional walnut desk in the room has a special place in our hearts.  My husband’s first job after university was with a company that operated out of a beautiful old listed building. One day, the employees were informed that all the furniture in the building was being sent to an auction facility over the weekend as the listed building needed to be emptied for renovation works. There was, however, a catch. Before the contents were shipped off, if any of the employees had a favourite piece of furniture – they could put in a sealed bid to purchase it and whoever won, could have it.  My husband loved this desk and won the bid for it and has had it ever since.  I love how it dominates this study space and it works perfectly as a work desk.  The modern classic black Eames style chair (bought on ebay) is the perfect partner to this old bureau. I have tied the brass and chrome together by adding a brass and chrome desk lamp from Andrew Martin.

7) Decor Details: I love being reminded of our family travels when I look at objects/furnishings in my home. One of my favourite pieces is this beautiful Kashmiri (qum/gum) carpet that we bought on our trip to Kashmir.  We have kept it wrapped up ever since, waiting for the perfect space to unravel it and we have finally found it’s home.  It is lovely to look at, soft underfoot and the weave ensures it is two different colours depending on which side you look at it.The beige chair near the Crittall partition is from our expat stint in Mumbai and the leather pouffe in front of it is from Markesh. The striking geometric cushion is from Oka and available currently in their collection.  The four turban pictures (made from egg and sand) were bought at the affordable art fair many years ago and are still a firm favourite. The huge oil canvas on the wall by the desk is done by (@revati_sharma_singh) who is a good friend and artist extraordinaire! I bought the old brass box on my books from Oshiwara market in Mumbai  – the shopkeeper stored his keys in there and I begged him to let me take it off his hands. Finally, I bought the antique wood mirror on a fleeting trip to Delhi and it now takes place of pride on my brick wall.

 

My love for interiors is well known and I derive immense pleasure in designing spaces that appeal to the eye and the heart of the occupiers in equal measures. In my opinion, a well-curated space cannot be bought; it needs to be assembled with objects close to our hearts and provide a functional space that works on a practical level.  I hope you enjoy this blog post and please feel free to reach out with any questions/comments that you may have.  I am always game to discuss interiors and I enjoy nothing more than getting stuck into designing a space and making it come alive into a fabulous living area.

I have also added a before picture of the garage.

Have a fabulous week ahead and thank you so much for supporting me and reading Isha’s Verdict.

 

 

 

 

Home Refurbishment Diary Part 2: Hallway and Master Ensuite Bathroom Interior Decor and Design

(Pictures at the bottom of the post)

Many of you who read the blog will be aware that I absolutely love interiors and interior decor; probably as much as I love fashion. Many months ago, I wrote a blog post titled ‘Home Refurbishment Diary: The Start of the Renovations of my New Home’.  We moved home last year and being the interiors junkie that I am, this was a dream project to feed my passion and create a new home space for me and my family.

Now, many months later, the home is taking shape and I have learned so many lessons along the way.  Experience is the greatest educator and my knowledge of many real-life practicalities such as builders, space and budget have increased exponentially. Like fashion, I am a firm believer that gorgeous interiors must also be practical; each item in a house should serve a purpose and enhance the lives of the people who live there.

Many parts of the house are still in the process of coming together – be it physical work or interior decor. However, I am glad to say that there are parts that are almost finished and I am now in a position to share them with you. I am very excited to share two small areas of the house that are more or less complete for now anyway:

The Hallway: This is the hallway that connects the kitchen to the living room.  No structural work was required here but I wanted to achieve maximum storage as it is an extension of the kitchen.  The two doors to the side didn’t present many opportunities as they contain the boiler and electrics within.  Buying a large sideboard was the ideal solution to housing our glassware and bottles collection. It also provided an opportunity to display some of our favourite items; the vivid cow picture is a lithograph we bought during our stay in Mumbai by a Czech artist who used to spend half the year in India.  The lacquered paper mache box is a treasure from Vietnam and perfect for holding my ‘to do and to buy’ lists.  The Japanese whiskey display is a homage to our love for all things Japanese and more accurately to my husband who is a Whisky enthusiast and his knowledge of the subject is extensive. I loved the idea of black leather handles and knobs and have added these to the doors in the area to get a cohesive effect.  One day, I would like to replace the doors into the hallway with glass doors and install wooden blinds in the window but that’s for another time.

The Ensuite Bathroom: This is the ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom, and I have included a ‘before picture’ of the area as well.  We decided to divide the area of the old bathroom into a walk-in closet (I hope to show pictures in a later post) and a smaller ensuite.  As the area has no natural light – I decided to create a comforting sanctuary working with the artificial light available. I love the raw cement look of the wall tiles and I fell in love with the floor tiles when I visited Topps Tiles. Therefore, I decided to pair these tiles together and I love the look they achieve in unison.  I am also an ‘always cold’ person so I wanted to include both underfloor heating and a large radiator so that I could be warm, and have warm towels.  I decided to go all out and buy a large grey/black radiator that would serve as a statement piece. This gorgeous radiator allows the towels to be warmed on the protruding parts and heats up that bathroom like a Swedish Sauna!

I am a huge fan of Crittal style doors and I have seen many a Pinterest picture with gorgeous bathrooms with similar doors.  Unfortunately, anywhere I enquired about these doors responded with an eye-watering price that was way out of my budget.  I finally found someone to make this custom size Crittall style shower door, but I still had to blow my allocated budget.  I have realized that it is only worth blowing your pre-set budget if you really have your heart set on something and in this case, it was worth it. The other item that has proved its worth is the LED lit, time-display, antifog, blue tooth mirror. The light is excellent and the speakers are powerful.  It is wonderful to listen to music when you are having a shower  – until the mirror tells you what time it is!

As there is no natural ventilation in this bathroom – we decided to install two extraction fans (one over the shower and one over the toilet) and this has proved to be a wise decision. I was determined to build maximum storage (both hidden and in view) into this bathroom and the storage on top of the toilet that extends to the ceiling is a handy feature. Combining this with the open shelf storage as well as the under sink storage – I think I have rammed in just about as much storage as possible into a relatively small bathroom.  I do wish there had been the option of a bigger sink but given that we wanted to devote maximum space to the shower enclosure (which we achieved), this was the optimal configuration for the bathroom fittings. This entire space was designed by me to suit my taste, budget and practical needs, and we are very pleased with the results.

Overall, I have learned that there is no substitute for preparation when it comes to creating a space in your house that is to your preferences.  I firmly believe that our home surroundings and internal decor has a huge impact on our mood and our ability to fully relax and enjoy our personal time.  I love nothing more than to look at real-life examples of home decor; so I hope you enjoyed this peek into my personal decor and design choices in these areas.

I am happy to discuss interior projects and design at any time so please feel free to contact me if you are looking to or in the process of designing your own personal space.  Have a great week and thank you so much for visiting Isha’s Verdict.

Houzz of 2018 Visit: Interiors Inspiration and My Crittall Style Crush

Happy Tuesday everyone! As many of you are aware from my previous blog posts – I am currently renovating my new abode and therefore, obsessed with all things house and home.  This Sunday gone, I had the opportunity to visit Houzz of 2018.  Houzz of 2018 is a pop-up shop in Soho that is located in a 5-storey townhouse that also happens to be an exhibition space. It is 5 floors of some of the hottest trends in interiors at the moment and each floor is choked full of gorgeous ideas and products that are mostly available to buy.

This kind of exhibition is exactly up my alley so I couldn’t wait to get in there. Each floor is presented as a different part of the house (as the natural layout would be in a townhouse) so that it is possible to view products in their natural settings as they would be placed in a real home.  Each space is well thought out and curated and I appreciated the realistic proportions of many of the rooms.

My favourite part of the house was the master bathroom.  It is a generous space designed  largely as a monochromatic mood board that features many of the current trends in bathroom decor. The double sinks embedded in reclaimed wood and offset by two lovely art-deco light fixtures had me imaginary brushing my teeth and smiling into the round mirror.  The pièce de résistance for me was the shower enclosure composed of Crittall inspired shower panels.  I am a huge fan of the Crittall trend and it is my current interiors crush that refuses to abait. Crittall style are art deco-inspired, metal-framed, casement-style windows and doors that give an industrial look and were first manufactured by the Crittall company in the 1880s. I am determined to incorporate a Crittall style shower door into my bathroom at home, however, I have had no luck so far finding one at a reasonable price.  I have found a few companies that will make shower screens in this style but a shower door that doesn’t cost more than a new kidney – nope!  I am now turning to welding companies to see if they can conjure one up for me and I will keep you posted on my efforts.

The top floor features a Nespresso bar for a well deserved free cup of great coffee (having climbed a whole 5 sets of steps) and my other interiors crush – a living wall.  Looking at this lovely piece of living art has me convinced that I must get one in my enclosed patio.  If anyone knows a reasonable supplier – please send them my way.

It would be remiss of me to write a blog post without a mention of fashion – so here goes.  I love the dramatic look of the buttons on the black jumper I wore to the Houzz of 2018. It is a versatile piece that will work with so many styling options and the best part – it is on sale.  I absolutely adore this coat with the side fastening and leather sleeves from All Saints.  It is achingly cool, surprisingly warm and also on sale – it doesn’t get better than that for me.  Finally, I have accessorized my outfit with my best crossbody bag for a rainy day – my bright pink rubber Hunter bag.  This bag is functional, pretty and makes a bright statement on a dull day – I am so glad it lives in my wardrobe.

If you enjoy interiors and fancy a free look at some great design and products, I highly recommend a visit to the Houzz of 2018.  It is open to all till tomorrow evening at 6:00 pm.  Also, if you have never visited www.houzz.co.uk, I suggest a visit as soon as possible – you will not regret it!

I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for visiting my blog.

Home Refurbishment Diary: The Start of the Renovations of my New Home

This summer gone, I and my family moved home. Due to a realignment of schools and work locations  – we moved to London! I have never lived in central London before and the move has proved to be a runaway success for the entire family. The general chaos of city centres has always appealed to me and I love the energy of a thousand souls around me. The proximity to places to is a great impetus to walk everywhere and frankly, I can’t remember the last time I drove. The biggest downside – my close proximity to Oxford Circus is proving to be a very bad thing!

Of course, with a decision to live in ‘central anywhere’ comes the acceptance that you will get less living space for your money then if you moved slightly further in any direction. Once, I had come to terms with space realities, we started house-hunting and last month we found our perfect pad.

Our purchase was in reasonably good condition and moving into, as it stood, was a feasible option.  However, after considerable discussion we arrived at a marvellous mutual marital decision – let’s renovate it now before we move in! This was a big decision but once made – the full reality of the situation sunk in and I was quite giddy with joy.  Finally, as a fully paid member of the home and interiors obsessed club, I have my very own chance to turn my home into a Pinterest inspired piece of home heaven.

Now, that I have set up the premise of this experiment, I am going to introduce some of the rooms that I am currently working on. I plan to discuss individual rooms and their design decisions in future blogs.

Kitchen: My new home opens directly into the kitchen.  This configuration means two things: 1) You don’t have to travel too far to get to the food 2) As the first room one enters, it should make a decorative impact while being completely functional.  I have never investigated or bought a kitchen before and boy have the past few weeks been a huge learning curve. I have limited space to play with and I need a classic L-shaped kitchen with not much space available for storage beyond that. We have decided against an island as I would like a dining table there instead. I do believe it works as a family hub and everyone gravitates towards the kitchen table – especially the children.  More than anything else, I am obsessed with having a brick wall in the kitchen. I have always loved the way they look and now I have a chance to have my very own. Two concerns; one there is no brick wall present so I will have to use brick slips (www.brickslips.co.uk). Second, the only wall where this would work is also the wall that the cooker will back onto. I have looked into this and opinion is divided.  Some say that even with a splashback, it is not a good idea as the wall will stain with the splashing of food whilst cooking.  Others say that with a sealant in place and a little care, it should not be a problem.  I am not sure what to do but currently changing my mind daily…

Master bathroom: This particular room came with a long triangular en suite with a huge bathtub in it.  Neither my husband nor I enjoy taking baths – we are shower people all the way.  I know that conventional wisdom is that one should always have a bathtub in the house but I have decided to be a rebel and take it out.  In that space, I am adding something I will definitely use – a small walk-in wardrobe! This will also create a small passage to the bathroom which will house a dressing table.  I have tried to be smart with space here by using what’s available – I am very excited to see how this will turn out.

Enclosed patio: This particular dwelling has two small enclosed patios.  Of course, I have wonderful visions of me sitting there with a cup of coffee, working on the blog and enjoying the pretty plants around me.  I have recently learnt what a ‘living wall’ is and I think one of the walls in the patio would be perfect for a living wall. There are various issues to consider, the most important being  – real or fake? I have also heard that over time plants may grow past their borders depending on the direction of the sun.  These are some good sites to see examples of living walls:

www.vistagreen.com

www.treebox.co.uk

I have also had first-hand experience of unforeseen issues that effect build and decor in real life situations.  We are lucky in that the previous owner has left us some beautiful herringbone parquet flooring, with borders, that run the length of the house.  However, running new pipes can become an issue when we are not willing to lift up the floor in any room.  Unfortunately, the pipes have lost this battle!

This is the current situation, in a nutshell, of my home renovation project.  So far, it has been a great education as well as a great deal of fun. I hope that you may discover some ideas you like as the project moves along but also that you may offer me some great ideas/advice as well, that will open up new possibilities.

I hope you liked this lookbook, have a great weekend ahead and please follow the blog if you enjoy it. As always, thank you so much for reading Isha’s Verdict.
