“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
My idea of a beautiful home is one filled with things that make me smile when I walk past them….a sense of quiet contentment that fills my soul when I sit with a cup of coffee looking at my space. A home is a place that should fill your heart with happiness and contentment. Having travelled the world and seeing a lot of what it has to offer, I still feel the happiest when I come back to my country and my home.
Skyy was born out of this feeling of wanting to bring it all together – my passion for travelling and designing beautiful things and wanting to give back to the community.
Giving Back To The Community
Indian artisans are known the world over for the intricate and stunning work they do. Preserving the heritage of our country is extremely important to me. Connecting and collaborating with artisans from across the country and working with small factories to bring you the finished product is my little effort towards doing just that.
I work with Indian artisans and weavers whenever possible. Taking inspiration from diverse cultures and art forms, I have worked to give them a contemporary twist. The artisans have found a way to marry traditional weaves, printing techniques and handwork with contemporary designs keeping the essence of their craft alive – the end result are the stunning masterpieces adorning your home.
Don’t Be Afraid To Follow Your Heart
Being an avid traveller I have met people and seen things that have always left a lasting impression and in turn, inspired me. What did I learn along the way? People want to create contemporary looks for comfortable homes. So my advice would be don’t be afraid to throw some colours together even if you’re going for a simple look. Different textures and patterns can be layered together with unconventional combinations. You never know the startling blend that may emerge from putting it all together – time to live a little.
