Finally did it!!! yoo hooo. This Nov the 17th our objective was to go beyond the written word on this blog and do an actual show and tell of Residential Interior Design Best Practices in front of home makers at our experience centre. We spent a month collecting & preparing samples of material, paintwork, finishes etc. On top of that the experience center is wired to customize lighting based on different moods, moments and times of the day to showcase the importance of lighting in interior design – we put all this together and more as part of the Masterclass to some raving reviews from the audience … here is one
“Your session provided important insights into various aspects of interior designing like the right material to choose for woodwork, different types of lighting, painting process, common mistakes, key design elements to take care for "second childhood friendliness", wardrobe channels and so on. You are indeed the Google of Home Designing”.
