A celebration of interiors at the Asian Paints Colour Store in Bandra.

I don’t know if you guys know this but I’m quite the home + décor enthusiast. I can spend hours on Pinterest pinning inspiring interiors & planning out how my room would look after the imminent remodel.

In fact, I spent a few months last year searching high & low for my perfect desk, until I proudly found it in January. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I can be a tad obsessive. But I don’t get to indulge my love for interiors as often as I’d like. World Interiors Day is on 28th May 2016 (today!) & Asian Paints decided to hold a little advance celebration at their Colour Store on Hill Road, Bandra & I was delighted to be a part of it!
World Interiors DayI have written about my experience at the Asian Paints Colour Store before, so I’m going to try & avoid repeating myself. It’s a sprawling space, laid out over two floors with lots of different decor ideas & resources on how you can design (or redesign!) your space, right from wall paints in different finishes, to wall paper, wood tech & more. There are even mini kids rooms – so adorable!World Interiors Day

The store invited renowned Film Production Designer, Shruti Gupte to host an exclusive workshop on how to draw inspiration from homes and Centered on the theme ‘Intelligent & Inspirational Interiors, from Silver Screens to Your Home’.

World Interiors DayHaving designed homes and interior spaces in films such as ‘Aisha’, ‘Taare Zamin Par’, ‘Khoobsurat’, ‘Lunch Box’ and others, Shruti possesses a deep understanding of the style and sensibilities of the modern-day consumers. Through examples of her films, she covered various aspects from designing homes of characters in movies, to tips on how consumers can use designs seen in movies as inspirations while decorating their own homes. It was wonderful to learn about how meticulous her design choices are, how inspired she was from the story & characters themselves etc. Just goes to show how much attention to detail she puts into her work.

World Interiors DayLater on the store had a little activity where attendees could create their own moodboard based on classical paintings, textures, fabrics & more. And everyone left the store with a cool DIY kit – I can’t wait to take a crack at mine.

For those who are always looking for new ideas to do up their personal spaces with all that’s in vogue and colorful, this workshop at Asian Paints Colour Store, Bandra proved to be inspirational and experiential in equal measure. Whether you’re looking to decorate a new space or just breathe new life into your home by making a few small changes, I’d wholeheartedly recommend a visit to the Asian Paints Colour Store – you’ll get to see a lot of examples, chat with experts and more. When it comes to everything home & decor, you’ll never be in better hands! x
