Get this look Sofas custom made by Kunal Shah; Cushions from Fabindia, North Eastern textiles, Neeru Kumar from Tulsi and Atmosphere; Massage table turned centre table from Jew Town, Kochi; White candle holders and bird show pieces from a flea market in Greece; Director’s light from Chor Bazaar, Mumbai; Lazy seater from Heritage Arts Kochi;

A wise one, perhaps in a perpetual wanderlust, once said, “We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” To breathe life into your living space by mixing accessories of different centuries and continents, as seen in this Mumbai penthouse styled by interior designer Kunal Shah.

To play off that eccentric world-wise look, give your antiques a pride of place along with other collectibles. Who thought that a traditional pickle jar could also be used as a pretty planter? Give purpose to every decoration and let your space speak your style.

Always keep an eye out for interesting decor on your getaways for those one-of-a-kind finds to pepper your “well-travelled” home. Then you’ll give “armchair travel” a whole new meaning!
