T H E G I S T A U G U S T 2 0 2 2 A teliers will tell you it takes more than art tomake a home beautiful. That it’s not all about the ‘aesthetic’, but what your home speaks to you, and about you. For our latest Decor special issue, we got up, close and personal with a number of stalwarts in the industry, from Ashiesh Shah, JJ Valaya, to Arjun Rathi, took notes from the Milan Design Week, only to come to the conclusion — design is personal. Be it inviting nature inside with floral wallpapers, a throwback to the ’70s aesthetic which is pure nostalgia, to dipping our hands in art glass culture in India, we take you on a tour of all that’s exciting in the decor and design world right now. We delve into the raging debate of our age — maximalism or minimalism, explore Bombay’s old Art Deco heritage that’s coming back in bits and pieces, and how it has shaped up post independence.
