White and contemporary!

My Singapore stay was special in that my home reflected a lot of what I wouldn't have been able to do in India. The white sofas, the very contemporary, modern apartment blended beautifully with my traditional wooden furniture from India. and yes Buddha entered by home in a major way!

It's magical how about a year before moving to Singapore I'd started craving (pregnancy induced) for white interiors, evincing a very specific wish for a white upholstered sofa seating in my living room, which, of course, became a frequent topic of banter between Narayan, our friends and me and the fact that Narayan owed it to fulfill my wish.

And it all fell into place!

Narayan's inherited silver synced beautifully with the white

Irresistibly happy & sunlit corner
