Nature-friendly indoors

A dash of green is always soothing to the eyes. Put some potted plants like Aloe, Boston fern, Spider Plant, English Ivy, Rubber Tree and Peace Lily in your living space to breathe life and positivity into your precious rooms. Apart from lending a timeless elegance to your home, houseplants are a smart and natural way to fill up your bare spaces quickly and look best when teamed against white interiors.

Velux blinds are a novel home decor innovation that blend comfort with purpose. A pertinent choice for the hot summers, they provide ample ventilation, soften the sunlight, reduce glare and excess heat and look stunningly aesthetic as well. Leave the blinds open if you want to bask in the sun in leisure or dream away under the cool moon rays at night and feel free to keep them shut if you need an aura of soothing tranquillity. Either way, you are all set to say ‘hello’ to summers in style!
