March 31, 2014

We may have minimalist leanings here at Remodelista, but we’re eternally inspired by the colors and patterns of India.

  • Today we’re checking into India’s answer to the Ace hotel: a new place to stay in Mumbai’s emerging Colaba neighborhood with 20 rooms that pay homage to Bombay’s bohemian past.
  • Looking for an ideal way to store leftovers and tote lunch? In her new weekly Tuesday column Object Lessons, Megan Wilson salutes the tiffin tin.
  • Dishoom may be set in London (it has locations in Shoreditch and Covent Garden), but its design, menu, and beating heart come from the all-day Persian cafes that once filled Bombay.
  • There are many Indian wood-block printed fabrics that we like–but few that we like as much as the labor-intensive kalamkari designs made by Les Indiennes. Today, Christine will be presenting the Hudson, New York, company’s newest patterns for table and bed.
  • Monica Patel Cohn makes caftans and tunics from hand-woven Indian textiles (intrigued by this example? see Caftan Chic).  On Friday, stay tuned for her insider advice on where to shop, eat, and stay in Delhi.
