Glossy and matte finish over satin and rustic

appear to be changing anytime soon. All the way to the top!

An ode to the celebrated cities of India.
Capturing the essence of 5 ever happening Indian cities, our palettes are a mix of both the old and new. The Mumbai palette is retro and quirky with an overall soothing aura, filled with dominant hues of brown and blue. The second palette is cosmopolitan with a tad eclectic, just like Bangalore. The Jaipur palette is regal just like the city it is inspired from. Inspired by the colors of the city Kolkata, the fourth palette is dominant with blue and brown with a slight shade of yellow. And as for Hyderabad, it stands for Biryani! The palette inspired by the same is a wonderful play of blue, red, decks and yellow, with subtle hues of brown to inspire harmony.
Being both bold and elegant, the palettes this week are especially suited for living rooms and decks. Check them out.
