Loose ends. When you want stuff less ordinary.

If you live in Mumbai, chances are, you already know about Loose Ends, a home decor store, located at Bandra, in the lane opposite Shoppers Stop.





The signboard itself is fun, quirky and  'stuff less ordinary' as it proudly proclaims. When I had first walked into the store , I was afflicted by a malady called  'wow-ness' . Almost every product delighted me and I kept going 'wow', 'wow'.
For example, there was this doormat, which I really liked:




And then there was this coffee mug which appealed to me:


There were also  these bookends which I loved:



The store has many more really unique products.
I loved these fridge magnets:






I also loved these coasters. I was grinning ear to ear when I saw them. I imagined gifting it to a workaholic friend of mine and grinned even wider.

Then these cushions for a children's room caught my eye:

 What a lovely way to teach the toddler alphabets and animal sounds! (there are other animal cushions too)



There were many more such  totally unique products.

Like these eye ball shot glasses:




And there was this one called badly shot which again made me grin.



Then I saw this  canvas print. Your most cherished memories can be customised! So if you have a wonderful photo you can turn it into a work of art. I totally was WOW-ed by this concept too.
What an amazing and a unique gift this would make. Happiness of the recipient, guaranteed for many years to come :)



The creative brain behind 'Loose ends' happens to be someone very close to me.

Meet  the  very talented Madhumita Goswami. She has been featured on NDTV young turks and she has been featured in almost all the leading dailies. She quit her career in advertising  to start 'Loose ends', which is close to her heart.

And yeah, her daughter is a doll :) (and happens to be my niece too :P )

Recently, Madhu has started doing interiors. One of her projects was of course her daughter's room and when I saw the pictures that she shared with me yesterday, the malady of wow-ness overtook me  once again and couldn't stop exclaiming in delight. I was completely blown away that I had to share it with you.



A bed fit for a doll- princess! :) Which little girl wouldn't like this?



Gia is a voraciuos readers and her books are so neatly organised with these custom made book shelves.




The clothes and knick-knacks neatly organised.
You can check out more of her work here. (It is really lovely and a visual treat)

Madhu accepts projects in Mumbai. If you happen to live in Mumbai and would like her to work magic in your home, drop her  a mail. You can reach her at looseends(dot)store@gmail(dot)com

 
If you are hungry for more such delightful stuff,  check out  the photos at the Loose ends Facebook page.


If you  don't live in Mumbai and want them shipped to other places that can be arranged too.

  1. I love their products and to think 'Loose ends' is somehow looped with you (as in family) is quite a revelation indeed! Loved this visual post and makes me want to walk into their store even more.

    Lovely idea and concepts, Madhu. All the very best to you. :)

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

February is here, and so is my blog marathon!

It means that I will be posting a new entry, every single day, the whole of this month! So don't forget to hit 'subscribe' on top of this blog (see the button there? Right on top?) to get my posts right in your, inbox.


A lot of people tell me that they wait for my blog marathon. They write in and tell me that whenever I start my blog marathon, they start their day by reading my posts.


Thank you so much for that! A request--please do leave me comments, so that I know you have read it. Else it feels like I am talking to a wall :)  I will definitely try and reply to all the comments left in my comment box.

On some days, I will be posting the sketches I make.
On some days, it may be a short entry. On some other days, there might be longer posts.

My best friend's wedding :)

The above is where I am staying right now! It is an amazing place :)
I am here for the wedding of one of my closest friends.

You can see videos of me dancing on my Instagram account in my story (which will be available for 24 hours).

Here are some more snap shots from today.

How can any Indian wedding be complete without Mehndi?

As you can see from the above pics, as well as from my Insta feed, I am having a really really good time.

(I left home at 3.00 am today, as I had an early morning flight)

Stay tuned!
