Our personality defines us and we involuntarily shape our life around it, submissive to it, it`s the mysterious force that attracts people or repels them. The personality commands everything indirectly, the pattern we will choose, the color we will prefer in different unknown situations, the texture that we consider fit, proper, and comfortable. We know what feels right & what fits us!

Welcoming landscape offering areas of retreat, relaxation and congregation

It is human nature to desire a place to retreat, somewhere we can rest, unplug, and be at peace… a place of privacy and quiet so we can refuel and collect our thoughts or even luxuriate in keeping your mind blank!  As it happens the importance of relaxation in our increasingly challenging high-stress world cannot be overstated.  Many illnesses in fact can be linked back to stress & if we wait for our vacations to come around we could end up too stressed out to enjoy our daily lives! This is where the importance of a multi-purpose and welcoming landscape offering areas of retreat, relaxation and congregation becomes crucial.

With the right kind of designs, you can even transform your backyard into a private retreat. After a long day cooped up in the busy office it can be your private haven to unwind peacefully in the fresh air!

Or maybe you can go on vacation in your own backyard by creating a complete outdoor living oasis with everything you would need for hours of outdoor activity. You can start by taking into account the needs and desires of your family to determine the right design approach for your personal retreat. If children are involved then consider their friends as well as an entertaining space for the adults. Once the scale and scope of the project are determined, let’s consider the elements that will have to be included.


Define your theme or concept, and then pick your organic and inorganic earth elements to successfully achieve your goals. Your backyard retreat need not be restricted by the style of your homes architecture or the neighborhood. If you want a tropical or Mediterranean feel in your landscape, use your ‘Earth’ element choices to achieve your goals. For example, choose plants with large, loose, colorful and informal foliage & unique paving stones to complete the style. Large pots and urns filled with exotic oversized annuals can be used throughout.


An outdoor fireplace will create a gathering location and define a significant architectural element in your retreat. Be it for the warmth on a chilly evening, a meal on the grill, or the visual attraction of flames and glowing coals, a fire is bound to enrich your space. Designs & products have vastly expanded the opportunities and characteristic of fire elements in the landscape.  Creative stand alone fire pits and unique gas flame features have become the recent trends. A built in fireplace or a portable fire pit – the choices are extensive!


Water has many possibilities in design. A bubbling fountain, a naturalistic pond or a swimming pool can add to the charm of your space. If it is a stand-alone fountain you prefer there are innumerable possibilities -From old world European to modern contemporary style, they can become a sculptural accent in any open space! A naturalistic pond with waterfalls reminiscent of a country creek with fish and water plantings of all sorts is also an option to make your retreat more beautiful. As for a swimming pool, it can provide an attractive and active central water feature to build your entire backyard retreat around. Design your pool to accommodate both your practical uses and style preferences. A pool can also serve as a place for your family & friends togather.

Now the monsoons have come & rains have started. The question arises Have you insulated your home against “wet” yet? 

Rains bring with them moisture to our homes,  much to our discomfort. Moisture exists in the air around us which makes it easy for many molds & mites to thrive. Normally a 50 percent level of indoor humidity is usually considered a healthy level as it is comfortable for humans and it also discourages the growth of mites & molds in that environment. But what happens when your moisture levels cross that level?
Some moisture is essential in the air you breathe, but too much moisture in your home can cause problems. It can even lead to damage of the building. Structural wood may rot and drywall can swell.  If moisture gets into your insulation, the insulation will not work as well as it should, and your heating and cooling bills will increase.

Moisture enters your home through rain, either falling on a leaky roof, wind-driven against a poorly-sealed wall, or collecting against (and eventually leaking through) the walls of your basement. The most noticeable are Roof leaks which must be repaired immediately. But rain coming through a wall is less visible, especially if it is a relatively small leak and the water remains inside the wall cavity. These leaks may occur around window or door frame, & can be repaired by replacing any missing or cracked caulking. Sump pumps may be used to handle rain seeping through the ground into your basement which may appear as damp, moldy walls. When moisture condenses inside a wall, mold and mildew grow in moist areas, causing allergic reactions and damaging buildings.

Roofing panels are made of polyurethane foam (PUF) sandwiched between layers of waterproof and non-corrosive material can be used to insulate the ceilings of houses.  These pre-fabricated roofing panels are designed to withstand the forces of nature and the passage of time. They also effectively restrict the transmission of heat by 5-6 degrees, and absorb as well as reduce the noise of rain. These roofing panels are aesthetically designed, sound-proof and weather-resistant. Being corrosion-free, these panels require low maintenance and durable in nature, making them a cost-effective roofing solution.

Insulation boards help to keep floors, external walls insulated from heat/moisture ingress. They ensure an even temperature across the interiors. This insulation system is perfectly suitable for varying Indian climatic conditions.

So now no more waiting! Just go ahead & insulate your house against wet! Happy Monsoons…


What’s So Important About The Kitchen Anyway?

When a couple buys or builds a home, they always seem to pay a lot of attention to the kitchen.  With most couples, there’s usually one person who loves to cook; most often it’s the women.  For everyone, male or female, young or old, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house.  The kitchen is often the hub of the home, the center of activity.  Someone spends time preparing food, creating something fun, or trying a new recipe in it.  People tend to gather where there’s food.  So don’t miss this:  Kitchens are important!

Men sometimes underestimate the importance of this room.  We love our garages, grills, decks, and patios.  But the kitchen?  We can completely miss it’s importance.

It’s important to remember when you are designing a home to consider the resale value and design accordingly.  A well-designed and functional kitchen not only makes the cook happy, it also ensures a greater resale value.

A person who loves to cook or create culinary masterpieces for family and friends absolutely needs a spacious and well-appointed kitchen.  On the other hand, if a cook wants to spend as little time as possible in the kitchen, then your design and layout can be simpler.

When selecting kitchen cabinets, look for quality.  This is not the place to be overly consumed with trying to save money.  Well-made cabinets will provide lasting pleasure and functionality for decades.  Drawers (as opposed to cabinets with doors) are more useful and efficient even compared to cabinets with pullout drawers.  In addition, choose hard surface, durable, and high quality counter tops.  There are a variety of colors and selections available.  Granite is an ideal counter surface for the most important room in the house.

What about appliances?  Don’t skimp here, either.  You don’t have to purchase the absolute top of the line, but good quality appliances help sell homes.  Today it’s becoming very popular to have two dishwashers.  Often the cost of an additional dishwasher is only slightly more than the cost of the additional cabinetry it replaces.

In order to make the most important room in your house spectacular, consider adding some of these other features: warming drawers, double ovens, convection microwaves, pot fillers, espresso and coffee bars, hidden pantries, elevated dishwashers for easy access, vegetable sinks in the island, and purified water faucets.

When you design your home, be sure the kitchen is given special consideration and that its relationship to other rooms, functions, and features are the best you can provide.  It will make a difference for years to come.
