India Interior Design Blog


We brought you Sanghamitra’s home as a part of the stylish home contest, a while ago. Here, we share her story on designing and decorating her home in Singapore.

As you will see, she has created a wonderful home with much love and care. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did !

Do check out her inspirational blog – Rainbow -The colours of India


Even though I have a Masters in Economics, I have always been a creatively inclined, right-brained person.



My creative pursuits began early in life when I started the journey with music at the age of six.



I gave my first performance on All India Radio as a ten year old child and continued training as a vocalist in Hindustani Classical and Rabindra Sangeet for the next twenty years.


I also learnt Indian Classical dance for a good number of years and always had a keen interest in painting and creative writing as well.


Earlier, I worked as a freelance creative copywriter in Bengali on regional assignments with reputed brands like ITC Greetings Cards, Fairever (Kevin Care) and others.

Travelling, another passion of mine, has exposed me to a world of diversities – different civilisations, art and culture, and the diverse flora and fauna.



We came to Singapore on an expat assignment and moved into this 1300 square feet three-bedroom condominium in a posh locality. The condominium was handed over to us fully-furnished and decorated in the usual predictable Western style.


I wanted to incorporate my own ‘Indian’ elements in the interior design and styling, which turned out to be my biggest challenge.


It is much easier with an empty canvas, rather than modifying a painted picture. I started with effective space planning first, keeping most of the existing layout intact, while trying sangha40to recreate ‘a home away from home’.

    Beautiful Home Sanghamitra!
    Truly love the way you have infused all the Indian elements. The sofas, the carpet, the cushions & the decoration pieces all reflect an Indian feel. I’m sure the feel of the house always keeps you connected to India.
