In the past few months, there’s been a tectonic shift in our lives. Nothing seems impossible anymore. We never thought we would ease into working from home so easily; we never thought homeschooling would become a norm, we never thought our work desk would so easily transform into our conference rooms, and well, we never imagined having virtual parties on Zoom! Our homes have become our epicenter. We will slowly get back to normal. We’ll gradually get back to routine. Albeit, a little different from the Pre-Pandemic days. But our homes will have evolved; evolved into our comfy yet well-equipped workspace, a vibrant and intellectually stimulating space for our children, as the go-to party destination for our families. Our homes have always been our nucleus, but never before has it enjoyed such an…

I like going out, more so because I like coming back home! While…

The headline of this feature says it all! Sharon Colaco Dsouza is amazingly talented at transforming just about any ordinary item, into a thing of beauty and quirk! So much depth and detail behind every piece and the harder we look, the more we come away amazed with the content and quality! Sharon repurposes discarded guitars into functional shelves or eye-candy storage units; she creates cake stands that are delicate, feminine and befitting of our baked goodies, her honey dippers are stunning creations…and the list goes on. At the core of everything she does, is the vision that it must be functional. Every little trinket or design that comes out of The Keybunch, that’s the name of Sharon’s design atelier, strives towards that goal. I absolutely love the beauty we find all around…
