This year we have decided to start by sharing life, career, and work stories from designers (we love doing that, and trust us...it works wonders). It is so inspiring to know about the back-story of a brand; from challenges to successes. With the constantly growing family of interior designers, architects and stylists; it is always good to seek them out, (and of course their opinions) to tell their own unique stories. This month we dedicated time to share a colour trend story stolen from London and New York’s fashion runways. So, whether the hues have…

Strikingly Beautiful A little late I am writing in, but I can’t thank TIHG enough. By far, the November 11th anniversary issue of TIHG was the best I came across in the last five years.

letter of the month

Inspirations Galore The December issue of TIHG was a bonanza. I loved all the feature stories on women. The magazine truly focused on empowering women. I am sure it will be an inspiration to all the women in India to become entrepreneurs in their own right. Also, what caught my attention was Wish List. I personally feel two pages are too less. TIHG has grown leaps and bounds in the last few years. Looking forward to features that will keep the readers plugged in. All the best for 2018. Trisha Mahajan, Mumbai…
