editor’s note

Recently I visited a friend’s native home which is a very charming old home filled to the brim with wonderful prim items. A home which is a mix of diverse, contemporary artwork with many memorabilia from travels to make it feel like a truly unique space. While we were driving back to grind, I thought of having a second home, which will be more of a weekend escape filled with beautiful views, copious amount of good food and lazy evening walks. Ah! The entire weekend will be a long, wonderful dream that I would never want to end. With so many ideas spinning in my head, I have tried to dedicate the issue to beautiful homes and amazing destinations across the world. The private villa in Albania (Pg 112) is a…

Modern Outlook It is said that change is always for the good. In the same way, in the last one year whatever changes TIHG has undergone has been done keeping in mind the readers interest.

Truly inspiring to hear from these greats and lock in on some tips and techniques. It also gave me a boost to continue to hone my skills and has got my creative juices flowing. My goal now would be to keep at it, try different kinds of papers and techniques, template creation and someday be able to sell my work. Thanks a ton Ideal Home for somehow helping…

Product of the Month Launched in 2015 the new form ONO by Thomas represents one of the most sustainable product concepts and designs of the new year. The design has now been named winner of the 2017 Green Good Design Award. The award identifies and emphasises the world’s most important examples of ecological and sustainable design for our world environments. ONO’s well-thought-out details make it an impressive piece both as part of a complete service and combined with other highly unique individual items. A natural combination of materials with elements of wood, silicone, glass and wire mesh accentuates the modern look and turns the design into a versatile all-rounder that is just as suited to the requirements of everyday use as it is to large family parties with their array of…
