This is Milgy’s home in Kochi, a city in the southern state of Kerala in India. It’s a 1650 square foot newly built apartment. After living in rentals for 11 years, this is the first home she has owned. They love the plentiful light, breeze and sweeping views of the city from the 23rd floor. Everything in their home brings back memories of the different places they have visited or lived in – India, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Istanbul…Every object has been collected over the years from all these different places. Rugs from Istanbul, paintings by a New York street artist, curtains from Indian textile shows, a much used IKEA kid’s chair which has been travelled with them from California to Kochi. The home also has an eclectic collection of antique hand-me-down, custom-made, straight off-the-shelf, and even discounted floor-model furniture. The decor is inspired by a love for Indian fabrics (indigo, block prints, ikat), books, simple functional furniture and an attempt to avoid clutter as much as possible. Via
