There are some people in your life who make you feel fortunate for just having met them. You feel you've have done some good to merit their presence in your life. Chitra Vishwanathan for me is one such person. She is like sunshine in the room, one of the most honest, confident & inspiring women I've ever met. The sheer amount of energy & enthusiasm she brings to the room & everything she does, is something you need to experience 1st hand to believe. She used to be a fellow art director & colleague & then she moved cities & went back to Bangalore from where she came. She now teaches a bunch of rather fortunate kids at Bangalore's Wigan & Leigh College. It's good to have a teacher who can be an inspiration to you.
I shot her house in snatches at night & early morning after she packed her kids off to school. So these are rather hurriedly taken pics of a beautiful home & in this case an excuse to write about Chiti on my blog.
The simple but beautiful neatral tones in the living area. I really liked this olive rough finished centre table, with french poster art coasters.
Another book shelf with a beautiful mirror above it reflecting a yellow wall with black n white photographs.
A black and white framed madhubani hangs above an interesting lamp placed on an 'wheel' wrought iron stand
Part of Chitra's lively kitchen. The fridge holds memoirs from Chitra's travels to various countries.
Chitra has always told me that all her interior decor attempts ended at buying 'one more' plant. She loves her plants & they grace her kitchen...
