Cinnamon, Bangalore

Priya and me were chatting away and laughing as we went into Cinnamon, Bangalore's lifestyle Store. But as we walked into the store, our chatter automatically turned into whispers. Thats the effect that Cinnamon has on you. Each tastefully displayed object speaks the language of understated elegance. And the frosted white panes with the all white decor further accentuates the feeling of walking into an art gallery more than a store.

passage lined with an elegant array of knick-knacks

I'd been looking for stuff like this for so long


Pops of colour make for interesting display

Shiny red candle stands

Interersting displays
and rare finds
are the strong point of this store

I really enjoyed shooting in Cinnamon, every where I turned was a gorgeous frame
...beautiful textures
....and intersesting shapes
But these delicate birds will remain my favourite image from my Cinnamon visit.

I love the "a z" bookends. My kids are Allison and Zachary and these always stand for them in my house!

First question...Did you buy anything? I had a similiar type store ...often I felt like I was just entertainment for shoppers...great admiration...no sales.

Awww, Vineeta, tell Susan what that stylish lady bought before our eyes.

Your photography is very good!

Hi Vineeta, I wish I could join you guys in your little explo-ventures! I have read about Cinnamon before, they have quite an interesting mix of modern chic and Indian antiques. Lovely photos as always.

Susan, Cinnamom has been in the business for close to 10 years- so I do think they sell. And like Priya said, we saw this lady pick up a really pricey designer jacket. I did pick up a few knick knacks as well. but I know what you are saying.

Arch, I SO know what you mean :) there are so many places in bombay I've not visited. For instance I think you featured Bunglow8 on your blog & I've never been there.

Dithi, just hop across. And the next time you are in Bombay, be sure to leave me a line. We will co-ordinate adn meet up :) and go shop hopping :)
