Vaishnavipratima- The New Interiors Studio Opens in Goa

Vaishnavipratima is as unusual a studio as its name. Just like its name, it stands for uniqueness, uniqueness in approach, uniqueness in designs and uniqueness in attitude.

The Store

This interiors studio opened its doors on the 14th of September in Soccoro, North Goa. Expansively created in a 90-year-old Portuguese Villa, the visuals take your breath away right from the entrance. As you move in, the individually designed pieces of art start talking to you. One biggest uniqueness about the store is that no two pieces are identical, Pratima has carefully chosen it to be this way. Unless placed on order, all her designs are individualistic in nature.

The Collection

The store has both a mix of traditional and contemporary designs as well as ultra modern, chic and minimalistic designs. From bold chairs to rustic looking almirahs, sofa sets, lounge chairs, designer shelves, beds, colorful cushions, photo frames, paintings, artifacts, you name and its there. The huge villa has been beautifully designed with various sorts of art forming a cluster.

 

The first room of the villa showcases some beautifully designed and handcrafted furniture pieces. The color tones strike great contrast from subtle pastels to bold color pops, the area looks stunning with this combination of colors. This area showcases consoles, bookshelves, bar cabinets, wing chairs etc. and these all are made by Indian artisans.

Pop art dining couture and various artists’ works are on display in the second room. The third room comprises of an elaborate four-poster bed with cushions, throws, and rugs, giving it a very homely feel. There is also an open cafe area in the passage and back foyer of the villa and will soon serve exotic teas and bites.

This studio also houses some exquisite jewelry and designer apparel pieces; Chanderi Sarees designed by Prama and Pratima Pandey has designed the indo-western outfits and Bhavaa jewelry comprising of semiprecious gemstone collections. These have been introduced for the first time into the brand.

 

About the Brand

With its maiden store in Mumbai, Vaishnavipratima expanded its wings to Goa. Goa is the ideal choice as more and more people are investing in properties in Goa. And most of these properties are converted into villa homestays and resorts and thus the need for an exclusive interiors studio is obvious. Thus the brand opened up its second store in Goa with its signature collection and some add-ons like the jewelry and designer wear.

The Woman Behind the Brand

A self-made and self-taught interior designer, Vaishnavipratima started her passion by designing and redesigning her our house along with those of some close relatives and friends. In 2012, she thought of taking it up as a profession and started working on interior designing projects for other people’s home. The year 2016 saw her making it big by opening her first store in Mumbai. The store has a vast collection of home decor items that are customized and exclusively designed drawing inspiration from Pratima’s travel and aesthetic sense.

4 Wedding Traditions for the Modern Couple

There is a lot that goes into planning a wedding, including which traditions you will be incorporating into your ceremony and reception. In the past, it was unheard of for a bride to wear any other color than white as she walked down the aisle. However, things have changed over time and the traditions of previous generations don’t necessarily work for today’s more modern couples. Keep reading to see how you and your beloved can put a modern spin on your wedding while still incorporating traditions into your special day.

 

1. Embrace social media

Wedding hashtags and filters are the latest craze amongst soon-to-be newlyweds. Couples are now able to create their own unique custom geofilters specifically for their wedding day. This is a great way to tie in their theme for branding purpose and allow their friends and family to show off how much fun they are having on their special day. Wedding hashtags are quickly on the rise as well.

2. Have an unplugged wedding ceremony

While utilizing social media throughout your reception is on the rise, asking your guests to limit their cell phone use during the ceremony is also becoming increasingly popular. More and more newlyweds are asking their friends and families to silence their phones and put them away during the actual wedding ceremony. This makes it so there are no distractions and your friends and family can be present and in the moment with you as you exchange your vows.

 

3. Put the focus on your guests

Of course, weddings are all about celebrating the bride and groom, but they’re also for the guests to have fun. Rather than focusing all of the wedding details on the newlyweds, couples are putting more emphasis on the overall guest experience when planning their weddings. Newlyweds are booking a variety of unique vendors and performers all for the sake of giving their guests a night they’ll never forget. From dancers to live painters to digital dance floors, the possibilities are endless!

 

4. Find music that speaks to your relationship

Long gone are the days of walking down the aisle to classical music or the traditional bridal chorus of “Here Comes the Bride.” Couples are now choosing songs that speak to their relationship. As the bride walks down the aisle she wants the guests to reminisce along with her and the groom to songs that are fun, sentimental, and romantic. So don’t be surprised if you hear a string version of one of your favorite songs at the next wedding you attend!
