Mind Blowing Interior Solutions from REHAU…!

REHAU, a brand that is known for producing premium products, recently inaugurated a new showroom in Delhi. One step in the REHAU showroom and you know what interior solutions you want your dream home to have. For a company that designs and manufacturers bumpers for Audi and Mercedes, luxury and class are synonyms, and when such a company forays into interior solutions one can expect nothing but the best.
I recently visited their newly opened showroom in Kirti Nagar, and one look at the place and I was in awe of it.
With a guided tour of the place I was shown around and explained in detail about each and every product provided by REHAU. It was one of the most interesting ways of engaging with a customer I have ever come across. Normally what we see is, that when we enter a showroom, we are only told about the things we are interested in, but here the fun part was seeing and knowing about everything that not only makes it insightful but also increases the trust in the capabilities of the company. Also each section was lead by a specialized team representative. I was first introduced to the section that dealt mostly with kitchen solutions, but the products can also be used in bathrooms, office cabinets, retail showrooms etc. This range included edge bands, laminates with a look of glass, shutters and plinth systems. Edge bands, now I never thought that edge bands could also look so cool and enhance the entire appearance of our drawers or shelves. The range of colours is so vast and vibrant that it will leave you confused which one to go for and also they come in different sizes to suit your needs.
Coming to their acrylic laminates, goodness, one cannot make the difference whether it’s a laminate or a glass, it’s just the ideal kind of finish you would want for your kitchen. The colours are fantastic and the metallic range has a real classy appeal about it, it will help giving your kitchen that premium and rich look. I have already chosen the colour I want to go ahead with.
The most exciting thing I saw in the showroom was the shutter solutions, now these have a long way to go in the field of both home and retail interiors. I am totally in love with them. They look so cool and happening, so convenient and interesting. They just change the complete appearance of your kitchen shelves. I liked both the metallic and glass finish shutters but definitely the ones with glass finish had more chic appeal. I personally found the hand sensor based which opens with a touch of a hand and closes with a gentle touch of a hand, just amazing. I am dying to use it for a bar at my home. How cool it would be if I have this shutter on my bar and utter a cool ”khul ja sim sim” and the shutter beautifully goes up and opens, I am sure my guests will have loads of fun watching it and be a little jealous too J. Oh boy, what an amazing moment it would be, I so look forward to do it sometime soon.
The other amazing section that caught my attention was their window solutions, I mean you just have to visit their showroom, see it for yourself to believe it. It’s just mind-blowing. The ease of cleaning, the safety, adequate lighting, adequate ventilation, everything has been kept in mind in designing each and every window at REHAU and you just fall in love with them, at least I did.
And not just the elements of beautifying the house or office or retail spaces, REHAU also boasts of some technologically advanced infrastructure features like rain water harvesting, controlling the inside vs outside temperatures through their windows and doors, and also the noise controls, they even have some amazing technology which keeps the temperature of the buildings in control. I was simply amazed by their sheer quality, technology advancement and interior and construction solutions.
Its definitely a place worth visit if you are planning a make over for your home, or even if you aren’t, drop in at REHAU and you will be compelled to make some changes for sureJ. Watch out this space for, as I would be detailing out a few things in a couple of blog posts to follow. changes my opinion of online shopping changes my opinion of online shopping changed my opinion of buying clothes online. Online shopping today is as common as shopping on ground, and it’s primarily due to the lack of time in everyone’s life. I am no different, juggling between work and family life, sometimes online shopping seems like a convenient option and since a couple of years I have been regularly making use of online shopping especially to buy random articles, groceries, house-hold items, electronics etc. but I have never been comfortable buying clothes and shoes online. 

Both these things mean comfort and comfort is something I cannot reassure myself by just looking at it. I always got attracted with the numerous designs and styles available online, especially in terms of dresses, but the urge to touch and feel always ended up acting as a resistance in buying the same, also I felt that buying clothes online was much more hassled than other things, as it usually takes a long time to deliver, whereas when you seeing clothes, you really wanna get them as soon as possible, and the possibility of size going wrong is also high, but this time,, beat me there.  There was this particular dress that I saw on’s site and I had an instant liking to it. It was a perfect summer things, cool colors and yet a very party like appeal, the material was silk. To me it seemed like a perfect weekend night-out wear. As usual I started contemplating the decision to buy, but this time the urge to buy was more, and my hands just moved towards the add to cart button, and following simple steps my order was placed. 

I was surprised with the ease of placing order on the site and also the swiftness of confirmation mail and message reaching my inbox, but the bigger surprise came when my dress was delivered in just 2 days, much before the expected date of delivery. 

My dress was very cutely packed and fitted me perfectly when I tried it. The material, the look and feel was as similar as it appeared on the site and absolutely correct as per the description. I could not wait for the weekend to wear my dress and head out to party. 

I am really impressed with the speed, the quality and variety of designs and styles on and it has definitely helped me overcome my inhibitions, so think no more, go shopping at

Summer Cookshop by Chef in a box

Summer Cookshop by Chef in a box

CHEF IN A BOX (CIAB) is a new concept to re-create chef style dishes at home with the help of professional chefs themselves. The idea is conceptualized and curated by Gayatri Iyer, a young dynamic entrepreneur, who wants to express her love for food. The concept is one step ahead of the online delivery of ordering cooked food right at your doorsteps.
The idea helps consumers to order recipe kits that include all the measured ingredients and clear steps of instructions for cooking. The USP is that it comes directly from a Chef/restaurant’s kitchen to ensure authenticity and quality of the ingredients, so the Chefs do the shopping for you (literally!). Currently the market space that Chef In A Box caters to is Delhi-NCR (currently delivering in South Delhi, West Delhi and Gurgaon).  It aims at giving people a chance to cook exotic dishes such as Khao Suey, Mutton Kosha and Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins to name a few, just like the experts. They have the flexibility to simply follow the instructions or use their creativity to add some twists to the recipe.

“I want to change the way people look at food and break the monotony of eating pre-cooked food or takeout. People do love to cook and I want to give them a seamless experience in doing so by giving them everything they need (well almost, they would still need the cooking appliances etc.” says, Gayatri Iyer, Chief Creator and Owner, Chef In A Box.
The popularity of the concept of recipe kits in the US gave the window for the concept to grow and to bring this to India. The twist in this idea of not having your own kitchen but relying on the Chef’s, restaurant’s kitchen and expertise. Chef In A Box does not have its own kitchen and we are ensuring that the ingredient come directly from the Chef’s kitchen, because that way we ensure authenticity, freshness and quality of ingredients.
CIAB also conducts workshops under the ‘Chef’s Secret Series’name, which aims to bring together cooking, food enthusiasts and the Chefs face to face. The aim is to allow cooking enthusiasts get an insider view of how the Chef’s work their magic. They have successfully conducted a Chocolate Making workshop in February and on popular demand did a Healthy Baking workshop on 7th May. Now its all set to do a Summer Bookshop on 4th of June.

Gayatri Iyer is a multifaceted dynamic young person and is currently the Chief Creator and owner of the platform whose love for creativity only exceeds her love for food by a small bit. One may think that in order to be in the food industry, you would either have a Godfather or be associated with food in terms of being a Chef or baker. But, none of that holds true for her. She was in a plush corporate job with American Express for 5 years, surrounded by the fanciness, which a corporate has to offer but that was just one part of her life. The other exciting part of her was the creative side who used her weekends and time off to author a book Life’s Macchiatio-A collection of your stories, learn traditional art like Gond and Phad art and is now a contributing artist selling merchandise on
The spirit to do something of her own and to channelize her creativity gave birth to Chef In A Box. Outside of work, she is physically active through Yoga, tennis and any other way to keep fit and also do her bit for animal welfare in the city by adopting and feeding stray dogs.
