Bring the Christmas spirit home.

Christmas

Ahoy Decemberistas! Christmas is here. Actually the warmest month of the year is here (definitely not weather wise though). This is the time to pile all the bad together and throw it off the 8th floor window. It’s time to usher the Christmas spirit by focusing on magic and love and turning your home into a miniature festival of joy. This is that time of the year when your home should exude a cheery feel and be warm and receiving for all kinds of happiness.
Start by decking up your favorite corners of the house. If you don’t understand the reason behind all the Christmas revelry, this time decorate your house not for others, but for yourself. You deserve to be happy, don’t you? From a fireplace with stockings to colorful lighting installations to posters on the walls to aromatic candles, there are so many ways in which you can spell festive. This article is aimed to kickstart your decorations and help you with a few ideas.

Start by accenting the white/light coloured walls of your house (and especially a white door if you have one) with the deep colors of an evergreen wreath and garland. Use one color to make a statement. Choose gold as your color as that will reflect the festive cheer. The entire wall doesn’t need to be painted gold though. Paint little wall frames and wall hangings with gold and add sparkle to it.

There’s nothing like the sight of a beautifully decorated home with dazzling lights, agree? Sass up this Christmas with twinkling lights that will add a soft glow at night and make it a view to behold even for strangers on the street. Sparkle is a holiday essential we believe.

If you haven’t bought your Christmas tree yet, hit the streets this weekend. Buy a plastic one if you belong to Phoebe’s school of thoughts. Add flowers, baubles, lights, bells and mistletoes. Don’t go by textbook ways of decoration. Whatever makes you happy should accentuate your Christmas tree. If you stay with your family/ friends, play Secret Santa and pack small gifts and keep them under the tree. If you are alone, this is the time to make yourself happy.

A good vibe- aroma/ music wise created is half the work done. This is also the time to go down the memory lane. When you hang lights all over your house try pinning pictures of your family and closest friends. This will definitely light up not just your house but the hearts of all your closest people. Place colorful, scented candles and glass beads in glass bowls on your centre table. Float flowers or petals in a large crystal or glass bowl and keep it next to it.

Intertwine fruits, feathers, pine cones and mini glass ornaments and form a wreathe that you can hang at the entrance. Clean the house properly, use room fresheners, make savoury delicacies and smile. Let there be light this Christmas. Let there be happiness.

Welcome the new Gateway to Mumbai

Tonight, let’s start all over again. Like it’s the first day of our life.

There is something about life that’s so poetic, so idyllic. After all you live only once. Why not make it larger than life? Right?
At Tata Housing Development Company Ltd, we make sure every house is built with dreams and passion and not just bricks and mortar.
Gateway Towers is one such archetype of living life scenically. Touted to be an iconic residential development in Mulund with world-class amenities meeting the standards of Tata Housing Development Company Ltd, the Callison-designed residential towers reflect a permeable building solution which creatively addresses high density housing without the look of traditional massing.

If you dream of flying and seeing the world from a height, then here’s the great news. This project has six residential towers that vary in height ranging from 31 stories to 41 stories, with the highest point at 159 meters. Presenting an inviting stance with the towers’ angle-positioned wings, the development will resemble a grand scale, traditional horseshoe-shaped Asian house with a courtyard opened toward the major highway. Exciting?

The project will include unit options ranging from 2 to 4 Bedroom condominiums to 4 & 5 BHK duplexes, triplex and penthouses. To break the uniformity of more than 950 dwelling units, the exterior design pattern will integrate prominent green spaces on sky bridges and roof terraces, which also provides more exclusive gathering spaces for tenants. Intriguing building façades will be formed through monumental cut-outs, shaded vertical garden scoop-outs and private garden balconies. Once you step out of the comfort of your house to even the balcony, prepare for views of the central public garden on the parking podium’s deck featuring an enticing community swimming pool, tennis courts and recreational areas.

Amidst the hustle bustle of the city, we tend to miss the greens and the peace of sipping tea under the blue sky amidst nature. But now no more. This property is an 8.5 acre land parcel located in Mulund (East), the queen of central suburbs of Mumbai, close to Mulund toll naka on the Eastern Express Highway. It overlooks Thane Creek to the east; part of the Ulhas River Estuary and a recognized Important Bird Area by the Bombay Natural History Society.
It’s time to break free. It’s time to breathe unfettered.
