The 3BHK apartment in Mumbai, is conceptualised against a neutral canvas. Wooden elements lend warmth; while jewel tones and brass accents add personality to individual spaces. For instance, the living room’s grey palette – inspired by a wallpaper – is offset with colourful furniture and art. Movable pieces of furniture here, offer flexible arrangements for when the residents entertain.
Another prerequisite for the living space was, “no television,” says Rittika. So the master bedroom was converted into a family/guest room. The resultant space is multi-functional with a seating nook, sofa-cum-bed and plenty of storage within a slim, floor-to-ceiling wardrobe.
The home is also filled with customised pieces of furniture that capitalise on every nook. Examples include, a Mid-Century Modern-inspired sideboard for shoes, a bar unit with brass inlay work, and a headboard that tucks into the window alcove of the master bedroom.
The dining area is set against the wall to ensure uninterrupted flow along the adjoining passageway.

"They pretty much had this balcony in mind when they said, ‘All good things come in small packages,'" says Rittika. The tiled ledge makes for a practical and convenient bar counter.
The family room is a multi-functional space in calming pastel tones. A sofa-cum-bed ensures guests are comfy.
One of the smallest rooms in this home, the master bedroom is minimalist. "What it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in warmth and style. There's a sense of openness as you step into the room," says Rittika. The bed fits neatly into the window alcove; a floor-to-ceiling mirror on one wall creates the illusion of space.

Bev Priestman didn't temper expectations during her introductory press conference as coach of the Canadian women's soccer team last October. Priestman inherited a side that won back-to-back bronze medals at the Olympics under former coach John Herdman, and another third-place finish this summer in Tokyo would mark an unprecedented achievement for Canada. But Priestman, who served as an assistant under Herdman at the 2016 Games in Rio, began her reign as head coach by setting the bar much higher.

NEW YORK (AP) — First they lost James Harden, then Kyrie Irving, and finally the Brooklyn Nets lost their lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Though the series is tied, the Milwaukee Bucks are way ahead in the health category. Down to Kevin Durant as their lone healthy superstar, the Nets limp home to host Game 5 on Tuesday, a team that once piled up points with ease suddenly struggling to cobble together much offense at all. “This is what it’s all about in the playoffs, is you’re going t
GOTEBORG, Sweden (AP) — The Swedish soccer federation filed a police report Tuesday after striker Marcus Berg was subjected to a flood of social media abuse and threats from fans after missing a late chance against Spain at the European Championship.

He received a torrent of abuse online after the game and team officials said some of the posts contained il
