nilaya:bandhej:pune

during one of my visits to senapati bapat road recently i chanced upon this beautiful store nilaya. i am sure most of you know about it already.
it is a beautiful store located opposite the audi showroom on senapati bapat road  and i fell in love with it as i entered. it is soo exciting to get to know about a place just by chance....without anyone telling you about it...adds to the whole fun of it doesn't it?
i was lucky i met the owner aarti and got chatting with her about the store. the store largely stocks bandhej garments (i talked about bandhej here) and furnishings, accessories and artifacts from all over. a must visit if you find yourselves in pune!

the store has a beautiful court yard filled with plants, bells, vintage garden furniture...so beautiful that i could picture a french cafe here!






the store regularly hosts exhibitions and workshops on their premises.



gorgeous i say! i am thankful to aarti who most graciously let me click away in her store...

do check it out!
