Eating Out in the Garden – Creative Architectural Design Idea

ImageNow wouldn’t it be remarkable if we all had place in our homes where we all could enjoy the sunset and an evening meal? Well, to be honest I do not know what we all Pakistani’s look for or are thinking because our first reaction is “It’s going to be expensive and time consuming”.

My point here is if people all across the world can do these projects themselves than what stops us, what it takes is to hire services of a reliable Interior designer in Pakistan who provides you with the ideas to fix this up. We all are capable of doing it. Let me explain how.

All those gardens at the front or at the back we have are not just for sitting and relaxing with an evening or morning tea. We can redecorate them with just a few minimum items and be done with it. They can turn out to be proper settings for evening informal dinners with family and friends. There are certain things that you might need like fluorescent lightings. These are available at all our local Shadi shops in Lahore that arrange the fireworks and lightings on mehndi’s and barats. You can just go and purchase a set from them for no more than PKR 2000- PKR 3000. They can serve not just as interior décor but can be used anywhere in the house for later celebrations as well. Second important thing is the furniture, rather than the plastic table set we all have a wooden bench would be just perfect. The wooden bench is a table which has the bench connected to it. All local furniture shops can have this made roughly, in the most rustic form for the same price you would get the set of 6 chairs and a table. The third thing that can help to finalize this all is a wooden frame. Yes, these can be made by the furniture guys from your local shops or you can even purchase them from stores. An artificial grape vine or a plant that sticks to furniture, lots of them are available at the local nursery, will finish it all up.

Set up the frame and the bench in a corner or in the middle of the garden and cover the frame work with the vine and the lights. Arrange them in any way you want and then stand back to see the glory of it all. In no time, you will have a perfect setting for an informal dinner with your in-laws, family, friends or you could even hold a bbq at your place.


Themed Interior in Pakistan

themed bedroom interiorHitting the interior design industry with a boom is the term “Themed Interior”, people in Pakistan are no longer sticking with traditional or old ways to decorate their home. They are more into themes now especially when it comes to Lounges and individual personal rooms.  Interior Designers in Lahore are now in touch competition to beat each other when it comes to bringing themes to someone’s room. Some are meshing local ideas with western, some are going Arabian and some a total western make over. But no longer are people stuck in cages of ideas where practicing anything new in your own house will be criticized.

Among the top interior themes seen in Pakistan are the following ones which are going with the personalities of their respective owners. An African theme is seen mostly in the lounges for all those who are in love with the wildness of their life and Africa. Amazing stripped rugs and wall paint is seen gracing the indoors. For all those budding writers we have with us we have the hand sketching and wall writing theme. Walls are covered with beautiful scripts and scrolls which show the love of a person for writing and reading. Often time’s huge images of books stacked together are also seen on the walls. For all our soft natured people we have the beautiful pastel shade floral patterns gracing their rooms and lounges. It gives a serene atmosphere and shows how subtle the nature is.

The trend I like to highlight the most in the indoor plantation concept which women in Pakistan are adapting with speed. It’s the most sought after trend where women need a piece of nature in their house probably the kitchen (Placement of herbs in small pots, like mint, coriander, chilies, Oregano etc.) At times the terrace is graced with flowers and a curtain of beautiful flowers and leaves is thrown towards to porch. It naturally acts as a barrier for wondering eyes. Which not only proofs that Pakistan is now changing trends when it comes to interior and ideas but also that anything is not possible in your own country.
