I never understood bird watching, train spotters or people who dedicated all their recreational time to learning about woodfire, whisky/golf/baby alpacas (insert whatever..) but now I am a stepwell enthusiast I SO get it.

One of my favourite Indian-isms ... ‘he has expired’. You would not be expired for quids! #theschoollovesindia

@flicbailes mark making with handmade indigo by @dyptsimonmarks under the heady influence of Jaipur’s glorious Albert Hall, (1887) a monument devoted to so many architectural styles yet so utterly digestible.#theschoollovesindia
I don’t know what to do or say about this, so I am just parking it here. #theschoollovesindia here the birds chirping on Stories (or come with us next March, link in profile). #dsflowers
Diwali preparations well underway! Every tailor has his foot to the floor, no upholster is interested in making my elephant grey leather yoga blocks and people are painting their entire house new colours! (imagine Christmas Eve/End Of Financial Year/ Easter / New Year’s Eve and your BFF’s birthday all wrapped into one moment, celebrated by almost every faith and your whole city gets strung with lights and candles and parties, gambles, loves, forgives/forgets and feasts all night long!) #theschoollovesindia
Meet my new parents, adoption papers complete! More on Stories of what my new family business grows and sells...
well well well, so @the_lestrange and I walked into @barpalladio chasing a quiet Aperol and ended up crashing a very private and very fabulous party by @brucekeebaugh. What a night 🍊🌴🤸🏾‍♀️ and the joy of seeing you Will was as magnificent as the Palladio marigold mega balls. #goheidigo

Counting down the days till I am here again. Last time I was at the rose farm, stories didn’t exist so I can’t wait to show you to hard labour, grit and toil of extracting rose oil from the petals as a complete contrast to this mound of heaven. Or better still, come with me to Pushkar, India and meet the amazing women and men who do this work next March. You will never smell the same again.

Thanks for all the great driving this week Raj and for all the great looks. 🕶
just add the sound of pollinating bee’s buzzing and Indian beer tops popping.

Years ago I photographed Stephen @jolson_architecture own home and was breathless by both his architectural hand and his wanderlust. His space was sharp but countered with the most beautiful large (I am talking 5 feet tall) portraits of Indian tribal men and scenes of Bhutan. He told me how he would reward himself with a trip sometimes even just for a weekend to climb a mountain or see a sight after a big block of work. This really stayed with me, the idea of going to places that weren’t luxurious in appeal yet the very definition of luxury, and his idea of nature and the built environment being so interdependent. (And totally unrelated, but does this beautiful botched up building remind anyone else of coconut pistachio barfi / nougat) #🍋🥛🌱🍯🍫#foodtrackedmind
Everyone should know the local way to say, ‘hello I am xx, I’m interiors obsessed, can I please come in..’. (My Hindi version of this note is on Stories incase you find yourself wanting to look behind those beautiful jharoka’s too, as well as some other interior moments I caught in kind strangers houses. I also found a powder blue metal champagne cork and cage chair paired against a merlot side table on parchment terrazzo and couldn’t cope with the colour combo so I put that on stories too).
In my defence it was a full moon last night and I am here largely unsupervised.

👉🏼 It smells like frankincense, cedar and patchouli and I’m drinking post-desert whisky here now, if you can even believe it, because I almost can’t.
Breath of Marshmellow... sorry I really should have straighten this picture up but it would mean you would miss this lovely side splice of afternoon Indian light. They even have marshmellow grout. #marshmellowbreath
