India has always been a treasure trove when it comes to home décor and a range of intricate elements of design, which has continuously evolved its retail space as well. In the early ’90s—when the city was far more sleepier with lesser hustle and bustle—I remember spending Sundays in New Delhi with my parents visiting The Blind School (an insider’s secret at the time) for their pottery exhibitions and then driving down to Janpath to stroll through the state emporiums that ran along the length of the road for authentic handicrafts and linens for our home. Over time, as life got busier and traffic rose alarmingly, we’d restrict our shopping to one particular spot at a time, such as a neighbourhood market or the infamous Dilli Haat, and make do with whatever that particular place had to offer. And, as malls started to sprout up, we’d pick the one that was nearest and preferably housed as many of the brands we were looking for.
However, as much as India has seen homegrown and multinational brands take over the home décor industry, there’s still a need to have a one-stop-shop for a consumer to have everything under the same roof and ease the process of shopping for a range of products for a house.
A STORE WHERE YOU CAN FIND EVERYTHING IN ONE PLACE
Bearing witness to the industry for almost eight decades, Asian Paints has evolved its products and services time and again to cater to and accommodate a consumer’s need to create the perfect home. For this, the paint giant created AP Homes as a destination to bring together several brands across every home décor category under one roof.

AN AP HOMES STORE WILL HELP YOU VISUALIZE YOUR DREAM HOME
While it is a treat to have everything available at your convenience in one place, sometimes it can be overwhelming to see too much at one go, often leaving you uncertain or indecisive. While a particular furnishing or accessory may seem chic, if you’re not sure about how it might look in reality in a space such as a bedroom or home office, take a peek into the various rooms that have been created around the AP Homes store, which have been styled for various moods, styles, tastes, and preferences. If you’re eyeing that ethereal, diaphanous fabric for your drapes, but aren’t sure if it will match the rest of the linens and colour scheme in your bedroom, take a peek into one of the mood spaces and play mix-and-match on the furniture laid out to get a visual idea of how your space will tie together.
