When I heard about the Tanishq ‘As Beautiful As Her Work’ contest, I knew I had to write about Simran Dhaliwal.
From a busy professional, to a mom caring for her little one, Simran has done it all.

Regardless of her role, she lives in the moment and loves what she does. And it shows in the gleam in her eyes, her radiant smile, in her home, in everything she does! Charming and cheerful, she brings a smile to everyone’s face. Her interests and projects are varied – home decor, craft, food, fashion, photography, travel … all things bright and beautiful! Always learning, loving and living!

She brings in elegance in everything she does. The lovely lady brings in colour and cheer…

Into her home, made warm and welcoming with these inviting cushions and eye-catching curios. The perfect mix of colour and contrast, her home is a visual treat.

Into the lives of loved ones, be it an anniversary, V-day or a birthday.

She makes life beautiful for friends too.

She brings eye-candy into the hearts and homes of blog buddies too. Simran’s hugely popular blog features tips on home decor, virtual tours of stores, craft tutorials and other such glorious things.

Letting the light in! On Diwali…


Or any ordinary day, to fight the blues away!

Making the mundane bright and beautiful – not everyone’s cup of tea!

And her love for pretty things!


If you think those trinkets are lovely, wait till you see the gorgeous lady herself! Beautiful inside and out, Simran is now working on getting fitter with her latest project – training for her first 10K run!
