Art of Window Dressing


After filling your day with Beauty features yesterday, we are back with our 'Women at Their Creative Best' series today, one of our most liked series by our sincere readers! And why not? It always talks about women who believe in chasing their dreams, in doing what they want to do, rather what world is asking them to do. So, today once again we have a very creative profile of a women entrepreneur who is into the art of window dressing.
Window Passions India Pvt Ltd

Meet Amita Kanwar, Owner of Window Passions India Pvt Ltd, which was set by Kanwar and her husband more than 2 decades back. As the name says, the brand is into adding innovative design elements in terms of soft furnishing to your sweet home. Window dressing literally means adding curtains and blinds to your windows, but for the brand it's much more than that. " Drapes in your house speak a lot about your decor, and therefore it cannot be just some beautiful curtains, but a lot. There is a lot of creativity involved in that. It's an art how you beautify your windows, as they are like a style element to your rooms," said Kanwar when to did a telephonic interaction with her a few days back.


"Women must follow their dreams "
says Amita Kanwar 

Well, the  brand today is not just about mere blinds and some just curtains, but way more than that. Starting with window dressing from exquisitely worked, elaborate classic drapes to contemporary, new world designs, with the finest finials, tassels, tiebacks, rods, sheers, today they are accessorized with coordinated cushions, throws, rugs, wall hangings, coffee table covers and lampshades, just to name a few.
The brand customizes everything for that perfect window.
And, if you are thinking that their work is just about private homes and bungalows, you will wonder that Kanwar has
 been associated with the Oberoi group of hotels for over 16 years and have done the windows of The Oberoi Rajvilas, Jaipur, The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra, Ranthambore among others. Apart from this, the duo has also designed windows of the Palace on Wheels luxury train. Wow!
Later, we spoke to Kanwar about her idea of women doing what they want to do and she said, " There was a time when I was a mom to growing kids, and I use to make sure that once they are back home from their schools, no client of mine should disturb me, even if the assignment was important. I made sure to dedicate my afternoons to my children, as I knew that at that point of time it was important for me as an entrepreneur to be with my children. Today, after getting free from that responsibility, I as a woman 'm enjoying my work 100 percent. In fact, my son is a grown up now, and helps in business," she concluded.

Time to make your home a dream home with some creative touch to the place that brings in the positivity to your rooms!
