    #MyHomeMyStyle: 'I enjoy mixing and matching & introducing a sudden pop of colour.'

    Earlier this year, designer-dressmaker Jolanda Gonsalves was thrilled to unveil her sewing studio in Muscat, Oman. While she was ready to sail full steam ahead, the Coronavirus pandemic had other plans. In the early days of the lockdown, she sought solace in her sewing space where she made and gave away close to a hundred reusable, reversible, cotton face masks. When not working, she and her husband Arvin have been enjoying their time together, cooking, drinking copious cups of tea and coffee and watching the odd Netflix show or two. “Arvin did a couple of virtual lockdown jams with some friends in other countries and I tried my hand at baking. I can now confidently say I bake a delicious Bole de Laranja after multiple baking fails,” she laughs.   Originally from Mumbai, the couple have called this 1BHK rental apartment home for the past four years. Its interior design is a reflection of their personal styles; Jolanda’s being more classic with elements of fun and Arvin's more contemporary-minimal. “I enjoy mixing and matching different elements and introducing a sudden pop of colour. I love to collect little keepsakes from all our travels and then find a little spot for them somewhere in our home. Arvin calls this clutter while I think each item has a little story to tell,” she says.The duo love hosting friends for game night or potluck parties and are looking forward to renewing this ritual once life normalises.(Jolanda Gonsalves is a designer-dressmaker who lives with her husband, Arvin, in Muscat, Oman.
