On Monday I moved out of my residence in Malad East which served as my residence as parish priest of St Jude Church, for the last six and a half years. The residential complex is now undergoing major repairs. I moved into an apartment int Orlem on second Dominic Lane.

I fell in love with the apartment the minute I stepped in; it was bright and airy with wonderful breeze that keeps the place well ventilated. Since this is a rented apartment, I had to respect the landlords sentiments. One of the great challenges was the kitchen. Being a chef by profession, I love to have my spices at hand and the home had very little storage. Being an artist I wanted to combine art and convenience together.

In order to preserve the tiles in my new residence and without drilling a hole in them, a board was mounted with fitting metal legs.The screws is all that holds the top of the board to the wall. Painted in black board paint, it serves as a medium to write notes and labels in the gaps. The colours of the kitchen items and the  spices accentuate the kitchen space. The wall also serves as a space for memorabilia; like the cup given to me by my brother Sean D’Souza to celebrate the Christmas of 2000, the year of my ordination.

Spread the love ♥
