Palwasha Khan – My Creative Clutter


Interior artist extraordinaire, Palwasha Khan’s work is fascinating to say the least. Anyone can decorate a home, but this lady performs magic. She takes old furniture, about to be discarded and breathes beauty and life into it. The icing on the cake? She works with a shoe-string budget! From being a wife, teacher, to an administrator in a school, to taking on the role of a personal development manager to dabbling in fashion and interior design, Palwasha now has the toughest job of all- she is a work-at-home-mom.

She runs a blog titled www.mycreativeclutter.wordpress.com as well as an online group-both initiatives encouraging people to reuse old, ostensibly unusable furniture to create stylish new household items. Her aim is to bring the culture of furniture recycling to Pakistan with the hope to inspire more people to try their hand at up-cycling projects, with locally available products. Isn’t that all kinds of amazing? Read on and be inspired.

Luckily for me, I often happen to come across people who are very inspiring. These people lead useful and busy lives. They juggle a lot and they juggle very well. They are not on the planet to turn oxygen to carbon dioxide, but to make a change. Slowly and gradually, they are making minor changes that are making a difference. These people and their lives need to be celebrated. Here (on this tiny space on the blogosphere where there is not much traffic yet) I am sharing their stories, in a very small interview that will serve as a glimpse into their lives. Read More →
