Archana Srinivas’s niche blog on Indian interiors has generated much interest amongst netizens, MyBangalore explores more



Everyone at some point or the other has maintained a blog or has regularly followed their favorite blog on fashion, art or any other topic of their choice. Celebrities have also used blogs to communicate with fans which in turn has not only generated much media hype but also its fare share of controversy. For most bloggers their blogs are their voice to the world, and it’s important if the world is listening.

Bangalorean Archana Srinivas’s blog ‘Rang Décor’ is popular on the net when it comes to Indian interior design. She features interesting decorating ideas, best stores for furnishings, artists and different crafts, hotels with great interiors and even snapshots of creative corners of her readers from Israel and Dubai. ‘Rang Décor was started in January, 2007, just a couple of months after I started my personal blog  ‘Rang- The Colours of Life’ in which I share my various interests like photography, travel, art, chai & everyday musings. Rang Décor came into being at a time when there were very few blogs covering Interior Design from India. I wanted to showcase to the world, a blend of rich traditional and contemporary interior designs from India.’ Says Archana referring to how the idea of the blog was born.



Blogging is a perfect creative outlet for Archana who earlier dabbled in advertising and graphic design.  Having no formal training in interior design, she says it’s a passion which she readily shares through her blog. ‘Rang Décor is a design blog and having a creative background definitely helps, but I have seen some lovely design blogs by individuals driven by sheer passion for it.’ The blog has generated so much interest on the wed it has also been featured as one of the 16 international design blogs by Domino Magazine and BBC Good Homes Magazine also featured her home and blog. Another reason for Archana to celebrate is the recent feature of her home in Apartment Theraphy House Tours 2009. So if you’re stuck with a lack of creative ideas for your abode, we suggest you head to Rang Décor as Archana gives you tips on how to turn the ordinary into design elements.

Hi Archana,
 
I have visited your blogs many times. I completely love all the compositions. I like this kind of homes with warm colour tones, wood, brass and copper. I loved you Bangalore. Was kind of sad to know you have moved to another locations.
 
I loved the Ganesha work you did.
 
Hope to see lots of posts from you especially of diwali.

What a great experience it was..going through your blog! Thankyou for all the information shared. I love indian traditional houses and in the process of decorating an appt. My master bedroom  has a wall which is covered by a 6ft window to one end. Since the window is not centered  to the wall but to one end of it...it does not look good after placing the bed...because we see half window half wall behind the bed...how should i overcome this problem? I have considered covering the entire wall with a continous window curtain...but am afraid it might look like a movie curtain...what should i do??
 
Thankyou!!!
