Archana Srinivas runs the popular blog — Rang Décor — which is one of India’s leading blogs on design and décor. She started this blog four years ago, at a time when Indian design and décor did not have much visibility in cyberspace.
Her focus was primarily on the “Indian” element in design — featuring traditional Indian crafts and artists, travel hotspots and homes. One of the reasons why she has stayed on the top of the Indian design blog scene is her consistent approach. There is a clarity and depth of purpose that is quite unique and her personal touch has touched the hearts and homes of her readers over the years.
Like many bloggers who have since ventured into this arena, one of the most satisfying aspects has been the ability to connect with such a wide spectrum of people, while sharing a design aesthetic that is intensely personal.
Her home has been featured on Apartment Therapy, Decor8 — both international portals on home living of great repute. In India, she has been featured in several leading interior design magazines and newspapers, in addition to websites and blogs.
Her passion for photography has allowed readers to be inspired and over a period of time, she has developed this talent in other ways. A background is creative roles from advertising and web design to photographer and design blogger has enabled her to infuse Rang Décor with the colours of her inspiration.
Rang Decor features interior design ideas which are inherently Indian in its sensibility. My love for the rich traditional art and crafts of India is quite obvious in my blog and the same extends into our home.When we decided to pick up an apartment in one of the high-rise buildings in Bangalore, we wanted our home to reflect our passion for traditional Indian style. We have incorporated a traditional South Indian bungalow-style into a penthouse which was challenging but nevertheless extremely fulfilling.The ‘corners of our home’ series came into being mainly because I believe our home is ever-evolving in terms of décor and I love changing the arrangements based on seasons or occasions. I am passionate about antique furniture, traditional Indian art and craft, handcrafted art and use them liberally in our home. I love styling with fresh flowers, natural elements, traditional artefacts and memorabilia picked up during our various travels. I lean more towards a simple traditional style. Anything old with a history has my full attention.
