Today, we celebrate significant milestone of 100th post of Pinkz Passion which seemed nearly impossible when I started to cut and paste my dream of diving into the ocean of design experience and décor mantras through my blog. Shuttling between my buffering thoughts, and sheltered existence, my blog kept building on the idea of nursing my passion of love and décor. However, it was not always sunshine and rainbows, but I just started following what I loved and everything seem coming together. Crossing the path with same minded friends, who sprinkled much love and response, strengthen the intuition and hence here I am, pushing the boat out for the 100th post on the blog :).
As we mark 100th post and Mother’s Day the same week, I want to celebrate by raising a toast to the platoon of women, mothers and bloggers who has had and still holds the charmed title of “blog guru” in my eyes and they are my absolute favorite boldfaces of blog fraternity. For no specific reasons, they all tie at the top of my blogger’s list.
The mutual thread of traditional style, that I personally favour, is binding all of my favourites together. Sit back, relax and savour the cocktail of MY favorite bloggers and their equally creative homes, which not only characterizes their style minded personalities but also prompt their creativity. Most of the names you will recognize as they are the leading bloggers in the crowded world of Indian décor blogging.
A blog and a home with a perfect fusion and function of globally-desi style. Shruthi’s true labour of love, her blog, is still making décor headlines. TECD's stars, are on rise by working steadily, who recently made Shruthi bag away "Facebook Decorista "of the year award under her belt. Shruthi's unique ideas and creative flair have shined a lantern on my path strongly and she still continues to impress next wave of new décor bloggers, where she is serving global design inspiration via confident mix of her heirloom pieces and cheering diverse home tours of real homes.
Rich details, on Anu's MDC, have inspired many like me, where I spent hours repeatedly gazing on her posts and leave with a deep impression on every visit. Anu's home is a great mix of style that is flexible and continuously evolving. I love how glorious little touches of antiques are updated in her home successfully with contemporary details. Anu’s online boutique, with plethora of global décor goodies, has won many tasteful and traditional collectors' heart.
S&S is where fashion fanatic, Jayashree, a lady with a beaming megawatt smile, passionately pours her heart and eye on fashion, art and travel via her blog. Never short of admirers, has Jayashree put forward her glamorous side in her home with explosion of wit and confidence. An art-savvy, whose love for 'Madhubani' runs deep, has also opened an outlet of teaching the art, where her creativity is being shared with other like minded souls. Each and every blog of hers, where she plants her thoughts into beautiful words, is very well received .
I love the way; Aalayam has laced ethnic simplicity via their blog. If you are a cultural decor buff, there is a fat chance of you falling in love with Aalayam, which executes traditional aspects deeply. In the midst of all the twists and turns of life, with their acts of creativity, they have set an example of possibility and passion. Aalayam blog, flavoured with Indianity, is breathing on heaps of praise and love of their readers.
It is Archana’s profound desire to inspire others made her find her true calling (another “Rang” of her life) as young as in 2007. Rang decor blog is an extension of her creative soul, centred on one shared mission of serving others. I love the way, her home is dotted with fanciful and unexpected traditional touches. Archana, who has essayed the weighty role as a blogger, also embraces a title of chai aficionado, a powerful photographer and now entrenched more deeply in her creative persona by launching the brand of “Archana Srinivas Pottery” recently.
So, these are the blog pundits, who have top the bill in my book of women, where I look up to feed inspiration and motivation repeatedly. Their arresting, simple, and practically “desi” articles capture zeitgeist of home décor. However, reading these prolific bloggers might lead you to loose several hours of your life, which I assure, will be a pure joy and delight on every visit.
This honorary 100th post in salutation of these intelligent bloggers would not have been completed without an emphatic positive response from all of the above. Thank you all of you for making this honest and no extra sugar coated post happen :).
As we wind up today's post, signing out by wishing you all a very Happy Mother’s Day to enjoy with that extra little pampering and extra little cuddling! Until we meet again, stay connected on Pinkz Passion's facebook page or Instagram feed, toodles!
