Home is certainly about those who live there, but a beautiful and comfortable home in terms of decor that matches your sensibilities is most people’s dream.
Some of us might have visited homes that would be as clean as a museum, or as messy as a bunch of kids left with paint tubs. Unmonitored. Some homes are so boring that we won’t find anything that’s noticeable, and some homes are filled with everything that shouts ‘see me’, but as a whole it doesn’t just make sense.
If you are reading this and your home doesn’t fall under any of these four categories, you are probably living in a home that’s a mixture of a combination of the categories above.
Everyone wants to make their home beautiful but many people do not have an idea about how they want to do it. Well… No worries! We’ve got you covered!
We have created a list of décor bloggers who with their creativity as their weapon, and with tons of ideas for us to choose from, will change your house for good! (The only thing that’s going to die here: the non-existing/ pre-existing décor of our homes).
Here is the lineup of the 10 décor bloggers in no particular order:
Rukmini, who lives in a tiny rental apartment in Mumbai runs this multiple award winning blog – Trumatter. She blogs about decorating homes to give them a breezy, airy feel.
For those of us who aren’t into bright colours, this blogger is all you need to follow to make up your homes with lovely shades of whites and neutral colours that open up the spaces, as well as add the cozy edge that we’ve been longing for. The best part is, everything in this blog isn’t dramatic: it is very doable, pleasing to the eyes as a matter of fact.

I watched a Tamil movie Kadaisi Vivasayi (The Last Farmer), recommended by my dad, on SonlyLiv, and many times over again since my first watch. If not for him, I’d have had no idea what I would have missed. What a piece of relevant and much needed art this movie is!
It is about an old farmer in a village (the only indigenous farmer left), who walks the path of trouble, quite unexpectedly, and tries to come out of it. I have tried my best to refrain from leaving spoilers, for I want the readers to certainly catch up on this masterpiece of director Manikandan (of Kakka Muttai fame).
The movie revolves around the farmer who goes about doing his everyday chores, sweeping his mud-house first thing in the morning, grazing the cows, etc and living a simple but contented life. He is happy doing his thing, until he invites trouble for himself out of the blue, primarily because he is illiterate and ignorant.
Alia Bhatt is pregnant and happy about it - it's not our job to accuse her of 'trapping' her partner into marriage or shaming her for the timing of it.
When Alia Bhatt announced that she and her partner, Ranbir Kapoor, were expecting a baby, all I could feel was joy. As a person who has been in awe of Bhatt’s acting skills and dedication, this news genuinely made my day.
However, the joy was soon replaced by anger and frustration when I read the first few comments (from certain unverified Instagram handles) on her pregnancy post. Here are the exact words of those who felt it was okay to question a woman’s choice:
“Baby k liye saadi kiye ho ya saadi k liye baby?” (Did you get married because of this baby or did you get married to make babies?)
