A do-it-yourself (DIY) home filled with personal, idiosyncratic elements, one that is a mix of tradition and modernity—that’s the contemporary, urban Indian home, if you were to judge by the blogs on home design. Not necessarily professional designers, but with an interest in design, textiles, art, advertising and photography, these bloggers travel, shop, collect and hoard for their homes. Whether it’s an extreme makeover like painting a wall black or just tiny, beautiful solutions for transition spaces, three bloggers show us how you can be your own interior designer.
