Even before I introduce you to the amazing lady, who is a Blogger, Interior Designer, Compulsive DIYer and creator of the handicraft store, ‘IndyaKaleidoscope’, I have to tell you of my experience and interaction with her. When I started on the idea of my website, I wanted to speak to someone who had some experience in blogging. After all, being a blogger was a different ball game altogether. The only person I could think of was Preethi Prabhu. The reason being, we were classmates in high school and though not close, at least I was familiar with her. But I had my doubts, as it had been years since I last spoke to her. She was also very popular in the blogging arena and a successful interior designer. “Would she be able to make time? Would she help me? Would we hit it off well?” DOUBTS, I say! Well, I just called. She was so warm and friendly, all my doubts were forgotten and I immediately went over to her office the same day. I am still amazed, I spent nearly 3 hours with her that day, just talking, catching up, using her as a sounding board on what I wanted to do and generally offload all my apprehensions. She was just the person to help me. Her suggestions and experience as a blogger helped me set it all up. And there’s been no looking back after that. Thank you, Preethi! You have no idea how much you helped and inspired.
I have been planning to do an office tour of her space for quite some time now. Preethi’s design studio ‘Transforminions’ (such a cute name) reflects her personality, design and aesthetic sense, warm and collaborative spirit. A comfortable and inviting space, with many DIY projects, it is an inspiration. So let’s get inspired!
