  1. Hi,
    I love your blog - stumbled on it by accident, and I thought I would write to you.
    This is an invite to come and take a look at Caprilicious Jewellery, either on Facebook or at www.capriliciousjewellery
    I have been making jewellery for the last two years, and my pieces are made for the Western / Westernised woman, but they all have a desi feel - not so strange, as I come from India. I would love to hear your thoughts on my stuff, and perhaps be showcased on your blog, if you find what you see interesting.
    Thanks a bunch, Neena

  2. Thank you Neena for the wonderful feedback. Loved the handmade jewelry line that Caprilicious Jewellery has to offer.We have a deal.

  3. Amazing blog. Good work Shruthi. Love it.

  4. Hi Sruthi,

    I came across your blog by chance this morning and have been pouring over it all this while. I am an artist myself and love the interplay of colors and of course all things Indian. Naturally I am drawn to your colorful pictures of home, shop profiles with unique Indian influences and the blog itself!!
    Thank you - Deeksha

  5. Hello there!
    What a beautiful blog you have! I was wondering if you could share where the cushion that is in the 3rd panel in your header is from. The one with the red cushion and a more neutral colored one behind it.
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Thank you Amahendra ! The fuchsia cushion cover was sourced from India, (Calcutta to be precise). Not sure about the store name as it was bought long back. But you get a closer look at it here and probably add it to your mood board/inspiration board and keep looking for something similar.............Good luck and thank you for stopping by.

  6. Hi sruthi !

    You have a wonderful blog here.. I have been totally engrossed in it. I am huge garden decor enthusiast myself.. something which started as experimentation with planters for my own garden area has landed me in selling them across online and offline plant nurseries.

    I am from a small town in tamilnadu and get my products hand crafted and hand painted by local artisans. Each of our product has a personality of its own!

    Do take a look at our website or our facebook page gardenia and let me know your thoughts..

  7. Just stopped by to say, your blog and especially the photography is "delicious"! For an art person, real eye candy. As an Indian living in Pune, it makes me realise how much of this beautiful colour, the prints and the brass is all around us, and we just take it for granted! Lovely! Keep it up.

  8. Loved your blog, accessories, pictures. Its a complete mood lifter. Proud of your blend of east and desi. Thanks you for your posts.

  21. Hi Shruti,
    I came across your blog recently and loved it, I want to decorate my home and need your help to do so can you please help guide me.
    thank you

  22. Dear East Coast Desi,
    Thank you for sharing images of your parents' home...beautiful, artistic and functional! When I was little, my mom would take me to Disneyland in California and I loved seeing all the pretty dresses the women from India wore while they visited Disneyland too. I was and am addicted to the beauty, style and patterns of the fabrics. Then I found your blog which is full of so many unique and stylish images.
    Thank you for sharing!!!!

  23. Hi Shruti,
    Came across your blog and I just can't stop admiring your beautiful work.
    Your aesthetic sense is amazing and how you renew the same pieces every time with a new flair is admirable.. As for me I'm a new mother and in the process of setting up my home in Singapore. Your blog is giving me so many ideas of how I can personalize and make it mine but I have 1.5 year old naughty boy who likes chewing anything in sight.. 
    Wow I have so many blogs to catch up on.. Glad the weekend is near..
    Lots of love.. Vini


Thank you for visiting The East Coast Desi. I'd love to hear from you.
