Magazine Feature: We are on "Curated"!!!!


“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you”

Dale Carnegie


Words to live by in the blogosphere! And that is exactly what is happening at Aalayam. A kindred spirit, who is also a fantabulous blogger - Priya, (Once Upon a Tea Time) reached out to Aalayam, to feature Deepa and I, our daily inspirations, our creative drivers and joie de vivre and of course get a sneak peek into our homes in her new Curated magazine!! 


Over hurried Whats App messages and long distance voice mail, Deepa and I reconnoitered to get our interviews ready, pictures scrubbed and profile shots "shot" to make it Curated ready!! We were supremely excited to be part of this venture because Curated is a veritable visual treat! Its fresh, sets a serious design tone with its boho-chic influences, and blazes the trail for all the bloggers in the business of self publishing. 



Priya, with a keen eye for design detail and a refreshing repertoire of verdant imagery punctuates Curated with oomph, style and tons of inspiration. 


Here are some snippets from our interviews and home tours on Curated. Peek into the magazine feature a lil, here, but make sure you click on this link to read the whole story!

Thank you for the immensely flattering showcase Priya. This project was a privilege for Aalayam. And tons of fun for Deepa and ME.  

Love,
Supriya

    1. Ambika - you are so sweet and propitious! Deepa and I strive to add that cerebral appeal to whatever we feature - be it culture, modern take on food and art, artist features or just decor. And I am glad the keen observer like you appreciates that.

      More power to you!
      Love,
      Supriya
