Musings by Raji Radhakrishnan

Happy Friday! As I plan my next project, all I can seem to think of is what I wore to my cousin's son's wedding in #California! Not really in a mood to work but the colors and workmanship do inspire me!!! Anyway, it was a bespoke pinkish red #Kanjeevaram #silksaree with borders and Pallu in silver-gold zari depicting the story of #Rama . I love this one!! I had a contrasting blue tissue #blouse made with custom #embroidery of a #flower vine on the sleeves paired with a semi-precious gems #choker @rajirmdesign #rajirmdesign #kanjeevaram #kanjeevaramsaree #silksaree #saris #indianfashion #indianwedding #jewelry #saree #wedding #indianjewelry #colorful #weddingtime #weddingseason #weddingfashion #handloom #style #tradchic #myphoto #whatiwore

The view by Raji Radhakrishnan

I think this view from our client's #kitchen and #breakfast area to their #foyer is sublime! This was a whole house gut #renovation and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome!! 📷 by @rikkisnyder @rajirmdesign #rajirmdesign #rajirm #whitekitchen #chevronfloor #interiordesign #interiors #instastyle

Raji RM Rijks Rug by Raji Radhakrishnan

Our #Rijks #rug layered over a red one at our client's home {available through our website}.

All dressed up! by Raji Radhakrishnan

Heading out to the #temple in one of my #Gadwal saris! I shelved this #sari for nearly six years since I bought it thinking I made a mistake with the #color but the bright yellow #cotton paired with a lovely deep #maroon and #green silk border with #silver #gold #zari is now one of my favorites! The #kemp #jumkas I'm wearing are about 33 years old since my #dancing days!!! #saris #yellow #silk #jewelry #dance #indianfashion #desifashion #indiansummer #rajirmdesign #style #tradchic

While I love #curating my #outfits and especially dressing up in #Indian clothes and #jewelry, at the end of the day nothing beats getting into my PJs or nighty!! 😂 But I do love the #accessorizing part!! #Multicolored #threaded bangles flanked by a pair of #gold #bangles I've had since I was pregnant with my son. The #anklets or #Payal is new bought last month in #India #saris #indianfashion #rajirmdesign #color #silk #handmade #handwoven #jewelrydesign #indianjewelry #style #tradchic

Taming A Large Room by Raji Radhakrishnan

A stately room made more human (and Modern) with multiple seating at our client's home. A bespoke rug, custom and vintage furnishings and of course art tamed this rather cavernous room and gave it the much needed character! #rajirmdesign @rajirmdesign #rajirmmurals #rajirmrugs #bespokerugs #artdeco #color #interiordesign
