Inspiration & Beauty from Nirali Magazine

If you know Priya Patel from the the blog, Pomegranita, then you know that this lady has an amazing eye for color and design. In addition to Pomegranita, she's also the Creative Director of Nirali Magazine, your complete online source for all things South Asian, including politics, and trends in fashion, the arts, and entertainment in the South Asian community. It's a wonderful read for people of all backgrounds, but is especially valuable to brides of South Asian heritage that are busy preparing for their wedding right here in North America.

Priya mentioned that the current issue will be published in two installments. The first went live yesterday (June 4th) and the next will go live on June 18th. The magazine is covering 7 real weddings -- Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Christian and mixed religion marriages, and will feature the vendors involved, such as photographers, videographers, tent rental vendors, and South Asian fashion. Very helpful for brides-to-be!

Although I usually shy away from posting about weddings and fashion, with ethnic textiles being such a huge trend right now, along with all the bright jewel tones we're seeing in design, I thought this website may inspire you on many levels - and most importantly, increase awareness when it comes to all the wonderful cultures living right here in America.

Thanks Priya for writing to me and sharing Nirali Magazine with decor8 readers!
