Please read about it here https://thestudiobangalore.com/press-coverage.php Cheers Nandita PS: If you have a question to ask then please note: On Nov 15th we have launched the Q&A module on The Studio website.

My article below was published in Deccan Herald last Friday. The free text is pasted below. Happy reading Cheers Nandita The role of an Interior Designer and tips to get the best out of your Interior designer for your home design project.
