Designer’s Corner: Rekha Krishnamurthi of Divine NY & Co

About Rekha Krishnamurthi & Divine NY & Co

Rekha Krishnamurthi
Rekha Krishnamurthi is the founder of Divine NY & Co, a design studio that specializes in textile design, online interior decorating, home decor and fashion accessories.  Her love for textile design inspired the launch of a collection of hand-dyed and hand-printed fabrics.  Her process includes dyeing with fiber reactive dyes, natural dyes, block printing, batik and hand painting.  Primarily working with natural fibers such as cotton, linen or silk, each collection is produced in small batches or as one-of-a-kind items.  An advocate for sustainable design she strives to make something “old” look new again, by repurposing vintage saris and fabric remnants.  The end result is a series of unique, artisanal creations such as sari throws, table linens, silk scarves and wall decor.   In addition, she hosts textile design workshops, silk painting parties and corporate team-building events. Through her online decorating service, she focuses on color consulting, interior color schemes, e-decorating and small space design. She shares her passion for home decor, DIY design and color trends through her design blog, Live Colorfully. Style Beautifully.
