Home should always feel like a warm hug

Hello there! I’m Rukmini, and Trumatter is my little corner of the internet, where I share all things cozy and comforting for you and your home. It’s been a whirlwind, with thirteen awards and magazine features galore, but I still feel like we’re just getting started, bubbling away with new ideas like a pot of simmering soup.

I live in a charming little rental apartment, and I absolutely adore it. It’s like my own personal canvas, where I get to experiment with different decor ideas and share them with you. Think of it as a treasure trove of tips and tricks, from playful wallpaper techniques to using everyday objects like postcards to create dreamy spaces.

Whether you’re a seasoned home decorator or just starting out, Trumatter has something for everyone. We feature amazing brands from India and around the world, keeping you updated on the latest trends in interior design, style, and more…like having your own personal style guide, whispering sweet nothings about timeless designs in the decor world.

Now, everything you see here is lovingly crafted by me, a one-woman show with a passion for creating beautiful spaces. It’s a lot of work, but I wouldn’t trade it for a slice of warm apple pie. When life permits, I also share easy recipes, gardening tips, and even my love for thrifting furniture on the blog.

So, come on in, explore, and make yourself at home. Trumatter is where I pour my heart out, and I hope you love reading it as much as I love creating it.

With warmest wishes, Rukmini

  1. Wow we do have alot in common! I am glad to find your blog, I will be following you as well. One other major thing we have in common is how you said your mothers decor inspires you. My mother and my decorating are very much alike too.

    1. Okay! Now, its tickmark time. I cant believe we have so much in common!!!! From the bottom of my heart: GLAD to have found your blog.
      My decor style is purely an extension of hers and she is one of my best buddies, like yours. I think it has something to do with closeness. The closer you are to a person, the more you tend to be like that particular person- whether in thoughts, action, moral or style. For us it is definitely our mothers.

    1. I am honored!
      Yes, I did take that big leap of faith and I am thankful to everyone who supported me to be where I am today. Its not big what I am doing, I am an editor for a knowledge sharing firm, but to me, it means a lot. Within, I am content. What else do we really want? 😀
      Do you blog? I’d love to have a glimpse of it if you do.
