Known for creating magic with weaves, Shravan Kummar enters the domain of decor
With the wedding season upon us, brides-to-be are always on the look out for that one person who can curate their wedding according to the themes that they have in mind. Rising to the occasion is ace designer Shravan Kummar of Shravan’s Studio who made a foray into this domain, taking a giant leap from drapes to decor. He wants to take up the ideas brides have and give it a singular and personal touch, executing and customising the decor to the satisfaction of his clients.
The man, known for his stunning trousseaus that can be passed on from one generation to another, says “there’s a beauty in going back to our roots when choosing a theme for a wedding instead of going cross-cultural”. And that’s precisely the idea he wants to incorporate in his decor as well.
The designer is choosy about his clients as he aims to make the occasion memorable for those he decides to work with. Giving an example of a recent Mehendi function he organised, that of his niece Shloka, he says that the thematic representation comprising a blend of four states – Kolkata, Bombay, Delhi and Punjab – was well-appreciated. The props used were colourful: for instance, trucks were transformed into elements of the decor.
The designer plans to go classic with the design of the wedding cards as well. “I would like to do pop-up designs with motifs inspired by the paintings of Bengal artist Jamini Roy,” says Shravan. Lastly, he highlights, no big event is a huge hit if the return gifts are forgettable. “I want to make the hampers interesting: think nail art for a Mehendi do or a smart jar full of green teas, facewash and so on,” offers the designer.
