Avneet Basi’s Love Letter to Tumblr (and the 4 You Gotta Follow)
Way before Avneet Basi started her bright, just-a-little-flashy jewelry line Krysos + Chandi, she started spending a lot of time on Tumblr—a platform that quickly became a real creative wellspring for her. Over the years, she’s done a lot of fangirling, posted a whole lot of awesomeness, and discovered some serious sources for inspiration—more on those below.
“Veronica actually designed my logo! I knew that she understood my aesthetic, and she has the most impeccable taste. She was one of the very first people I followed on Tumblr—she is a graphic designer who lives in Australia.”
“Catherine is an architect based in New York, and I basically use her blog as a shopping list. She has a classic, clean taste that makes me go ‘yep, I want that; I need that’ at everything she posts. There’s a growing list of things I want for my apartment that I’ve seen on her blog—like this Sacrificial Chair [Ed: By the Of a Kind designer Thing Industries, in fact!] that I’m really dying for. She’s also been a huge supporter of my line and has bought some of my jewelry—and, no, we’ve never met even though we live in the same city.”
“This is a design and architecture blog that features a lot of interesting furniture and object designs. I used to go antiquing with my parents, and a lot of what he posts reminds me of that—just really beautiful old pieces that I don’t really see anywhere else.”
