Indian inspired homes

When I started this blog, I thought it to be a blog for interiors and decoration particularly. But with time and improved writing skills, I took up several new topics and now my blog is about health, lifestyle, books, effective reading, parental advice hub in addition to home interiors and decoration. Also, I am soon planning to start a travel section.

So I was going through pinterest, when I came through these different decor ideas pinned to my decor board. I have saved them earlier but never got an appropriate topic for them to be included. Thus, today , before much delay , I am illustrating some intrinsic designs from India. In all the designs, what I like, was the use of vibrant colors attached to some core design patterns of different states.

Antique Accents


Since Indian decor is often rich in color, pattern and texture, just a few strategically placed pieces can fill a room with exotic flair. An antique Indian bedspread, hand-stitched with beading and gold thread, completely transforms this urban loft bedroom into a vibrant, energetic space. Patchwork pillows handmade from old textiles and the pink beaded sari underneath the ottoman, another vintage item from India, add another burst of color.

A fanciful touch


Step inside a traditional South Indian home and you may find a jhoola, or swing. Typically placed in the living room, indoor swings can be wood or metal, simple or ornate, and hung from the ceiling or from a frame. In this living space by HGTV fan aumarchitects, a jhoola in a bold floral fabric is suspended from the ceiling by simple chains, matching the room’s contemporary design.

Mehndi-Inspired Mural



Indian design often calls to mind opulent rooms draped in colorful silks, but some Indian interiors are quite simple and utilitarian. A charpoy, or a simple cot consisting of a frame strung tightly with rope, is a traditional piece of furniture popular in rural parts of the country. Here, a charpoy is dressed up with pillows made from recycled cotton saris.

Brick walled room


Start small and look for a space that you can work with in your house just to get the ball rolling. Adding a niche to a wall will not only accent the surface, but makes the room’s decor more interesting. Though bricks can add that rustic look, they have been used extensively.

These are some designs which caught my eyes and interest. All of these designs are simple yet hold a complication and statement in itself. It was a treat going through these pictures on pinterest. Courtesy for all these pictures goes to pinterest and the photographers who captured such wonderful indian colors and decor.

Happy decorating….
