When I think of India, I think of vibrant colors, saturation, and stunning details. Indian architecture typically includes many elements that can easily be transposed to interior design. Patterns and shapes can be incorporated into borders, fabrics, paneling, or any number of other accents. When you look at Indian palaces and temples, the lavish, extraordinary details jump out at you. Taking one small aspect of these details and using them in your own interior brings a touch of India’s beauty to your home.
Another aspect of Indian culture I love is the vibrancy of the colors in traditional clothing. I see so much life in the bright colors and extravagant details of, for example, a sumptuously dyed and patterned sari or an intricate henna design on a lovely hand or foot. Add in gold accents and you have so much inspiration to work with.
