Indian Décor is one of the most captivating and exotic styles. The variations in history, culture and art across the country provide room for individual creativity while allowing you to also remain true to its essence.
At Zohi Interiors we fell in love with the beautiful handcrafted inlay of Rajasthan and are now so inspired to utilise it in every style of décor from Art Deco to Urban Chic! The key elements that define a truly Indian style décor are more than simply inlay handiwork. Inclusion of the sacred, rich textiles, handmade furniture and antique accents all play their part.
This enchanting style is not just about visual appeal - it also entails creating an atmosphere that promotes spiritual connection, health and wellbeing. This brings abundance, prosperity and happiness to your home. Religious antiques decorated with sacred symbols alongside Hindu inspired statues and motifs are a major part of the Indian theme.
India has a rich textile tradition. Besides fine quality silks, printed cottons, muslin, linen, wool and gold thread are typical in Indian furnishings. Shibori tie dying, embroidery and intricate block printing are used to make beautiful patterned fabrics. Authentic furniture is strong in quality and rustic in appearance usually with detailed carved embellishments and made from woods such as rosewood, teak, sandalwood and ebony. You will also see brass and other metals used including little mirrors and sequins.
Since the style is normally rich in color, pattern and texture, just a few pieces placed strategically can fill your space with exotic glamour. You can add a burst of style and flair to your room with tapestried pillows and hand-loomed rugs or a touch of brass in the form of thali plates, lassi cups, candle holders and wind chimes. A lavish dancing Ganesh or Shiva might just be the thing to remind you to live fully and be present! It’s easy and fun to capture the essence of this generous and uplifting style with our easy Indian design ideas for your home.
