Indian homes are very different from the homes you see in Bollywood movies. Our homes speak comfort not only in the feels but also in the look and style. In the earlier days, Indian homes were not designed and decorated as per themes, but only with imported decorative items or the ones available locally. All our mothers and grandmothers did to make our homes look and feel beautiful was use desi (Indian) block printed fabrics for curtains, mattresses and adorn the cabinets and shelves with beautiful decor items and utility containers. Another thing that ruled and still rules Indian homes are plants! Today, I found a few inspirational Indian homes that are styled in the best ways an Indian home could be.
Bhavna Bhatnagar's An Indian Summer
This simple yet elegant design and decor by Bhavna is home decor goals. Not very difficult to style, you can create your own space in the likeness of this beautiful living room with subtle prints, deep wood accents and a bit of metallic. The Indian prints are so versatile and looks commendable throughout. The two differently styled sofas also add more to the originality of the Indian decor and style.
Sruthi Singh's The East Coastal Desi
Soft lights and vibrant colours go very well when styled with neutral background colours. An accent cushion on a cream or pastel sofa will add that pop of energy you would want your home to emit. Light plays a very important role in adding style and creating ambience, lampshades like this one would be the perfect choice for an Indian home.
Pinky's Pinkz Passion
The metallic accents add a graceful Indian touch to the decor. You can see how stylish yet simple the decor choices are here. Decking up your coffee table like this would add more character to any home that wants to look "desi". The tiny planters are so refreshing and will create a nice and cool atmosphere.
Sharon's The Key Bunch
The Key Bunch's this picture shows how versatile Indian homes look. This is not a traditional Indian decor theme, nor is it contemporary. The colours of the bed sheet, the prints and the furniture style blend in so well. When you look at the window, it is very simple yet contemporary with a cool curtain tieback that creates a clean look. Indian decor have a lot of cushions in colours and prints.
Anuradha Varma's My Dream Canvas
Subtle details add to the characteristics of your home. From the bright cusions to the exotic and beautiful glasses on the table, everything in this picture looks so calm and perfect. Just see the beautiful fusion of colours and wood finish, the perfect sight of an Indian home!
