Exotic Elegance

Rich color and texture both key elements of Indian design give this living room by HGTV fan wallscouture a palatial feel. Coated with various shades of red Venetian plaster, the dramatic arch becomes the perfect backdrop for a framed Indian textile. The columns are drizzled with copper paints and adorned with a subtle Moorish stencil design, while the remaining walls have a soft gold faux finish. Embroidered throw pillows and a leather ottoman complement the lavish surroundings.

Sumptuous Layers

India is known for its fine silks and other textiles, which are incorporated everywhere from window treatments to throw pillows to wall hangings in Indian homes. Designer Miv Watts injected plenty of color and texture into this living room with a knotted rug, an upholstered sofa and throw pillows in assorted patterns.

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 Textile Tradition

A Textile Tradition

In addition to luxurious silks, printed cottons are a staple of Indian decor. Block printing, in which intricately carved wooden blocks are used to print patterns on fabrics, is one of India’s oldest textile arts, as is tie-dye. This mango-hued tablecloth with a petite paisley pattern is block printed by hand, so each one has its own unique character.

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.

Simple and Functional

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.
