India is rich and diverse in its culture and traditions, and making your living space look beautiful with Indian elements is not as difficult as it might sound. Here are the 10 ideas to add the classic Indian touch to a modern home decor.
You can buy your upholstery keeping in mind textures and colour schemes that you wish to have for your space. Go for Indian prints and patterns, or embroideries on fabrics. Paisleys (aambi) or Warli print are the perfect example of typical Indian prints. This is great way to give a fusion look, if you are looking at placing straight line sofa sets.
2. Rugs and cushions
Indian rugs and cushion covers are great pieces of art that are appreciated all over the world. If one decides to go simple and contemporary with the furniture, traditional rugs and cushions can help add a stunning Indian touch to it. Again, upholstery plays an important role here.

Although blinds are in, curtains add more warmth to a home. One can have lovely silk, velvet, or georgette. Combining Indian prints with plain curtains enriches the entire experience. If you do choose blinds, go for Indian patterns on the fabric. Combinations of curtains and blinds can be quite trendy as well.
Instead of adding some element, if you decide to keep all the furniture Indian, it would be a nice theme. For example, have a Rajasthani cabinet placed in your dining room or by the bedside, or have a carved stool near your contemporary sofa set. You can have a traditional Gujarati jhula in your western living room if the space is large enough.

5. False ceiling:
This is a great segment in design to dwell upon, but will need professional help. With your entire modern interior set up, you can go bold and ask your interior designer to pop in an ethnic wall and ceiling design. This can be done with carvings or paintings.
