There are plenty of reasons to desire an Indian style interior. Perhaps you’re enamoured with the current trend for Indian and South Asian design, or maybe you’re just looking to make your home more representative of your culture, background and heritage.
Whatever your reasons are for wanting to add some Indian flair to your home, you may be feeling as if you’re not in a position to give your entire home a makeover.
Luckily, you don’t have to! There are several easy ways to add some cultural decor to your home without re-doing the entire place – so check out our five easy hacks for an Indian style interior.
1. Be vibrant with your colour choices.
India is known for its bright colours and their connotations, so try to include them as part of your interior. These are often connected to Indian culture, through festivals or religion.
Some you may want to include are red (the colour of passion and fertility), yellow (the colour of healing), green (the colour of nature), blue (the colour of power and life), white (the colour of serenity) and black (a colour that wards off evil spirits).
Use them anywhere in your home for a colourful Indian vibe!
2. Use some traditional Indian patterns and prints.
There are also many patterns and prints that are recognisable as Indian style, including Paisley, Warli and Rangoli designs.
Using these on your textiles such as cushions, rugs and curtains can be one of the easiest ways to add a touch of Indian style to your home with no effort at all.
3. Integrate your culture, values and religion.
Indian values are important throughout the country’s culture, so it’s worth considering how you could represent them within your home as part of your interior. Ideas to do so include:
- Creating a home that’s warm and welcoming for your family and friends to visit.
- Staying true to yourself and letting your home reflect you and your personality.
- Making sure everyone who lives in the home is included in the decisions, bringing the family (or friends) together.
4. Include some Indian artwork or decor items.
Traditional Indian artwork or decor can be easily found throughout India (even right here at Floma) and is the easiest way to include some Indian style in your home – simply buy a product you love and display it as part of your interior!
