The way we do our home shows our personality. Indian products have their own unique look which can create wonders. Doesn’t simple cotton fabric with classy designs a cool combo to look forward to? Especially on your curtains and bed linens?
Let us introduce handlooms to you, it is a loom that is used to weave clothes without electricity. Hand weaving is done in pit looms generally located in the weaver’s home. Indian handlooms are known worldwide for their richness, variety and quality. It represents our precious heritage. However, with the advent of power looms, the industry has been struggling. What can be done to preserve this sector? Infusing Indian handlooms in modern homes is definitely one solution.
If you are searching for a fabric of perfection you can refer to ikat fabric. It is an ancient textile weaving craft predominantly found in southeastern regions. It is admired very well for its beauty and creative scope.
When it comes to curtains and blinds, patterns, and most importantly ‘fabrics’ can make a huge difference to give that edgy Indian look. Cotton and linens are the most preferred in that case. It gives an exotic look to your windows. Try it yourself to believe it.
Colours and prints
Since our country has been associated with rich weaving and unique textile, our love for colours and prints is legendary. Vibrant colours, diverse prints and related ambience give Indian fabrics an inherent charm that can add a dash of colour to your home.
What gives the fabric a unique identity is the prints and weaves that are so distinct to the region. Inspired by nature, and the architecture of temples, these prints are rich in structures. From hundreds of artisans throwing different craft ideas, there are various prints to choose from. Bandhani, Patola, Batik etc are some of the most popular Indian prints that have found much love across the world.
Have you ever noticed that we are all very much attracted to deep colours but are hesitant to bring that to interiors? India has always been remembered as a country of symbolic colours. Giving vibrant colours to interiors is an easy way to give an Indian touch.
Accessories and wall art
Like art, the accessories to your home say a lot about you. They actually personalise your home.
Our country is well known for its luxurious tradition. It is unique from the rest. Stainless glass lanterns and a perfectly placed wall painting sets the right mood for the interiors. Placing a rug with such a design in a modern house is a bold decision. Setting the accessories and furnishings in order just completes the aesthetics that you seek.
The key to the success of a modern home with an Indian twist is the infusion of both styles in compatible measure. Once you are able to maintain the balance, you’ll manage to create a seamless experience at your home.
