East meets West

Decided to start the week with a pop of color!

The past few years we've seen a large Indian influence in Western design, in both interiors and fashion. The culture has penetrated itself into mainstream design, with rich colors and beautiful patterns. 


Indian style can also be achieved with a more muted palette.

Added paint to break up the metallic look. 


Remember,  like most trends, this too can be overdone. The key is to stick to a few statement pieces.
