The closest I’ve ever been to India is eating a korma (and that probably wasn’t even that authentic!) but I’d love to go to one of the markets and be surrounded by traditional Indian craftsmanship. The colourful fabrics, intricate patterns and great attention to detail make their products so appealing. There really is nothing like handmade.
Indian interior style is as elaborate as their crafts- the use of intricate pattern and strong colour provides endless inspiration…

Although bright, these cushions, above, are in no way garish. Mix and match colours and textures sympathetically for an exotic result. I like the uniformity of the picture frames, it helps to keep the room sophisticated rather than childlike.

Having a home filled with meaningful furniture and home accessories makes it so much more personal to you and your family. Pieces with a story behind them are special and make great talking points. How great would it be to be able to say ‘this item was handcrafted in India’, or ‘this was bought on our recent holiday to Africa’ ?
