I can’t…

…think of an apt post title each time!
And this is one of those times :0
No reflection on the rooms that I have for you today
Though they did leave me a little speechless
Indian inspiration done right! From the kantha quilt to the faux camel bone side drawer to the roses to the pillow covers and the headboard…I wouldn’t change a thing in this room.   

 Remember my room pairs post? Well aren’t the above two rooms siblings? Love the scottish/madras checks
Another pair! And such gorgeous tiles and brass taps

Do you see what I see? Bandhani (Tie & Dye) pillows!

 Just when you ran out of ideas for innovative headboards – how cool is this one? For us folks in India, who can easily find jaali (lattice) work, we could try this with different stones…visualize a dholpur or jaisalmer stone jaali!

I like the play of different materials and textures (metal, ceramic, wood & the green of the cactus) against the mustard wall

 Suzani and colonial furniture – perfect combination
This room is overwhelming for me – too much happening visually. But love the independent pieces that have gone in – the tiles, the fabrics, the lamp, the side tables.. 

What bling!
Another case of sibling room love, you think?
I think it’s time I re-purposed some of my wardrobe 🙂
   Ah! The causal chic of those tiles..
 And the details that make all the difference. 
What title would you give this post?

  1. This post is so beautiful it aches! LOVE the assortment of jali panels for a headboard. Hmmmmm! We're visiting Chennai and Delhi in April and jali panels may be on my short list. Thanks for sharing these.

  2. Sumptuos Details.

    This collection of images is purely sumptuos. I can't think of any better way to describe it. Love so many of them.

  3. What yummy inspiration Bhavna!!! You have given me ideas for all those saris I never use!! Oh! And I would title this post…
    * Indian Delights or

  4. We're coming to India next winter, and I love this blog and your images–maybe over the coming months I can get my fill of Indian color and won't have to bring home six suitcases full of textiles–like I fear I shall want to do. I live in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon) and you can't imagine how wonderful it is to visually feast on all that color in the midst of a haze of gray.
    Thanks, Barbara

  5. Would borrow from Danial Mueenuddin his "In Other Rooms, Other Wonders". I think its quite apt for all these "rooms with a view" and some
