Indian Design Style

Indian 

An Indian interior design style captures the ideals of India. Dark wood and bright rich colours, that are a nod to the spice markets of India. Detail can be in the furniture, as seen in the middle picture below. This style is full of detail and pattern but not cluttered.

Colour in your home: Purple

Darker, plum tones bring a sophisticated feel. Lighter, lilac tones are relaxing and soft.

By far, bedding gives you the widest range of options to adding purple tones to a room. From lights to darks and patterns to blocks, there is so much choice with this easy way of adding colour.

Lighting. There are many different purple lights out there, but most of them are too purple, harsh and just too much. Above we’ve found a good selection of different ways to use purple lights right.

Western Design Style

Western

Think animal skins and furs, cow hide and horns, Cowboys and Indians. The examples below are Very western, but they show you what you could put into the room to get the feel of it being western. For example, leather chairs with a tribal or animal skin throw on it, or a simple stag horn wall piece (example).

Colour in your home: Green

Green is a tranquil, refreshing and works in any room of the house.

Flowers are an obvious and easy way to get green into your room. Potted plants are simple and mostly easy to maintain. But if you want something a little more unique make your own miniature gardens. All you need is a jar, soil and some small plants or cacti.

Colour in your home: Red

There are many ways to get the colour red into your home other than painting a wall in that colour.

Or painting different pieces of furniture and even doors in a high gloss red is an easy way to add a bright splash of colour to your room.

A little bit of up cycling is a fun way to add the colour. Painting old chairs and re-upholstering cushions. Or fully re-upholstering chairs like the middle picture above. Another easy way is to paint the inside of mason jars with the colour and use them as vases, storage or candle holders.

 Or just buy some simple accessories that you can add to your room.
