Using color to create an Indian style living room is a brilliant idea! Most Indian homes have retained the charm or old India that has been romanticized by the Taj Mahal and other King’s palaces. That charm can be brought into your home using a combination of furniture, accessories and color.
In using color to create an Indian style living room, the walls are the place to start. Indian colors are usually earth colors such as the terra cottas, red, orange, brown and gold. Using one of these colors on your living room wall is a great idea. For those who would find them too rich to go on all four walls, have a neutral color on three walls and then paint one wall a rich color. This will become your focal wall.
That done, pay attention to your window treatments. Select Indian textile curtains made of silk sari. These will give your house rich color as well as the luxurious feel of silk.
Because Indian furniture tends to be made of dark wood with intricate designs, get throw pillows in rich, spicy colors with gold accents such as embroidery in gold thread. This will spice up your couch and the rich colors will give that Indian feel that you are trying to create.
Your living room wall accessories are another way that you can use color to create an Indian style living room. A mirror with a thick gold or dark wooden frame can go on one wall or you can have Indian art up on the wall instead. Using framed colorful Indian fabric as a wall accessory is also a brilliant idea. As you can tell, it does not take much to create that Indian style living room with color. Try it and give your home an exotic feel.
