No wonder they say that home is where the heart is! This may sound cliched, but there is no dispute to the fact that home is also where the art is.
I have always been very passionate when it comes to decors in general as well while styling our own home. For me the definition of beauty in styling lies in elegantly mixing the old and the new. While decorating our home I kept in mind, decors need not be followed in particular style. I felt mixing the new and the old looked livable. Also a fact by contrasting both it draws individual attention to each piece.
Speaking about decors in Indian sub continent the choice of styling among people differ. Some prefer traditional or desi style, some find interest in contemporary designs while others break away from both and look for eclectics... mixer of different style. Owing to the peculiar historical circumstanceses in India the decors in interior imbibed with Mughal, British, Portuguese and the French influences. Yet every design fixes the style firmly as Indian.
Collecting themed or non themed collectibles for over thirty years our home has touch of everything. From Indian, western to oriental style. I like things to be different and out of the ordinary. To have a eclectic look one needs a little bit of imagination experimentation and the confidence in applying to give the distinct and your personal style.
Wall color hues play an important role in decors. We always opt for the natural, cool and muted colors. Preferring white for the living room matched the theme of the old and the new the eclectic style.
