Guest post: Indian-inspired Rooms

Dear readers, here's a guest post from the guys at Design Shuffle. They have put together a great write-up on their favorite Indian-inspired rooms, just for you!

It was difficult to narrow down our favorite Indian inspired rooms to just a few. We love Indian textiles and bold colors, whether used as accents or layered one on top of the other in a riot of color and pattern. Indian and Anglo-Indian designs have a rich history and can be incorporated into many different style interiors. Mirrored and inlaid furniture, paisley patterns, rich, deep colors, intricate carving, and gold accents are all trademarks of Indian design. We hope you feel inspired with a few interior design ideas to add a few touches of Indian design to your home.
