Make opulent embellishments the hero of your home with these décor tips inspired by the interiors of Jehan Numa Palace in Bhopal
Set on the slope of Shamla Hill in Bhopal, Jehan Numa Palace showcases a balance of British Colonial, Italian Renaissance and Classic Greek architecture. The interiors of this 19th century heritage property display two styles that dominate the hotel: monochromatic with a hint of a modern and neutral with bursts of colour and ethnic patterns. Both styles are equally opulent and feature traditional elements.
Take a cue from the monochromatic rooms to balance large white walls with black details. Elevate the colour scheme with gold highlights like picture frame mouldings, door handles and table legs. If white and black are too stark for you, infuse colour and richness with tufted velvet sofas in cool greys and blues.
Spaces with muted wall colours and stone flooring were brought to life with dark colonial furniture, tribal artwork and ethnic furnishings. Emulate this neutral décor with pockets of rich fabrics like silks and velvets in traditional prints as seen in Jehan Numa Palace with throw pillows, blinds and bed runners. In the lobby, wood mouldings add an element of drama to the ceiling while splashes of cranberry, blue and deep green enliven the room.
