Siolim House, Goa

Take cues from the heritage interiors of Siolim House, Goa to induce the susegad feel in your home

Bright printed tiles, old-school wooden furniture and bronze ornaments are a common sight in Siolim House, Goa. This 350 year old manor house with strong Portuguese influences, is packed with inspiration for home owners who wish to add a vintage touch to their homes.

To replicate the grandness of the living room, pair dark hardwood furniture with dark upholstery. Simple bronze ornaments can help complete the look.

Create the illusion of a higher ceiling by painting a bright border around it. Not only can you use bright tiles for a statement wall but using them on floors can inject pops of colour in an otherwise muted room. Use muted drapes and linen in this case.

Utilise dead spaces under stairs by placing a small bench with cushions to create a small seating area. Add a splash of colour by using bright tiles or throw pillows.

Dress up bare walls with a life-sized painting to create a feature wall. If you want the furniture such as a canopy bed to be the focal point, leave the walls bare. Comfortable padded benches placed at the foot of your bed can provide more seating.
