Blend traditional and modern designs with cues from the interiors at Suryagarh, Jaisalmer
The interiors at Suryagarh, Jaisalmer are an amalgamation of traditional Rajasthani décor and modern designs, where carved marble co-exist harmoniously with sleek, sharp lined hardwood furniture.
The use of wood and marble jalis keeps the rooms light and airy while also acting like a screen, separating private areas from the common ones.
Use mirrors, especially in small rooms for an illusion of more space. Switch the headboard in your bedroom or an art work in your living room with a mirror and notice the difference.
Fresh flowers make the best centre pieces – they add colour in monotone rooms and bring in an element of freshness as well. If you do not have space for large floral arrangements, group small shot glasses with individual flowers to create a delicate display.
Make the most of the sunlight streaming into your house by building a ledge skirting your window. Top it up with a mattress and some pillows for a reading area. If you have full-length windows, you can utilise a corner to create low seating for an informal living room.
