Add a royal and extravagant touch to your home with décor ideas from Bujera Fort, Udaipur
Bujera Fort in Udaipur with its roof of 76,000 handmade terracotta pots cuts a figure of royalty and elegance. Its interiors however, take a more restrained approach with monochromatic themes, use of classic materials and period furniture.
Creating pockets of prints in a room can add an interesting visual element. Apart from printed drapes and linens, you could also consider patterned upholstery and rugs as well.
While marble may have fallen out of favour as a material to use in the bathroom, now is a good time to bring it back in. You don’t have to cover your walls and floor with it entirely, small doses of it will also do – a marble shelf or counter will do the trick.
Metallic wall sconces or even pendant lamps can elevate the décor of your room, without being too bold. For your bedroom, consider a four-poster bed. It could have a contemporary or traditional design, keeping in mind the larger design aesthetic in your house. To truly feel like a royal, you can hang light, cotton drapes from the frame.
Don’t be afraid to mix up several prints in a single room. This creates an interesting play of colour, patterns and textures. When taking this approach, remember to use different types of materials to get different finishes.
Marble bathrooms look extremely regal, but an all marble bathroom may not be an option for all. To emulate this look, install your sink on a marble countertop or add small marble corner shelves to store all your toiletries.
To focus attention on your gallery wall, keep the walls a muted colour. Bed benches can come in handy if you want to create extra seating in the bedroom, but only if you have enough extra space.
For a little bling in your bedroom, we suggest using a gilded frame for the mirror. Place a sleek console underneath so it can also double up as a dressing corner. If you’re one who likes to be comfortable when working, try a more enveloping, fully upholstered armchair.
To create a monochrome theme, you can use different tones of the same colour on drapes, linens and other soft furnishings. This way, you have a little variation in the room as well. For bedrooms with high ceilings, four-poster beds are ideal.
Wicker furniture is your best bet for the outdoors. A small side table, either in wood or metal, can be placed for holding your drinks.
