Rawla Narlai, Jodhpur

 

Take a cue from the interiors of Rawla Narlai to pair vintage furniture with pastel colours

Once a hunting lodge, Rawla Narlai is a heritage hotel set within a restored, 17th century fortress-like structure. Each of its 32 rooms offers several decor ideas for home interiors.

To replicate the understated look in the bedroom, pick up pieces of wooden furniture handmade locally — from reading chairs and teakwood nightstands to lampshades, ottomans and cushions upholstered in ethnic fabric.

Get inspired by the muted and monochromatic latticed screens in the deluxe rooms. These would make a great partition between living and dining rooms, for example. Match cushion covers and upholstery for seaters to that of the partitioning screen for a cohesive look.

Dress up walls by creating niches for lantern-inspired lamps and framed photographs. Frame and hang old black and white pictures to add a distinctly individualistic old-world charm.

If neither the white and cream deluxe rooms nor the vibrant standard rooms appeal to you, take cues from the little things. Include pretty block-printed soft furnishings such as cushions, throws, bedspreads and curtains in shades and fabrics that pair well with your existing interior décor for that Rajasthani charm.
