Been wanting to incorporate rich Indian heritage into your home décor? Here are some ways you can give your home a Swadeshi touch
It is easy to get swept up in the trends, even when it comes to your home interiors. But it's neither sustainable nor always the best thing to do. When it comes to interiors, there's always a way to attain the sweet spot between classic and trendy. And to add a cherry on the cake, what if we told you you could do so while supporting local artistry? Bring the classic desi aesthetic to your homes with these décor ideas that support the Swadeshi movement.
Colour and pattern are distinctive features of Indian décor. Combine these to make a bold statement with patchwork textiles. You can use it for upholstery, rugs, throw pillows, etc. Patchwork fabric can be customised, and you can make it more interesting by adding textural elements with embroidery, mirror work, etc.
With rugs and carpets, you can create a subtle yet impactful focal point in your home décor. Available in many materials and patterns, Indian carpets and rugs are truly an investment. A few designs Indian artisans specialise in include Botteh, Bidjar, Mahal and Kashan.
An easy and affordable way to support local artisans and go Swadeshi is to accessorise your home with Indian handicraft materials. Wood figurines, ceramics, bronze sculptures, and folk paintings such as warli and Madhubani are great starting points.
Consider torans an entryway staple. People generally put them up only during festivities, but who wouldn't like to be greeted with some fresh flowers every day? And if flower torans seem like a hassle, go for a more permanent option such as embroidered or beaded ones. It is a great way to keep artistic traditions alive.
Uruli is a classic example of our rich legacy. These erstwhile utilitarian objects, used as cookware for ages, also make for brilliant home décor. Traditionally made of clay, bronze or bronze, you can use these intricate pots and pans for the foyer, in the puja room, or as a centrepiece. Fill them up with flower arrangements or floating candles for some extra pizazz.
Trying to figure out what to do with empty walls? Wall hangings might be precisely what you're missing. Use rich Indian textiles to create beautiful tapestries. You can also repurpose old plates, wind chimes, wooden wall art, etc., to fill the walls.
The country has much to offer on many fronts for travel enthusiasts. If you like to collect souvenirs from each place you've travelled to, use them to decorate your home. And to truly make your home Swadeshi, buy from local artists and artisans during your travels.
Indian art makes use of many motifs in different mediums. Take it a step further and employ these motifs to create stunning wall paintings. Some popular ones are stylised florals, jhaalars, bel, peacocks, elephants, and fish. When it comes to objects, you often see mandalas, gopurams and conch shapes. If you prefer more narrative-style murals, opt for folk art like Madhubani, Bhil, Tanjore, pattachitra, etc.
You don't always need to go all out to design a Swadeshi home; sometimes, it's all about the details. With the variety of Indian textiles at your disposal, you can seamlessly incorporate traditional bed sheets into any bedroom design style.
A classic way to add some desi-ness to your home décor is to add a few antique furniture pieces. After all, nothing screams Swadeshi more than intricately carved, dark wood, heirloom furniture.
A swing or a jhoola adds just the desi touch you need in a house. Make it a part of your living room seating or place it on the veranda or the porch. Take the traditional aspect up a notch with an intricately carved wooden jhoola or cushions and pillows covered in Indian textiles.
Don't forget the dining room when it comes to giving your home a Swadeshi makeover. A simple way to do this is to add table runners or mats in traditional textiles to your dining set-up. Top it off with a centrepiece or a couple of candelabras, and you're good to go.
If you prefer the contemporary aesthetic with minimalism, functionality and neutrals, you can still achieve it with Swadeshi elements. Khadi is the answer; this durable material is available in many colours and patterns and is low maintenance. You can employ it for any household textile use- sheets, upholstery, covers, curtains, etc.
Jute is an accessible and sustainable material woven into many products such as rugs, furnishings, fabric, etc. It is the right fit for anyone looking to introduce natural and Swadeshi materials to their home décor.
Another excellent homegrown, affordable and versatile material is bamboo. From furniture to wooden wall art, bamboo is an excellent alternative to hardwood products. Plus, it is available in just as many natural finishes as hardwood, so it's a win-win.
Another quite traditional material you can add to your Swadeshi home is terracotta. From roofs to walls to earthenware and artefacts, there are many ways you can incorporate it into your interiors.
