Specially commissioned photographs explore the architecture, furniture, wall decorations, textiles and rugs within Indian homes across the social spectrum from forts and palaces to individual tribal groups and revival styles to contemporary Indian homes , the latter showing how this rich artistic heritage has been adapted and updated. Decorative artworks are integrated throughout, providing inspirational design sources drawn from the intricacy of the originals.Whether you are fascinated by the culture and design of India, or whether you are seeking ideas for translating the Indian influence into a contemporary interior, then this provides a rich visual reference of styles, from traditional to contemporary , presented with integrity and panache.
