A taste of Indian design for your walls
All India wallpaperAunty Beeb has been keeping us glued to the telly, assaulting our senses with the mesmeric sights and sounds of incomparable India, sampling the rich texture of a billion lives in vivid colour and immersive sound. In time honoured wallpaperdirect blog style, here’s a collection of designs that will bring that little bit of India to your walls.
Celebrate the sariThanks to Y’Amal on Flickr for these lovely party saris… Intricate, opulent and delicate pattern with bold celebratory colour… Wallpapers from Albany and Sketch 23 get us off to a traditional-feeling start.
Playing with PaisleyMini Moderns Darjeeling, along with their playful paisley woven from the deep reserve of British suburbia. A gorgeous paisley in the pink from Barneby Gates. Rajapur paisley in cyan and gold from Cole & Son.
Animal magicExotic animals make dashing deities. Thanks to Sathis Babu on Flickr for this glorious Ganesh. Irrepressible elephants and handsome tigers carry us on to these offerings from Albany, Manoel Canovas and Paper Moon…
Comfort foodWhat visit to India would be complete without Cumin, Coriander, Caraway and Saffron? Exquisite flock wallpapers conjure memories of some of the pioneering curry houses that introduced the wonders of Indian cuisine to Britain. Of course the modern British Indian restaurant (like the lovely Chaula’s in Lewes) has come a long way since then. I think a fresh, sumptuous vegetarian thali should get the weekend off to the perfect start!
