Traditional is in

There is a very big misconception about the traditional theme. People think that it goes only with festivals and that is why they prefer to wear traditional mostly during the festive season and try to give their house a traditional look as well. But this is not how it works. Traditional style houses are in fashion these days and they look very classy. You can let people know about your roots through the traditional style. India is rich in culture so we should make the most of it while decorating our house also. Let everyone get to know your traditional side and here are some of the ways in which you can give your home a traditional makeover.

Start with upholstery to get the traditional look. See to it that the colour and design of the upholstery goes with the traditional theme. For that you have to go for Indian themes like Paisleys (ambi) or Warli print. This will add to the fusion and also contrast with your sofa sets. Traditional colours are usually bright so keep in mind while selecting the colour and print. The other important thing to get a traditional look is a good collection of rugs and cushions. India is known for its unique collection of cushion covers which are bright yet traditional. It goes very well with upholstery at the same time.
