Exotic elegance of color: 

The two key elements  of  Indian design are the "texture and rich color". If you consider the design and color of any Indian palace you will notice that the Indians have a tender heart for rich colors. Peach and dark copper have always been the first choice of  any Indian in terms of traditional design.

Nevertheless it is always good to look for  a color scheme that runs through each style and suits every temperature. 



Traditional doors and windows are very much larger than the normal size. These doors are often called as grand entry doors. Over- size doors and windows with a lot of art and craft work is a specialty of this type of design. Being an Indian you must have visited so many old temples .Try  to recollect all your memories of the "Golden Temple" think of the design on the doors and in no time you would be able to design your own traditional doors/windows of your home. 



Traditional furniture provides  classic style. This form of furniture is basically a handcrafted one. Fabrics such as velvet and brocade are very popular choices in traditional decor. This type of  furniture is often found to be very  large and heavy as compared to the common furnishings. Decorative trims can also be incorporated to give a more formal and classic look.

Pillars not only sustain the heavy burden of a building  but also lift up the privilege and the reputation of it. Traditional pillars are molded by a variety of designs and art-work. They are usually very large in size, widest at the bottom and the plain surface with the shape of a square on the top connects the building.

Modern day traditional houses are a replica of the ancient architectural design. If we consider any building which has been constructed keeping in mind of traditional pedigree, we would see that it's a new house dressed up with old traditional clothes. So with the above mentioned ideas any house can be woven into the fabric of Ethnic design.
