This post is authored by Bhavna – a corporate consultant from Gurgaon, India who is equally passionate about Indian decor.  She blogs at An Indian Summer, helping her readers draw inspiration from “design, decor, creative talent, art and craft, that is global in its appeal, and is inspired by the color and vibrancy of India.”

As an ardent admirer of traditional art and crafts from India, nothing pleases me more than to see them being appreciated and celebrated all over the world.  From design enthusiasts to big décor stores to the global home maker, there is a renewed interest in handmade products and textiles from India.  Global appeal of Indian craft traditions has also encouraged more and more indie designers within India to work with grass root artisans and save many a dying craft tradition and skills.  And going by 2012 home décor trends and forecasts, it looks like India and inspired by India are going to be hot favourites again this year. Hurray for that! :)

Here’s taking a look at a few of my favourite stores and their pick of India inspired home collection:


Banarasi/Jamdani fabric covered journal indigo block print style table linen

Knobs from Rajasthan and dhurrie cushions


Painted wooden horse and spice boxes from Saharanpur

The cutest owl hooks, wooden boxes and the ever popular fabric elephant

Pottery Barn

Kantha throws and kilim dhurrie

Block printed table linen
