Interior Decor: Indian, African & Oriental theme Series 3

Themes are an interesting way to spice up your home decor. While a single theme for the entire house is a simple choice, consider different themes for different rooms as a refreshingly unique option. Your home decor is a reflection of your personality and each theme could reflect a different shade of your persona. From your kitchen to your bathroom, you can find themes to match any space.


Indian Theme: To start with, introduce cane and jute furniture in your living room. Use several brightly coloured cushions and pillows to make them comfortable. Hand-woven Indian floor mats with ethnic designs and in vibrant colours, will add flavour to this theme. Suspend oil lanterns from the roof to add an old-world charm to the room. You can have electric bulbs in lanterns for ease of use. Adorn the walls with paintings and prints that reflect Indian culture and artistic talent. Hand-woven silk fabrics from Rajasthan make for excellent wall art.

African Theme: This is a great theme for the bedroom. Animal prints and tribal designs are the primary patterns. Tiny hand-made African instruments and African-style trinkets and statuettes add to the theme. Floor rugs with animal prints will add authenticity to the decor. Use tribal art and colourful masks to embellish the roof and walls.

Oriental Theme: A theme that demands a lot of red and golden, it will make the guest room look really unique. You can have low Chinese-style seating in the room. From hand fans and kimonos to Chinese dragons and chopsticks, you can do a lot with this theme.

There are several other themes you can opt for to make your home really interesting. Whatever interests you, can turn into a theme for your home. Music, motorcars, bikes, planes, ships, painting, photography, travel, technology, history - all of them can be effective themes for the various rooms of your home.
