Description

“[The books] give a succinct overview of...architecture and interior design styles...Color photographs showing classic and contemporary examples...captioned with tips on how these touches can be incorporated into today’s home [are included]....This series...will be useful in professional and school design libraries.”—Library Journal.  “Good value. Designed to spark... the imagination...[with] well-illustrated views of both interiors and exteriors.”—Veranda. From the Taj Mahal to modest dwellings made of mud or wood, India is a world rich in color, texture, and style--and these dazzling full-color images of the country's architecture and interior design elements focus on just those aspects easily adaptable to Western homes. Every photo provides a wealth of inspiration for totally redoing your house or simply giving a room an Indian flair. Tour traditional and contemporary Indian homes to see how their extraordinarily vivid palettes--bright baby blues and pinks enhanced with favorite images, sophisticated combinations such as the saffron and plum of Buddhist monks, or the sober, rich hue of deep, pure indigo--can infuse your walls, furnishings, shutters, or doorways with India style. Feel the power and excitement of the carved wooden furniture, hammered brass bowls, Mughal miniatures, magnificent silk textiles, and time-ripened antique rugs. Then bring the passion and diversity of India to bear on your own exotic retreat.show more
