15 Indian Home Décor Ideas That Are Full of Style
1. This home in North India celebrates all things South Indian
We love the simplicity of this living room and how the blue chair and artwork pop against the sand-colored walls. The wall art gives the space character without drawing too much attention away from the focal points of the room.
2. Step Inside the Delhi Home of an Indian Princess
The living room of this Indian princess is a feast for the eyes and combines bright, vibrant colors beautifully. It’s the epitome of Indian home décor and was clearly designed with entertaining in mind.
The large mirror helps make the room feel more spacious and brighter. Careful placement of the sofas provides a comfortable space to relax and converse with friends, family or guests. The ottoman-style seating on the opposite wall creates a more relaxed space. Poufs can serve as room dividers and additional places to sit.
An abundance of colorful pillows makes the space cozy and inviting.
3. Rajasthani Style Interior Design And Decor Ideas
In this Rajasthani-style home, guests truly get comfortable. The floor sofa’s mustard color keeps the vibrant pillows, area rug and curtains grounded. The hanging pendant lamps and plants add to the cozy and welcoming atmosphere.
Despite the abundance of colors and patterns in this space, it still feels balanced and inviting. The key is to incorporate like-colors and to choose just a few dominant hues to play off of.

5. The Thakurs’ Colorful Home Is an Ode to Rich Fabrics and Patterned Floors
This colorful room is inviting, with patterned tiles, silk furniture, lime plaster walls and vintage furniture. The teal sofa is the focal point of the space and complements the purple/pink and blue rugs. Vibrant patterned throw pillows match the throw rugs and wall art. The rustic coffee table shows off little knickknacks that highlight the family’s personality. The curtains tie the room together and potted plants bring natural elements into the space.
6. Vibrant Sitting Area
If you love the bright colors of Indian home décor, you’ll love this space. The plush floor cushions provide a comfortable place to sit and read or meditate. Plants are the focal point of this space, which feels like a jungle. The candle stand at the center of the room and red area rug adds to the cozy atmosphere here. The ottoman next to the door is the perfect place to store a stack of books.
If you don’t want to put a space like this near a door, it will work just as well near a windowed wall or a bright corner of a room.

This space would be perfect for an entryway or a sunroom where you can entertain guests.

This simple sitting space puts a modern spin on traditional Indian décor. Earthy tones from the wood, artwork and upholstered chair ground the space, while the blue rug and blanket add some color. The off-white curtains balance out the room, allowing for privacy or to let in natural light. The modern floor lamp makes this chair the perfect place to read a book or enjoy a cup of tea.
9. Oonjal – Wooden Swings in South Indian Homes
Indian home décor is stunning, and it can also be a lot of fun. One of the iconic pieces in Indian homes is the swing. Add in some pillows, and you’re half way there with creating this look. A beautiful rug to put your feet on and push off of when swinging will also help.
You can also add in end tables and seats, like are seen in the back of this picture. However, the swing and rug are more than enough to mimic this room’s look. It’s fun, relaxing and different.
10. A Chettinad Style Apartment in Bangalore
This is one room that is easy to recreate because there’s not much going on. However, you’ll notice that the main focal point is the hanging lights. You’ll find a few different varieties of these chandeliers, including this floor lamp that doesn’t require you to hang it from the ceiling.
Add in some window treatments, and you’ve completed this look.

You won’t be able to recreate this room completely without some renovation work, unless you have your own window seat. However, you can still purchase a cube bench, place it against your window and put a few throw pillows on top of it.
Next, it’s impossible to ignore the stunning rug and two-tier table in the middle of the room.
Finally, add in a cube pouf, sofa and window treatments. Of course, place flowers on your end tables, a pendulum light or hanging lamp in one corner and you can add an additional sofa or chair if you have the space.

This room is simple, sleek yet extremely enticing. Imagine walking into this room with the oversized mirror on the wall, wicker table and matching chairs. Dark wood tones fill this room, but you can experiment with your own color options.
Curtains drape the side of the windows, which, if you haven’t figured it out yet, is a major design touch in Indian home décor.
However, this design isn’t quite finished. You’ll also need the perfect rug and some tall floor lanterns. Add in some flowers or oranges on the table like in this pin, and you’ll have your own Indian oasis in your home.

Stunning is the perfect word when viewing this little oasis. A pink accent “sofa” truly makes this room special because it provides deep contrast that Indian home décor is known for offering. Large curtains box the room in and cause a sense of separation.
Add in a beautiful floor lamp, and you’re able to recreate this look in your own space. Don’t forget to add your own splash of color and style into this room.
