As a modern day brown gal, who happens to think she has some sort of design eye (or fools herself into thinking that), I often struggle with how to carefully balance Indian decor into my aesthetic. How do I bring it into my home without it looking over the top or too tacky? I certainly don't want it to scream Indian tourist board or gift shop. No flashy twinkling lights Taj Mahal for me please (yes, I had one as a kid). One technique would be to bring in bollywood. Yep, nothing gives a better nod to your roots than a colourful vintage Indian bollywood poster. Even if you're not brown, these vintage posters are colourful, eclectic and scream drama, now who doesn't want that fun in their homes?
Bright and bold. Looks fantantic. Image via my UK sis-in-law.
