Desi What?

So what does the word "Desi" mean exactly? Its is a reference to people or things from the Indian subcontinent (that was the most 'technical' definition I could find via google). I use it throughout this blog as a reference to a South Asian influence, whether its through art, people or home decor. This blog is my little showcase of the finer desi influences in home decor or interior design. You can call it boho, ethnic, rustic, Indian, South Asian, whatever you want really. This influence is present in design circles and I want my little blog to highlight the best parts of desi design.
