I enjoyed your perspective on creating an Indian aesthetic. To the person who commented that there was "too much white", India is well known for its wide range of brilliant colors. So use reds, saffron, yellows, oranges and earth colors as well to coordinate your style and you can't go wrong! Love that we are becoming a world with a more global outlook. I am part Indian and grew up in India. Our home is a reflection of those years and we live in harmony with both our Eastern and Western lifestyles.

The colors are so vivid and alive while being serene and peaceful at the same time! How is that possible?
