7. Upgrade your wooden furnitureWooden furniture is a hallmark of Indian interior design and is a must-have in almost every Indian home. Minimalism favours light furniture with clean-cut, contemporary lines. Instead of going with traditional Indian furniture (which is usually heavy, imposing and elaborately carved), choose streamlined wooden furniture with minimal or no decoration. This will bring in a sleek, minimalist spin to your interiors like it achieves here in this space by Architecture Brio.Find out how to buy and maintain your wooden furniture
3. Showcasing nature at its finestThis Alibaug home by Architecture BRIO delicately weaves a stream and many medicinal and fruit trees into its design. Here, the courtyard concept, minus one concrete enclosure wall, creates a comfortable microclimate. To best enjoy this intimate ambience and take advantage of the view, the ‘day areas’ of the house – dining, kitchen, living room and entrance verandah – are all located around the courtyard.
