What Houzz contributors are saying:
Elsewhere, a neutral-coloured plaster wall is embellished with tiny mirror pieces – a type of decoration typical of homes in Rajasthan and Gujarat.The bedroom is a fine example of how to merge modern minimalism with ethnic intricacy. The ornate opulence of the haveli-door headboard is balanced by the sleek minimalism of the cabinet opposite. Take a tour of this home
5. Vintage doorframeA fantasia of vintage and contemporary elements, this Delhi residence by Group DCA is a welcome breath of fresh air. This bedroom holds an exquisite Rajasthani headboard drawn from an antique doorway of a heritage haveli. The doorway is flanked by pilasters with heavily embellished capitals, while the rounded arch and doors adorn a basic, beaded design. Open the doors to this spectacular home
Crown mouldingThis moulding is the ‘crowning’ architectural feature of a room, as it decorates the transition between walls and the ceiling. Crown mouldings, also known as cornice mouldings, can range in design from simple straight lines to intricate silhouettes, depending on the décor. As the mouldings project upwards from the wall, creating a gradual transition from wall to ceiling, they can create the illusion that the ceiling is higher than it actually is.
1. Here is an eclectic room that highlights comfort and luxury with a backdrop of traditionalism. See how the ethnic flavour is brought in through a stunning vintage wooden door from a haveli, used as a headboard behind the bed (not to forget the suspended metal lamp and the tiny mirror at the far back and right of the image that contribute to the look, too).Take a quick tour of this Delhi home
This regal dwaar (door) headboard was designed using repurposed wood. The designers drew inspiration from period Indian architecture that had massive, imposing doors at the entrance to a haveli (mansion).
“We wanted to create an eclectic home for the residents that ensures comfort along with incorporating luxury and a hint of traditionalism. For instance, in the master bedroom on the first floor, the ethnic flavour comes in through a stunning vintage door from a haveli [a traditional Indian mansion], which has been used as a headboard,” Aurora says.
