Home & Away: India

They say that travel broadens you - well, it will certainly give you a design idea or two. Why not evoke your sense of wanderlust with decor from some of the world's most exotic locales?




The hallmarks of home decor in India: intricate patterns, rich, vibrant colors and furniture most often made from woods like teak, rosewood and ebony. Paintings and other artwork, meanwhile, are scarce—instead, decorative panels and embroidered rugs often adorn the walls.

The Taj Mahal in Agra took some 22 years to build, and more than 1,000 elephants were used to transport materials for construction.
