Inspired Friday ~ Colorful India


{Photo via}

The colors of India are so vibrant and gorgeous. Particularly Sari's, which is a strip of unstitched cloth that is draped over the body in various styles. It is popular in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Burma, and Malaysia. The most common style is for the sari to be wrapped around the waist, with one end then draped over the shoulder baring the midriff. The sari developed as a garment of its own in both South and North India at around the same time, and is in popular culture an epitome of Indian culture.

If you want to bring colorful, bold, worldly bohemian luxury to your home, here are some photos that we find very inspiring. Don't be afraid to go big with color. Happy Decorating!
