We adorned this traditional home with typical Marathi vintage photographs. The Tambe family flaunted the subtle traditions of sarees and hairstyles to match their beautiful home in their photographs. This also became the main wall decor of each room.

Moving on to the bedrooms Indian style interior design is among the most exotic, interesting and complex decor styles to work with. Due to the differences in the culture, history and art across the country,  Indian interior design has many variants. Here, we played with bold reds and deep greens embellished with golden. We also enhanced the walls with typical Marathi style portraits of this beautiful family. Here, functionality was a top priority. The poster bed was made to have ample storage below  and a desk was created because Shalaka and her husband work a lot from home…
