CasaSugar: How would you describe your home décor style?
Kavi484: My décor style definitely tends toward dark woods, rich textures, and earthy, bold colors. I guess you could call it “ethnic” if you wanted to describe it using a single adjective. My parents are from India, and I have definitely been influenced by an Indian aesthetic in the colors and styles that I like. Both the way I dress and the way I would decorate a home reflect that heritage – I wear lots of bright colors and bold patterns, often mixed together, and that is how I would decorate my home as well. I also like to wear bold makeup and tons of jewelry, and similarly I tend to have lots of knickknacks and accessories in my home. I have a big collection of Indian textiles I’ve been amassing since college, just waiting to be put to use in my “grown-up” home after I graduate from law school! They are in a mix of colors, patterns, and textures, which is very “me.”
I also love to sew, and have often put that skill to use in decorating. In college, I made curtains for my apartment out of an old silk sari that once belonged to my roommate’s mother – a deep teal with magenta borders and gold threadwork. I’ve also sewed slipcovers for chairs, duvet covers for my bed, etc. I have a pair of Isaac Mizrahi for Target tea towels with that bold, photographic pink poppy on them (the one he also put on a duvet cover) that are just waiting to be made into throw pillow covers!
