New Delhi, November, 2017: Looking back through the past, Royalty has always given definition to grandeur. Palaces hung with crystal chandeliers and velvet curtains and decorated with rich oriental carpets reflect an epoch of splendour, courtship and of turbulent times.
Shades of India evokes this past with a Home collection that celebrates Emerald green – a colour of royalty now much in trend. Emerald is used with contrasts of fuscia or muted colours to dress a bed or embellish a cushion. The delicate detailing enhances the richness of a room – combining tradition with the contemporary. The play of light – the soft sensuousness of a bedroom lamp – can give a sense of mystery and sensuousness.
The collection moves from emerald to more earthy tones, to blues and orange. The bed is conceived like theatre with colours acting out their roles as characters in a play. There is a dialogue between textures, mood and contrasting tones. The look is carefully rumpled to give a sense of casual aristocracy.
The Collection is available at:
G-17, Emaar Palm Spring Plaza, Golf Course Road, DLF Phase 5, Sector 54, Gurugram
