This is the look I’d love to have in the Chennai apartment’s guest room:
Pink and blue sequined fabric made into rectangular drum pendant lamps. Found at 1stdibs (beyond our budget but this is just a vision): a palace column from Gujarat set into a corner of the room, a huge stuffed elephant, a mahogany platform bed upon which I’d pile block print bedding like John Robshaw shown here or Les Indiennes spilling over the sides to hide the feet, and drape it with mosquito netting, and an Armritsar carpet. Storage would be in old chipped painted pieces like the floral carved sideboard and the vintage cabinet. Ancient looking pottery like this from AM Projects. And, different styles of antique vintage candlesticks from India.
