Reds and Blues for Your Traditional Setup

Traditional Indian homes are epitomes of grandeur, regalia, and luxury. Whether it is an ancestral property that has been passed down generation after generation or a conscious choice to celebrate tradition and the rich heritage, in an otherwise contemporary day and age, traditional living is here to stay. Traditional setups have a quaint charm about them and there are more things you can do to incorporate that charm in your abode, than can be counted on the fingers. An essential element that takes center stage when it comes to incorporating rugs to complement a traditional setting is a definitive color palette. The mental image that stirs inside our minds when anyone mentions a palatial space, imbued with a rich heritage and extravagance, makes us think along the lines of color. Associated with royalty throughout history, the multiple shades of reds and blues have aptly captured the essence of traditional living. A lot of olden-day art bears motifs of the peacock and floral motifs with crimson and sangria. Architectural marvels adorned with lapis lazuli and red sandstone stand true to the indulgence of eras gone by. The splendour of the reds and the blues is unmatched, oozing lavishness. Obeetee brings to you five exquisite accents that can be the perfect additions to your traditional home setup.
