Ethnic is in with a vengeance. So many modern Indian homeowners are finding new ways to include ethnic designs and art into their personal spaces. So we decided to feature some of our favourite desi designs from our archive. Here are our top 5 picks!

1. We just loved this bedroom designed by The Working Ants. The beautiful combination of the Ikat bedspread, wooden jaali work in the headboard and the ceiling skirting, and the stained glass doors at the entrance. The two hanging lamps were just icing on top of an already delicious cake.

2. There cannot be colours more desi than deep reds and oranges. Sahil And Sarthak combined these rich colours with folk art motives on the wall art and pillowcases to make for a folksy beauty of a bedroom.

4. This room by Inner Space Design had the most stunning headboard extending from behind the bed up to the ceiling. We loved the usage of raw stone and tiles with traditional folk motifs.
