Fall 2012 Runway Trends – Interior Design Inspired by Indian Fashion

For Luxemi, interior design is a lot like fashion: both reflect your personality through color, texture, pattern and, of course, eclectic accents. Want your style to transition seamlessly from your closet to the rest of your home or apartment? Here are five rooms inspired by our favorite Luxemi sarees and salwars!

Fall 2012 collections and matching interior design

Given that Tangerine Tango is Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year, this Modern Striped Leheriya Saree is a great transition piece to wear between summer and fall. For a vibrant living room that mimics this saree’s texture and gold embellishments, we love pairing funky red-orange chairs with metallic accent pieces like a gold ottoman and bronze candlesticks. The room’s off-white molding against a tangerine-colored wall is a detail just as eye-catching as this saree’s gota border with buttas.

Want to pair your favorite orange hue with a cooler accent color? Luxemi’s Tangerine Salwar with Aqua Embellishments is festive, funky, and hits just the right Bohemian notes. Stick with the same chic color palate for a bedroom that reflects your quirky style. The orange and crème print curtain channels the salwar’s floral bodice embellishments, and the turquoise focal wall and leather chair offer the same stunning contrast as the look’s churridar pants. And did we mention that the white branches act as one of the cutest headboards we’ve seen in awhile?

If your style is super sweet, this Lilac Salwar with Silk Leheriya Border is the perfect starting point for a space that makes you feel lively as soon as you step foot in it. This living room’s lilac rug and magenta pillows recreate this salwar’s light yet sophisticated color palate and hit the same interesting textural notes. The finishing touch? Long, airy lavender curtains that emulate the flow and grace of this sweet salwar.

The beauty in this Blue and White Moon Jacquard Saree by Satya Paul is its ebb and flow between blue hues. You can add the same artful touch to a living room through patterns and accent pieces. Luxemi loves the contrasting blue patterns on this modern armchair, especially when paired with a glossy blue lamp and white wall art. But our favorite accent is definitely the blue and white patterned pillow, which swirls and curls just like the intricate pattern on this hand-painted designer saree, all the while evoking thoughts of the night.

We can’t think of many color pairings more classic than gold and black, and with a few twists, this quintessential combo transitions perfectly into a 21st Century wardrobe and interior design. Luxemi’s Tribal Saree with Brocade Border has rich brocade work and modern black stripes to make it simultaneously elegant and updated. What keeps this gold, black and white room so fresh is the same attention to patterns and shades. The gold frames and charcoal striped rug pick up this saree’s gorgeous border detailing and tribal vibe, and keep the room looking as light and effortless as you are.

Whether you’re incorporating your favorite Indian pattern into an outfit or an interior design, Luxemi loves how fashion brings together color and texture in an artful way.
