Bringing India to Europe

If you live in Milan, Florence, Rome or Madrid, please raise your hand. And, if you love all things Indian, raise your other hand. This post is going to make you happy. Very happy. For I am sharing Lisa Corti’s fabulous line up of Indian furnishing, furniture, garments and pottery – a store that is located in your very own city! So read on. And yes, you may put your hands down now…unless you can scroll using telekinesis 😉
Others, i.e. non-residents of above mentioned cities: Do not despair! Lisa Corti’s goodies also retail in other European and American cities. I guess that leaves folks from Asia Pacific..well, India is just a flight away anyway! And for us in India, more inspiration on what to look out for the next time we go shopping. 🙂

Regions/Cities in India from where Lisa sources (and designs) her products

Posters of popular Hindu deities as pop art


Cotton cloth from the south of India
These curtains remind me of sarees worn by nuns (in Calcutta)!

Stock up on colorful cushions and pillows for upcoming autumn and winter months
 

Lovely dresses for kids and us

Great inspiration for India inspired kids room


The stores look lovely too!

  2. I guess I am way too late to check out this awesome post. I totally loved it. The white curtains remind me of "veshti's" in tamil (& dhotis in hindi). I actually was planning on using white dhotis as draperies for my apartment. I love the feel, touch and look of the veshtis especially the used cotton ones 🙂

  3. Have I told you lately, that I love you (all)? :D…as you can see, I am in a singing mood today.

    Thank you so much for dropping by : old friends and new. Keep dropping and hum a tune or two with me the next time 🙂

  5. The furniture, the colorful pillows really suit the India inspired theme of this interior design. The bed looks so cozy and comfortable. Because of the colorful colors the ambiance of the house is very joyful and happy. I really like the design.

  7. looks like a bunch of colorful must-have's. I better get shoppin'. =)
    I particularly love the canopy bed. Since childhood, I think it's many-a-girl's dream to have feel like a princess in her very own canopy bed. And Indianize it as shown here?!? Doesn't get much better than that. Wonder if it comes in my size. Oh my poor husband.
