So, I'm not a person who's very into celebrity lifestyles, but I just had to share this home (Cher's, in L.A.) with you....I kinda like the neutral palette that she (or her interior decorator) chose; very often, I find that the inevitable interpretation of "Indian" is a riot of supersaturated jewel tones adorning everything from the walls to the floors!! Seriously, do we really know any "Indian" who lives like that? :). No wonder people get tired of OTT indian-inspired decor so soon---it would have me screaming out the door before you could say "fuchsia"!!!
So anyway, I chanced upon this feature on her home in the July issue of Architectural Digest, and I though of sharing it with you...I love many things in this home, the use of natural linens, the oh-so-gorgeous pillows and bedding, the lovely carved wood furniture...take a look and tell me what you think! Of course this is a "decorated home" and so it looks a little show-case-y, but I'm sure you can look beyond that and admire the tastefully done up decor. :)
So that figurine you see in pink is actually terracotta (it didn't show up as pink in the magazine!)
(On another note: what is this new trend of spreading animal carcasses on the floor? totally grosses me out!)
Palatial bedroom, totally OTT, but then I love those bed-linens!! :)
Her gorgeous balcony, replete with a charpai and a view! Apparently, her boudoir is one large, seamless space, very "loft" like! That's one fancy "room", don't you think? :)
I love the almost raw-silk like look of those cushions! This winter, when I'm cooped up inside, I may finally take some scissors and hack into my old raw-silk kurta--it was destroyed by some mysterious party food spill! I think there's enough material to make one gorgeous cushion!!!
