There’s something about Rajasthan that makes the heart skip a beat! Be it the rich culture, the warm people, the royal palaces or the colorful linen, Rajasthan gives you plenty of reasons to fall in love with it.
Drawing inspiration from this splendid land of colors and glory, we present to you 10 stunning ways to bring home a slice of Rajasthan!
1. Low-level Furniture
During the ruling era, the kings of Rajasthan used low-level furniture. And this someone got passed on through the years and is an important décor feature of contemporary, yet truly Rajasthani homes. Something worth trying!
2. Beautiful Wall Murals

3. Jaipuri Linen
The famous Rajasthani tie-n-dye fabrics, made using an age-old and purely organic method, can give a unique and truly Rajasthani appeal to your interiors. You can choose to use them in curtains, upholstery or bed linen.
