Colourways of India – part 1

I have been getting increasingly obsessed with Indian design over the last few months, and have been totally hooked on the incredible An Indian Summer blog.  Things all came to a head last week when I shamelessly ripped off one of the features in the current edition of House Beautiful and created my own mini India-inspired paint collection, ta da! [Didn’t consciously copy the blog name btw, it must have snuck into my head sneaky-like.]

Unfortunately (for the progress of Section 4) I did not stop there…  I then got totally over-excited and put together a bunch of so-gorgeous-I-can’t-stop-looking-at-them-even-though-I-have-a-ridic-amount-of-work-to-do fabrics/wallcoverings based around four India colour palettes. 
There is just waaaay too much vibrant colour and intense pattern to include everything in one post (I think Ali thought I was a bit hysterical when he got home from work, haha), so I shall save your retinas by gradually drip-feeding them to you over the next few weeks.
Aaanyway, so first up are the fuchsia/magenta puppies:

 

 

And here are a few inspiration piccies for you – I know, I know, I’m just too good to you…

Stay tuned for instalment two next week!
