Now, knowing more about the traditional houses in India, if you wish to give a traditional touch to your modernly chalked out house plan, here are a few great projects that have blended antiquity with modernism
Now broadly speaking, traditions vary from one part of India to other. This is in a sense that north India has a different kind of outlook in their homes, west has something different from the north, south and east and so on and so forth. This means traditions vary as one moves from north to east to south to west. One thing that remains constant is the modesty and the one ness of the country that makes us united.
So now will be discussing about the traditional home art in different parts of our country.
NORTH: people from north have a really nice taste in the decoration of home. Their houses are mostly filled with furniture. The traditional home of North India would somewhat have a brown tone in its wall. That maybe a coffee colour or an off-white one. One can also have those door bandhans over the doors, which actually add to the traditional look of the home. The traditional look of the home can be complemented with red curtains or red rugs that will enhance the traditional look of the home. North Indian homes mostly have a jhumar kind of a thing that will make it look 10 times more traditional than it really looks. The only thing that one has to remember is that white coloured paint is not used in the interior of the home. White colour will make your home look modern and not traditional. So basically the paint colour that will absolutely complement the traditional house look will be coffee or light brown. One can place really nice sequenced cushions and wooden craved furniture to make it look more traditional.
EAST: people from east have almost similar taste in home’s interior like the people from north. Their way of decorating the home is almost similar, except the fact that they can have an empty space kind of a thing in the middle of the home that is called as the angan. The inner courtyard can be used as a private yet outdoor space, secluded from unwanted eyes. Pickle making, drying papads, oil bathing children would all happen here in the private patch of sunshine!
WEST: Traditional houses which gave huge importance to sustainable, energy efficient living always provisioned for a courtyard - either exterior or interior. While exterior courtyards were a place to socialise with the rest of the world, interiors were where women of the house gathered for some gossips and where rituals were regularly conducted. In the western India you will find plants and more of a nice balcony in their homes. The interior is somewhat similar to that of the homes of the north the only exception being that people in the west have love for plants as can be seen in this picture below.
SOUTH: While their lives are simpler, their interests in art, culture and tradition shows high degree of intelligence and devotion. This is evident from the way their houses have been designed. Whether it’s huge palatial ones or a moderate one - their architecture takes into account every bit of their lives - the place, geography, culture, and climate and so on. A typical South Indian home will surely have a courtyard unless it is a small city apartment. Courtyards generate a sense of togetherness. The experience of the whole family sitting together for the evening tea amidst chirping of birds is undoubtedly out of this world. This place does not need much embellishment as it comes with a comfortable seating area, which can be minimally designed using high quality wood or stone platforms and cushions. A traditional south Indian household gives special emphasis on big Puja rooms. These rooms are embellished with temple bells, which along with the sweet fragrance of flowers make an awesome start of the day. Brass flower bowls have been very common in South Indian households. A regular practice is to fill these with water and lovely petals of rose, marigold or even gerberas. Rangoli or floor murals are the most common sight in South Indian households. It is basically the highlighting factor that separates them from other households. An everyday practice for a South Indian female involves early morning Puja that is strictly followed by a beautiful rangoli pattern outside the main door.
