"India Style" by Monisha Bharadwaj

"India Style"-"The hidden beauty of India's Home Decor"is one of the first of these kind of coffee table books I bought and still love it to the chore each day.Any day you read you its "like a light breeze on your face".The photographs in this book flash in my mind ,whenever i think of India ,its decor and the amazing style of India.No other country has such a beautiful lady like innate style. 

This book Beautifully written and compiled with great difficulty By Monisha Bharadwaj ,Absolutely brilliant Photographs by The Master Bharath Ramamrutham. How much I adore these stalwarts in teaching me the basics of Indian Style,its just difficult for words to explain.Might be could meet each of them once:)-a lifetime.

Monisha Bharadwaj is the wife of the actor Nitish Bharadwaj is an award-winning author and food writer.She has written books ranging from Cookery to Indian design. She has published 13 books. Monisha contributes to several magazines including Elle, Delicious and Food and Travel. She appears regularly on UK TV.She runs her own cookery school Cooking with Monisha. This is one among the books written by her ,the other book being"Inside India".

Bharat Ramamrutham..words actually fall short to describe this great photographer,writer,publisher,Visual communication consultant,architect,designer...all in one..He has authored books and have been the master photographer in so many books..i adore his books and as a photographer he has influenced me a lot to learn and photograph.

India Style as Written by the book itelf is "a celebration of the richness of Indian Culture and decor.These images have been photographed  in homes throughout India.This illustrates the beauty of India from within each one homes.These images are sure to inspire any professional interior decorator and amateur.This book reveals the India style,the very practical and inspirational style of design artefacts and the key factor is they are all acheivable within your home".

This is I think one of the first book to examine the Indian style in depth.This serves as a vibrant guide,which helps you decorate from the living room corners to the outdoor spaces.It explains the origin of these ornamentations that epitomizes India an its style and includes treatment of doors,walls,floors,textiles,windows,terraces etc.

it also illustrates how brilliant colour schemes symbolize religious traditions,and often correlates to the basic elements of air,water,fire and earth.
