From the archives of...

...John Henry Claude Wilson

Photographer extraordinaire


Indian Interiors

Brass thaal (plate) with fragrant flowers on a chowki. In the center is an incense stick holder

A pichwai from Nathdwara school of painting. Chair upholstered in raw silk

Diwan (daybed) and wooden statue of Garuda-(thanks blackmamba!)

Room held together by the colorful dhurrie (rug)

A different genre of Indian home interiors with elegant furniture and rich fabrics

The lamp seems to have lacquer on brass... Block printed cushions with a rich throw

Silver coated, or quite possibly silver frame mirror

I will bring you more images from Henry's amazing work through the years capturing India, and Indian interiors, next week.

For now, I am off to London and Dusseldorf for a quick work trip..

That first photo is gorgeous...I love the contrasting carpets as well. A felicitous combination of colors...and the delicacy of the flowers in that platter really set it off.

minor fix:
I think the statue in pic 3 is Garuda and not Hanuman.

I discovered your site a few weeks ago from Sparkletopia, and it has very quickly made me mad for Indian interior style. I literally want to redo every room in my house!

India is always an exotic and instigante inspiration, everything pretty and very well composed with a beautiful work!
- I passed to see the new features and to leave I hug great of Brazil

Wow, the room looks exotic. This gave me an inspiration to create an Indian theme for my room. :D
