Anglo-Indian Inspired Designs

By: Jessica/Arcadian Home

Hi everyone! I'm Jessica, a writer for Arcadian Home, a blog and website where you'll find the latest in interior design trends and just the right pendant lighting to go with them. An interesting period for interior design occurred when the English incorporated their own interior designs into their homes in faraway countries, and they brought furnishings and materials back to England. Today, Anglo-Indian interior designs are still popular, for its mix of traditional English designs and colorful, intricate Indian furnishings. I hope you enjoy!
