Traditional Indian homes are typically decorated in rich colors, and intricate patterns. You will also find exotic textiles, and embroidered tapestry around the home. My favorite is a wooden swing which magically hangs in the living room.
Naalukettu- a courtyard is created within the four sections that make a traditional Kerala house. Lots of woodwork and red tiles are common in these homes. This type of home is especially beautiful when it rains and also provides great natural cross-ventilation.
