South Indian Interior Design: 3 Cosy Karnataka Homes
The South Indian region is brimming with interior design ideas and exquisite local decor that is now stealing hearts in households all over the world. The earthy materials, affordable furnishings and intricate curves of traditional interior design are the highlights of most of the Karnataka homes.
In this article, we are featuring three Karnataka homes introducing you to the peculiar mix of south Indian interior design and contemporary styles.
1. Sudaiva Studio’s Radical Design Style
Necessity is the mother of invention.
Converting the earlier single-storey home into a contemporary setting with 2 more floors was a unique project for Vinay Mavinakere from Sudaiva Studio. Designing for his parents, Vinay focused on creating a cosy vacation home in his ancestral town in Karnataka.
The stunning intricate jaali work forms the complete facade of the house. The extensive use of earthy materials, spacious areas and a distinct touch of nature exemplifies a successful Indian interior design for this residence.

2. Golden Beauty from Jiten Mistry
The famous luxury home builders, Elysium Abodes and Interior designer Jiten Mistry worked together to create this stunning royal, palatial home with a touch of a French villa. The 9,500 square feet house Karnataka’s Haveri district is for a family of nine members and appears to be soaked in gold!
The ornate traditional interior design works well in this project with restored old carved doors and frames. The contemporary finish strikes a balance with the classic decor style. It is highly customized, keeping in mind the taste and lifestyles of each family member!
With seven luxurious bedrooms, this villa is a unique mix of sophistication, luxury and warmth. The intricate mosaic tiles for flooring and art deco pieces with golden hues create a glittering space with timeless aesthetics!
3. Natural Bliss from TechnoArchitecture
Like most Karnataka Homes, the connection with nature was of prime importance for this home. The interiors in this Bangalore residence in the JP Nagar area exemplify modernism and comfort.
Building upon the Japanese principles of Wabi-Sabi (accepting things with their imperfections), Rajesh Shivaram from Techno Architecture created a stunning design maximizing the natural elements in the indoors.
The interiors take full advantage of the pleasant Bengaluru weather, creating a comfortable abode from the hectic urban life. Shivaram is a fan of sustainable design styles, and the inspiration for this project came from a passionate quest to create a meaningful and lasting home on tropical architecture schemes.
The interior material palette makes use of neutral elements like white plaster, cement, walnut floors and wood cladding for the extra warmth. The veneers in the interiors amplify the warm, inviting appeal of the design. Building on a tropical inspiration, Shivaram distributed the green elements strategically across different levels of the house.
The South Indian interior design scheme has its admirers all over the world. The earthy aesthetics and the spiritual touch of the decor is something that lacks in most of the modernist and minimalist interiors today. Following the footsteps of people who have done well in the profession, the present-day designers can maximize their potential and draw numerous inspirations from these design styles!
