Ethnic Home - Goa

This beautiful space has stolen my heart...I was so smitten by the interiors which elegantly juxtaposed ethnic elements and modern day needs. Antonia Graham is the owner of the space which is located in Goa. Featured in this month's Elle Decor magazine, entire home carries simple hues without overshadowing the elements.
What is most attractive is the central courtyard of the building, many old style homes in the south Indian villages still do have this type of courtyard which not only takes in the light but also creates a spacious feeling. 
Many times I mentioned that interiors are clustered with many decorative objects which take away the actual functionality. However this space seems to use the right amount of objects in right places with least cluster.

With a simple colour pallette and structural elements made out of traditional materials, the interior hues bring back so many childhood memories to many of us. 
Canopy bed was an integral part of our grand parents homes, and it was passed as legacy to the next generations until late 80s. 
I have always had great liking for canopy beds, and in process of getting one made.
