Indian interior design : Painted Mud huts

A while ago I posted a couple of pictures of these beautiful Indian houses with a shout out to anyone who knew anything about them. Luckily I have wonderful readers who pointed me in the Direction of a book called Indian Interiors by Taschen. This book is full to the brim with glorious interiors, so here are a few more of the beautifully decorated mud huts. Enjoy xxx

i have this book and have loved it for years! it inspired some handpainted pieces of furniture i did a long time ago but i would like to re-do them in just brown and white, so simple and rustic.

Just came across your lovely blog.

These paintings vary from state to state in India...each state having it's own special motifs. The most common type are the Waarli paintings of Maharashtra.

They are generally made with rice paste or limestone.

hey , i think the huts are from eastern region of india, Odisha. The designs on the mud walls are typical of my village. I have documented certain parts of rural odisha . would love to share with you too. I have recorded the way these houses are built .
The wall murals are called as "jhoti" . The traditional paint is made out of ground rice flour mixed in water. Some people use lime paint too. These prints are different for each villages.
