Tripura castle in Shillong is the summer capital of the Tripura family. At ease with royal lineage, embracing Khasi tribal traditions and indulging a passion for fiery north eastern food, this decoration will show you how to have it all.
If you have a place in hills, comfort and elegance cannot be mutually exclusive. Select cushy European sofas and upholster them with silk pastels. Pastels add lightness to the space which in the hills can get dark during the day, while silk adds warmth and elegance to the space.
Some of your wooden furniture, like console tables can be painted in pale colours like off-white to add brightness to the room and you could get relief from wooden panels.
Add ming vases and hand painted Chinese screen in your home to make it look elegant. Use hand painted silk tapestries, jade urns or traditional blue and white pottery in the home.
Ensure that you show off local craft traditions North Eastern basket making is known for its detailing and fine weaving. Buy large baskets or cane footstools that tell the world that you are in touch with your kingdom.
Mount a row of your family photos starting with your ancestors and ending with your babies to add a sense of history to your home.
If you collect it, display it-whether it is your stamps or your coins. The royal family of Tripura collected an eccentric variety of chairs, while Jubbal royals collected miniatures. All of these are lovingly displayed in the living rooms and make great conversation starters.
