Showcasing India's Heritage via Stunning Wallpaper Design

India's fame for flora dates back centuries, celebrated for its diverse ecosystems. The sacredness of certain trees in Hinduism, like the banyan and neem was integral to Indian culture. 


Tree Of Life

Excel Home Decor houses modern wallpapers that capture the essence of Indian heritage. For instance, the ‘Tree of Life’ (7809-1) from the Deshaj Collection carries motifs whose roots delve into the underworld and its trunk links the earth to the heavens.

Transcending all three spheres it symbolizes birth, maturity, death and rebirth.

 

 

Indian Ragas & Designer Wallpapers for Ethnic Walls


Indian Ragas are intricately interlinked with the seasons, forming a profound connection to India's heritage. Each Raga is designed to evoke specific emotions and capture the essence of a particular season. For example, Raga Malhar is associated with the monsoon, reflecting the joy and intensity of rains, while Raga Basant is linked to spring, embodying the renewal of life.

Raga Mrig, while not exclusive to Rajasthan, Raga Mrig (Sanskrit for "deer") evokes the imagery of a graceful deer through its soft, lilting notes. It conveys emotions like gentleness, alertness, and vulnerability, qualities often associated with deer.

Inspired by Rajasthani paintings, Hirana (HR-W-01) is a designer wallpaper that beautifully captures on your walls a romantic scene in a leafy glade where two deer play, accompanied by fluttering hummingbirds, creating a harmonious ambience as nature itself sings a raga.

 

This harmonious integration of music and nature in Ragas reflects India's deep cultural and seasonal awareness, enriching its heritage.

 

Kalamkari Designs For Artistic Indian Walls

Bloom Of SpringThe art of Kalamkari, with its origins dating back to ancient Indian civilizations, is a testament to the country's artistic legacy. This traditional technique involves hand-painting or block-printing on fabric, and references to Kalamkari can be found in ancient texts and depicted in sculptures and paintings.

Bloom of Spring (7808-1) from Deshaj features a resemblance of florals in the form of a stylised interpretation of the borders of Kalamkari textile fragments.

 

 Connecting to our Roots: Damask Patterns For Ethnic Walls

Damask weaving with floral motifs, often inspired by chintz (a printed or painted multicoloured cotton fabric), has historical roots. The weaving technique itself has been practised since ancient times, and during the medieval period, the influence of chintz patterns became prominent.

Damask textiles featuring intricate floral designs can be found in historical European and Asian cultures, showcasing the global exchange of artistic influences. 


A distinctive damask, Mystical Gulbahar (7806-1) incorporates imaginative floral patterns inspired by chintz, symbolizing an everlasting summer day and evoking an immediate sense of nostalgic atmosphere.

 

The jewellery worn by women is vividly detailed in ancient Tamil texts, such as the Sangam literature, showcasing meticulously crafted gold adorned with precious gems, including uncut rubies, emeralds, diamonds, and pearls. 


In the 'Nature's Ragas' collection, Maharani's Jewel (MJ-W-01) pays homage to the intricate gold jewellery worn by ancient Tamil women, featuring designs with uncut rubies, emeralds, diamonds, and pearls.
