Colors of India

People thought Uma Vaiyapuri had gone crazy when she purchased her dark, cramped, 620-square-foot studio apartment. Vaiyapuri worked with friend and architect Pam Hutter to showcase the kitchen of her Chicago apartment. They knocked down walls and filled the open floor plan with the vibrant colors and sumptuous fabrics of India, transforming the space into a magical reflection of Vaiyapuri's heritage.

This floor-to-ceiling silk fabric from India separates the bedroom from living room and sets a mysterious, romantic tone. The homeowner chose colorful pillows and accessories as a complement to the wall and fabric colors and as an expression of her personality.
