Indian Tradition Meets American Style
In the 1970s, Mitesh Trambadia’s parents immigrated from India to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where they adopted the design style of the ’70s US into their new home. Mitesh, born two years later, cites that as a part of his design influence. But now, living outside Washington, DC, with a family of his own, Mitesh has turned the trend around, styling his family’s home to reflect their Indian heritage.
“My cultural background is a huge inspiration for my home and what I want to share,” Mitesh says. And he shares generously, on Instagram at Desi Meets Design, where he highlights curated designs with traditional folk art and shows his audience how those traditional art styles can be incorporated into a more updated setting. His home in the DC suburbs is filled with color and light, art and tradition, and a sense of community where all are welcome.
