Spaces by Nisha Tailor Interior Design are marked by their bold patterns and daring colors. Based in St. Louis, Missouri, Nisha’s vibrant Indian heritage shines bright at the forefront of her work. Her prominent use of bold blue and green are reminiscent of the feathers of a peacock, and intricate patterns are prominent in Indian interior design.
These spaces are by no means subtle or minimalist. They are an eccentric mix of eclectic styles, patterns, and textures. For example, sleek tables paired with textured fur rugs and decadent, old world chandeliers contrasted by modern lamps. In addition, Nisha isn’t afraid to use color. Bright hues cover almost every aspect of her work, and even the ceilings are often painted a bold color.
Her choice in furniture also reflects her daring approach. Instead of the standard black and white minimalist furniture popular in modern design, she chooses to feature a bohemian and unorthodox mix. Tufted and nail-head trimmed chairs are popular in her designs. And interestingly, this style of chair is traditionally associated with a more classic, formal style. However, they feel right at home amidst the mix of modern and traditional design that makes her spaces so unique. Lastly, no space by Nisha Tailor Interior Design is complete without a loud pop of yellow, her signature color.
