Wall decals or texture painting highlight the home. Inducing cultural aspects into it can change the mood of your home. If painting patterns seems a bit of a task you can always stick to wall decals which are much more convenient and hassle-free. Nature, animals and birds are highly significant in ancient Indian Paintings and having motifs to resemble them can bring out a royal look to your home.

Sculptures and Paintings:
