It's around this time of year where I begin to long for a getaway. To escape to a peaceful and warm climate. Just for some time out to get quiet and reflect before all that comes with a new year. Lately, I have been drawn to all things India. After studying Ayurvedic philosophy for years, I've just always been entranced with Indian spirit. When I came across this charming Indian farmhouse in the newest issue of Elle Decor, I knew just what sort of vibe my next trip will be.
This is the country home of the Kasliwal family — owners of the legendary Indian jewelry house, Munnu the Gem Palace — in a converted cowshed on the outskirts of Jaipur.
'Kasliwal, whose daily life has him surrounded by some of the world’s most valuable jewels, tells Elle Decor how nothing is more precious to him than getting away to the small, spare farmhouse outside of Jaipur that his late father Munnu renovated and decorated. The home, which is furnished with pieces Munnu gathered on his travels throughout India and the world, sits on the foothills of the Aravalli mountain range and is the perfect statement of less is more.'
