Home design bears a cultural soul

Written by: Abby Weingarten

Inspired by the royal palaces of their home country, one couple’s Thonotosassa residence is a love letter to both India and to each other. The husband-and-wife homeowners, who hail from Hyderabad, designed their Hillsborough County abode to usher in their 25th anniversary. The home design in the 2015-built, 8,400-square-foot, 5-bedroom, 7½-bathroom house elegantly embodies the couple’s ethnic heritage and lifestyle. “We are from central-southern India and we have a very rich culture there with our temples, so we wanted to give our house that kind of a look,” the husband says. “We were able to take that regal style and incorporate it into the décor here, and it ended up being exactly what we were hoping to achieve.”
