Of the many amazing art exhibitions in New York City this fall, my favorite by far is "Master Painters of India, 1100-1900" at The Met. The bright colors and striking combinations provide inspiration for bold choices in home decor.

Images 1. and 2 are from The Metropolitan Museum. Image 1, entitled Radha and Krishna on a Bed at Night (1830). Image 3 is from Canadian House & Home and shows how to use bright red and blue, paler yellow and white in a living room.

Visit The Met's webpage for "Wonder of the Age; Master Painters of India, 1100-1900." The exhibition is on view until January 8, 2012.
