Apsara is the name for female air spirits. “These spirits guarded the celestial rain or may have represented the rain cloud itself. Wisdom bearers (Skt. Vidyadhara) in particular, appeared flying albeit without wings, as guardians of doors, windows, and thresholds for 1,000 years.” In studying the statues of apsara spirits depicted in the temple complex in Cambodia, the largest spiritual monument in the world, owner of Apsara Interior DeisgnTM , Tracey Garet, was inspired. She decided that the beauty, and elegance that the apsara’s embodied, the way they were sculpted, and the stories surrounding the nature of their being was a perfect match for the mysterious aesthetic of her interior design company.
Apsara’s are also said to be able to change their form into any shape or being. Thus, the icon for Apsara Interior DesignTM is that of a horse flying through the sky. The flying horse embodies the strength, speed, grace, and aerial elegance. Attributes that also tie into Tracey Garet’s business model: strong furniture, elegant home décor, graceful complimentary colors, providing for a light atmosphere in the home, completed in a timely fashion.
