With the COVID-19 pandemic decreasing in India, it is a new opportunity for all of us to come together and spend some quality time with our loved ones. With a lot of trends significantly changing in the past two years, this is an excellent opportunity to experiment with fresh décor ideas and give your home a fresh new look for the upcoming festive season. So let’s take a look at some easy and quirky ideas that we can implement around the house when the time comes.
Give Your Lighting A New Twist
Festive lights play a key role during any major festival. Small scented candles, placed in tea light candle holders are a great way to spruce up your home and lend your house a wonderful aroma. They are small and easy to use and can be placed just about anywhere, like on the window sill (make sure the curtains are tied and kept away) or on the living room tables. You can also experiment with fairy lights for a more boho look.
The Indian heritage is so rich and vast and can be easily incorporated in our festive decor. Items that belong to your native town or culture can be placed in the entertaining area. Handmade items are a great way to support traditional artists and also look exclusive and unique. Materials like rattan and brass will give a more rustic and festive feel to your home. You can also set a theme and then go to the local market to get appropriate decor items.
Dress Up Your Table
One thing that is common among all Indians is the massive love for food, especially during festivals. A beautifully set table only serves to enhance the flavor of the great food that will be served and the atmosphere in which memories and moments will be shared. A bowl of water topped with flower petals, a shiny silk runner on the table, using fancy cutlery and scented candles are all great ideas on how you can dress up your dining table.
Miniature origami pieces are a fun and unique way in which you can dress up your home and also reduce any type of waste. Painting old papers and making lanterns out of them, carefully folding them into beautiful origami swans or birds and hanging them up will make sure your house stands out from the rest. Sticking kites on walls will give your house a more picturesque country vibe and add a great splash of color without damaging your interiors.
Go for Traditional Earthenware
Given that handi’s are such an important part of Indian heritage, why not use some traditional crockery to decorate your home in preparation for the forthcoming festival season? Handi’s can be hung from the ceiling of the pooja room, or they can be placed on the floor of the pooja room. In order to make them seem even more stunning, handi’s can be surrounded with beautiful flowers of your choosing as well as mala’s. Handis can also be painted in a variety of colors and patterns to give them a more vibrant appearance overall.
These handful festive decor tips are bound to make your house look and feel brand new and ensure your celebrations are full of fun and joy.
