Said someone wise once. As we keep changing and adapting ourselves to the changing times, we often forget to show the same courtesy to our homes. Always an afterthought, home decor is usually the last on the shopping list. Get ahead of this predicament this year and bedazzle everyone with your festive decor.

We have some amazing festive decor tips for you that will help you play interior designer with your humble abodes

  1. Diyas & Lights

Nothing screams festivities more than a well lit home with bright diyas and lights! They are also an inviting symbol to your guests and symbolise love and hope. You can place diyas or lamps in different shapes, sizes and designs to brighten up your home.

  1. Eco-friendly furnishing

Your curtains, cushion covers, carpets are always the first thing one notices when they enter your home; they are also what adds sparkle to your homes. Opt for textured, organic fabrics like cotton or linens or khadi that are usually handcrafted by local artisans. Besides adding charm to your homes, these furnishings encourage a sustainable lifestyle while adding authenticity and elegance to the space.

  1. Add Glass

Yes, you heard that right. From mirrors to table tops to crockery units, glass usually tends to elevate an area, making it more sophisticated and chic. Glass also makes a place feel brighter because it bounces the light around the room. Use the empty walls to add mirrors and frames. You can also invest in good glassware for crockery this festive season.

  1. Indoor Plants

You can never go out of style with greenery. It's the most natural way to uplift your home and make it more inviting and warm. There are a variety of indoor plants you can choose and buy according to your home aesthetic. You can also recycle household items like ceramic or glass jars for the pots.

  1. Rearrange your furniture

Make it cozy and inviting for your guests to sit around and chat by having your living room furniture arranged in a way where the couches and chairs are across each other, encouraging a free flow of conversation

  1. Vases and flowers

Some colour, some elegance, vases and flowers make your home fresh and vibrant. Glass, terracotta, ceramic, your choices are endless for vases and opt for fresh flowers of your choice.

  1. Candles & Scents

Add scented soy wax candles, diffusers and incense sticks in all the rooms. This will ensure a nice and refreshing fragrance for your home while having an inviting aroma everywhere.

Don’t forget to get rid of the clutter in your homes and do a deep clean into each wardrobe this festive season. Get crafty and upcycle the things you can, or choose to donate it.
