1. ADD SOME COLOUR
The first and foremost need is to cover all stains and marks and for that, you need to get a coat of paint or some smart touch ups done. Choose contrast of two or more colours which will make your room look elegant and modern.
Adjust your old furniture. Dare to exchange some old ones with new according to need. If you are planning to call a large number of guests, we advise you to by some modern and multipurpose use furniture to meet the need, like- a decorative centre table with foldable chairs, an adjustable cabinet with detachable sections.
3. ADD SOME EXTRA DASH OF COLOURS
Now that you have done with wall colour and furniture, try to add more colours by adding some ethnic cushion covers, bright curtains, a table runner and fabrics of your choice.
Torans are old yet simply elegant things to set the festive mood right. There are various types of torans available these days – handicrafts torans, recycled torans, paper torans, and most recent is the dream-catcher toran. These small beautiful things will easily add charms to your home.
5. SHOWY THINGS
A sleeping Ganesha idol, a face of Buddha, some terracotta hanging pots, small metal bells, copper wall decors……and here is the never ending list of items you can use to make your home ready for these auspicious time.
6. CANDLES AND LAMPS
When it comes to festivals in India, you can never miss these diyas and candles. Now-a-days, wide range of candles- scented candles, floating candles, sea shell candles and also varity of diyas like-earthen regular diyas, terracotta patterned diyas, hanging diyas etc are available in market. Choose different types of candles and lamps to wisely illuminate your house.
7. FLORAL HOME DÉCOR
Even if you are fully equipped with modern items for your home décor, you can’t ignore fresh flowers from the list. From rangoli to the main function of puja, you need fresh flowers the most. Besides, you can always add flowers to decorate your house- from flowery staircase supports to the gates.
8. MAKE YOUR HOME SMELL GOOD
No, by this I am not advising you to spray Ambipure now and then. Limit the use of room freshener to minimal quantity. Instead use incense stick and traditional methods. It not only makes you feel fresh but creates an ambience.
It’s common in every community in our country to draw rangoli especially during festivals. Don’t miss it. It is self sufficient to make your place look beautiful. While doing this, don’t overlook the dull corner of your house. It also needs some attention. Draw a corner rangoli, add traditional lamp stand or show pieces and illuminate it with only candle and lamp lights. Try it; you will know how magical it looks.
10. PUJA AREA
If you are doing puja at home, first and foremost task is to clean the area and separately mark it. It’s advisable to do the puja at a spacious and well illuminated place.
– Keep in mind that you shouldn’t overdo with mix and match of colours. The colours and decorations should compliment with one another.
– Sort out separate places for different activities well in advance
– Be careful while you are adding some inflammable material to decorate your home
– Engage one of your family members to keep in check all requirements
