With festivals coming up one after the other re-furbishing or re-decorating of living spaces uplifts our spirits and sets the mood for the festive seasons. So, we've put together a list of key home decor ideas that will brighten up your interiors and make it truly reflect your personal style.
Be Innovative With Light
Luxurious lighting is a great way to welcome the festive season. Brighten up your home's interiors to greet guests and other well-wishers. Bright lights can instantly improve the appearance of your home and lift the spirits of the season. You have the option to choose from LEDs, wall lights, lamps or chandeliers that match your interior decor. For the best effect, make sure to use warm yellow and white light. You don't have to spend a lot of money to make your space festival-ready.
Invest In Handicrafts
Handicrafts make a great choice for home decor. The markets suddenly become flooded during festivals with colorful, striking pieces that are too tempting to resist. Don't resist the temptation to buy these exquisitely made crafted beauties. You will not only make your home look better, but you will also be helping to preserve local craftsmanship.
Shop Some Home Accessories
A common and popular way to decorate your home is by adding artwork to the walls. This is your chance to get your favourite wall art you've been wanting or the wall mirror you have wish-listed. Your prized accessories will brighten up dull rooms if you set them up in a right corner. Wall are also a great spot to display photos of your most precious memories.
A home must look great, but its smell should be better. Imagine walking into a home that looks like it came straight from an interior designer's magazine but doesn't have a pleasant fragrance. There are many options available to remove bad odour from your home and keep it fresh throughout the day. You can tickle your senses with essential oil diffusers and scented candles. Place flat candles in a shallow container of water, and watch as the water's reflections interact with the flames.
Indulge Bright Festive Colors
Festive seasons and vibrant colours have always been inseparable. Your home can be Pinterest-worthy with colors that reflect the spirit of the festival. You can go bold with vibrant colours such as red and purple, or you can be subtle and modern with earthy tones that reflect the style of your personality. You can paint one wall or change the upholstery to add some bold colours.
Accessorizing your home can be a cost-effective way to make your space look great or either you can make your interiors more festive with quirky cushion covers or centrepieces as well as lush carpets and throw pillows.
Flowers Never Fail To Impress
Artificial fragrances may not be for you. It's time to look for fresh flowers. You just need a bunch of marigolds or jasmine or a bouquet of roses to make your home smell sweet at any hour of the day. Fresh flowers add a bright, vibrant look to your home and enhance the fragrance. You can choose different flowers to be used on different days depending on the theme that you have chosen!
Go Green! Go Green!
Plants are a great way to add color and style to your space. You can add dimension and depth to your space by using tall, palm-like plants on the floor as well as leafy hanging plant. You can combine pots in different colors or patterns to create an interesting look.
Fill Up With Reflections
Mirrors are one of the oldest home decor items. Mirrors can not only create a positive atmosphere, but they also make your home appear larger and more elegant. A mirror placed opposite to window will reflect more light and make the space alive.
