Our interior designers show you how you can bring in some bling and a whole lot of glamour to your home interiors this festive season. What’s more, some of these Diwali ideas can stay on right through the year!
- Do not hesitate to go bright – be it with wall paint ideas or string lights. Opt for a vibrant accent wall to showcase a stunning painting (or your collection of masks). You can make your pick from our extensive range of Silk luxury emulsions. Alternatively you can experiment with the stunning stencil range of emulsions from Berger Silk Designzz range or opt for our textured variants.
- Float flowers and candles in shallow brass bowls (urlis) filled with water and place the bowls around the house. These reflect light and look exotic as well.
- Use string lights with interesting effect. For instance, you can place string lights inside an old glass bottle or use string lights to decorate an unused bird cage. Try to use the lights in a unique way versus just draping it over your balcony parapet.
- Bring in bling with the use of gold and brass décor items and accent pieces. Brushed gold and dull gold are 2014’s biggest trends! ( http://bit.ly/1DPrUBDl)
- Colourful or shiny paper lanterns (kandeels) are another fun feature. Buy and string lights through it or, if you are feeling particularly creative, you can make your own. Click here -http://bit.ly/1DPrX0s to find out how you can make a pretty kandeel at home!
- If you think you cannot manage a traditional powder rangoli, create a rangoli of orange and yellow marigold flowers at the entrance and place a votive candle or an artistic diya at the centre.
- Tealights in painted glass holders always look lovely. You can buy votive holders or you can create your own using old jam jars, glass paint and wire! Place sand inside the jar to prevent messy wax spills. These look very attractive by the bed side as well!
