As the festive season is nearby, this is the best time to give your home a flawless transformation.
For a good reason, all major celebration galas come in the autumn. A vibe of affection spreads in the air a couple of weeks before the cold winter, which marks the end of a year-long wait for our favorite—the festival season. Without prejudice, everyone feels cheerful due to a sense of warmth in their hearts. We shop for and exchange gifts, meet our relatives to congratulate and spot the decorations everywhere.
Colorful lights are lit as the sun sets early. The aura starts to illuminate with the dusk. This is why we are excited to share some of the pretty ideas to add delight to your house in advance and get ready for the good times ahead.
As the festive season is nearby, this is the best time to give your home a flawless transformation. The key is not to jumble up the things creating chaos, but to fashion a mix of both contemporary and customary styles. The most beautiful and comfortable spaces are actually fabricated with a wide variety of methodological approaches. Keeping in mind the importance of not impacting the environment adversely, we can do some things differently, to make our place special this year with a modern touch while preserving the traditions.
Nothing can beat the joy of buying ‘diyas’ (little clay bowls) from the market and painting them in pretty colors. You can also make diyas out of eggshells, flour dough, and seashells. The regular oil diyas require quite a bit of preparation, i.e., soaking them in the water overnight and adjusting the cotton beads before use. People have been doing it during the Diwali week for as long as they can remember and it should not stop.
Thanks to the technology, we have options of LED diyas and flameless lanterns which come in stunning colors and designs, and are a real treat to the eyes. Imported decoration lights like LED strings, diyas, lanterns, and glitter balls are plentiful in the markets, available to buy at surprisingly cheap prices.
A perfect balance is maintained as orthodox decor techniques call for uniformity, while the modern decor may be asymmetric. Glass bottle light ideas add a highly attractive touch to your settings. Therefore, as a unique thought, used glass bottles and jars are doing a great job by being the subject of ornamental artwork. An exquisite glimpse can be accomplished by hanging lanterns crafted with those glass bottles, right at your doorstep.
Conventional styles are the standard of home decor in any festive season. With the use of beautiful patterns, a modish living room would depict exceptional design outlines without being pretentious, which always stands the test of time. Old-fashioned interiors are easy to detect as ‘ordinary’ since they have a very definite look. Customary colour schemes in your house may seem saturated, hence the reason why everyone wants to see that paint job done at home, well before long-awaited occasions. Pairing contemporary furniture with standard styles can be a mismatch, if not dealt with care. For example, normal elements like tufted upholstery for the sofa, a bench seat, and others will play perfectly with the modern furniture pieces, such a home workstation with a table.
Coming back to the temporary measures, it takes time and effort to decorate the center of your premises’ floor. But, like the saying goes, ‘the best is not easy to achieve’, trinket floor work would memorialize the occasion you are about to celebrate. Visitors are instantly amazed by the complex dedication, only to get a picture along with that particular portion of the alluring ground. Wall and door hanging toran is a handicraft to admire these days. An authentic touch of tradition is completed by using colorful beads and toran in a modern house, which not only adds to the elegance but also conserves the culture of almost all regions, dating back to thousands of years.
With carefully selected decorative objects to polish a modern house, anyone could get exceptional results with an appealing symmetry during a festival. Old-fashioned items like paper ribbons and balloons are easy to predict and gives a saturated feel to our eyes, maybe like an ordinary look.
Hence, group together a collection of sparkling glass candles and arrange them on a tray to give your space a classic royal look. Floating tea light holders would give an ethereal glow to the ambiance. Balloon lights—a type of lovely luminaire—give a glamorous addition to your preparations, which are readily available in the market for a nominal price. If it is feasible, the home furniture can be adjusted with matching accessories such as curtains and carpets for a modern outlook, given the present-day perception of continuous improvement and ergonomics.
