Five easy-to-follow home decor ideas for festive season

Refurbishing or re-decorating of homes for the festive season ahead uplifts your spirits and sets the mood for the year of festivities. So, why not to fill your home with colours and add accessories this season?

Scent your home

Place fragrances and candle diffusers at various places in all rooms. Nothing like walking into a home to a fresh clean fragrance. Allow the scented candles to burn for a bit for the fragrance to reach. Have the power of flowers to weave magic into the festive décor, a big urn of mogra and rose petals will swoon the senses.

Table-setting is impressive

Add an interesting bunch of flowers, sprigs on to the napkin holders and take a few moments to set the right cutlery. A well-set table only adds zest to the delicious food that is going to be placed there and around which memories and moments will be shared. Add floating candles into glass bowls filled with water for a unique table centre-piece.

Purchase some home accessories

Now is the time to go all out and indulge in that Victorian lamp or the hammered vase you have been eyeing all along. Set a little corner up with your prized accessories and give them their due, they will certainly pep up a dull room. Go for one or two big dramatic pieces rather than too many smaller ones scattered around.

Choose quirky accessories

Brighten up your abode by choosing some quirky accessories such as fun posters, coffee mugs, coasters, paper-weights, flower vases and rugs. Get on an experimental mode and simply hang an embroidered rug on a plain white wall to enhance the interior of your home.

You can also choose from funky teapots, trash bins, ashtrays and beverage glasses with funny lines and quotes. Posters and letter boards can help in adding a fun element to the home decor. Putting up some funny and quirky messages on those letter boards and changing them according to the occasion can make a huge difference and will indeed grab attention.

Add vibrant cushions/curtains

An ideal way to brighten up your space would be to decorate your room in vibrant colours and quirky furnishings. Instead of the boring whites and creams, choose the curtains in bold colours like indigo, purple and yellow. Play around with different materials or dye your old curtains in a bold colour.

You can arrange attractive cushions near your bedside or even create a floor sitting arrangement with large floor cushions. Mix different patterns, hues and sizes and choose cushions with bold prints to make it eye-catching.
