Houses look beautiful during Diwali. It is a time for family and friends to come together to celebrate the festival. For me, it is also a time to show off how beautiful my home can look.
Let me share some of my Diwali decoration ideas with you.
#1 Hanging lights
Not the usual string of lights, but actual lanterns. You can either have bulbs or pick up those that need oil and a wick. The latter takes a little effort to manage all through Diwali, but believe me it is worth it.
#2 Cellophane shades
If you don’t have lampshades in your rooms because it’s a rented apartment, don’t worry. Simply get some bright cellophane paper and cover the lights in the room for you diwali decoration. You can also change the bulbs for a warmer or brighter colour.
#3 Wall decals
Have you given any thought to wall decals? Since the house has been cleaned thoroughly, you can get a beautiful design on one of your concept walls. It can be connected to Diwali or just be a reflection of who you are. Remember, decals are almost always permanent.
#4 Decorative cushions
This is when you can bring out your special cushions. Usher in an air of festivity with brightly-coloured cushions in beautiful designs and with a Diwali theme.
Could I interest you in some DIY Diwali decorations? Fashion coasters using artificial mirrors and glass. You can make traditional or contemporary designs and stick them on CDs or cardboard cut-outs. Utility and aesthetics, in one shot.
#6 Chocolate bouquets
Wrap chocolates in bright paper and make a bouquet out of it. Display these around the house. They look pretty and can also be given out to children as Diwali treats.
#7 Create an artsy corner
Put together some earthen pots, flowers, diyas and dim lights to create an artsy corner. You can do this outside, at the entrance, or make a special corner in your house which guests can enjoy and admire.
#8 Doily lights
Pick up intricate doilies from a store nearby and string them together. Add fairy lights and you have delicate lighting to make your guests gasp.
#9 Create a holy corner
This is when you can bring the gods out from their usual resting place in the home temple. Place them all around the house and create an environment of divinity in the house.
While you are at this, don’t forget to make a beautiful Rangoli to invite the Goddess to your home this Diwali. Check out these innovative Rangoli ideas you should try this Diwali!
#10 Floor lamps
Do you have any old floor lamps, the brass ones that need oil and a wick? You can find antique-looking ones at a bazaar near you. Place these around the house and bring an Indian touch to the festivities.
