1. Striking lighting for the living room
Your living room is the first to make an impression as soon as someone walks into your home. Getting yourself a striking chandelier can create a festive ambiance in no time. The chandeliers don’t just light up the whole room, but the colours and designs can add sophistication and a sense of celebration to the interiors as well. But one Diwali home interior design tip here, is to choose the right chandelier.
- Determine the right diameter; choose one that is slightly bigger than too small
- Measure the length of the chandelier; the taller the ceiling, the longer the chandelier can be
- Decide where you want to hang the chandelier; consider optimum lighting always
- Choose a style that matches the other interiors
- Adjust the height of the chandelier based on the roominess of the space
Ps. You can add such lighting to the other rooms too.
2. Bring in some Indian decor items
Traditional Indian decor items tend to create just the right vibe for festivals. Choose items in brass or in gold polish to bring in a the festive look to any of your bedrooms – it could be small table lamps, collectibles, statues or even good luck charms. You could also choose to pick just one decor item that serves as the centre piece of the room, instead of trying to change everything you already have. For example, adding a rich collectible on the coffee table in your living room, makes an impression instantly.
3. Furnish with the right products
One of the most simple yet effective Diwali interior design ideas, is to simply bring in some new furnishing. Some colourful cushions, rich looking bed sheets, changing up the curtains or even just buying some new bedspreads, can add a cheerful mood for the occasion. All you need to do, is look for the right pieces.
4. Redo the walls of your home
Another trick to make your home look Diwali ready, is to redo your walls. Simply creating an accent wall or getting paneling done in your rooms can completely change the way your interiors look. This won’t just get you in the mood for festivities, it will also add a positive vibe to the space for days.
You can change the way your walls looks by simply adding a few new paintings or wall pieces too. It lets you stick to a theme as well!
5. Bring in a furniture centre piece
We have been sharing some Diwali interior design ideas on Instagram. One of them being using a furniture piece as the centre piece in a room. This expert tip can actually be used in all the rooms of your home – be it the living, dining, bedroom or even the study!
6. Prepare the pooja room
Now the pooja room is obviously the most important part of Diwali. To give your pooja room a new look, you can add some traditional lighting to the space, with diyas and minimal lighting fixture. You can also bring in new statues of the Gods and Goddesses to welcome the positivity during the festivities. Use a lot of gold in the the interior design of the space, as shown here by our expert interior designer, Joel Villegas Alonzo.
7. Make your home smell good
One of the things we really like about this festival, is how you can play with lights, candles and fresh flowers all over your house. Take it a notch up and bring in some potpourri, scented candles, incense sticks and incense oils. You can use these to instantly add a little festive vibe to all your rooms. The best thing about this tip, is that you can pick a scent that you prefer for every room.
