26 SEPTEMBER, 2019

Navaratri, Diwali and Durga Puja, all the most awaited festivals of the year are coming closer to us as September is passing. During these auspicious days, our entire country gears up to welcome the future by grand celebrations. Greetings, meetings and decorations, every festival is never complete without all of these. Decorating the house for the festival along with family and friends is a sheer joy. You must be having the entire decoration plan ready on your mind for the upcoming festival seasons. So, here are five more home décor ideas to give your house a festive look this season:

Living Room Re-arrangement

The living room is like the heart of your house, so decorating it is essential on the eve of festivals. This is the place in your home where you will hold family gatherings on celebrations, so rearranging them accordingly will enable you to use the area wisely. Have your sofas and coffee tables arranged in a way people can comfortably sit and chat while enjoying festival sweets.

You can also change the old-fashioned furniture of the house to give a modern look. Nowadays, the market is filled with beautiful furniture options that you can buy for your home. Furthermore, you can get customised furniture made for your house. You can select the best design and leave the funding part on home improvement loans.

Colour Picking

You can also experiment with colours during festivals. Every festival has its own shades like Diwali’s saffron and orange palette or Durga Puja’s contrasting combination of white or red. You can incorporate upholstery made of these colours in your house to add charm in it on festivals. Cushions and sofa-covers of these colours with the heavily embroidered border with gold create magical effects. Furthermore, you can use every vibrant colour in the palette like green, pink, yellow or violet when you are decorating your house for Navaratri. 


Whether it is Diwali, Durga Puja or Navaratri, no festival is complete without lights. LED lights, fairy lights strings or old-fashioned Diyas, you can be creative while using light to decorate your house during festivals. Lights have a very positive effect on the mind, and that’s why they set up the right joyful mood for festivals.

New Accessories

Hunt down the local shops for home décor objects such as decorative cushions, ceramics, quilts, paintings, souvenirs and old gifts and showcase them in the living room. Festivals are about doing more, so such colourful objects make the aura of the house very festive. Diwali is the right time to buy that massive vase or Victorian you have wish-listed for a long time. Whereas, you can go on a shopping spree of numerous tiny accessories like idols or sculptures while decorating the house of Navaratri or Durga Puja.

Shimmering Bliss

Going bold with gold is one of the best things to do to decorate your house before the festival.  Shimmering metallic things add a heavenly charm in your house on festivals. So, polish all the brass or copper things in your house. Experiment with bold colours of burnt orange or fiery red on this festival season to make them more auspicious.

Festivals are the long-lasting memories. Take a stroll down your memory lane, you will start recalling every Diwali or Durga Puja you ever celebrated. That’s why it is worth taking efforts to decorate your house. Moreover, when you can get a home loan to buy a house of your dream, why not take home improvement loans to furnish the same house in a way you love? Do think about the best options to decorate your house in the upcoming season of festivals.
