3. Floating candles
Imagine an atmosphere that soothes your soul and the sweet fragrance of flowers that drifts you off to another world. Divine, isn’t it? Use a brass or earthen Urli at your home entrance and fill it up with water, some flowers like rose or marigold, herbs and a few floating candles for visual interest and radiance. You can display them in the unused corners of rooms and brighten up even the darkest and dullest corners of your home.
4. Replace white lights with yellow lights
There can never be too much light during Diwali – the festival of lights. Choosing the right kind of lights for your home is necessary. White lights can be too harsh and distracting. Use soft yellow lights to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. It is sure to enhance the festive mood in the air.
5. Patterned cushions
Since it is Diwali, you can be a little adventurous and opt for glitzy pillow covers with sequins and bling on them. Throw in some colourful, patterned cushions covers and you are all set!
Metallic hues of cushions can be a great addition. It will add a touch of festive vibes to your room. Don’t be afraid to mix and match. Cushions come in different shapes and sizes, making for an interesting display. Try contrasting colours, shapes and prints, and place them differently, in a cosy chair, a functional stool or a comfy couch.
You can arrange a set of colourful cushions and transform any room into a colourful, cosy haven. You don’t have to stop at that! You can even place a few colourful cushions of different sizes around your mattress or carpet for some visual interest. Also, if you think print on print is a faux pas, you are mistaken. Prints are not just for plain surfaces. You can pair print on print, especially if you have a patterned sofa. All you need to do is pick a cushion cover in a colour that is complementary to the prints on your sofa.
Pick out potpourri in colours matching your colour scheme so that it becomes part of the entire room. Adding a potpourri is a sure-shot way to create a heavenly abode. Just get some brown, orange and red coloured potpourri and fill up the glass vases and bowls with them. To make the potpourri arrangement aromatic, you can mix your favourite combination of essential oils, spices and woody scents in the bowl.
7. Candle holders
Diwali is synonymous to everything bright and sparkly. So if you are hosting a dinner party, you can decorate your table with appealing sparkly and glittery candle holders that will elevate the dining table and create a soothing atmosphere. This décor piece can easily add a mesmerising touch to your table setting. They make perfect centrepieces on dining tables and coffee tables. The best part is that they take up less space but always make the room stand out.

Spruce up your bedroom and transform your room with a touch of ethnic prints. For a dramatic makeover, hang an exquisite tapestry above your bed. You can enhance not just a bed, but a couch and also a window with it!
