Here’s an interesting blog on cricket-inspired home decorating colour ideas for all you cricket buffs.
India is a cricket-loving nation. Although people both young and old are divided by teams, they are united by their love for the game. We have seen fans go to any length to support their favourite teams, be it by sporting tattoos, going to the stadiums hours before the match or travelling to faraway places just to catch their cricket stars on the field, in action!
And now, with India’s favourite and exciting T20 games going on, we believe it is the perfect time for people to display their love for cricket and their favourite teams right inside their homes, through their home colour and interesting choices of décor, be it through a customised cricket-inspired artefact, treasured memorabilia or a ready-made accent piece like a floor rug, bed covers or cushions.
We have put together some colour suggestions that can instantly liven up your living space. Go forth, wear your emotion on your sleeves and get ready to flaunt your love for your favourite cricket team!
For all you Bengaluru team fans, you can show your unwavering loyalty through bold shades of red and black in your living space. If you are looking for specific room décor ideas such as cricket themed bedroom ideas or living room ideas, you can create a dramatic statement with red on three walls of the room and feature a black accent wall, reminiscent of the team colours.
Our colour experts recommend CHERRY PIE (1A0363) and PIERCING BLACK (8A2614) from Berger’s Colour Catalogue that represent the colours of team from the Garden City.
For the fans of the ‘Whistle Podu’ team Chennai, you can display your love through an effervescent shade of yellow, associated with the team. If yellow on all four walls of a room seem to be too much for your liking, you can make a stand-out feature wall in your living space with this cheerful hue.
Our colour experts believe that using a shade like SUMMER SUN (3A0386) from Berger’s Colour Catalogue works best to showcase your love for the Chennai team.
For ‘Aamchi Paltan’ – the supporters of the Mumbai team, go for a striking cobalt blue in your living space. This will be perfect for a cricket themed bedroom or living room.

Our colour experts recommend BERRY BLUE (5A1168) from Berger’s Colour Catalogue to pay an ode to the cricket team.

For those cheering the Delhi team, you can pick an attractive shade of navy blue paired with red for the walls of your home.
