If there’s one festival in India that’s colourful, vivid, and vibrant, it’s definitely Holi! A splash of colour here, a burst of water balloon there, screams of joy everywhere – the spirit of Holi is literally infectious!

Every festival signifies something and Holi is a festival of colours. Originally celebrated by Hindus to mark the transition into the spring season, it has become a global event, celebrated and enjoyed by all!
The festival of Holi perfectly demonstrates India’s incredibly flamboyant culture. What started as a ritual by married women for their family’s happiness thousands of years ago is now a full-blown colour carnival biding adieu to winter and welcoming spring. The mythological episode of Vishnu devotee Prahlad coming unharmed out of the fire that burnt the wicked Holika propagates the usual message of good’s triumph over evil through the festivity. Though, it was Lord Krishna’s playful act of applying colours to his beloved Radha and her companions that continues to be the heart of Holi celebrations even today.
With Holi just around the corner, along with stocking up on tons of colours, water balloons and paints, it is also the perfect time for us to introduce some colour into our home. We think it would be great to give you some vibrant decoration ideas in keeping with the festivities to spruce up and add a colourful zing to your living space for the rest of the year.
