Get Festive! For September 2015

As we gear up for the arrival of the Indian festive season, we thought it's only fair to share some real useful tips to make your home celebration ready. Whether it is Raksha Bandhan or Ganesh Chathurti, these tips will help you with ideas that you can implement with ease and are stylish at the same time. Give your home a traditional twist by incorporating some of the season's hottest trends like kansa tins, table settings, wall décor and quirky cushions, interesting lighting and much more.

  1. Raksha Bandhan: The special bond between brothers and sisters has a special nostalgia attached to it. Step back in time to celebrate this amazing bond by getting your childhood pics framed on the walls. And yes, don't forget the cheerful fairy lights. Decorate these around the frames for a special focus and glow. Also, if you are looking for a festive makeover, choose bright wall colours like yellow and orange for the living room. The brightness just adds to the festive spirit and plays as a perfect backdrop setting for all the fun moments. Apart from this, some small elements like fresh flowers around the house add a special glee. They make homes come alive; choose from roses, orchids or simple marigold. Go for bouquets and place them in metal pots for a more ethnic look. Place some beautiful candles around these pots and just like that you turn into a decorating diva!

  2. Ganesh Chathurti: Whether the elephant God bestows your abode or no, festivities are in the air. Let these positive vibes enter your lives through your home. Fresh fragrant candles and traditional silk cushion covers are some of the ways. Beautiful table settings with brassware can be arranged with interesting flower arrangements. You can also put together books and pile them up, place a little bowl of roses on them and tah-dah you have a stylist corner ready! Make sure every corner either has fresh flowers or candles. Set up colourful dessert display with diyas all around. And for the Ganesha idols, you can create traditional rangoli with flowers or colours and lights to brighten up the space.

    Go all out with bright colours, traditional design elements and bright lights. This autumn, welcome home the goodness and festivities of the season. Let your lives be full of positivity, hope and prosperity. Enjoy the sweetness of the festivities and have fun!
