8 Home Décor Tips to Light Up Your Diwali

The smell, sounds, and sights of autumn in India set the mood of joy and festivities to come. There’s happiness and fervor in the air, with people arming up to the hilt with shopping bags, preparing for one of the grandest festivals of the year. It’s truly a wonderful time!

Now Diwali 2021 is almost upon us. This means now’s the chance to deck up your home for this very special occasion!

In this blog, we’re going to show you how you can get your home Diwali-ready with simple décor ideas that you can pull off with ease. Of course, they’ll be tasteful too! We guarantee, that after you’re done, you’ll love the way your home looks! Let’s get started.

1. Declutter and autumn clean your home

First and foremost on the Diwali home decoration ideas is cleaning. Break out that Mary Kondo book from the library and get decluttering. Cleaning out the unnecessary items will give you space to fill your home with new décor pieces. Besides, the festive season calls for a deep cleaning of your home so you can deck it up with the new. If you can’t handle all the stress of cleaning, you can always hire a professional cleaning service to get the job done.

2. Add more than a splash of color

The autumn festive season brings with it an array of jewel toned hues – from rich mahoganies to royal emeralds. Adding these shades to any room through furnishings will give your home a very festive vibe. Colorful cushions, bedsheets and curtains are a sure-shot way to get these hues into your house. However, we suggest restricting them to accents that are in-sync with the rest of your home. That way, the contrast won’t seem too unpleasant and stark, but rather harmonious.

3. Use lighting to creative a festive mood

The quintessential ‘festival of lights’, Diwali is incomplete without the sparkle of the season. 

The market is full of choices when it comes to decorative lights! So feel free to experiment here until you find what works for your home. You can drape pretty, warm yellow lights around your plants; fill them into mason jars and place them in corners or adorn your balconies and Puja room with them.

You can also decorate your home with diyas and earthen lamps to ring in the festivities the traditional way. Or give scented candles, neatly perched on ornate candle stands, a shot. That’s sure to lend your home with that warm festive glow.

4. Redo your floor décor

If every other part of your home is getting into the festive spirit, why skip the floor? Rangolis are an integral part of festive decoration. Signifiers of the positivity, happiness and spiritedness of a household, Rangolis are intended to bring good luck. Needless to say, they make for an impressive and beautiful festive décor. You can play around with them and use either natural colours or flowers to make yours with ready-made templates or DIY designs.

5. Throw in flowers everywhere

Nothing says the festivals are here like flowers do! Bring out the fancy vases and fill them with flowers to make your home instantly bright and cheerful. You can also place potpourri in beautiful bowls in the nooks & crannies of your home to enliven them & fill them with a beautiful lingering scent. Strings of marigold on your balconies will make your home festive in no time.

6. Give your entrance a festive makeover

Spruce up the entrance to your house to make your guests catch the festive bug too! One of the easiest Diwali decoration ideas for home is to embellish your doorway with a traditional Indian painting or framed silk pieces. Lighting up your foyer with candles and Diya’s will also do the trick.

7. Make it glitz and glam with velvets & silks

One of our favorite Diwali home décor ideas, velvets and silks really bring out that ‘special occasion’ vibe with their rich textures and luxe colors. After all, the festive season does call for a glamourous look – both for your wardrobe and for your home. You can add velvet cushions and silk upholstery to get into the festive mood.

8. Accent your home with the luster of metals

Bring in the golden glow and the silver shimmer with metallic accents. A brass candle stand or a figurine, silverware and other small decorative knick-knacks in metal serve as the perfect way to spruce up your home for the joy and fervor Diwali brings!
