Take pride in the diversity of our Indian culture by adding traditional elements to bring out the true meaning of Diwali… 1. Auspicious silver: Want to add a subtle yet extremely sophisticated statement, this Diwali? Try silver serving pieces such as tureens, tea and coffee sets, bring out the candlesticks or better still, silver-plated base metals which will give your space an instant classy touch. Flaunt it this auspicious festive season and bask in the rich feel of affluence… |
2. Spruce up your entrance: Do up your entrance – If your crowd’s the traditional kind, use a beautiful toran and rangoli combination to welcome the guests. If not, then welcome them with an unusual bang. Place two black or red pots on either side of your front door and fill them with your favourite flowers. Add a dash of perfume to them. Your guests will be floored!
3. Flaunt your Indian-ness: Staying tuned in to our Indian roots adds a distinctive flavour and individuality to our global mindset and avant-garde homes during the festive season... Go on a shopping spree and pick up a beautiful selection of terracotta and brass diyas. Use good old earthenware pots and plates. Serve your guests in steel or better still, go green - buy some leaf plates and cups. Flaunt a small Tulsi plant. You are bound to feel the traditional flavour of the festival.
4. Accessorise: Accessorising is an all-important part of your décor and especially with the festive fervor around the corner. Take a large urli or a large glass bowl and fill it with water and marigolds or even rose petals and candles. Placed at the entrance, this is the warmest welcome you could essay for your guests.
5. Talking point: Stainless steel is one versatile material that offers timeless design. The contemporary designs available make it sleek yet stunning. Try buying a slender vase or artefact and see the conversations begin! check out the visuals on indiaartndesign.com
