Light up your world: Diwali is incomplete without lights, it is the purpose of the festival after all! Diyas, candles, fairy lights and more, the lighting options for Diwali are wide and varied. Let’s take a look at how you can transform your home with lights this Diwali!
#4 Diyas: By far the most traditional way to decorate your home come Diwali. There is nothing quite like the glow of a simple clay diya to transform your home. If you’re not comfortable with the constant supervision and refilling a diya requires, you can also use candles or tea-lights instead!
#5 Mason jar lights: Have a spare mason jar or clear glass jar? Put a string of fairy lights in them and see how they transform your entire room!
#6 Lanterns: Colourful paper lanterns are another wonderful way to add colour and light to your home even on a budget! Hang them from a wall or a doorway and see your space brighten immediately!
#7 Try something new with your fabrics: Adding lights and flowers to your home are just the beginning of your home decoration journey. Diwali is the perfect time to give your home a luxurious look with something totally new. Be it a silken throw on your couch, a mishmash of brightly coloured cushions to add a pop of vibrancy to the space or even switching your regular planters for festive coloured ones! Even a small change can totally change the way your home looks and give it the festive vibe you’ve been aiming for!
A few simple decor changes can ensure that this festive time can be spent in a space that filled with light, colour, fragrance and love.
