Holi is a big Indian festival. Transcending the boundaries of culture and religion, every year Holi unites us with our family and friends and enables us to celebrate the joys of life with full fervor. Also, Holi marks the end of winters and the beginning of spring, a reason to rejoice in its own regard for our agrarian society. As it is during all our festivals, we decorate our homes and make them a part of our celebrations too.
Below are a few tips on decorating your home this time in the colorful festival of Holi:
Embellish your Walls
This Holi, do not wait for that time of the year when you get your home painted and instead go DIY (Do it yourself!) right now by drenching your home’s walls in exuberant colors. Not only that, this time you can also try color-blocking your home’s walls by choosing two colors and painting the wall with them in a pre-decided unique pattern to give the wall an innovative mix. Moreover, the walls can also be decorated with wall-hangings, paintings, floral wall papers, framed pictures and fashioned patterns to elevate their festive factor up by quite a few notches.
Renovate your Drawing room
You can use colorful paper decorations, innovative lighting, enchanting rugs, crystal bowls with flower petals, aromatic candles, color-dappled curtains and hangings, intriguing hand painted posters, bright flower-vases, lively rugs and flower bouquets to turn your living space to a Holi central hub. Also, you can dress-up your lamps, sofas and cushions and other upholstery in vivid draping to give your drawing room a complete makeover.
Color your Outdoors
Places such as lawns, patios and terraces are where Holi is played; this calls for vivid decorations in these areas too. Colorful paper buntings and festoons, flowers, artworks, water balloons and an intricate flowery Rangoli can bejewel a home’s courtyards, balconies, railings of staircases and door entrances to take your Holi fun to a higher horizon. On Holi eve, you can also decorate these outdoor places with ornamented diyas, lanterns and perky lights along with logs of firewood to burn at Holika Dahan.
Cook up an Enchanting Kitchen
One of Holi’s major highlights is its sumptuous dishes and thus the kitchen, where it is all done, shouldn’t be given a miss when decorating for the festival. You may place a pretty Rangoli on the kitchen’s entrance or fix colorful paper designs on its lighting fixtures or on the ceiling. Also, you can serve the food and drinks in innovative dressings of colorful dishes to enhance the food’s visual appeal and increase the appetite of your guests.
Make the Bedroom Gorgeous
Aromatic candles, captivating flowers, cheery illumination alongside vibrant bedsheets and striking pillows and cushions should wake your bedroom to the pulsating festival of Holi; do not miss this chance to liven up your bedroom!
Renew your Bathroom
Fill color in the dull toiletries and furnishings of your bathroom. Go ahead, change the bathroom curtain to a colorful one, get multi-colored and scented soaps, place delightful flower vases at windows and replace grey towels with colorful ones so as to rejuvenate and replenish your bathroom this Holi.
While you are splurging every nook of your beautiful home in the energizing colors of Holi, please also remember to reposition or cover your furniture and upholstery pieces which can be spoiled by color. Also, remember to use only synthetic and washable fabrics as covers to get rid of the intentional and unintentional splashes of color around the home. Also, avoid chemical colors as they are dangerous to your eyes and skin and do not leave flower petals on floors as they leave a difficult stain.
And lastly, do remember to enjoy the festival of Holi to the fullest so that after playing with colors, you look as charismatic as your decorated home.
