The festive season is round the corner and with so many festivals, guests and occasions, it can be hard to keep up with your annual wishlist for the festive season. But while you give your wardrobe a festive makeover, don’t forget your home makeover either! Embrace the season by giving your home an interior decoration makeover not just for the festive season but for the year ahead with some long-awaited home decor items. Interior decoration is all about making the most out of the space you have rather than investing in fancy things with little functionality. Here’s our guide on how to bring the festive season to your home in all its colours to prep for the multiple occasions and dinner parties coming up to host again!
Live in Festive Vibes
Your living room is going to be the centre of attraction for entertaining guests and hosting all those intimate festive gatherings so bring in some ethnic vibes with our home decor picks. These subtle gold and beige curtains are a warm, neutral pick without being drab and provide a base for more pop, vibrant colours such as red, embellished throw cushions . Even your furniture such as this pink foot stool can add an interesting look to the room, especially when the pink and red contrast is a hot one this season! For the living room, a table lamp is a must-have modern day decor essential and we love this pretty, rose gold one that’s so chic. Keep the room smelling fresh with a reed diffuser with a rich, oudh fragrance (?).
It’s the one place you spend most of your time so better make the most of the festive season to give it an upgrade. With interior decoration and small room decor, you can make even a smaller space look great and something as simple as bedsheets can make a huge difference. A set of deep red, solid bed sheets can bring in so much life and colour to a room and these antibacterial bed sheets are just what you need to make the bedroom fresh and vibrant. Complete the bed spread with a double bed textured comforter in a complimenting colour tone. Wall decor is a small home decor item that can make a huge difference and an adjustable wall shelf is a contemporary piece of design you can use to display your memorable photos and even artificial flowers ! A wooden basket is an extremely functional addition to your bedroom that brings in a rustic vibe and is super useful for organising books, bedside essentials and knick knacks. To bring in some earthy tones, a soft brown bath mat can be another neutral accent against the bright bed sheets.
The Mini Spiritual Retreat
As you redecorate the rest of the house for the festivities, the puja room is one where you can really bring out the festive flair with metallic tones. Instead of the usual colourful idols, go for this brass finish set of Laxmi, Saraswati and Ganesha idols that bring in a rooted element. Natural incense sticks will set the ambience for festivities, bringing back the smells of celebrations from our childhood and a brass embossed bell is an eclectic take on a traditional puja item. Lastly, it’s the season for lights and these tea light candles will make sure your house has a constant glow, while being extremely easy to use.
Dinner Parties for Days
If it’s one thing the festive season brings in all its glory, it’s dinner parties on every weekend and even some weekdays. So it’s essential to have your dining space looking elegant, chic and warm. This hot pink and gold foil lotus print table runner can easily transform any dinner table and even though it’s bright and festive, can continue to be a statement long after the celebrations are over. Complement the gold in the mat with this neutral brown set of table mats and a white dinner set with some pretty blue detailing. A high quality cutlery set makes a huge difference to your guests’ dining experience and to elevate it a step further, serve all your homemade sweets and delicacies in this bamboo fiber tray with a watercolour design. Light some candles and add a flower vase to complete your dinner table setup as the family gathers together to enjoy a festive meal.
The Masterchef Space
Even if you’re not a masterchef, the right kitchen appliances can help you become one, just in time for cooking up those season delicacies. But before you start cooking, make sure you’re safeguarding your home with this anti-bacterial oven that disinfects everything you bring into your house. An elegant yet sturdy casserole set is great for cooking and serving food in and adds a contemporary touch to complement your modular kitchen.

The festive season is perhaps the only time we really get to spend with our close families and friends and one that is meant for being spent in the warm comfort of home. So it only makes sense to use it to give your home some love and decorate it to your heart’s content, just in time for when the guests arrive!
