  • Let your heirloom of traditional and intricately-designed legacy of jewels inspire you. Ornamented with brocade, jewels and gold embroidery – furnishings and accessories can cater to every whim and lend character to your space.
  • Think of sparkling highlights, ethnic designs, fabrics and combinations of cushions, and you have yourself a stunner in the living room. Bring in glittering glass votives for a splash of vibrant colours that mark the onset of festivities.
  • Another option is to work around a theme. You can team up accessories and art pieces in shades of orange, red, purple, turquoise, royal blue to create a Moroccan melody.

Traditional Notes

  • Go traditional and get inspired by the textiles and art of yesteryears. Everything from your bedroom to the dining room can be done in rich vibrant hues because it is more festive and merry.
  • Go for an intricate and heavy-detailed, stitch-embroidery in damask like pattern for a regal look. Finish the setup with greens, string lights, flowers and a mulberry silk quilt all adding up to the celebrations ahead.
  • The many gatherings, festive decor and auspicious hues, is what this season is all about. Like all other areas in your house, select beddings, for your bedroom, that have exquisite handwork, and also project elegance at the same time.

Mix and Match

  • Fresh marigold flowers and twinkling diyas or shining candelabras — mix and match and create your own look. The interplay of beautiful textiles and auspicious colours in beautiful vibrant reds and delicate florals is what takes precedence. Work with glass baubles to hang candles or use floral throw pillows to freshen up the seating area.
  • Bring all things bright and beautiful to your home to celebrate with family and friends. Use furniture, accessories and art pieces that exude a sense of opulence, grandeur and reflects your personal lifestyle too.

Be the Entertainer

  • ‘tis the season when people come together, friends meet and there is a lot of entertaining and hosting. This is perhaps the time of the year when abodes are spotless and decked up with beautiful trinkets. The idea is to create a beautifully layered mix of textures and colours that warm up the home or any corner, making it cosier.
  • While entertaining guests, it is very important that the products should come together to create the perfect table ensemble.
  • For me, it is important that my guests have the best of the best. Hence, everything from the rich organza table napkins to the curated flower napkin rings speak the festive language.

  • I like to use the outdoor space for entertaining. Dress up the space with antique jamawars cushions, antique candelabras, flowers, festive sweets and tea — to create a joyous haven for family and friends.
  • Lights, candles and traditional diyas look nice when placed in a row if the area is large. Levels work very well in a smaller, compact area. You can mix different candlestands or create levels using other props.
