Lighten up your home

Post - - Lifestyle -

ECORATE your home with am­ple lights, be it in the form of lamps or chan­de­liers, and in­tro­duce a few planters with fresh flow­ers to the sad and empty cor­ners of your home to bring in pos­i­tive vibes and tran­quil­lity, sug­gest ex­perts.

Retesh Sharma, the di­rec­tor at Zynna, and Sukriti Sharma, the di­rec­tor at Plusch, list creative dé­cor ideas.

Fetch green­ery in­side: Adding planters with loads of fresh flow­ers and green plants cre­ate a serene mi­lieu.

Light the area right: Lights play a key role in set­ting the am­biance right. Adding a few chan­de­liers and lamps will cre­ate a beau­ti­ful, serene room. Also, in­cor­po­rat­ing a few scented can­dles in your rooms is yet another great idea that not only spreads the aroma around but also gen­er­ates a lov­ing, car­ing at­mos­phere.

When we talk about bring­ing spring botan­i­cals into your abode, the best way to achieve this is in cush­ions. Na­ture-in­spired cur­tains also work well. You can con­trast them with neon colours.

Adding flo­ral de­signs, na­ture up­hol­stery pieces with con­trast­ing rugs can also work well. Also, wa­ter­colour-style flower-print fab­ric can be in­cor­po­rated such as a foot­stool or cush­ions.

Small dec­o­ra­tive pieces, fruit bowls, dec­o­ra­tive or­na­ments and mag­a­zine bas­kets en­hance the look of the liv­ing room, hence they play a vi­tal role in bring­ing any themed dé­cor into the house. You can add photo frames, bam­boo dé­cor prod­ucts and smaller ob­jects such as coast­ers, dec­o­ra­tive trays and room dif­fusers.

Many a time we see that only one sin­gle colour wall is the fo­cal point in any room. This trend is passé. In­stead use printed wall­pa­pers to brighten any space in your house whether it is a bed­room, liv­ing area, din­ing room or bal­cony.

In­fuse light scented can­dles that not only cre­ate an aro­matic room but also a nice am­bi­ence. Fur­ther­more, you can set a re­lax­ing mood by ar­rang­ing a va­ri­ety of oil lamps and can­dles on dec­o­ra­tive trays and let them work their magic on your senses.

Adorn your in­te­ri­ors with brighter shades of yel­low, orange, red, blue and green. Opt for the colours that com­ple­ment each other and pro­vide an ex­u­ber­ant aura to your home. Use flo­ral prints as dé­cor in your home to keep your home lively, cheer­ful and fresh. Keep aside the heavy drapes and wel­come sheer or pel­lu­cid cur­tains into your homes. – IANS
