Diwali Inspiration - 2 (Home Tour)

First thing, a big bear hug to all those who sent in their love, likes, comments and wishes for my blog birthday. Your wonderful feedback and encouragement works as a driving force for me. On a happier note, we crossed 1000+ on facebook passion page, thank you lovely peeps, I couldn’t have done it without you all :)
 

 
After a great response of my entrance, I am inviting you to come along as I share bits and pieces of my living room and family room decked up for Diwali.
Punchy colors and thoughtful accessories are foolproof formula to strike the perfect balance on the festive season. My mind is in an excitable state immersing in a creative journey with ah-mazing ups and downs all around home. It’s time of the year where I actually intent to crave for a compliment by impressing my guests.

Considering every surface an opportunity for creative display, I have clustered an array of similar objects together at differing heights. Here Ganesha being the foundation of the display, 3 of my favorite ones have taken a center stage on the coffee table being a strong luxurious statement through brass.


Flowers totally transform a room in the way a red bindi lifts the game of a saree. Use vivid red rose petals to bring a spark of color to a brass display. Shimmering warmth from glamorous lights of diya works beautiful with brass.
Cushions are the perfect way of ringing in the festive touches. Jewel toned cushions or mirror work cushions can easily add the extra bit of sparkle. Subtle texture of the cushions adds the overall richness in the room.
To add further interest and achieve more festive look,  try to epitomize punch of your style by illuminating the graceful allure of diyas and candles. 
Our proud collection of Ganesha is an all season long decoration. My décor evolves from time to time by changing my perspective and rearranging what I have had for years. If you are a regular visitor, you perhaps know things don’t stay the same for very long. Everything brass plays a part in an overall look of this vignette. Adding another frame here as a backdrop to flatter the style.
 
Another glowing display is with an undisputed festive star Ganesha. For a bolder statement, I deliberately swapped out earthy tones diyas instead of petite votive candle holders. 
  
There is no fence-sitting with red this season in my Family Room. Flaunt a unique take by pop of red to nod a traditional Diwali décor. 
For setting the tone of festival, the console table is taking a new avatar with medley of global décor. Purposeful placement warrants a look to bowl your guest out. For more traditional punch, I employed the kutchhi runner. The mass of roses blends beautifully here hitting all the right notes.

Small details can add magic and sprinkling of your personal touch. A cluster of brass diyas are repeated subtly on the coffee table for maximum drama. A pot housing red mums (an inherited piece) lends an added sparkle on the table. A Pooja plate with bells is successfully updated here as a tray to cover the complete vignette.


Putting on a play of lighting and swapping out accessories in every corner will greet you to beckon the festival. Lighten up the glow of Diwali by small bursts of twinkling diyas and overload of tinsel. Whether the home is fuelled by loving relatives, a few close friends or just you, enjoy the festivities.
Until we meet again, stay connected on Facebook, as up next will be this year's rangoli :) toodles.

    1. Thank you Shweta, all the brass décor is collected over the years. Few pieces are inherited, few are gifted and few are brought home from India.
