Home Decorating Ideas for This Diwali Season That You Cannot Afford To Miss
“I am going to make everything around me beautiful-that will be my life” -Elise De Wolfe. Are you a gypsy soul? Is this the same spirit with which you live your life? Is this the same hymn that you chant every day, every time when you feel low and just wish you had a magic wand to change things around you? Well you might not be able to change everything but can definitely start with your interiors! This year bohemian is the buzzword for home décor. It is not just the trend forecast that should make you pause and take notice but the spectacular range of experimentation that you can do with bohemian décor which is surely going to blow your mind!
Bohemian décor is all about letting your maximalist aesthetic side fly far and wide. A bohemian space is a fertile canvas to give wings to your ingenuity, carving a warm ambience and treads the clash of prints route. So here are some great ideas to render a snazzy makeover.
Pillows – For the guests, the living room is the window to your soul. Hence put in that extra effort to deck up the living room not just for others but also for yourself. A hammock installation heaped with kutch embroidered pillows and pillows with tassle detailing promise to add a personal touch to the otherwise cozy but impersonal hammock. Low-lying sofa set or chaise lounge or a mattress turned into a sofa spells smartness. Throw in an appliqué bedsheet with pompom accents and stack the naked bed with turmeric yellow and sunset orange pillows for a visual treat. As it is a must have been pellucid from my emphasis that pillows and cushions in warm tones are instrumental for the classic bohemian retreat.
Layering prints and textures – Smart layering is not just confined to dressing, but also an indispensable component for aiming that perfect bohemian décor. While clutter might be one of the impressions of boho vibes, trust me peeps it’s not! Being a maximalist trend you are allowed to bring in a plethora of accessories, say rugs, pillows, wall papers, quaint mirrors, dreamcatchers, beads, feathers, antique pieces, vintage furniture and potted plants, however ultimately the trick lies in mixing and matching apparently juxtaposed articles and weaving them into a singular theme.
Dhokra, terracotta and indoor plants – Apart from a colour burst of furniture and layering of rugs and cushions, showpieces in Dhokra and terracotta exude a congenial vibe and also provide a platform for you to showcase your impeccable taste. You can convert an old weathered coffee table and dress it up with a striking tablecloth contoured with mirrors and conches courtesy your DIY skills. Even henna tattoos emblazoned on the centre of the table can add a bold statement. Once the table is ready let the connoisseur in you take over and display your exclusive souvenir collection.
Wood – I feel wooden flooring and wooden armchairs set the mood for a gypsy soul. Chinese candle paper lantern, Moroccan lantern and fairy lights adorned with decorative climbers and creepers are some of the effective and easy ways that work against a wooden background.
Things to Remember:
1. Ensure that you do not repeat the pattern for your cushion cover as multiplicity is the key for bohemian aesthetics.
2. A DIY tapestry headboard adorned with fairy lights for the bedroom is pocket-friendly and at the same time instagram pretty!
3. If you have a vintage chair or a simple bamboo chair layer it up with a rug and round pillows in contrasting shades.
4. Creativity and a relaxed feeling is the ultimate assessment for your bohemian room décor, hence don’t shy away from experimenting!
5. Colourful accents and organic elements like ornamental fabrics and accessories must feature in your bohemian décor plan.
6. You can use sheer pastel linen as a covering for the canopy of your bed.
