Heres Another Reason To Decorate Your Home
The season of festivals has arrived and it is the best time and reason to decorate your home. Find out the various imaginative ways to create the contemporary look that will enhance the beauty of your home.
How to get the western look
Resist the temptation of having a perfectly matched table. Dont be afraid of unusual combinations like wood and ceramic (as we have done), as long as they share a similar colour palette.

Mix expensive pieces with bazaar finds to create a unique and individualistic table that does not look like it has been taken straight from a magazine. For instance, combining luxurious crockery from Rosenthal with shiny floral tea light holders from Crawford Market add a different touch to the table.

Incorporate natural elements by either scattering flower petals across the table or using leaves of different sizes under a serving bowl or plate.

Use lots of candle-stands and candles to create the mood. Try and use more candle-stands so that you can throw away the tea lights and keep reusing them.

Even with a western setting, retain Indian touches in the linens used.

Revamp old things by spicing them up cleverly. For example, instead of buying a new set of placemats and runners, you could try cutting up old brocade dupattas and using 2-3 of them horizontally across the table. You could also break up necklaces that you no longer wear and string the stray beads on pretty cords to transform them into napkin rings.

Dont mix too many colours. Decide on one primary color and then work things around that.

Dont over-decorate. At Diwali it is easy to get carried away with your many purchases.
