To find out how, follow these festive décor trend predictions along with a few tips on how to style it yourself at home (without denting your wallet too much).
Go for Gold
Make an eye-catching décor statement with gold: this festive season, update the stainless steel pulls and knobs on your white side table with brass handles for a modern style with a Victorian flair or Go for gold tables to add a glamorous touch to your room.
Add a Rug
Naturally, your living room will be the area that you entertain the most in. This is the biggest room in the house, so when we have friends over, we end up congregating here. When in doubt, add a decorative rug. We love how they can transform a space, making it more inviting.
Candles and more Candles
As for coffee table décor, keep it simple by focusing on one thing: Candles and more candles! They have a way of making a space feel cozy with their ambient glow and welcoming scents.
Cart to Bar
Bar carts are extremely functional for entertaining guests and look festive with brightly colored glassware and treats. Ease and accessibility are also important, having a stocked bar cart is essential. Use it to serve your guest delicious treats and drinks.
Rangoli is often considered as one of the most beautiful and popular décor ideas for Diwali. This Diwali take a stab at something other than what’s expected with Rangoli. Rather than using just colors use flowers and take a stab at making it in the corner of the room. This would add a gorgeous look to the space.
Vases for Festival
To create soft, flickering light for a mantel or a table in a dark corner, group colorful glass vases of different sizes, add tea lights, and enjoy the glow.
