Colour It Right
The right hues can uplift any space and highlight the right elements in the best way possible. We asked the experts the trending colours for the festive season. Baweja recommends, “For Indian festivals, I love picking colors from our traditions like the red gulaal as deep red creates a mesmerising vibe.
My favourite colour this season is burnt orange which makes a statement in Indian rituals—the holy fire of havans, the marigold flowers for puja decorations, the linen used in shrines—choose this colour to inject brightness and cheer into your interiors.”
“Mustard, vermillion, royal blue and purple are the colours that will most certainly add spark to the space,” says Khosla. “Mix and match bright and bold colours and include them as visually-pleasing highlight elements in your décor, such as cushion covers, decorative accessories, and wall décor,” opines Singh.
While Agrawal suggests an eco-friendly yet luxurious Diwali celebration with a monochromatic colour scheme enhanced with contrasting décor products to create a festive vibe, Zachariah recommends wallpapers to perk up your space. “Incorporating some distinct and tasteful wall art and prints can help you stay inspired through the year. Finally, add decorative LED lights to brighten up the evenings.” Since festivities involve entertaining and hosting, Khosla advises investing in good crockery, cutlery and tableware. “Add a traditional touch with brass lamps and urlis to make your space more beautiful.”
