Home Décor Tips

We all know that decorating your homes can be an enjoyable yet a very daunting task. With endless options available in the market, revamping your house can really take a toll on your mind as well as your pocket. So in this blog we will be sharing some simple decorating tips to help you create a home you’ll love.

  1. Create a chic display – do you have a collection of something? Tea cups, vases, paintings? Instead of scattering them throughout your home, make an impact by displaying them together. Tip: Avoid a uniform look and go for varying heights. We are sure these wood art frames will perfectly fit your home display
  2. Use fairy lights – Colored lights aren’t just for Diwali or Christmas. Display of ball lights strung around a set of white painted ladders or a open closet is the perfect way to illuminate a corner of a living room, bedroom or kids’ room. You can buy these fairy lights from The Bombay Store.
  3. Clash colors – Blue and green should never be seen, as the old saying goes. But two strong colors can live in hue harmony; the trick is to incorporate different shades of both colors throughout the room. Accessories like the rug, the vase and the art on the wall can be a part of this theme.
  4. Figurines Add Elegance – Any eye-catching sculpture or figurine will definitely make a statement as well as a conversation piece.
