The pandemic festivals have become more intimate and close-knit, embracing small spaces and promoting a homey atmosphere. In these celebrations, people embrace hygge lifestyles and minimalist themes to find joy in the simpler things in life. The new lifestyle does tend to miss the laughter-filled gatherings, the ring of the chorus of ceremonial songs, the exchange of wishes with loved ones, and other fanfare that is a part of the yearly celebration.
New And Old
This time of year’s festival must strike a balance between the new and old ways of celebration, with pretty nooks, Diya-lit doors, and aesthetically designed pooja rooms that stand out in person or serve as the backdrop during video calls with distant family.
Add Artisanal Touch To Your Decor
Festivities have their own aesthetic tone. The mandap, toran, etc. are sure to form a major portion of the décor. The secret lies in the details. The extravagance of the pooja demands that the kitchen be reorganized and the dining area was redone. Tablecloths in bright Indian hues will lay the carpet for the pure silver or brass ethnic tableware. Bringing in a traditional statement will be antique wood showpieces, traditional wall art, motif-patterned pillows, bright-hued upholstery, intricate handwoven carpets and more. Ikat and Shibori weaves, made from breathable cotton, silk, or wool, produce unique upholstery, curtains, carpets, and bed linen. The patterns show off textures and colors to the fullest extent.
Bring On Your Colour Game
For the living room, choose a sophisticated, indulgent palette with touches of mauve, beige, or a darker brown. Pasteurization in the neutrals tends to contemporize the décor, making it a good option for minimal pooja celebrations – powder blue, mint green or peach color schemes leave a trace of playfulness and relaxation in the minimalist spaces. Blue and red, combined with tonal shades such as lime and tangerine, look fierce. Blush, teal, and lilac create a soothing yet sophisticated ambiance. Forest inspired colors and motifs in the wall finishes further enhance the feeling of freshness. Incorporating conversational furniture, vibrant décor, and a lavish selection of luminaries, the space is set in a festive mood.
Don’t Forget Sanitising Points And Socially-Distanced Seats
As a result of the pandemic, the modern setup is incomplete without sanitising points and socially distant seats. With virtual celebrations, the numbered guests can be part of a thoughtful celebration with the same love and affection as always. Celebrations of the pandemic are only a reminder of the kindness and gratitude that long for a festival that is safe and undisturbed.
Not Just You, Your Home Needs Accessorising Too
This festive season can be a celebration of our individualistic dreams and personalities, expressed through an experiential interior aesthetic. A play of minimal maximalism adds a raw and intimate textural feel to the décor. Imaginative furniture forms with statement accessories, chic coffee tables, lively indoor planters and metallic cushions in copper and gold add a touch of glamour and snugness to the room.
Show Some Flower Power
Consider a backdrop that blends with the color theme of the home-try lattice screens, carved wooden jalis, or embossed frames. Place the brassware on a large plate adorned with fresh flowers. Tone down the colour game with the greenery when the florals become overpowering-there are vines, foliage, and other contemporary elements that add a hint of ethereal beauty to the interior.
Make Room For Fragrances
Exotic scents — incense sticks in sandalwood, jasmine, or other fragrances, along with fresh flowers, create an opulent atmosphere. The enchanting atmosphere of the festivities is enhanced by the use of statement lighting, floor lamps, and diffused lighting. Fresh flowers, aroma diffusers, rules, and fragrant candles enhance the ambiance by adding a pleasing aroma to the home.
Add A Touch of You Handcrafted Décor Items
Experimental decorative choices such as handcrafted pieces and minimal origami details draw the fine line between traditional and modern choices. Finely-set orchestrated elements like in artisanal items, inlaid with semi-precious stones, enhance the opulence. Everything that is aureate and glistening has a special place in my heart. The aesthetic of a contemporary festive setup is completed by an unmissable layer of diyas, bells, or flowers surrounded by a striking arch frame or modest wooden alcoves.
Don’t Forget To Celebrate Yourself.
An experiential interior aesthetic can express our individualistic dreams and personalities during this festive season. Innovative furniture and accessories in eco-conscious elements such as wood, stone, ceramics, and metallics, like coffee tables and planters, add elegance and festive warmth to any room. A lasting statement comes from a more conscious choice in the décor, which goes beyond visual appeal.
