This festive season, with social distancing norms still being in place, we believe you wouldn’t be stepping out for parties or get-togethers. This means, all the celebrations will happen at home and most likely on video calls. So wouldn’t you want Instragammable interiors to serve as the backdrop? We hear you! We got in touch with Anuj Khanna, Director of Sava International Private Ltd, an international home furnishings brand that also owns Sana Furnishings, to tell us ways to give your home a festive makeover.
Add a personal touch to your space. Everyone has different preferences and enjoys different things, some may enjoy bright and bold colours, while others may like glitter and shimmer. “Personalised slogans, texts, unique colour combinations are the key this season for furnishings,” says Anuj. Choose what goes best with your taste and personality.
Bring on the flowers
Flowers in whatever shapes and size and colour can give your space an instant upgrade. Use them generously to jazz up a dull corner, add a pop of colour to your bedroom or put a floral centrepiece on your dining table to liven up the layout and conversations.
Fragrances can really lift up your mood and let you relax. Choose different fragrances for different rooms. Add something fresh and energising for the living room and something more soothing for the bedroom.
During the festive seasons, less is more and cluttered spaces can really block the good energy. Anuj suggests, you try to declutter the space by giving away things you haven’t used for long or feel don’t fit into your space.
Use curtains as accent pieces
“Various colors, shades, patterns, and textures can be used In your different rooms. They help in adding depth to a room,” says Anuj.
Use lights cleverly
Lights are essential to brighten up a room and add a festive vibe. Use lights or candles to spruce up dull corners. Anuj suggests adding LED strips on your curtains and cushions to add extra shine to your ambience and textiles.
Choose table linen carefully
Feasting is a big part of the festive season and the right table linen can make your food look appealing. Table linens add class and style to mealtimes—be it an elegant dinner, a formal lunch, teatime or breakfast, clean, crisp tablecloths, napkins and runners can make them special.
