Scandinavian

It’s a home décor theme about minimalism, simplicity and functionality where clutter-free space and natural light are always prioritised the most. In this video, light brown coloured furniture is used against complete white; neutral walls are also a good option. So, you can change the wallpaper with a pastel pallet and bring some drama to it with mustard, Fuschia and sea green shades. Then bring some colours the cushion covers and flower vases. Then add some indoor plants to the décor and use jute items and hanging shelves to decorate the pots. And don’t forget to keep the plants healthy. Light fixtures and cane chandeliers are an important part of this home décor theme. But you can also use some fairy lights instead of light fixtures. If you love DIY, then go for it.

Indian Classical

If you are a lover of bright and vibrant colours, then this theme is just for you. Here, we can use vibrant colours with modern furniture to give a classy and edgy look to our abode. Use neutral or earthy tones for the walls keeping an accent wall of bright colour. Now, it’s time to revamp those walls. Do you have a huge collection of sarees with patterns and block prints? Then take them out of the cupboard and frame them to hang on the walls. Film enthusiasts can bring some quirky posters of their favourite movies and hang them on the walls to bring that edgy look.

If you have any metal statue, then now it’s time to showcase that. You can also use your sarees or dupattas to create your curtains and blinds and use your metal jewellery as a curtain tie. Now, find an empty wall and create a beautiful mandala design on it to revamp the wall. Paint your shot glasses and mason jars in the same pattern to use them as part of the decoration. This is how you can embrace the boldness, beauty and warmth of Indian Classical theme décor.

Art Deco

The next theme is Art Deco. This theme is about opulence and boldness where furniture has rich warm tones with metallic accents and a shiny finish. Light wall colours are used to neutralise the high shine of the furniture. Geometric patterns and abstract shapes are the prime features of this theme. And bold colours with geometric patterns are used to give the ultimate Art Deco charm to the décor. Mirrors with a metallic finish, golden coloured items, DIY items with geometric patterns will always complete your Art Deco look.
