Each festival has a story to tell, with an array of colourful decorations, from sparkling lights to fragrant flowers, to the soft glow of candles on Diwali, the lush greenery of Christmas trees, or the vibrant hues of Navratri, our homes come alive, radiating warmth and happiness.
With every festival the decor theme changes and maintaining a balance is important. Remember that achieving balance doesn’t mean using each colour equally; it means creating a visually pleasing and harmonious environment. By carefully selecting where and how you use each colour, create a balanced and festive atmosphere in your home during the Navratri festival.
You don’t need to overwhelm your space with all the colours at once. Choose a few key elements or accents in each colour to create a harmonious and festive ambience in your home during Navratri.
1. Use a Neutral Base: Start with a neutral colour scheme as a backdrop. You can use white or cream for walls, furniture, or large decor items. This will provide a calming foundation and allow the Navratri colours to pop.
2. Focus on one or two dominant colours: Choose one or two of the Navratri colours to be the dominant ones in your decor. These colours can be more prominent in larger items like curtains, rugs, or furniture upholstery. Go for bright red curtains in your living room. Red pairs well with neutrals like white, beige, grey, or black, but it can also work with certain shades of green, blue, or gold, depending on the specific hues. Poppy Flower Scarlet Fabric can be used for curtains and blinds, sofas and chairs, cushions or bed linen that can add a pop look to your living room.
3. Accent with other colours: Use the remaining Navratri colours as accents. They can appear in smaller decorative items like cushions, vases, candles, or artwork. Distribute these accents evenly throughout your space to create visual harmony. Magenta Biome Mystique Scented Candle Votive can add that warmth and serenity to your space.
4. Create balance through symmetry: If possible, arrange your furniture and decor items symmetrically, which can create a sense of balance and order. Choose decor items such as throw pillows, vases, or lampshades that feature dark colours like navy blue, and white patterns. You can choose from various colour combinations like Monochromatic colour schemes, Warm and cool tones, and Rustic and earthy tones. Blooms & Swans Cushion Cover Set comes with a dark colour and patterns to brighten up any space at your home.
5. Incorporate Metallics: Gold or silver accents can complement the Navratri colours and add a touch of luxury. You can use metallic picture frames, mirrors, or candle holders to achieve this. Floret Delight Wall Mirror can be used on walls that can add a touch of royalty.
6. Layer textures: Introduce different textures to your decor to add depth and interest. For example, you can have Regal Magnificence Embroidered Cushion Cover, Aqua Clover’s Knotty Play woven rugs, or Regal Fluorescence Canvas Wall Art that incorporates Navratri colours. Textures help break up the visual intensity of the colours.
7. Rotate decor: Since Navratri spans nine days, consider rotating your decor items to match the daily colours. This can help maintain a fresh and balanced look throughout the festival
