2. Stage your Entrance and make it look Worthy
You don’t need to go out and buy new furniture or furnishings just for Diwali décor; instead, seek patterns around you and create a festive atmosphere right through your front door. Simply combine or mix and match old vibrant dupattas or whatever ethnic accessories you already have to veil your entryway.
To fit the spaces & echo tradition, bring out the great works of embroidery, block printing, and fabrics going along with the theme of your interiors. Also, recreate the aesthetics of your entrance by placing large earthen pots or urli bowls filled with water, and sprinkling fragrant petals over it. Add floating candles along or place a simple palm leaves planter to add an edge and finishing to your decoration.
3. Spruce up your Balconies and Attract the Goodness of Nature
With Diwali season comes a cooler climate, which means better weather to hang out or host gatherings. From gardens & patios in bungalows to balconies in independent houses, the outdoors work as the perfect canvas for any Diwali decoration. The basic idea is to incorporate as many lighting accessories as possible.
For the garden or balconies, strings of fairy lights hung across walls or around plants or trees look magical at night. Also, something as straightforward as changing your floor covering can have a colossal effect. You can also opt for dhurries with traditional motifs. This will create contrasts and also help provide some comfy seating for the gatherings.

4. Craft & Style the Edges of your simple looking Mirrors
Mirrors have always piqued my interest. They assist you in putting together a look and creating a sense of illusion in space. From blank walls to the typical edges of mirrors, there’s plenty of room to experiment, emphasise, and create a statement. Create borders with brilliant sunflowers and a sunburst-style frame to make a dramatic statement.
Alternatively, simply lay one of the fringe curtain panels flat on your mirror surface and smooth out the strings to give your otherwise frameless mirror a Boho stylish and permanent aesthetic solution. Old ropes, macrame frames, or even a smooth rug base can be used as a base for your mirror. Don’t forget about the lighting; a brightening mirror can make you feel nice and gleaming.
5. Your Puja Room needs special attention.
Your pooja room is essentially the centre of all the activity during the holy festivities and needs special attention at this point. Whether it’s an elaborate, compact or wall-mounted space for your Mandir, there are plenty of options to make it an impactful space. A Mandir with a divine jhala work can spruce up with some extra lighting and garlands at the backdrop. Get some antique brass finish lamps and place them around the pedestal.
Also, do not forget to decorate it with fresh flowers and diyas on all the days leading to Diwali, it looks elegant and also considered auspicious. Pendant lamps, hanging diyas and brass finish bells are a few elements that could help beautify your wall-mounted Mandir and give effortless looks. Rangoli, either with colours or flowers, is an age-old custom to deck up a home with myriad hues during Diwali. It looks great at the base of the idol in the Pooja house.
This Diwali, make your home a paradise of positive energy, love & laughter. Transform your home with these simple Diwali decoration ideas, add details and make it eventful. Wishing you all a joyful & safe Diwali.
