Diwali is just around the corner. You can feel the nip in the air, the excitement that follows the festive season, a bit of guilt-free binge eating and for a house proud person, the task to get your home in order.
According to Indian traditions, Lakshmi and Ganesh are worshipped during Diwali and bring with them wealth and happiness. So how can we spruce things up and welcome them? Besides cleaning up every nook and corner of the house, there are a few essentials that we think must be part of every Diwali celebration.
You need a mat that will make a ‘cracker’ of a statement. When your guests walk through the door, your doormat should speak volumes. Investing in an eco-friendly coir mat is a great option. You can check out the Skyy doormats – the Palms Mat or the Lottie Mat or a simple Home Sweet Home Mat are some great options for you to add to your entrance. By the way, they also make excellent Diwali gifts as well.
Diwali is about family time, having fun with friends and decorating your home. You will have people over to celebrate the festival and doing up with your table is a great way of making a statement and making things pretty. A colourful bold runner paired with jute mats, matching table napkins and a smashing centrepiece is just what your party needs. We suggest putting the Amer runner, the Freya Table Mat in yellow and simple Keann napkins. Place a floral piece in the middle and you are set!
The bedroom is that part of the house where positive energy should reside since that’s where you get your R&R, especially if you have been pulling all-nighters playing cards during the Diwali season. We have just added some beautiful bedroom linen to our collection. You have a variety of colours to choose from in different materials. The one thing that is uniform is the superior cloth quality we are fanatical about. So you can choose from the Minerva quilted bedspread or the Sky clover Quilt set or find something else that suits your taste – you have many more options. Choose one that reflects your mood and your style in the bedroom.
With the festivities and winter arriving bright coloured cushions are a must-have to add that extra touch to your room. Change your cushions to rich, vibrant colours that go well with the rest of your décor. Our recommendations would be the Rang and Amer cushion covers if you have a grey sofa. Or opt for eye-popping colours like our Bukara and Seran cushions. The cushions look gorgeous paired with a beige/cream sofa. Besides these we have tons of options in every colour.

Now these jute baskets are really gorgeous. They are handcrafted, eco-friendly and make beautiful additions in any room. You can use them as planters, as toy organizers for the kids bedroom or as storage baskets for other things around the house. Add them to any corner and declutter your space. Decluttering is the first step to cleanng your home and adding positive vibes. The baskets come in different combinations and we are sure you are going to love them!
