Home Makeover for farewell of the year 2013!

Hi everyone, December is considered as the month of festivities; the most beautiful time of the year. So why not make it more special? All of us find comfort at home when we return from the torturous life at offices and other work places, right? 

So, we occasionally need to turn our home into a more welcoming and cosy place. So, let's see if we can just use some lights and colors to renovate and add life to our already beautiful homes.

If nothing else, it will give a delightful ambiance to our homes and maybe attract some positive vibes.

1) Add lights and colors to your front door - A famous saying goes like 'First impression is the last impression'. Door is the first thing noticed by the visitors. Tying few colorful ribbons or flowers will serve as a good impression. Twinkling lights add a soft glow at night and allow the door and decor to be seen from the street.

2) Lanterns - Arrange a grouping of festive lanterns at your entryway, near windows, for a quick-and-easy decor. Consider using flameless candles as a worry-free alternative to regular lanterns. This will give a cozy ambiance to your home instantly.

3) Decorate pendant lights - Dress up pendant lights in a kitchen with a garland of flowers. This kitchen allows plenty of room for entertainment.

4) Use chandeliers - In the living room, chandeliers is a must.

5) Use diyas and candles - The best decor is to use aromatic candles in the lobby area and alternatively keep floating diyas in bowls for a rich exotic look and feel.

6) Add 'Wow Element' with a disco ball - Hang a disco ball from the ceiling to float above the dining table. The bow (used for tying the disco ball), with its long ribbon tendrils, adds the real wow factor.

7) Don't forget the staircase - On the staircase, use wax diyas and alternatively you can use silver/gold lights to drape like a garland up the handrail of a staircase, it will add to the welcome aura in the foyer.

8) Wrap up the left pillars and columns - Play up the architecture of your home by accentuating features, like the stately columns flanking a front porch, with spiraling garland and bright twinkling lights.

I hope these handy-tips help in making your homes look perfect for the festive season and also add cheer and positive vibes. Happy decorations!!!
