Come November and it is time for Diwali again…
A festival that is an ode to the Goddess of wealth and prosperity, Goddess Lakshmi and one that celebrates the victory of good over evil, Diwali is all about light overcoming darkness. A personal favourite, Diwali for me is all about warmth, cheer and positive vibes. As a run up to the festival, I enjoy creating bright spaces by decking up tables, nooks and corners with accessories like flowers, candles, vibrant furnishings, potpourri, lamps, rangolis and the like.
Given that this year has been exceptionally dark in the form of the global coronavirus pandemic, there could not be a more apt time than Diwali to banish the darkness from your home by giving it a sparkling make over. Bring on those festive décor artefacts and make your home reflect the joyful festive spirit that you can enjoy with family and friends. And you don’t have to break the bank to do it! Here are some exclusive picks you can choose from to deck up your abode on a budget this Diwali.
