Adding to the list of tips, Harshvardhan Ruia, Co-Founder of Villedomo, shared 5 ideas to make any place look better this festive weekend:
1. Make your corners appealing. You can simply keep them classy with decorative trays, some flowers and holders which match up with the home aesthetics. Even minimal furniture article and mood lighting also uplift dull corners.
2.With gloominess in the weather, your living space does not need to bear with the monsoon greys. A vibrant home space is perfect to amp up the mood in no time.
3. Turn up the brightness in your living room with a pop colored couch or may be a quirky ottoman to add uniqueness with color factor. Adding a patterned rug adds depth to the whole setting of the furniture. It will not only brighten up the living room but will definitely make your home revamped and give a fresh look to the area.
4. Rugs work as coordinates with the whole story line of home decor and home furnishings in personal or commercial spaces. Not only uplifting the aesthetics, but also adding colors to the desired spaces.
5.Rugs also add a special value in maintaining the room temperature. During Winters or monsoons, they have an insulation effect and provide warmth to our feet due to the natural fibers they are made of.
Other than these we can also look on to warm light, curved furniture and natural textures that can bring bright and vibrant summer into your spaces.
