A Festive Makeover!

It’s that time of the year again! Diwali is one of the most vibrant festivals in our country. People look forward to celebrating it with great zeal and enthusiasm. Eventually, this excitement translates into enhancing your homes and décor as well! We all like to add some sparkle to our lives with fun colour combinations and playful patterns. With hectic schedules and busy lifestyles people often do not have the time to indulge in the festival. Since the festive season is upon us, here are a few simple and hassle-free tips on how to create a welcoming and comfortable festive aura! Rejoice and celebrate the season by revamping and adorning your homes with new and fresh décor elements.

There are several ways to jazz up your surroundings and to create a lively, festive vibe at your home - using scented candles, adding a pop of colour to your walls, creating statement floors, using cushion covers and bedsheets with traditional patterns and so much more!

Here are few home décor ideas that will liven up your space!

Light it up

Diwali is a festival that is all about lights and bling. So always opt for something fun and playful to dazzle up your space. Add a twist to your regular wall lamp hanging with some funky lanterns in different shapes, sizes and colours. They add a traditional touch to your festive home décor. Create a soothing vibe by adding warm or yellow lights inside your lamp. This creates a perfect festive ambience.

Lighting is an important aspect of interior design as it enhances aesthetic appeal and creates the mood and ambience of a living space. It can make or break the ambience of a room. Hence proper lighting is an important element when decorating your homes. Other lighting elements that add to the beauty of your space are - diyas, fairy lights and candle holders. You can decorate your window space and the entrance to your home with these pretty lights to create a warm and welcoming vibe.

Dress up your walls

Take your festive decor to the next level by adding a touch of quirkiness and vibrancy to your plain walls. Make one wall in the room stand out! If you do not want to change the wall to something bright, you can always experiment with bold prints and unique designs. Opt for wall tiles or wallpapers with traditional motifs and patterns.

Add a touch of glamour to your walls with Asian Paints’ new designer wallpaper range – Royalee Play Metallic! Make your room sparkle and shine this Diwali with this gorgeous metallic range! However, remember not to overdo it. Gold can be overpowering, so balance it out with neutral tones for the other décor elements.

Our wall claddings with Indian inspired motifs go a long way in creating that desired festive look. They come in various colours, and the designs range from plain hexagonal to 3D effect patterns. It can add an instant “wow” factor to your walls and make your festive decor really stand out!

What we love about Diwali is that it’s all about colours! At Bharat floorings, we believe that each colour is essential in making or breaking the space, each colour adds value to the decor and brings out the uniqueness of any given space.

It’s good to mix two different colours when you wish for one area to impart a bold and fun vibe, while the other area to have a more muted look to create a perfect balance between whimsical and understated. You can achieve such a look by using a contrast of bright and neutral colours within the same space.

Go floral 

A beautiful way to decorate your home is by adding floral elements. Nothing is more festive than adding fresh flowers in a traditional brass urli and placing it at the entrance of your apartment! It not only looks pretty but also gives a divine and refreshing feeling to your home! In the image below this urli is placed on the DashDashDot pattern at the entrance to create a statement look, which adds to the festive decor.

There’s something about the floral pattern that makes it a natural fit for residential spaces and a perfect choice for your festive space. Floral décor creates a cheerful vibe once added to any given space, be it your living room or bedroom décor. This design creates a perfect balance of old and new, luxurious and accessible.

If you’re opting to re-do the interiors of your apartment – tiles add a great statement, especially the floral pattern that complements the Indian festive décor vibe. One can never get tired of these spectacular, colourful floral-patterned tiles from the Heritage collection. These decorative patterns make an excellent choice for floorings, offering both beauty and durability. These beautiful patterns with intricate designs earn second looks wherever they are installed. They’re not only fun and fashionable, but they also add character.

All these décor elements play a vital role in adding that extra charm to your home this festive season. “Exquisite details make interiors sing” – Larry Laslo. Small details like the colour combinations, furniture, designs and patterns must all be in sync to make any space look lavish and rich instead of mismatched and haphazard. Your space should have a theme that your interiors should follow!

Hope this article assists you in achieving the apt festive décor for your space!

Bharat Floorings wishes you a very happy festive season!

“Innovation is the only way to win”, a very famous quote said by a well-known entrepreneur – Steve Jobs. Innovative and creative designs always excite us. We love to come up with different cement tiles in unique patterns that help in enhancing the look of your space and keeping it up-to-date as design trends keep changing. But a material that is so versatile and looks so good deserves to be utilized in every way possible besides just on your walls and floors! Yes, we’re talking about CEMENT.

Our love for all things cement is no secret. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that we have an entire range of objects created using nothing but cement! We have a splendid range of cement objects lined up for you at Bharat floorings, each one having a unique character and story to it.

A very inspiring product range to arrange your office stationary is the desk organiser – Akshara introduced recently at Bharat floorings. Akshar is a range of cement desk objects inspired by the Devanagari script. The three letters developed currently are ई, त and फ. These objects were designed as organizers for cards and pens, but they also double up as paperweights. They make quite a statement when placed at your desk or workstation. The individual blocks can be placed as a standalone or as a group to create a rich heritage look.

Cross Weave Concrete Planters:

There’s more than aesthetics to this look: plants are believed to be good for health and help clean the indoor air. So, why limit plants only to the outdoors? A lively addition to Bharat floorings cement object collection is the “Cross Weave Concrete Planters”. The inspiration behind these beautiful cross weave planters comes from Nagaland.

Weaving is a traditional art handed down through generations in Nagaland. Each of the tribes has unique designs and colours, reflected in their striking shawls, shoulder bags, decorative spears, table mats, wood carvings, and bamboo works. Having been inspired by this traditional pattern we came up with these decorative planters. These planters are a contemporary way to display houseplants, cacti and succulents in a stylish way. They are designed to uplift your space and make it look impressive. Bringing the outside in is an interior design trend that's kicking up a storm. It's great to add a bit of greenery as it makes the space come alive! Add some instant warmth to your house by using these plant holders in soothing colours!

Tangram Fridge Magnets:

Tangram fridge magnets is an addictive puzzle consisting of dissected forms which are put together to form original shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form very specific shapes using all seven pieces, which may not overlap. It was originally invented in China a few thousand years ago. These tangram fridge magnets are fun to play with for you as well as your kids, who can learn quite a lot from them. Get these pieces to avoid the stagnant boring everyday designs. A new day, a new shape!

Candela - Tealight Candle Holder:

Vassaio – Concrete Tray:

This multi-utility tray is designed primarily as a showpiece for placing stationary, glasses, mugs or any other object. Perfect for the upcoming festive season!

Mini Tetrapods: 

The monsoon waves breaking against the land-reclaimer is one of our city’s beautiful icon. Mumbai is a city surrounded by seas and the iconic tourist attraction, Marine Drive is surrounded with a barrier, a rock shape structure that looks like Tetrapods. Inspired by this element we have scaled down this cast concrete sculpture to paperweight size just to highlight your work desk and give it a fun aesthetic, bringing Mumbai into your office and homes.

Each piece of all our cement objects are hand sanded, sealed and buffed to produce a smooth surface and to avoid scratches on the surface. Due to the handmade nature of this product, each piece may have small unique irregularities.
