1.Change a single wall color for the festive season. Add an orange, blue or even a green to make the room look a bit more festive-Indian for the diwali season.

3.Add soft furnishings like cushions,throws,stoles,rugs and carpets to drastically change the look.
4.Use motifs and bright colors to welcome the festive season. Change the covers of Diwans and put throws on pieces u cannot change upholstery of. Modify your old zaree sarees to stoles or cushions and even a screen.
5.Change the accessories of the room to suit the festive season. Use colorful glassware, buy a new set of crockery to suit the look. Add fresh flowers and tea lights to further embellish the look for the evenings.
