GIFT IDEAS FOR A HAPPY DIWALI!!

The festival of lights brings all our loved ones together…it’s a time to spread happiness and optimism! But it is also an occasion where we rack our brains over the nuances of the home decor, the Puja, the delicacies to be prepared and specially the gifts we want for family and friends. But we think there’s no reason to lose sleep, over the “joy of giving”…when we have such fabulous ideas up our sleeves 🙂

It comprises of 1 big potpourri bowl surrounded with 5 tea light candle holders for some “perfumed lighting”.

7 UNIQUE SHELVING IDEAS!

A shelf is the first thing that pops in mind when you think of storage…but why only stick to the tried and tested types? Here we will show you 7 completely out of the box designs for shelves which will make you go “wow”!

This is a real Jaguar with its heavier parts removed and set up against the wall to act as a shelf!

This one is an interesting compilation of “crosses”…easy to get done too.

This fold out shelf is actually a mural painting, sectioned into multiple panels. Just a simple mechanism can convert it into a storage unit from wall decor. Incredible!

If you think pipes are just functional and can’t be a thing of beauty, think again…this space saving shelf cum coat rack looks super cool despite its simplicity.

a98123_shelf_6-pipe

This shelving unit uses taut cables fixed on a wooden frame, to hold books, magazines, clothes and so on…won’t be able to support very heavy items though.

a98123_shelf_7-brace-case

This wall unit celebrates the beauty of “differences”…and we love the space created for the guitar 🙂

“Hole in the floor”…sums up the idea behind these unusually designed shelves which look as if their bottoms have been sliced off!

ORGANIZATION IDEAS FOR THE LIVING ROOM…

There’s a reason why we call it the “living room”…we “live” here, enjoy with family and friends or just simply relax with a cup of coffee and a good book! We all have our own way to get the most out of this space. So making it look beautiful is very important. And let’s not forget, we usually have so much stuff that we need to figure out smart ways to design storage that pleases the eyes. The living room is a great place to go creative and come up with such solutions.

The first thing that comes to mind are shelves…simple floor to ceiling shelves can house tons of items, books, artifacts, stationery, photographs what not! Depending on the kind of things you want to display and the furniture in the room , you can choose a simple, new age look or a rough, rustic look or a plush, ornate look.

If you don’t want dust to get at your things or maybe want to store items which you don’t want your guests to see, closed cabinets are the best option…floor to ceiling and wall to wall cabinets are ideal for storing endless stuff. You can also go for a combination of shelves and closed cabinets or where only the TV shows (there is in built space to accommodate that)! Check out the images below for a clearer idea…

Other clever ideas are keeping pretty, matching bins (http://tinyurl.com/opytp64under the coffee table or designing a stylish table around the sofa where you can arrange things both on top and underneath. Cushioned seating benches with box storage below is a great multi-functional piece of furniture. A narrow console or entryway table with bins or baskets in the space under, can help a lot too! See below for a closer look…

And here’s a real off the beaten track way of storing things in the living room without looking shabby…a staircase which leads to the loft and offers adequate storage simultaneously!

So, think different and make your living room unique 🙂

BEAUTIFUL CEILINGS…

When it comes to home decor, it’s interesting how we don’t usually pay a lot of attention to make the ceiling look special or unique. It’s probably because we don’t “look up” all the time except when we lie down! But here are some images to show you how, using some funky or artistic decals on the ceiling can change the aura of a room completely…after all they are the easiest way to transform the look of a place instantly!

So see how you can beautify your bedroom, living room, nursery and even your kitchen? Specially for babies, using bright bold decals on the ceiling is a good idea to stimulate their senses since they spend so much of their time lying on their backs. For other rooms you can go for simple, sober motifs to get a mellow yet gorgeous feel…but remember ultimately, it’s always your choice and whatever you desire! So never hesitate from choosing something that will make “you” feel happy 🙂 Photo credit: Houzz
