~ Brighten up your Iftaar party with festive décor tips by Kansai Nerolac ~

Every festival brings some new colour, hope and happiness to life. Eid is a celebration of the spirit of kindness and brings to close a month of fasting.Popularly known as Eid-ul-Fitr it is a special occasion celebrated with pomp and generosity. Our homesare the backdrop for these festivities where we greet and host friends and family.

Kansai Nerolac, one of the largest decorative paint manufacturers in India suggests you gift your home with the Eidi of a fresh vibrant coat of paint and some other easy makeover tips to add some extra zing to your festivities.

Adorn your home with flowers:An elegant way to decoratethat never gets old! Add fragrance to your living and dining areas for Eid celebrations with flowers. Fill your vases with colourful flowers and put them on display to complement your wall colours and themes.For homes sporting a ‘Raw’ unfinished look set up vases with dried fronds and bamboo shoots. If your home decor is spring inspired or ‘Lush’ pair brightly coloured walls with white flowers and vice versa.Consider adding a few arrangements near the entrance of your home to greet guests in welcome.A slightly non traditional but green gifting idea could also be to give guests window flower boxes as takeaways.

Create an accent wall:

There is so much that a simple splash of HD paint on your walls can do to your home. Paint your home to welcome the festive season.If you feel like time is running out to paint your home before Eid, consider doing up just one feature wall in each room. Prioritise the living and dining rooms where you will be having guests over for the grand Iftaar party. Choosepaints with a HD (high definition) finish toamplify the festive feel of your room. HD Paints with have high washability so you can be rest assured that all splashes and stains will come off easily and the walls look as good as new well after your celebrations have ended.Textured walls are the new favourites. They not only add more character to the room, but also serve as talking points among friends and family.

Lanterns, Light and candles:

Eid décor feels incomplete without creative lighting. Add a few small spot lights to your main area to put emphasis on your home’s focal points. Do ensure that the lighting you select complements your wall colours.Too many bright white lights in a room with pastel coloured walls will make the lighting appear harsh. Instead opt for warm, yellow mood lighting that will help in exude a welcoming aura.Create corners with soft white lights and cushions for guests. Antique styled lanterns are particularly popular currently. On table-top these lamps serve as great centrepieces. Consider placing them on the floor if you prefer larger lanterns to add character to your room decor.Stringing rice lights along windowsills, room corners and door frames helps enhance the dreamy feel and create some great ‘selfie’ spots as well.

Memory Wall:

There are a lot of things that can be used to decorate the walls of a home in a tasteful manner.Wallswith family pictures and frames tell a story and can create focal points for any room. A collage of family pictures will set everyone reminiscing, creating a sociable atmosphere and give guests plenty to talk about.Consider collecting family pictures, or simply pick your favourites from Facebook or Instagram.Beautiful Islamic verses from the Quran may also be framed and displayed as wall hangingsor may be painted on the wall directly.

 Crockery:

No Eid is complete without a sumptuous spread of food. What better way to greet family and friends than with delicate china and porcelain crockery?Share your exquisitely crockery with those you love the most this Eid. Present the food in stylish platters to leave a lasting impression on your guest’s.Complement your dining sets and place holders with wall colours and offset these with distinctly styled decanters and dessert stands.

Adelaide Chair by BoConcept

 

Born in Denmark in 1967, Henrik Pedersen finished a degree in fashion design in 1990, and six years later he founded his design company 365°. Henrik’s passion is design. From fashion to product. And switching between categories is not a problem. As he puts it, “once you have been educated in design of any form, it’s quite easy to make the change. The creative mindset is the same. You just have to change your mental toolbox”.

Inspired by the curves of an acorn, Henrik Pedersen – a specialist in designing iconic chairs for BoConcept – has created in Adelaide a chair that is visually beautiful, supremely comfortable and fully customisable. In fact, the Adelaide chair comes in so many different options – varying leg materials and heights, with armrests or without, in plastic or upholstered in over 120 different fabrics and leathers– that you can basically design your own chair. Add wheeled legs and you’ve got a perfect fit for the contemporary home office. Combine a high pressure laminate seat with tubular steel or eucalyptus legs and you can even use the Adelaide chair outside.

Suitable for outdoor use

Take Adelaide inside out. By designing Adelaide with a plastic seat and legs in warm eucalyptus wood or tubular steel you can use the chairs outside too. They’re close to maintenance free and are a perfect to create the homely indoor feel in your outdoor space.

 

Adelaide is the essence of what BoConcept is all about. It´s not just a chair – but a true concept. You can play around and customize it to fit your exact needs

The modern concept of “free time” would have been completely alien to our predecessors. In the past, something as simple to us as washing clothes was a massive undertaking.

In addition, clothes cleaned by washing machines last longer, smell better, and are more hygienic than those washed by hand.

LG refrigerators are designed with a special emphasis on keeping the users’ food safer and their kitchen more organized. Food safety is of the utmost importance when considering health and comfort in the home and all of LG’s kitchen appliances are made with food safety in mind. The LG Knock on Door in Door Refrigerator lights up and becomes transparent when you knock on it. This way you can see what is kept in the refrigerator without opening it. Thus, reducing loss of cold air and enhancing comfort levels.

While air pollution is a global problem, developing economies have borne the brunt of the pollution lingering in skies above. The air that you breathe in your house can be cleaned by air purifiers thus alleviating the negative impacts of air pollution to an extent.
