From lamps made from threads to decorative items based on coconuts; here’s some stuff you would like to consider.

When Carol Bishop described October as the perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter, he perfectly captured the feel and essence of this month. Just when people cross the gloomy September, comes October with its festive joyousness. In a country like India, where the month begins with Navratri, followed by Durga Puja, Dussehra and Diwali, a lot of people plan their entire year centering this period.

Around the country, a lot of people even decide to take the big plunge and revamp their house decor during these festive days. After all, what better way to celebrate a festival than giving a new look and feel to your abode? When one even begins to think about house decor, all they end up wondering about is their future expenses.

But wait, decorating your home doesn't necessarily mean digging a hole in your pocket. You can always opt for cheap, but creative options to spruce up your abode. Other than options that you can create and make yourself, here’s a list of items you can purchase within a pocket-friendly budget.

From lamps made from threads to decorative items based on coconuts; here’s some stuff you would like to consider.

Lights, candles and lanterns:

Considering the fact that Diwali is not even a month away, it’s time you should start planning ideas to brighten up your home. While you may have decided to go for the old and conventional Chinese lights to make your house look like a ‘shaadi-waala ghar’, we suggest you take a detour this time. Opt for stylish lamps and lanterns complementing your wall colours and add a warm aura to your place. Placing lamps made of threads, stringing small lights along windowsills, lighting up with hand-made candles and creatively-designed diyas; there’s so much you can do to enhance the dreamy feel this time.

Creative showpieces:

Always advisable to fill up empty spaces at your place with nice exquisite small showpieces instead of dull and expensive stuff. The market is full of options gratifying the creative surges of the current generation. Sri Lankan-styled work of art that includes faces incarnated on coconut itself make for a good thing to start with. You can also go for pieces carved out of ceramic that not just lighten up your living room but also provide a feel-good vibe with its fragrance.

Crockery:

Ditch the usual means of serving your guests but experiment with bold and better crockery this festive season. Instead of getting your feet dirty going to the over-priced cafes and restaurants, chose to host dinners with stylish dishes. What if you could serve lip-smacking delicacies in sets made out of paper mache? What if you could beautify your dinner table with cutlery carved out of sea shelves? Step out of the usual and you’ll have wide variety of options to choose from.
