Devi Durga is all set for her homecoming. Are you ready to give her a grand welcome? Read to explore some trending design ideas
Durga Puja is one of the most awaited Hindu festivals in eastern India, especially in Bengal, Assam, Odisha and Bihar. This festival is all about new clothes, illuminated homes, colourful candles and endless sweets and savoury. The blue autumn sky with fluffy floating clouds, the white kans grass (kash phool) all over the fields, the subtle chill in the morning wind and the melodious sound of dhak collectively announce the most awaited news of Ma Durga’s homecoming. We all wait for the entire year to enjoy these five days of festivities with friends and family.
With time, we might move cities for better education or job prospects, but everyone tries to get back home and enjoy Durga Puja with friends and family during this time of the year.
But the recent pandemic has changed the way we celebrate our festivities. So, we thought of bringing you some simple yet thoughtful Durga Puja decor at home that will help you enjoy the festival even while being indoors. The home decor ideas are also excellent for infusing the childhood nostalgia of Durga Puja into your home, even if you are staying miles away from your hometown.
Bring Attention To Your Entryway With Durga Puja Pandal Decoration
The entryway sets the correct tone for your entire home and makes it look clean and beautiful. The Durga Puja theme wall art and two traditional walls hanging on either side, popularly called ‘chandmala’, becomes the focal point of your entryway and is sure to catch the attention of your guests. The idea is unique and highlights the traditions of Durga Puja beautifully. You can make a beautiful white rangoli (alpona) on the floor and place a lamp in the centre. Use the top of your modular foyer unit to put some lamps, flowers and other decorative items that will enhance the beauty of your foyer area. Use some fresh flowers and fairy lights to bring in the positive vibrations of the Durga Puja.
Make Your Dining Hall Look Grand With Some Durga Puja Special Decor
Durga Puja is incomplete without a grand sumptuous meal, be it the special ‘bhog’ or a variety of sweets like sandesh, rasgullas and much more. So lending a festive touch to your dining hall is a must during Durga Puja. You can get a new dining table or decorate the existing one with some handloom cotton table runners. Bring out our favourite crockery set for your guests. We have also added a Durga eye wallpaper to add a contemporary feel to your festive decor. The Trinayan theme wallpaper symbolises strength and depicts the real essence of Durga Puja in a subtle yet beautiful manner. Add some terracotta showpieces to highlight our rich culture and heritage through your Durga Puja home decoration.
This Durga Puja, Lend A Quintessential Bengali Touch To Your Bedroom
While decorating the home during festivals, we often focus on the living area and forget our bedrooms. So here we bring you some DIY Durga Puja decoration ideas for your bedroom. Red and white being the perfect colour theme for Durga Puja, why not incorporate it in your Durga Puja decor ideas for your home? You can use some traditional Bengali Jamdani saree and turn it into a beautiful curtain and a red and white bedsheet and pillow covers to match the theme. Place some kans grass on a tall vase and place it on your side table to bring in the authentic festive vibe. Some Durga murals, a traditional Bengali hand fan and a macrame hanger add to the upbeat vibrations for the wall. Amp up the side bench with hidden storage with some Durga motif pillow covers to highlight this stylish and functional piece of furniture.
Lend An Auspicious Vibe To Your Home With A Pooja Room
Missing those moments when you participated in ‘anjali’, ‘sandhi puja’ or ‘Durga baran’ at pandals? Well, it might not be possible to recreate the exact vibe of an elaborate Durga Puja pandal at your home, but we can give you ideas to create a similar vibe in your own little way in the comfort of your home. You can place a Durga idol or photograph in your pooja room, decorate the space with hanging lanterns and flowers. Place two Kalash with mango leaves and coconut at the entrance of your pooja room and a white rangoli on the floor. Rangoli is believed to bring in some good vibes and keep all negativity away from your family. Though traditional, these decor ideas are thoughtful and add a festive charm to your home interiors. You can also add a Durga photo on your living room wall to stitch your festive look together.

Durga Puja is also synonymous with catching up with old friends, pandal hopping the whole night and chilling with family.

So here is a unique Durga Puja decor idea to light up your balcony. Decorate the accent wall of your balcony with an intricate Durga mural. You can also add some fresh flower garlands to highlight the walls and railings and infuse a pleasant aroma and pop of colour in your balcony.
