Light Up Your Place With These Diwali Decoration Ideas For Living Room

Keep the room dividers open and light up each side of your main entrance with lace lanterns, floor lamps, string lights, flower garlands and diyas. However, make sure that it doesn’t look too jumbled and overdone. Change the old frame of your bulbs with patterned ones so that they emit light in mesmerizing patterns, just like in this picture. The overall colour scheme of this living room for Diwali seems almost perfect, doesn’t it?

Mandala Peekaboo For An Artistic Living Room Decor

If you have sufficient time to prep up your house this Diwali, opt for painting a Mandala pattern on your accent wall or using a full-size Mandala wallpaper instead. Known as magic circles, they are used as a symbolic decoration during this time to represent a body-mind-soul reconnection and a period of powerful existence. This Mandala pattern stands out in contrast to the brown wall colour and also blends in perfectly with the existing living room decor.
