4 Ways To Give Your Home a ‘Holi’ Look!

Mar 16, 2016

And the Festival of Colours- Holi is here! It feels like yesterday that we had our faces covered in mud colours. It’s time to get ready and welcome all the painted faces to your home & greet them with the Holi Special – Gujhias, Puran Polis & Thandai! But, is your Home ready to invite ‘em all? DezignGenie has got the coolest trends in colour for you to bring home this season.


  • Colour Blocking: Why not make a bold style statement in the true spirit of festivity? This Holi, pick two colours and splurge your walls with paint! DIYers are going to love what’s coming next – you don’t need a pattern; just a combination of two (or even better, three) colours on your walls and you’re set for the most stylish trend of the season! We also have something for the ones not feeling all too adventurous – just bring together home décor accessories of different colours while placing them against a light background. Exciting, isn’t it?

  • Metallic: We certainly enjoy painting faces with metallic colour, why not our walls? Don’t worry, it is not as daunting as you think… Metallic can also be portrayed in a subtle light. DezignGenie recommends two ways of dealing with this new glamour – White walls accessorized with gold or silver decoratives, or a small area with equivalent proportions of maroon and brass in the room. Add some sheen and shine to your home, designers! And let’s not forget that it’s one of the major Home Décor trends of 2016!

  • Black & White: Giving our readers a break from a dose of the rather uncommon colours, black and white still makes any room of the house look classy and timeless. Anything done with this combination, may it be white floors with a few pieces of black furniture, white walls with black frames, black and white cushions on a gray sofa (and the list goes on), will only make your room look more chic than ever!

  • Stripes: Now time to have some fun with everything we’ve read so far today! Have a spare wall which could give your room a transforming character? Use colour blocking or maroon and brass or white and black, as stripes on your wall! DezignGenie promises a simple room metamorphosing into a space of grandeur.
