The pandemic has led people to turn more and more inwards and return to their roots and traditions. Home décor that blends modern and ethnic style perfectly complements your lifestyle and gives a unique aesthetic ambience to your home. Go wild with prints, play with bold wall paints that resemble the colourful houses, play with nomadic patterns, indulge in traditional tribal upholstery to style your home for the New Year.
1. Play with texture in your living room
Texturize your wall with Dulux paints to add depth and character to your living room. You can play with tribal rugs and carpets as well as ethnic handloom cushions, woven cane or rattan baskets that enhances the basic colour palette of the walls.
2. Add ethnic artefacts
Place beautiful brass and terracotta artefacts in your home to lend an exotic and warm feel and uplift the mood in your living room. Hang puppets, bells, lanterns, wind chimes, to give a festive feel and a tradition touch to your home. Paint your walls bright yellows, deep reds and mellow greens with Dulux wall paints.
3. Be bold with your master bedroom décor
Put a bold single armchair in a warm handloom fabric, while the rest of your bedroom remains in neutral solid colours. Match the colours in the handloom fabric and the cushions you place around the room. Cleverly blend colours, textures, patterns and tones without losing out on the basic ethnic theme.
4. Warm and welcoming guest room
Use pastel colour wall paints in your guest room to elevate the experience of a warm and welcoming stay. An ornate cupboard, a large antique carved wooden mirror and lamp shades with indigenous prints make your guest room comforting.
5. Kitchen décor
Keep the kitchen walls light coloured and the upper cabinets in a pale hue to make the space look airy and light. The pots and pans can be in traditional copper, terracotta, steel and ceramic. The pickle jars giving a warm ethnic touch to your kitchen décor, makes one feel nostalgic about the time spent cooking with grandparents. All of these make your kitchen truly traditional and every bit ethnic!
Add a lot to your homes. There’s no such thing as too much of greenery. Pants upgrade all styles of interior décor and bring the whole look together. So, folks go green this winter! You can also experiment with ceramic pot holders or even brass and copper ones. The Dulux paint experience coupled with ethnic décor, traditional upholstery and artefacts give a personal touch making a house a warm and welcoming home. It can take time to understand your needs and find the right objects and materials to design such a home. But this is the only way to lend character and authenticity to your interiors. It goes without saying that family photographs are the key factor highlighted on a Dulux painted wall. All these elements tied together make for good ethnic home.
So, go ahead and experiment with your home design in this New Year. Play with ethnic home designs and have a joyous New Year.
