With the present condition of our planet recycling is hugely important to sustain and take care of it. However, our efforts to recycle need not be restricted to the government, the municipal authorities or waste management companies. We as individuals can also contribute and help and have fun while doing so. There are awesome and creative ways to recycle your old stuff which you can take advantage of.
Every time we clean our house we wind up with a lot of stuff that we simply throw out without reconsidering that it can be reused and recycled to make something useful. Sometimes trash is not just trash, and it can be transformed and used in a million other ways. And if you can’t make something useful out of your old stuff, you can still probably make something beautiful!
Being committed and responsible towards caring for your environment and planet is the duty of every individual and we should all do our bit towards it. Here is one way you can use waste to transform it into something useful.
DIY vases from old bottles:
Did you recently have a house party and have a lot of bottles lying around? Transform your trash into beautiful vases that you can use to decorate your house. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to create something using waste.
Things you would need:
- A few bottles, or mason jars
- Warm soapy water
- Acrylic paints
First of all, start by collecting all the bottles. The more variety you have in terms of shapes and sizes the more you can experiment and play around.
Soak the bottles in warm soapy water and give them a good wash. Remove all the labels and stickers that are on the bottle.
In a bowl mix some acrylic paint with a little bit of water. Take a syringe and fill it with the paint. Empty the paint in the bottle and spread it coating all the sides evenly.
When all the sides of the inside of the bottle have been covered evenly in paint, turn the bottle upside down and leave it to dry. All the excess colour will drip away and the bottle will be evenly coated.
Once the bottles have all been painted in the same or assorted colours according to your preference, they can be used as vases.
We hope you enjoy making these vases. Jute ropes, motifs,etc,can be used to decorate the vases further. Let your creativity guide you in enjoying this process of creating something useful and beautiful.

While choosing accessories one must keep in mind the palette of the room. An empty room is a story waiting to happen, and you are the author. The accessories can be bold or subtle but they must compliment the general ambiance of the room. More is not always better. Sometimes simple, elegant accessories do the trick.
To add a touch of color and freshness to your house, plants are a brilliant option. However, maintaining them isn’t always easy and practical. Artificial plants are available in plenty and add a lot to your homes. A pop of green is always refreshing and relaxing. You can choose from this collection available exclusively at Plüsch Décor.
Pictures, collectibles from various trips, trinkets and souvenirs add a personal touch to your interiors. Your memories, if displayed properly make the space more your own and add warmth and comfort to it. Selecting appropriate frames for pictures, and tastefully decorating your collectibles, gives a whole new feel to you home.
Side-tables are a very important accessory. A flower vase on a side table, adds a touch of color and accentuates the beauty of the place. Vases are available in various shapes and sizes. Hence, using a single vase or even a combination of a few vases to create a centre table arrangement looks very elegant. The flower arrangement should complement the shape and color of the vase. At times, however if a combination of vases is used the need to add flowers doesn’t arise as the vases themselves form an installation. Plüsch Décor offers a wide range of flower vases that will go exceedingly well with every interior.
Lighting is a very important aspect of decorating your house. Apart from the electrical lights, candles go a long way in adding to the mood and feel of your interiors. Also the subtle light of the candles adds an old-world charm. Using aromatic candles can help in changing the atmosphere of the house as the aromas soothe and relax the mind.

Each space in your house has its own distinct character. With colours, accessories and personal items, we give each room a definite feel to give it a purpose. Fragrance is also an accessory that’s absolutely integral to give definition to your house.
Different fragrances serve different purposes. The way they make a particular room smell influences the kind of energy and mood you’d want that particular room to carry.
We’ll go over a few basics pertaining to the use of fragrance in your house.
1. Fragrance around the house should be a mellow affair. Take care that the smell is not too overpowering but just a faint hint that gives a kick to the senses of the people in the room.
2. Fragrance can be added into a room in various forms- potpourri, fragrant candles, diffusers and the like.
3. You can use fragrant oils, which are a combination of natural and artificial substances to induce a particular smell.
4.You can also use essential oils around the house. They are not only fragrant but also have therapeutic and medicinal properties. Did you know lavender essential oils help induce a good night’s sleep?
5.Your living room needs a subtle smell that is welcoming, something floral in nature. But if you’re having guests over, you can use vanilla to liven up the space with warmth and energy.
6. For a kitchen, you should take care that the fragrance doesn’t get in the way of the aroma of the food. Go for something oft like basil or thyme or apple. That’s mouth-watering yet not very intrusive.
7. The bathroom needs something fresh and fruity. Go for citrus-y fragrances that are bright and light.
8. The bedroom needs a soothing and relaxing note of fragrance. Lavender is always a good choice for its mellow properties. But fragrances like musk, orange blossom and vanilla work wonders as well.
9. When buying fragrant candles, rub your fingers around the wick to release the smell and then sniff to properly understand the kind of fragrance it will induce.
10.If you’re not into fragrances but still want your house to smell good- go for flowers. The smell would be natural and not seem induced and the notes would be extremely faint.
Fragrances are a great way to tie it all together in your home when it comes to how you want your house to look and feel. It tells your guest about the house in all its entirety and is a great way to turn a house into a homely space.

For those of us who live in the scorching tropical weather for most of the year, winter is a respite! And with an adequate amount of respite, comes a whole lot of bliss that the season brings - putting to rest the old and getting ready for the new!
Winter requires us to get prepared for the change in the air. And with that, it’s important to embrace the change into our homes as well.
Much like our Fall home décor guide, today we are going to present to you some of the trends of the year that have cropped up specially for the seasonal chill! This season, take a cue from your favorite old movies from the golden era because the roaring twenties are here to stay! Industrial looks meeting extravagance, give your home a little bit of luxury loving!
Here are 5 top trends of the season that you can incorporate into your homes this winter.
As is customary for winter, the mood turns somber and so does the color palette. Grey's are still going strong, with different shades of it thrown together to accentuate the various hues of it. The other big color palette to explore is royal shades of blue - Midnight, Prussian, Ink. It adds an element of sophistication to your home without being too overwhelming.
Continuing from the Fall, Faux fur rugs have found a firmer place around the house. Adding to that are hide rugs that come in rustic tonalities. Sheepskin exudes a warm and quality texture when used around the home in reserved amounts. Also, Denims are back! A lot of Denim fabric around the house adds a sense of jadedness that agrees with the season. Woody elements around the house are also coveted as it adds to the element of warmth. Knitted and woven fabrics are, without a doubt, also must haves.
Metallic accents are big this season. Explore different accents of metallic hues - coppers, bronze, steel and also combinations of them to give rise to more delicate tones. Pairing them with floral patterns brings out their rustic elements properly. Metallic accents can be incorporated into the house not only through color palettes but also through various pieces installed around the house - from décor items to exquisite fixtures.
It’s important to balance the metallic and dark elements of the trend with something that accentuates as well as contrasts them. Incorporate a lot of Natural elements into your home. Logs, firs, pines, acorns - they can all be used to decorate mantels and tables and bed-sides. Wreaths on the door also add to the festive season while serving key decorative aspects. Create centre pieces on porches with as many natural elements as you can get your hands on. Plants around the house are perfect additions to tie it all together.
Extending the industrial influence in décor from metallic, glass is also a show stealer this season. Colored glass induces a retro flavor around your home and is a breath of fresh air amongst all the somber elements we were already playing with. Mirrors with intricate panels are just as much important this season. Silver and copper detailing on the mirrors incorporates more metallic to glass and brings a touch of exuberance around the house.
The key is to go back in time and re-imagine your house against a few older decades to tie it all together. Don’t forget to add festive elements in abundance, making way for Christmas decorations and that New Year’s do you might hold in your home!
